Let’s audit Truecrypt!

This premise was referenced in linuxbsdos and certainly presents a valid point for auditing Truecrypt, if no one knows who exactly wrote it…




The Toolbox


The Security Bit


Just to clarify, the public key is used by the
remote user to encrypt to the user, and to verify signature from the
user, and the private key is used to sign a message or file (called
non-repudiation) as well as to decrypt messages encrypted with the
public key. The signature is hash of the message or file, and that hash
is signed by the private key of the user. That way, any changes to the
file would result in a change of that hash, which would cause the
signature mechanism to fail the check. I generally draw it out this way:

Private Public
sign message ———> signature verification (non-repudiation)

Is it Alive  (or is it another UbuntuOS…)?


During this segment of the show, I challenge Mat and Tony to identify whether a Linux Distro is alive or dead? Every other week, I twist the concept for our game show and challenge Mat and Tony to decide if the named entity was a Linux distribution or something else. Previous twists have include whether the distro was French, Ubuntu-based, a super hero, or my favorite twist, a bar drink. I’ll have a Liquid Lemur with my chips, please.

This week is twist week and in the spirit of Ubuntu’s latest release “Saucy Salamander” I challenge Mat and Tony to decide whether the named Linux distro is based on Ubuntu. As is customary during twist week, extra credit will be given if after Mat and Tony correctly identify the distro, they also correctly identify whether it is alive or dead. The items for this week’s show are:
