"While running for the Democratic nomination in 2008, Barack Obama called whistleblowing “an act of courage and patriotism” that “should be encouraged rather than stifled as they have been during the Bush administration.” Since then Obama's administration has prosecuted an unprecedented number of leakers or whistleblowers, more than every previous administration combined."

"Obama, who hasn’t offered a word of understanding about the hard choices taken by the whistleblowers, could show some backbone and pardon them all."

Murray Polner: Justice has unfortunately taken a beating during the Obama administration, given its pitiless pursuit and punishment of whistleblowers who have been viewed by some as virtual traitors for informing on programs and policies federal agencies would rather keep from the press and public.

Argues that individual officers at the bank should be punished, not the shareholders.

"So why did the SEC not go after Deutsche’s executives? The most obvious concern is that Deutsche’s top lawyers “revolved” in and out of the SEC before, during and after the illegal activity at the bank. Robert Rice, the chief lawyer in charge of the internal investigation at Deutsche in 2011, became the SEC’s chief counsel in 2013. Robert Khuzami, Deutsche’s top lawyer in North America, became head of the SEC’s enforcement division after the financial crisis. Their boss, Richard Walker, the bank’s longtime general counsel (he left the bank this year) was once head of enforcement at the SEC."

"This goes beyond the typical revolving door story. In this case, top SEC lawyers had held senior posts at the bank, moving in and out of top positions at the regulator even as the investigations into malfeasance at Deutsche were ongoing."

"*This took place on the watch of Mary Jo White, the current chair of the SEC, whose relationship with Mr Khuzami and Mr Rice dates back 20 years. She bears ultimate responsibility for the Deutsche fine.*"

"In 2010 I joined Deutsche from Goldman Sachs as a vice-president in the market-risk department. I am a mathematician and had worked in risk-modelling at other banks. When I joined Deutsche I was not made aware that an internal “investigation” was already under way into the inflated valuation of the bank’s $120bn portfolio of exotic credit derivatives."

"Within a few months, though, I realised something was very wrong, and I called the internal hotline. That is when I met Mr Rice. He was then Deutsche’s top lawyer for compliance and regulatory affairs, and asserted that our conversations were subject to “attorney-client” privilege and could not be disclosed. I did not agree and was fired."

Bouncy Castle Java API Release 1.55 now available

This release sees further work on the post-quantum provider with the addition of the NewHope (March 2016 version) key exchange algorithm and the SPHINCS signature algorithm. The McEliece implementation has also been revised and now has KeyFactory implementation for it as well. The DANE API has been updated to reflect the latest standard changes. SHA-3 support has been added for HMAC as well as for the DSA, ECDSA, DDSA, and ECDDSA signature algorithms. SHA-3 support has also been added for RSA signatures and OAEP encryption. Support has been added for the GOST R34.11-2012 message digest as well. The TSP API now supports millisecond resolution in time-stamps and TLS supports RFC 7685 and ECDH_anon key exchange. The CMS password recipient generator now supports PRFs other than SHA-1 as well. In terms of bug fixes: issues with cloning of BLAKE digests, an occasional error in the Poly1305 calculator, UserNotice issues with empty sequences, and validation issues with time-stamp requests containing extensions have all been fixed. CRMF now recognises when non-default OAEP parameters are used and issues around the encoding of parameters for ECIES/IES have also been addressed.
Further details on other additions and bug fixes can be found in the release notes file accompanying the release or at https://www.bouncycastle.org/releasenotes.html

As always we are grateful to the people and organisations who have contributed/donated to the project and you can find the updated list at https://www.bouncycastle.org/contributors.html We would also like to thank holders of Crypto Workshop support contracts once again we were able to contribute additional time back to this release through left over consulting time provided as part of the support agreements.

"“When you grow up in the South, you hear all the time about your ‘heritage,’ like it’s the greatest thing there is,” he says. “When I hear that word, I think of grits and sweet tea, but mostly I think about slavery and racism, and it pains me. Newt Knight gives me something in my heritage, as a white Southerner, that I can feel proud about. We didn’t all go along with it.”

True words.

"At the same time, most of the software industry makes its decisions like a high school teenager: they obsessively check for what’s cool in their clique, maybe look around at what’s on Instagram and Facebook, and then follow blindly where they are led. Around these technologies they form cliques of conformity, even going so far as to carve their own identities around the technological niche they fit into—they even cover their laptops with their gang colors–and hate and complain about things that are strange or different."



Last week I wrote It’s the Future, a piece that satirized the container ecosystem, lightly mocking Docker and Google and CoreOS and a bunch of other technologies. Lots of Docker enthusiasts enjoying being the butt of the joke, but it was also much loved and shared by lots of people yelling “I told you this was all bullshit”.
