Hacker NeededPosted by kodrik on Tuesday August 19, 2014 @ 12:58pm
[ 2 replies ]
I need a security review to be done on a system we run, so we basically need someone to try to hack it anyway possible and to record the methods used and the results. Password stealing and downloading of data, sql injection, server access...
Your GPG keys ... I has them.Posted by Krux on Friday December 20, 2013 @ 10:52am
[ 4 replies ]
This is crazy. Apparently it was figured out how to break 4096-bit RSA used in GPG by listening to the CPU, or rather the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply for the CPU, which make noise in response to the voltage fluctuations caused by calculations being performed to decrypt messages.

BackupsPosted by Krux on Thursday August 30, 2012 @ 07:38pm

So this is more for Stealth, since he has like all of the TBs at home. But I was looking for a decent backup solution that offered unlimited storage and handled Linux without having to mount a samba share or some shit.. So my co-worker suggested Crash Plan, as that's what he was using. Seems they have a family unlimited plan which lets you do up to 10 computers. And most important for those paranoid security types, you have the option to encrypt your data using a 448-bit encryption key that they don't have. It's also pretty inexpensive considering what you get. And with about 4TB of data I need to backup, I figured it's worth at least trying out for a year to see how I like it.

On the topic of ACLs, firewalls and routers..Posted by Stealth on Friday January 15, 2010 @ 03:03am
[ 68 replies ]
I'm going through my 'list' mailbox and noticed a good sized thread on Firewalls vs ACLs in routers, etc. There are basically two camps, one saying with ACL's in routers and switches, why waste time with another device and something else that could slow down the service, the other, believes firewalls are good. I suppose it's going to depend on whats behind the device, and what you are protecting, but would tend to think that hardware based firewalls are going to be better at protecting machines that routers with ACL's, but then again, I don't run big data centers or even hard-hit outside facing servers.

Defcon 17Posted by Krux on Tuesday July 7, 2009 @ 12:31am

So who's planning on going to Defcon? I'll be there, likely banging my head against some strange encryption puzzle in the LosT@Con Mystery Challenge or hitting up the hardware hacker village, since I've been getting heavy into electronics lately.

I have no real use for one of these, yet still I want one: Micro BallCam, which is a DVR in the shape of a 1.5" clear ball. Probably would be neat to have for some model rocketry cameras, if say you really wanted to spy on your wife, but from space.
