My uncle used to try to talk me into using an email encryption thing he found that used (or claimed to use) 2096-bit encryption. Assuming that's legitimate, I imagine it'll be a while before that gets cracked.

Heya, history buffs! I already mentioned this elsewhere , but I made a Pinterest board recommending a one-volume biography for each of the US Presidents. Do you historian-types have any US Presidential biographies to recommend that I don't mention in the list? I'm open to changing my recommendations...

How much processing time does it take to brute force crack an encrypted password (say, md5) without the SSL key? Earlier I said "centuries," but I thought I was dramatically understating.

If they never get the SSL keys, are the (encrypted) passwords of any use to them? I would think not. If that's true, then their two-pronged attack is set up such that only one prong really matters.

Zip: the best r-squared I could find was a negative logarithmic curve. It got 0.35 or so. Carefully matching years and studying the data well enough to identify and eliminate data points which have unusual reasons for being what they are might increase that somewhat. It's also possible that actual c...

Republicans tend to look to best-case outcomes rather than average outcomes when judging the quality of a health care system. The USA has, if you can afford it, some of the top outcomes in the world. It's the "if you can afford it" qualifier that Democrats don't like. Edit : in case it was...

Ok, here's a brief and inaccurate description of how encryption works, just for demonstration purposes: Okay, I get how having the SSL key is a big deal. I expressed that understanding when I said, "DrCaleb's article about SSL master keys is much more frightening." But I was under the imp...

Technically, you're citing the popular perception of corruption, not some objective measure of corruption. That might matter, or it might not. I'd be interested to see nations plotted on a graph where X is a corruption score and Y is a income inequality score. I might spend a little time doing that,...

If next year's implementation of Health Care Reform is executed in a disastrous fashion, which is very likely, the President could easily fall below 30%. I will never understand why the Administration agreed to fully implement the law during an election year. Could that have been part of the negoti...

What good would it do them to have the passwords? I'm making a website right now. My password on that website is the same as for this one. It is stored (encrypted) as 98ff54b2fca624e0be776441333fb4a7 . If the NSA or whoever demanded passwords from my website, that's all I would have available to giv...
