Looks like Google finally is listing their new Titan keys: bgr.com/2018/08/30/google-tita

The one thing I can't find. Can these operate as smartcards like the yubikey can? Or is this FIDO/U2F only?


My favorite story about that sort of license was that Douglas Crockford's had one, and IBM's programmers wanted to use it—but their lawyers wouldn't let them because of the "not for evil" clause. So, they actually went to Crockford and got him to agree that IBM *is* allowed to use the software for evil, which apparently satisfied the lawyers.

Two morals of the story:
1) Lawyers are an odd bunch
2) A non-free license (even in that way) can stop people from using your software

If you have to reveal your GPG key for an investigation, or to prove something, etc, reveal the session key, NOT the private key.

$ gpg --show-session-key --decrypt example.asc

Decryption w/ session key:

$ gpg --override-session-key xx:xxxxxxxxxxx --decrypt example.asc

Useful for many purposes, e.g. to allow another person to decrypt existing documents without re-encryption.

Hello Fosstodon! Moving my account from @geekgonecrazy to here.

Found myself following more and more people here. Seems like a great group of people. Look forward to interacting with many of you.

Hope to not make many moves between mastodon instances, hopefully the last.🙂
