".. le conseil d'administration de Gemplus international nomme à sa tête Alex J. Mandl (en), administrateur de In-Q-Tel, le fonds de capital-risque créé par la CIA, confirmant la volonté de l'agence américaine de contrôler la cryptologie (brevets, transfert de technologie) mise en œuvre dans les cartes à puces7. En 2009, l’État français rachète 8 % de Gemalto via le Fonds stratégique d'investissement, devenant l'actionnaire principal du groupe. Mais il est alors trop tard pour empêcher les Américains d'obtenir les technologies de cryptologie de la carte à puce, comme en témoigne le fait que TPG a revendu ses actions l'année suivante10."

2004: Gates declares death of passwords [26 Feb 2015|12:51pm]

"The move towards smart cards is the way forward," said Gates in his keynote at IT Forum, in Copenhagen this morning. "The idea is to have a smart card that connects up in the best way - a .Net based smart card."

Microsoft partner Axalto "has done a super job on this", said Gates. "We will be using their smartcards internally - each employee will use those to get in and out of the buildings as we used to connect to our machines. We're requring them. We will completely replace passwords.""

Klasiski izsmalcināta rekreācija* [23 Feb 2015|11:10pm]

x_f

Apņēmīgi noslēdzot šīs ziemas sezonu, pagājušajās brīvdienās izslēpojos tā, ka maz nelikās un rociņas trīcēja. Par spīti ziemas iespaidam Rīgā, sniega joprojām nemaz nav maz Siguldas apkārtnē. Tas tomēr vairs nav diez ko tīrs, uz tā ir gan skujas, gan mizu gabali un zariņi, taču sniegs ir sniegs. Sestdien nejēgā nobridos, bet svētdien pa savām iespiestajām sliedēm bija daudz vieglāk, aizšļūcu tik tālu kā gandrīz vēl nekad, kāds kilometrs pietrūka līdz Egļupei, kad sāka beigties sniegs un vēlēšanās, un griezos atpakaļ.

Pa trasi 15 km trīs stundās būtu diezgan necils sniegums, taču gatava trase ir tīra sintētika, man toties ir visādi šķēršļi, kalniņi un ainavas. Plus vēl tie visi citi šļūcēji. Pa mežu, mežmalu vai lauku, savukārt, var brist savā gaitā un savā izvēlētajā virzienā, klausīties skaņas, dungot, cirkulēt domas, apsvērt un kaldināt idejas. Un tad pagriezties atpakaļ. Žēl, ka ar pūķi šoziem nesanāca izbraukt – vienīgajā dienā, kad to būtu varējis (tam vajag vēju, sērsnu un brīvdienu), sabrauca viesi, un tai pašā dienā mani arī aicināja slēpot pa purvu, gandrīz viss gandrīz vienīgajā ziemas dienā.

Kamēr ziemas nav, man to nemaz, nemaz negribas, lai tikai viss paliek sauss un normāls, toties, kad tā atnāk, tad negribas, lai pavasaris pienāk, kad viss nokustu, kļūtu dubļains, brūns, pliks un normāls. Ziemā viss ir vienāds, var mierīgi slēpot pa lauku pāri visām zemes gabalu robežām, un tas ir pašsaprotami. Kad sniegs sāk nokust (tagad), tad var tikai sēdēt mājās, jo takas ir slapjas un grimstošas, dārzā vēl ir sniegs, nekur nav ko darīt! Man ir aizspriedumi pret pārmaiņām – kur ir solītā stabilitāte?

Aye

" Personally, my biggest takeaway is that anything centralized is compromised, period.

Any centralized system is such a juicy target that the NSA will compromise it. The only way to avoid dragnet issues is to decentralize and force the NSA to expend resources at the edges.

This doesn't means that you can make an individual target secure. The NSA can always outspend you. But you can prevent the NSA from easily just vacuuming up everybody cheaply. "

Muslims who call the Islamic State un-Islamic are typically, as the Princeton scholar Bernard Haykel, the leading expert on the group’s theology, told me, “embarrassed and politically correct, with a cotton-candy view of their own religion” that neglects “what their religion has historically and legally required.”

He regards the claim that the Islamic State has distorted the texts of Islam as preposterous, sustainable only through willful ignorance. “People want to absolve Islam,” he said. “It’s this ‘Islam is a religion of peace’ mantra. As if there is such a thing as ‘Islam’! It’s what Muslims do, and how they interpret their texts.”

In Haykel’s estimation, the fighters of the Islamic State are authentic throwbacks to early Islam and are faithfully reproducing its norms of war. This behavior includes a number of practices that modern Muslims tend to prefer not to acknowledge as integral to their sacred texts. “Slavery, crucifixion, and beheadings are not something that freakish [jihadists] are cherry-picking from the medieval tradition,” Haykel said. Islamic State fighters “are smack in the middle of the medieval tradition and are bringing it wholesale into the present day.”

The Koran specifies crucifixion as one of the only punishments permitted for enemies of Islam. The tax on Christians finds clear endorsement in the Surah Al-Tawba, the Koran’s ninth chapter, which instructs Muslims to fight Christians and Jews “until they pay the jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” The Prophet, whom all Muslims consider exemplary, imposed these rules and owned slaves.

Leaders of the Islamic State have taken emulation of Muhammad as strict duty, and have revived traditions that have been dormant for hundreds of years. “What’s striking about them is not just the literalism, but also the seriousness with which they read these texts,” Haykel said. “There is an assiduous, obsessive seriousness that Muslims don’t normally have.”

The caliphate has continued to embrace slavery and crucifixion without apology. “We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women,” Adnani, the spokesman, promised in one of his periodic valentines to the West. “If we do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.”
