There are plenty of libertarians in the F/OSS movement who don't like GNU and Stallman's personal politics.
In fact, the paper notes that security has been a big hastle in IBE-type encryption, as has revocation of keys. The authors claim, however, that they have accomplished both. Which implies the public key can't be an arbitrary string like an e-mail, since presumably you would still want messages going to said e-mail address, otherwise why bother revoking when you could just change address?
Anyways, this is not the only cool new crypto concept in town, but it is certainly one of the most intriguing as it would be a very simple platform for building mostly-transparent encryption into typical consumer apps. If it works as advertised.
I present it to Slashdot readers, to engender discussion on the method, RIBE in general and whether (in light of what's known) default strong encryption for everything is something users should just get whether they like it or not."

Oh and thanks to the joke of a border according to my friends in law enforcement old fashioned slavery is alive and well too, they say you can buy a girl from the coyotes for as little as $5k in cash, $10k and they'll deliver.
I annoyed my kids when they were younger - pointing out the only Pokemon with a power I admired was Snorlax.
Man jumps White House fence, enters building DRESSED AS PIKACHU!
Did you see the stats for the growth of their middle class over the past 15 years or so?
I'm not disputing that the country is ardently capitalist and has tightly guarded elite circles. But for most people in there, that's not where they are aiming for. What they want is basically just comfortable living, and their standard for it is getting pretty close to what the West enjoys. And with every new generation, there are millions more actually enjoying it - even though there's still hundreds of millions locked out. But for now, the trend is good.
Don't worry. I suspect Apple is still flexible enough to whip around and ensure that they can parade their way into new markets and shut out any potential startups.
I'd prefer people - trained or not - refrain from firing high-power rifles at airborne targets.
There's no reason the drone needs to transmit anything while it's tasked. Programmed waypoints and actions, and it uses GPS to navigate. Switch on control comms for takeoff/landing.
You really are an asshole, aren't you? The attitude isn't necessary.
You should get an ICMPv4 response with a type value of 3, and code value of 3.
RST happens when something borks up in an existing session, not in response to a SYN. (exception: when firewalls/NAT gateways are configured to reply with an RST, instead of dropping or ICMP).
If he actually cares about decent hard working Americans he saves Amazon because Amazon investors at least own the company and Amazon is a US company providing a useful potentially profitable service.
Alibaba investors on the other hand are Wall Street gamblers who don't actually own anything other than some moon beam and unicorn promises that Alibaba really will distribute its profits to the Cayman islands company they actually own. That also presupposes the Chinese government won't just decide the whole arrangement isn't legal in the first place.
I know I can't believe this facts are being so under reported myself. The Alibaba management or the Chinese government (which probably could no matter what) is basically able to do just about anything they want and completely screw the investors who will be left with essentially no recourse legal or otherwise.
Its crazy to get into this deal where equity investors have essentially no rights or claim.
The cynic in me thinks the institutional guys buying up this IPO know this perfectly well and plan to unload it all on the retail folks before the next show drops. This deal stinks in so many ways; hopefully good people and their 401k managers will have enough sense to stay the hell away from it.
