    Not paid to care is a British sentiment. This bullshits' however -- above board -- everyone agrees at the very least, a small bit. :)

    Edit: time to send puns over board along with the mentality and absurditiy.

    We humans try our very best to make the more things that could become dangerous, more secure. Good night Enjoyed the talk.

    Needing a hobby, there are things to consider.
    Crypto is one of those things always bothersome, and there is also thing to laugh at.
    https://twitter.com/iridiumbrowser
    https://osb-alliance.de/

    looking at some build scripts, most turn off NaCL library by default when building chromium.
    https://nacl.cr.yp.to/features.html
    So here you have a list of things not to do, like RSA 4096 bits -- larger is not always better.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SHA-1#Comparison_of_SHA_functions

    And to quite a snippet from the iridium build script:

    And in the https://github.com/iridium-browser/iridium-browser-dev repository.
    Lots of stuff gets pulled in that should be using libsodium, which is why these musings are relevant to this thread as ORTv4 uses libsodium and has its own libgoldilock where ed448 gives 224 bit security; and olabini's implementation looks quite good.

    So this in context, the person that adds SHAKE256 support in Ola bini's goldilocks library may also get arrested. SHA3-512 is most probably however, https://keccak.team/keccak.html , which implementation though! Right so... https://github.com/XKCP/XKCP , anyone that likes to code maths and aren't alergic to assembly and C / GO....

    World of IT has so much to laugh at, according to most recomendations; assuming things are broken. And everything said here could be wrong, as it really is such a mess. You'd likely need clearance in a stock exchange or a larger bank to actually know.

    All this combined, assuming this is true and that github.com doesn't use SHA3, I'm wondering if he shared the code and placed it elsewhere, as it would be possible to compromise.

    Something something, Assange needsa a whambulance for not having had enough attention.

    And I may need a German VPN to access the source code of iridium browser from https://iridiumbrowser.de.

    To some things up:
    https://ericsink.com/vcbe/html/cryptographic_hashes.html

    Last stable release of this is 2013 http://veracity-scm.com/ .

    Think this perhaps concludes this thread! :p

    Don't be naive if anything related to this is a hobby and you can, say, build a supercomputer as well.

    Lucikly I've never coded anything but bare necessities.

    And yes:
    https://git-scm.com/docs/hash-function-transition

    Git is still on SHA1 it seems, go figure! (or sha2-256 which is less than 224) -- whutaver!

    Not that anyone is asking me what the biggest trust concern is, but....
    Compilers ignore empty spaces, so can be used to search for a collision.
    One of the oldest and more problematic security problems involve compilers, and only way to truly get around that is something called bootstrapping. Haven't used an OS that had this as an option since Gentoo allowed it in 2003 or something.

    Don't really know much about the reference, but CopperOS costs an arm and a leg and kinda requires you to compile it yourself.
    There are however rules for most of those involved, where trojans usually don't.

    And blake2b is currently the best option for a secure hashing function.
