Google 測試 CECPQ1 的一些資料...

七月的時候提到「Google Chrome 引入 CECPQ1,開始測試 Post-Quantum Cryptography」,剛剛看到 Adam Langley 寫了一些數據出來:「CECPQ1 results」。 目前看起來對於網路速度不快的使用者會影響比較大,最慢的 5% 使用者大約慢了 20ms,最慢的 1% 使用者會慢 150ms: Although the median connection latency only increased by a millisecond, the latency for the slowest 5% increased by 20ms and, for the slowest … Continue reading

保護 macOS 的方法

在「drduh/macOS-Security-and-Privacy-Guide」這邊列出了許多保護方式,如果考慮到 APT 的話應該是個不錯的指南... 不過考慮到相當硬,服用前請小心,有些步驟甚至需要拆機: 雖然整篇文章還頗硬的,但裡面講軟體的部份還是很不錯的指南,可以保護自己...

Mozilla 也在考慮對 Certificate Transparency 的掌握度

由於 Firefox 要支援 Certificate Transparency 的緣故,在「Mozilla CT Policy」這邊 Mozilla 在討論要建立自己的 CT policy 以及自己的架構: CT is coming to Firefox. As part of that, Mozilla needs to have a set of CT policies surrounding how that will work. Like our root inclusion … Continue reading

英國通過法案要求 ISP 記錄使用者觀看過的網站

英國前幾天通過了最激烈的隱私侵犯法案,要求 ISP 必須記錄使用者觀看過的網站:「Britain has passed the 'most extreme surveillance law ever passed in a democracy'」: The law forces UK internet providers to store browsing histories -- including domains visited -- for one year, in case of police investigations. 不愧是 George … Continue reading

Google Chrome 也宣佈不信任 WoSign + StartCom 的計畫

Google Chrome 也公開了對 WoSign + StartCom 的計畫:「Distrusting WoSign and StartCom Certificates」。 由於大家遇到的技術問題都一樣 (之前發出的量太大,無法窮舉表列出來),所以處理的方法也類似於 Mozilla 的作法,只信任 2016/10/21 前發出的 certificate: Beginning with Chrome 56, certificates issued by WoSign and StartCom after October 21, 2016 00:00:00 UTC will not be trusted. Google Chrome … Continue reading

Mozilla 對 WoSign + StartCom 的正式處分

Mozilla 對 WoSign + StartCom 的不信任處分出爐了:「Distrusting New WoSign and StartCom Certificates」,最後處分的內容跟之前的討論差不多 (參考先前寫的「Mozilla 對於 WoSign + StartCom 根憑證的新發展:拔除」)。 Mozilla 台灣有放出中文版的說明 (差不多就是英文翻譯的版本):「取消對 WoSign 與 StartCom 新簽發憑證的信任」。 這次比較麻煩的地方在於要信任已經發出的 certificate,而且量太大無法窮舉。所以必須改增加程式碼處理,而這個方法無法對使用 Mozilla CA Certificate Store 的人生效 (因為這包套件只是一堆 pem 檔案,沒辦法放特殊的邏輯進去...) 另外現在 Firefox 是 49 版,要到 51 … Continue reading
