SSL isn't good enough. Your website can be hacked.
Help solve the problem by advocating these RFCs:

TLSA (formerly DANE for DNS) Fixes the hackable CA problem

TLS-OBC: Fixes TLS, and the Related Domain Cookie Attack


About me
I have no relation to the above sites; I am just an advocate

Why "makerofthings7"? It's a challenge to "make seven things in my life of significant quality and value". Who knows if those things will take the form of software, art, or people. (I'm not married, no kids yet)

comment How do the following new (2013) ECC curves compare in security or efficiency?
If you refrain from closing I'll make the requested modifications later tonight.

comment If its possible to derive the public key from a private key, why can't we go in reverse?
I see. There is more than one notation style. That has been confusing me for quite some time, as I cross reference my books.

I'm not sure if this kind of key recovery applies to the 3 scenarios. Again this is all self study so if you have a better path to learning, please do share.

@CodesInChaos Thanks. From my algebra background I see A = aG as simple variables. Is the difficulty inherent in the fact we're looking at a multiplicative cyclic group? My intent with this question is to study the simplest approaches to key recovery with crypto the following categories: 1: integer factorization, 2: discrete logarithm, 3: ECC discrete logarithms.

comment What is a Non-Interactive Zero Knowledge Proof?
Would this MAC for anonymous credentials be considered a non-interactive ZK proof?

@DrLecter I just added details on my use-case
