Giving dapulse a try

I Want My Name I Want My Name: As a remote tech employee, my stomach actually ties itself into knots and turns a flip when I hear we’re introducing a new tool I have to check on a daily basis. Not that I don’t believe in productivity tools, but at some point, “productivity” becomes a job in itself.
For the most part, I still feel that way. But on October 2nd, Emma, our new Chief Productivity Officer (we don’t have official titles, so I’m giving us all C-level positions), sent me this message:
So before we catch up - I’m just moving all of our project planning into an online tool called dapulse. Check out this video and see what you think.

I had three thoughts after watching the video:
As an American, the accent really sucked me in.

The “main character” of the video has a very fancy haircut

Nothing in the video was “new” necessarily, but the message was very clear, and it got me excited in a weird way. Things just moved around so elegantly, and the layout felt fresh.

So I started playing around with the tool itself. I created a project folder, assigned people to tasks, set status options, timelines, due dates — I basically custom built a project management page to my exact preferences in ten minutes. That’s how good tools should work!
Then I created a “Content Calendar” folder that shows me what people are working on, has a place for people to drop draft links when they’re ready, shows me the status of their posts, and even has a comment system built in so you can have a running conversation throughout. And it has a gif button that lets me communicate in Nic Cage gifs, which is my preferred method of communication.
The built-in inbox system works, the automated emails seem to be getting to everyone when they’re supposed to — everything in dapulse just seems to work, and everyone (so far) has enjoyed using it enough to keep it going.
All I can say is that if you’re part of a team without a set project management tool (or if you’re using one you don’t really like), you should definitely give dapulse a try. We’re only a couple weeks in, so I can’t profess my undying love, but I think we’ve finally landed on something sticky. And not gum-on-your-shoe sticky, but the delicious stickiness of a fresh sticky bun. I could really go for one of those right now…

Two More Crypto Holes

CircleID CircleID: If you work in computer security, your Twitter feed and/or Inbox has just exploded with stories about not just one but two new holes in cryptographic protcols. One affects WiFi; the other affects RSA key pair generation by certain chips. How serious are these? I'm not going to go through the technical details. For KRACK, Matthew Green did an excellent blog post; for the other, full details are not yet available. There are also good articles on each of them. What's more interesting are the implications.

As I've said before about crypto, don't panic. Encryption flaws are sexy and get academics very excited, but they're rarely particularly serious for most people. That's very true here. In fact, at a guess, the most widespread problem, with WiFi, will have fewer serious consequences than the RSA problem.

The reason that crypto issues are not in general very serious is that someone who wishes to exploit them needs both the flaw and access — and access is rarely easy. For this new WiFi attack, remember that the range of WiFi is about 100 meters; this is not something that the attackers can do over the Internet. (Yes, with a good, directional antenna you can manage about a kilometer. That's still not much, and since the attack depends on sending a packet to the target machine you need very precise aim on someone's phone or computer.)

There's a really important public policy angle to this, though. We're hearing lots of calls for "excpetional access", a mechanism for lawful government access to encrypted content. I and my colleagues have long warned that this is dangerous because cryptographic protocols are very subtle. In retrospect, this new flaw is blindingly obvious — very bad things happen if you replay message 3 of a 4 message sequence — but it took 13 years for it to be noticed, in a protocol that is used by literally billions of devices. (Btw — by "blindingly obvious" I'm not insulting the discoverer, Mathy Vanhoef. He did wonderful work finding it when no one else had, by asking himself, "I wonder what happens if....".) Oh yes — the protocol was mathematically proven correct — but the proof didn't cover what the attack actually does.

Cryptographic protocols are hard.

The other flaw appears to be more academically interesting and — for some of those affected — far more serious. Briefly, in the RSA encryption algorithm, one has to generate a "public key"; this key is (in part) the product of two large, random primes. We normally write this as

n = pq

Normally, n is public; however, p and q must be kept secret.

The problem seems to be in the way p and q were generated. Normally, you generate large, random numbers and test them for primality. It appears that the code library used with a particular chip had something wrong with the process for generating primes, resulting in an n that is easy to factor into its constituent p and q. Interestingly, it's possible to detect these weak values of n very cheaply and easily, without trying to factor them.

So — who is affected by this bug? First, remember the access issue. An attacker needs access to your encrypted traffic or encrypted device. That's not easy. Furthermore, if you used 2048-bit keys — and that's been standard for a fair number of years — the attack isn't cheap. On a 1000-core Amazon cloud, it would take 17 days and cost more than US$40,000. Translation: it isn't an attack that can be done casually or against bulk traffic. It's a targeted attack that can be launched only by a well-resourced adversary, and only against a high-value target.

But there is one serious cause for concern. If you have email encrypted with one of these flawed keys, or if you have an electronic document signed with one, someone can attack it in the future — and that $40K cost and 17-day time will only drop.

Enhancing Transparency in Contractual Compliance Reporting

ICANN Blog ICANN Blog: In Jamie Hedlund’s blog, Six weeks in Contractual Compliance and Consumer Safeguards, he briefed the community on three department initiatives (facilitate community-wide consumer safeguard discussion; boost DNS abuse mitigation efforts; and enhance transparency around contractual compliance). In this blog, I want to provide you an update on the increased transparency initiative around compliance reporting.
Over the past several months we enhanced the ICANN Contractual Compliance Performance Reports in a variety of ways, including:
Enhanced Monthly Reporting - we added information on the subject matter of complaints in the compliance monthly dashboard based on recommendations from the Competition, Consumer Choice, and Consumer Trust Review Team draft report and the Governmental Advisory Committee’s Copenhagen Communique. A few examples include:
Report the WHOIS Inaccuracy complaint by three categories – syntax, operability, and identity.
Report on the subject of registrar related Domain Name System (DNS) abuse complaints such as spam, pharming, phishing, malware, and botnets in addition to counterfeiting, pharmaceutical, fraudulent and deceptive practices, trademark or copyright infringement, and registrar abuse contact.

New Quarterly Reports - our quarterly reports are intended to replace the metrics provided at the Annual General Meeting and the Community Forum during the Compliance Program Update session. This will bring a regular cadence to reporting and eliminate the nearly six-month gap due to the Policy Forum at which no reporting is provided.
New Annual Reports – our new annual reports are intended to provide a calendar year view into the compliance landscape. A few examples include:
Report the registrar and registry complaint types by legacy gTLDs and new gTLDs.
Report the enforcement reasons for registrars and registries.

Increased transparency around complaints in anticipation of future policy requests to measure the effectiveness of the new Transfer Policy. We added additional metrics on the subject matter of ICANN received complaints, which will be relevant for policy review and evaluation.
Additional work is underway to provide a greater detail of reporting on complaints related to safeguards and Public Interest Commitments. All current and past Contractual Compliance Performance Reports are available on ICANN.org
Thank you for your recommendations and requests to enhance transparency in contractual compliance. We welcome your feedback as we continue to improve our reporting. if you have any questions, please contact ICANN Contractual Compliance at compliance@icann.org.
