#Interview:

How to pique your #curiosity in #cryptography ...

We talked to the cryptographer David Wong about crypto-related blogs worth reading and exploring in an interview. We also asked him about the changing landscape of the crypto-world and the awareness of IT security issues.

I've had trouble with programmers even being willing to describe effectively what public key cryptography is.

I literally took guesswork and trial and error just to figure this one out.

Prime Number / Prime Number = Public Key

#privatekey #cryptography

Come on you assholes, leaving out crucial information in a presentation lecture is not professional--at all. #cryptography

It also randomly picks one of three different possible keys. So even the receiver (such as myself) has to pick all possible keys to decrypt the message.

#ruby #cryptography

For anyone interested in sneaker networking and cryptography, I've devised a system where there is: a public sender who has all the keys, and a private user that also already has the keys.

So when sent across the wire, only the two correspondents have the keys to decrypt the message.

Going to put in some fixes for Frequency Analyses in a little bit. #ruby #cryptography

#introductions re-doing my introduction because my first one was awful. :P

I'm #nonbinary #autgender, I use they/them pronouns, I'm #actuallyautistic.

I'm here because of @cassolotl (who you should totally follow if you haven't already).

I like #programming #electronics #infosec and #DIY, among other things. I also like playing with #cryptography even tho I find it really hard. :P

I think #stimming is an #art and I really appreciate it.

If you're going to instruct me on public key cryptography, please try not to fucking mumble what you're saying. #cryptography

I just finished reading Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan. Wow, what a fun, clever book.

If you're looking for something to read that's smart, current and peaceful, with a great mystery and wonderful relationships, I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

It’s a tale of books and technology, cryptography and conspiracy, friendship and love.

@thomas That particular usability problem is why GPG will never be mainstream. Yikes! I wrote a user guide for this kind of stuff just to remind me how to set it all up. #cryptography

@translator fr Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same.
