Nothing to say...

I'm french canadian, living in Montreal. You can call me Jay, I'm 20.

I dream to travel in England, Australia, Algeria, France and Germany.

Concerning computers: I have a couple of projects in my head, but I need time and money, so I work on them but slowly and I'm getting more experience.

I know HTML, CSS3, PHP, MySQL, C#, Javascript... From basic to mid-advanced, for a couple of them.

I'm on a computer ~ 50-70 hours per week (I'm not a little nerd, I have a social life too, don't worry! ;)). I like to learn from a wide variety of subjects.


I'll update this more often than you think ;)

comment How to store keys for a cascading encryption?
Thank you very much for your answer! I'm thinking implementing it in python and call the script from a php webpage or something like that. I'll think about it after planning the logic behind this cascade encryption.

No ECB mode, I know hw bad it is :) Thanks for your concern. And yes, key 4, 5, 6 is key 1, 2, 3... my mistake (It would be a bit too paranoid)

Thank you Joe :) (the obvious is hidding from me)

"Linking identity to public keys is out of scope for pure crypto." Thanks for the tip. I'll try to figure out how to do that. Do you have any good article explaining what is a web of trust and how to implement it? It would be great. thank you for your help.

Yes I know I need to sacrifice time for more security, unfortunatly hehe. Is Twofish better than serpent? I know it was a finallist for AES too. "it was designed to make the encrypted data is random as possible, so it includes built-in plaintext whitening and other mechanisms that cause it run slower than AES but end with potentially more secure ciphertext." And according to wikipedia, they breaks 11 rounds of the Serpent cipher, but it have 32 rounds, so I'm safe for a while, right?

Yeah, it's way I wrote "paranoid" hehe. If some are talking about it, it's because it's coming "soon"... but anyway I'll use AES 256 and everything is going to be fine :) To verify identity, any idea? A hash of the key can easily be compromised if Eve is good enough to put her evil key, she's going to be wise enough to change the hash accordigly, right?

Thanks CodesInChaos. And what do you think is the best way of doing that?

Is this why we need signature? And if it is, how to implement it?

So the public key need to be as much secret as possible? (CodesInChaos: One article here: threatpost.ca/en_us/blogs/…)
