對 Open Data 的攻擊手段

前陣子看到的「Membership Inference Attacks against Machine Learning Models」,裡面試著做到的攻擊手法: [G]iven a data record and black-box access to a model, determine if the record was in the model's training dataset. 也就是拿到一組 Open Data 的存取權限,然後發展一套方法判斷某筆資料是否在裡面。而驗證攻擊的手法當然就是直接攻擊看效果: We empirically evaluate our inference techniques on classification models … Continue reading

OpenSSL 將轉為 Apache 2.0 License

OpenSSL 最近打算把原本的 license 換成 Apache License, Version 2.0:「Licensing Update」。 主要的原因是希望相容於現有大多數的 open source project: OpenSSL Re-licensing to Apache License v. 2.0 To Encourage Broader Use with Other FOSS Projects and Products 但這非常詭異啊,舊的 license 最大的問題就是與 GPLv2 不相容,而預定要換的 AL 2.0 也還是不相容啊,搞屁啊。

歐盟法院 (The Court of Justice of the European Union) 認為公開無線網路的營運者不需要對使用者的侵權行為負責:「EU Court: Open WiFi Operator Not Liable For Pirate Users」。 不過這是有一些前提的,法院認為應該要符合這幾個要件,營運方才不要負責。基本上完全沒有 filter 限制的無線網路會符合這些條件: The Court further notes that in order for such ‘mere conduit’ services to be exempt from third party … Continue reading

Mark Callaghan 講最近的 MySQL 的行銷活動...

Mark Callaghan 這篇倒是沒提到什麼技術的東西,主要是講最近 MySQL 的兩大 conference,一個是 Oracle 的 Oracle Open World,另外一個是 Percona 的 Percona Live Amsterdam 2016,然後用了 benchmarketing 這個酸酸的詞 XDDD:「Peak benchmarketing season for MySQL」。 裡面有些也很有趣的東西: My joke is that each of these makes a different group happy: performance -> marketing, … Continue reading

Netflix 的 Open Connect 架構

在「研究人员绘制Netflix CDN服务器位置图」這邊看到在討論 Netflix 的 Open Connect 架構,也就是 Netflix 自己的 CDN 架構。引用的論文是「Open Connect Everywhere: A Glimpse at the Internet Ecosystem through the Lens of the Netflix CDN」這篇。 翻了一下論文,看起來還是頗傳統的方法,從一堆伺服器去 query 找出來: Indeed, Netflix server domain names are too specific, i.e., including details … Continue reading

Open Source 版本的 Skype

前幾天講到用 Docker 跑 Skype 的「用 Docker 跑 Skype 講電話」,剛剛就看到「skypeopensource2」這個專案,不過目前功能非常有限: First in world self-made client to Skype Network based on reversing original Skype 5.5 client. For now, only receiving and sending messages are supported. 然後看了一下專案內容,應該是 Windows-only,這樣應該還是暫時會用 Docker 版本的 Skype 吧... 最主要還是拿來打電話 … Continue reading
