When I was young, I worked as a security guard. I was also known for being a smart ass. This didn’t make me popular, as most of my friends and coworkers did not share my sense of humor. However, I took it as a compliment and carried it with me everywhere I went. I think this was a way for me to show others that I had a sense of humor, that I believed in myself, and that I could be a good person.
Thats a good idea. A good way to show that you believe in yourself. It might even help you pass your self-awareness test. But, on the downside, I think it might make us slightly less likely to spot that there’s a secret message hidden in the screen-capture.
To be perfectly honest, I see the screen-capture as something that might help us. It might even be the secret message that we were looking for. I’m not saying that I would go out and encrypt that message. But there are ways that we can use encryption to make sure theres nothing hidden in the screen-capture.
What do you think? I think this could be the secret message that we were looking for.
That’s the problem with so many of the recent encryption trends: they’re so new and revolutionary that they’re almost unrecognizable as actual new technologies. For example, I’m not sure how far the NSA-backed RSA algorithm has come on the internet, but I know its capabilities are very much in the same ballpark as the encryption used in The Matrix.
I think in a future where everyone is using something like RSA to encrypt data on their iPhones, there would be a lot of encrypted messages that you could send to your friends to be sure they got it right. Unfortunately the NSA and others are using RSA and other encryption algorithms in ways that we can’t be sure about, so we can’t be sure about what the message says. That’s why I like to check for things like this on a weekly basis.
Its like the good old days again. And now I’m looking for encrypted messages on my iPhone when I go to sleep.
Like most encryption, a message is encrypted using some algorithm. This can be anything from “encryption” or “hashing,” to “key-generating algorithm,” or simply “an algorithm for encrypting stuff.” The algorithm is what protects the message from being read in any of the ways the NSA wants it to be. If an NSA-style attack is used to read a message, it will be cracked.
As a reminder, the NSA wants to crack every message. If you’re not familiar with that term, it essentially means they want to crack every encrypted communication from your phone. They want to crack all of your phone calls, emails, instant messages, and any other communication that is encrypted and has a key you can find.
The problem with this is that encryption itself is broken, and if the NSA can crack our messages using a method that is broken, then they can crack our phone calls, emails, instant messages, and any other communication that is encrypted and has a key you can find.
