It's hard to keep track of all the NSA leaks. Here's a nice summary of what we currently know: http://www.reddit.com/r/technology/comments/1m773a/how_the_feds_asked_microsoft_to_backdoor/cc6hes1

We really are getting screwed hard by the NSA.

**Fact 1**: The NSA designs the standards for encryption schemes and algorithms.**Fact 2**: What's more, it designs them such that they're vulnerable (http://arstechnica.com/security/2013/09/new-york-times-provides-new-details-about-nsa-backdoor-in-crypto-spec/)**Fact 3**: The most widely used cryptography schemes (RSA/DSA) might get broken soon mathematically (http://www.technologyreview.com/news/517781/math-advances-raise-the-prospect-of-an-internet-security-crisis/)**The kicker**: The most recommended alternative (Elliptic Curve cryptography) standardization came from... the NSA.Add a comment...

So it

See the presentation:ย http://www.isecpartners.com/media/105564/ritter_samuel_stamos_bh_2013_cryptopocalypse.pdf

*seems like*(to some people anyway) RSA and others will fall soon... and guess who standardaized the only viable alternative they also promote (I don't blame them)? Yup, the NSA. I don't*really*think there's something fishy at play, but as I'm getting more and more paranoid, this doesn't help.See the presentation:ย http://www.isecpartners.com/media/105564/ritter_samuel_stamos_bh_2013_cryptopocalypse.pdf

MIT tech review article on Black Hat conference, on research by Joux on the discrete log problem underpinning RSA & Diffie-Hellman encryption schemes: "Academic advances suggest that the encryption systems that secure online communications could be undermined in just a few years."

Many of the questions I wanted to ask are answered here. Very important conversation.

Strongly recommend this paper as a follow-up to the lower-bounds given by Frick and Grohe in 2004. ย Note that this also contains a proof that model checking of MSO_2 is not even XP for cliques; the first proof was given by Courcelle, Makowski and Rotics in 2000 but relied heavily on old results by Fagin which are somewhat hard to parse. The proof in this paper is self-contained and actually pretty insightful. #spnetwork #recommend arXiv:1302.4266
