You may think you dont have time nor the basic mathematical high-level education to become a cryptographer. But - jump and dive deep with full crash ahead. Look into 'On Round Optimal Statistical Zero Knowledge Arguments' at Crypto 2019. You will not die.

Try to understand what is the challenge behind and adapt to your real life.

Nobody too old to become a cryptocrack -)

We've surely hit a limit by now right?

I mean, come on, it's mostly nonsensical at this point.

I thought so too, but then I thought, what if this is the greatest non stop trolling ever.

By gads.. devilishly fiendish… You don't mean "a s-p-y"…???? TB isn't a spy, is TB????… No, no, silly. TB isn't, is he????

Quick, quick, get on to the Foreign Office… The Ministry of Jaclaz… We're being invaded… Get 'eyes in the sky', immediately!!!!

You must be joking, the limit has been hit, re-hit, beaten to death and the then dead limit beaten again and again countless times by now.

Quick, quick, get on to the Foreign Office… The Ministry of Jaclaz… We're being invaded… Get 'eyes in the sky', immediately!!!!

Are you taking my name in vain? 😯

Or is it a clever CCFWC (Cryptographic Challenge for Wannabee Cryptographers)?

No Jaclaz, that would be rude and disrespectful to do so.

Your observation above is, in fact, a far more useful way TB could have engaged with FF readers instead of making the quote

On Round Optimal Statistical Zero Knowledge Arguments' at Crypto 2019

with no link as to the website readers might want to visit to understand what TB is talking about.

Anyone who has zero-knowledge or low-level understanding about cryptography may find it extremely difficult to engage with TB when you look the content at Crypto 2019 - https://crypto.iacr.org/2019/acceptedpapers.html e.g. 'Statistical Zeroizing Attack Cryptanalysis of Candidates of BP Obfuscation over GGH15 Multilinear Map' ?

To make some use of this post (now that it exists) there are many well known books available on the subject of Cryptography; two useful books to know

1) Chey Cobb Cryptography For Dummies ISBN 0764541889 (2004)

2) Nigel Smart Cryptography Made Simple ISBN 978-3-319-21935-6, ISBN 978-3-319-21936-3 (eBook) (2016).

The years 2004 and 2016 period gives the reader a chance to learn of new developments (if any) that might have occurred over 12-years and whether they impact on the understanding on the basics of cryptography, or not. There are other well know books, as I said previously, I could mention but as a starting point the above are worth considering.

Moreover, given the broad church of practitioners and participants on FF it might have been helpful for the OP to have pointed out that cryptography is a subject matter in digital forensics and incident response (DFIR) and so on. CISSP exam has a supporting study guide that includes Cryptography (ISC2 CBK https://www.isc2.org/) and in the US there is a course about encountering encryption in digital forensics (https://niccs.us-cert.gov/training/search/champlain-college-online/digital-forensics-and-encryption)….

OP Start

RE Shortcut 2 become a cryptographer

OP End

RE stupid conversations following

TB if your posts structure a Fujisaki-Okamoto transform format, your crypto posts can fail as they do not ensure H (Enc asy/pk) is collision-resistant

Enc hy/pk ( m; δ) = Enc asy/pk δ; H δk Enc Gsy( δ)(m) , Enc sy/G ( δ)(m)

Is that an attempt to indirectly (and BTW not-so-politely) state that your initial post

is in any way less stupid than the replies you got? 😯

Well, you failed at it.

In case you need a motivational image for your WC's, here is one

I have to agree.

Maybe TB can find redemption by bringing Rolf Guttman back to FF.

I learned a lot from Rolf’s posts because he took the time to explain his ideas in plain English.

Rolf left FF due to objections over including Qassam on the forum, if I recall correctly.

I argue that the field of Forensics has a unifying force in that Forensics uncovers independently verifiable evidence. Qassam’s posts are very detailed and I can actually follow the steps he has taken. I was impressed by Qassam’s usage of Linux in analyzing Android phone’s.

My two cents true experts are never afraid to share their expertise with others. Perhaps TB can provide some cryptographic advice or war stories, written in a fashion such that readers could replicate his work on their own.

TB - please post a white paper or article about something you have learned about cryptographics and forensics that the FF members could apply in their own practices.

I have actually seen around a paper signed Tinybrain, cannot say if the Author is the same person, though.

Here it is on docdroid
