It's called Cryptography.
There's nothing really new here.
Yup. EBC or CTR mode (which OpenSSH doesn't bother to enable) eliminate most of those security worries.
Blowfish is a solid cipher. I'm disappointed that I have to compile my own OpenSSH builds now with it re-enabled. What a silly joke this 7.0 release is going to be.
We seriously need to update Dropbear or some other SSH implementation to make this world better than it currently is.
While blowfish-cbc is going away, which uses Cipher Block Chaining mode, I find it a little strange that OpenSSH does not offer the more secure blowfish-cfb, blowfish-ecb, or blowfish-ofb ciphers. They're certainly in OpenSSL, though blowfish in CTR mode is curiously not present in OpenSSL.
Frankly, why not offer CFB, ECB, OFB, and CTR modes for all ciphers that support it?
OpenSSL does have a permissive license, but several of the algorithms are inappropriately and probably illegally included in that "license" because they aren't legitimate implementations, like IDEA, RC4 (arcfour), and RC6.
We have a viable alternative. It's called NSS from Mozilla, and it's free of all patent encumberments that have plagued LibreSSL/OpenSSL/SSLeay to this day. It also offers FIPS compliance.
Paraphrasing a downvoted-to-oblivion comment:
You don't need to know much more:
1) All income is taxed at some point. 401(k) is taxed later at a lower rate.
2) 401k is based on investment earnings
3) If you have a well diversified selection, what goes down, must come back up
Another predictable answer from a holier-than-thou, American-bashing Slashdot reader. Seriously, retirement plans really aren't that hard to understand.
A predictable answer from Slashdot. It really isn't that hard to understand.
Wow. I have colleagues who routinely borrow from their 401(k) accounts to buy exotic performance cars and things like that. Their 401(k) retirement accounts are doing just fine, thank you, thanks to financial literacy.
Anyone who doesn't bother to understand how a 401(k) works deserves the penalties they get. The US education system needs to teach this as a part of their required curriculum NOW.
I don't think Fujitsu, Texas Instruments, Atmel, or Cypress Semi would agree with you on the opulence of the SPARC architecture. It has had a very vibrant community of licensors for a long time. The hyperSPARC, TurboSPARC, and SPARC64 VI aren't even Sun products, to name a few.
In space, no one can hear you fart.
