    Re: Re: Re: Re:

    "And you don't actually keep a copy of your Key in your locks at home, do you? That would basically render the "Lock" concept useless."

    tHE ENCRYPTION IS in THE LOCK..and can be bypassed very easily..in MOST cases..I can show you the videos..

    But, without the hash, the system crashes,..,and there is no recovery.
    the LOCK is the program..and you insert the KEY..and its decrypted AS NEEDED using only the key. There is no pattern except the KEY. Which requires no HASH.
    BUT if you know HOW Algorithm WORKS, you can look for the Password in the DATA...unless someone SPREADS the KEY across the WHOLE of the DATA, its very easy to find..

    Like the key to a LOCK, if you take the Tumblers and spread them ALL OVER THE HOUSE, you wont get the lock OPEN, its in parts..

    ANd there is a difference in OPENING a door, and encryption.. Just using a password to OPEN the device/door is little or nothing..Encryption requires that the Key be used to READ the data..and this can Slow a machine down to a CRAWL. And does NOT tell you that OTHER encryption is NOT used for other programs..

    A Keyt to open the door lets you in, but Even individual encryption on EACh protected file could cause ALLOT of havoc..

    Re: Someone asked..

    iTS THE IDEA THAT
    even the election broad has no ability to CHECK, who is whom..
    Esp. if the DATA the person is using was created years ago..
    You hcan have old data that has never been verified, ANd no current pictures of the person, because you dont use/need a drivers license..
    EVEN so, a new drivers license gets updated HOW OFTEN?? And all you need is the old license. NOT until recently have they KEPT THE OLD LICENSE PICTURES..
    ANd there is no standard of requirements from state to state for PROOF of who a person is.. YOU CANT verify SS#, its against the law. AND SS# dont have PICTURES.
    I had to dig up my YEAR BOOKS from 30+ years ago..and that was proof.

    Someone asked..

    Long ago about the USE of fake ID, to register to vote..

    I made a few opinions on HOW it could have been done, and a few KINDA suggested I was not correct, and it was not possible.

    With this situation..Do we need much more proof?

    Re: Re: Landmines..

    They already do..
    But you didnt..

    The logic of a response..

    Re: Re:

    30 YEARS dealing with them and I think I have a good idea..
    Unles syou want it hard coded and use an internal encryption, based on hardware serial numbers..Or you want a rotating one(which would kill your battery in a week, and 2/3 of the people would forget it..)
    Finger encryption,, Dont make me laugh..Face ID...not really, unless you know a few tricks..KEY/FLASH CARD..maybe(but you need to remember to REMOVE IT)..

    If you want a few more tricks I could give you a few you may not know..BIO-METRICS SUCK..because you CANT CHANGE YOURS..(can be augmented, IF you know how)

    But they all must be stored in RAM..And it can be found..

    " FBI apparently had 6,900 locked phones in its possession. Wray claims this number represents "roughly half" of the devices in the FBI's possession."

    And they cant count the rest?? They are all sitting in piles with no TAGS..

    https://www.kanda.com/blog/programming/copying-serial-eeproms/

    This is a basic link, of tings WE DID YEARS AGO, and what should be able to be DONE NOW..

    But I dont think our INTELLIGENCE AGENCY is very smart..

    Get a Dummy phone, with a removable ram...COPY the original CHIP DATA(not the OS) AND DUMP it onto a CHIP and plug it in..
    And even if it cant be read.. The OS programing has been on the net for years..and they could PAY someone to RE-DO/OVERWRITE/create another OS that would read any data ON THAT CHIP.. At least REMOVE the part that Encrypts the data..

    An Encrypted chip, MUST have the DECRYPTION in the RAM..so that it can be changed/passworded..

    Landmines..

    Landmines in an open arena..
    MORE money for Lawyers..

    THE RIGHTS of the corporation to DIG into a site, HARDER, BY LAW...and have more Rights then our own Government..

    Old trick on HOW to kill a business..
    Take them to Court, Back and forth, EVEN if you dont win, for EVERY LITTLE THING..
    All those books Google has copied for EVERYONE..is NOW compromised.
    NOW google and FB WILL BE REQUIRED to monitor every post BEFORE ITS PUBLISHED...

    Fight back?? MORE MONEY,, lost..
    Said above..
    REMOVE ALL GOOGLE SERVICES(that is allot)
    REMOVE FB..

    1,000,0000 people will get the EAR OF THE POLITICIANS...QUICKLY..

    My question:
    WHY is the MPAA/RIAA running around the world to gather EVERY BIT of Audio/Video??
    So that they can SUE you for having ANY...ANY audio video they can prove belongs TO THEM..
    Since the copyright wasnt created IN THE PAST..it was RECENT, even tho the music/video was created A LONG TIME AGO..

    these folks are as BAD as the academic Journals...That take the RIGHTS away from creators, JUST TO PUBLISH...

    Another Gov. Agency?>>

    Really wonder Why this is even a THING..
    Letting another nation MONITOR data in other countries is NOT A GOOD THING..

    That is what would happen..
    Its the idea of Oops, we went to far, sorry about that, Over and over and over..
    WE WANT to install tracking software on the EU SERVERS..
    OR at the very least, a central Server farm to MONITOR in/out data from/to the EU..
    THEY wont Ask us/we IF they can do it HERE...they JUST WILL and apologize later..

    Ever Shoot someone and say, IM SORRY..and not get sent to jail..
    Apologies are for incidents and accidents, but NOT for deliberate FORCE AND USE..

    Its wonderful

    Iv seen SLOW and Boost speed on the net..
    Iv seen 16gig transfer in LSS THAN 30min, with a 150mbps connection.
    Iv seen the SAME connection take 6-8 hours..And HIT 56kbps..
    Iv seen Downloaders RUN GREAT, until you start up another connection like Youtube THEN FALL into the DIRT..For no reason..
    Not ALWAYS sure WHO is doing what, the ISP, the Main Server, the Downloader, WINDOWS slowing things down..

    eNFORCEMENT?

    Enforcement on both sides..
    Pro and Con..

    Lets think about a CORP trying to get away with something..Like RENAME something, and say its NOT the same as the other name..Its different, so its not covered by THAT law..

    Lets be a Enforcement agency..TRYING to Enforce the basic rules, and NOT get complicated.. While dealing with an Intelligent 2 year old, that Just renamed something, so it would NOT be the same..

    Try to be this agency and KNOW how things work, and All the parts needed to be Covered under regulations..
    4 Parts to DATA transfer..
    Send
    Receive
    THEN...
    How long it takes to GET THERE..
    HOW long it take THAT computer to Send the data..
    And each part of this adds to What You all call LAG..

    As an ISP, I Could take PART of this and Add Just ABIT of extra timing to Do things..

    So trying NOT to get complicated, MEANS you have to get complicated..

    Where is it??

    Dig dig dig,
    Dam, I know I put it in here..
    Dig dig dig..
    Dam, I must have loaned it out AGAIN..
    That Lie/BS detector is gone again..

  • Dec 6th, 2017 @ 12:02pm

    pAI, Allot of talking and NO ENFORCEMENT

    For all that he is/has done...
    HE ISNT DOING HIS JOB..
    "YOU'RE FIRED"
    He is in regulation and should be WATCHING what is being done, and ENFORCING the rules in place and reporting to the FBI and other agencies to ENFORCE THE RULES

  • Dec 6th, 2017 @ 11:39am

    I THOUGHT!

    the People elected and HIRED by us, were supposed to Protect us..BY THE RULE OF LAW..

    I Also thought we were Supposed to elect those SMARTER, AS SMART, but not DUMBER then ourselves..

  • Dec 5th, 2017 @ 1:02pm

    ILLEGAL

    This is gov. favoritism..
    Same BS, going on in MOST of our gov...for the last 30+ years..
    NEVER THE BEST, always the CORP that pays the most..
    NO MORE BIDDING..

    mAINTENANCE AND MATERAIls

    Lets ask the cost of ALL of this..
    Installation and materials..
    Its not That expensive when you consider that this ia a PAST job.
    Each state Supplies and generally helps and pays for interconnection across the nation(main trunks and relays, THE backbone)..GENERALLY following the Freeways..
    Each State and the Fed, have already paid MOST, for the last mile, inside cities and towns..

    AND if installed correctly, its a LONG duration installation and setup to Fix/repair/UPDATE, very easily..
    Underground, in many location is already PIPED, and ready to be done.
    Above ground telephone poles, give Ease of access, and the last time someone killed a telephone pole??(most are over 40 years old, p[iad for its own use)

    NOW..these companies are ONLY there to allow access TO THE INTERNET..not BE THE INTERNET..
    So these companies Installed or PAID for server farms, and the companies and Corps PAY for access to the PEOPLE...THIS is what we are debating..
    ACCESS to customers, and how many TIMES a Corp can be PAID..
    Like cellphones BOTH ENDS PAY..So they are being PAID 2 times.
    AND the internet, is that way NOW, but EACH CORP wants the OTHER group/companies/corps SERVER FARM access to PAY ALSO..
    THEN they are being paid 3 times. AND MORE for 3rd party server groups..AND access from OUT OF COUNTRY..

    In a fair market this would allow PENNIES to pay for each of these services. BUT ITS NOT that way.
    All that is needed is Maintenance(hardly much if installed properly)..Electrical power for the SERVER FARMS...And considering the AUTOMATED Sysops and admins...only a FEW of those..and a few people to answer questions and keep up the hardware..

    THEN we come to PROFIT.
    Who knows about Hostess Fruit pies??
    Who knows of a company called American, fruit pies..
    HOSTESS, cut back on the Fruit and pudding YEARS AGO..
    American, LEFT IT ALL IN..and charges the SAME/LOWER price per pie..
    HOSTESS almost went broke..(they should have and LOST all their recipes)

    Understanding and UNDERSTANDING..

    Anyone get the idea that its NICE to have OUR OWN people help find faults in servers and software??

    What happens when you BEAT a dog to much??
    A BEAT down dog or an animal that REALLY wants to BITE YOU..

    Re: True cheating should be regarded as a security problem.

    Love the reporting...
    But the game is missing something...
    A BUTTON..to report and RECORD the episode..

    AFTER:
    DONT BAN..LOCK the game they can play to ALL CHEATERS..
    Gun cheats
    Life cheats
    Wall cheats, can see everyone on the map, at range..and thru walls..
    GOD cheat..

    LET them cheat..

    WHO has the rights..

    To misconstrue, Obfuscate, re-interpret, Contest, Deny... The laws of this nation??

    1. Corps
    2. Government
    3. police officers..

  • Dec 2nd, 2017 @ 12:19pm

    Concealed??

    "the location of the fake cell towers suggested they might be the work of foreign actors. "

    Actors...Love that word..

    as well as Instigators, Initiators, and conspirators..
    This is a high energy item, to receive and RE-transmit cellphone service?? it would need to SIT, near an Tower and SAVE power or to HIDE easily..

    ODDS??
    it was a previous setup, that was dismantled..(ASK THE CORPS)
    Installed by the CIA to Confuse or MONITOR the area..and never Documented..

    This is a TOWER..not just an antenna..Any pictures?? Any tower design needs to be 20-60 foot high.. An antenna can be Much shorter, but looses out on Signal strength..unless you are VERY close to an ALREADY setup Tower..
    AND cellphone towers are MONITORED/FENCED/... The company OWNING them wants NOTHING to happen to them..and a small security system is INSTALLED for anyone entering..

    With only knowing that THERE ARE Towers int he area, why isnt there MORE info.. It has to have POWER..It has to be RECENT to another location..The equipment inside IS NOT BASIC or STUPID..it has to be SETUP, and controlled..

    sUBJECT?

    "from the everyone-is-equal-before-the-law,-but-some-are-more-equal-than-others dept"

    From everyone is equal before the law, unless WE SAY SO..So!
    (how can yo be more Equal??)

    MOST laws are put into place AFTER THE FACT!!
    If you goto the Gov. and explain you are going to do the SAME, but in a different way to MAKE something GOOD happen, you SHOULD be able to bypass the law..

    EVEN in the USA, we have 1-2 hemp farms..IF you can find them. We have a few Biological facilities, for strange reasons, as to MAKE SOLUTIONS for them..
