Designing transparent and secure election systems with computers Comrade 07/09/2020 (Thu) 23:00:09 No. 3173 [Reply] [Last]
Many countries around the world, after some initial experiments, have completely dumped the idea of running their election systems with computer hardware and returned to hand-counted paper ballots. One look at the cartoonish hodgepodge of election machines with a million security holes across the United States all making use of unauditable proprietary software and hardware and manufactured by private companies mired by a history of corruption and scandals. One look at all that would be enough to give any reasonable person pause to reconsider the entire idea of electronic voting. Is it possible to design an electronic voting/counting system that fulfills some basic expectations of security and transparency? I and many other computer security experts would argue that it is not and never will be due to some fundamental aspects of computers. But let's not let that spoil our fun. How would you design electronic voting systems to be secure and transparent? What would the hardware be like? What would the software be like?
We should probably start by dumping x86 and ARM shit and going with an OpenRISC processor. Simplicity and openness in hardware are key to making audits easy and trustworthy.
I feel like it really shouldn't be that hard with some simple end to end encryption and identification tbh. I just think the deep state is afraid to make things too democratic
>>3175 How do you verify an encrypted ballot while preserving the secret ballot?

>>3088 >You make one of the best package managers (pacman) what’s so great about it in your view? and what are the specific “flaws of debian and apt”? I haven’t given much thought to packages managers as they all just seem like clones of each other to me, save exceptional ones like portage which has a source repository (and even that aspect is debatably not relevant to the implementation of the package manager itself)

>>3161 How do you hold packages from installing certain files on apt or simply stopping them from upgrading? in pacman.conf you can have IgnorePkg, NoUpgrade and NoExtract. As for the differences, they do differ a lot: one has 2 commands with long args that do what other can do with just a short one; other takes commands when the other can do it only after making a change in the config file. Upgrading everything while leaving no cached packages behind is pacman -Syu && paccache -rk0 but in debian you have to use apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade && apt autoremove && apt autoclean. And no don't get me started on the difference between dpkg, apt, apt-get, synaptic and aptitude. This syntax shows clearly that the goal was not to have the pm being used from its CLI interface, rather they probably thought it as a library for clicky-click GUI wrappers that get installed alongside the DE. You could try partialy fixing it with shell aliases, i think that could do wonders but i can't figure out how you could fix the broken configuration. It took me like 15 minutes just to find out how to stop it from pulling 2GB of useless dependencies when installing xorg as there's no mention of it on debian wiki, but how about not interrupting the install just to ask me for what to do with the developer provided config file for a random package? Why is this the default behavior instad of simply keeping it in the cache just like the package itself so i can make that choice later? You can't use the command in a script if it does that. Pipeing yes? i don't think so. Adding user repositories? Another pain in the ass. In the end what pissed me the most was how it's supposed to be noob friendly just like the distro itself, but i always get headaches when something goes wrong with it. Anyway, pacman isn't the greatest- i didn't said that. That would be apk-tools but with this capabilty i was talking about which it doesn't have at all. I also can't say i couldn't live with apt only, but it would be inconvenient. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Apt

Could I end up getting arrested if I kept making fake accounts using one of these 10min emails, to enjoy the free trial of ProtonVPN?

>>1178 >>1179 it's not just using a free trial tho, it's using it in a way that allows me to have it for completely free permanently when I'm supposed to pay for it monthly.
I'm sure they will figure it out based on your IP address\usage patterns and just ban you.

Laptop Comrade 07/03/2020 (Fri) 21:31:34 No. 3084 [Reply] [Last]

>>3098 How much you want to spend and what else do you want to do apart from your school work? You're going to be running Windows from the sound of things, do you also want to run linux?
I strongly suspect they are full of shit. If I were you I would march in their office and ask for who wrote this "Laptop Requirements" and schedule a meeting with him to question him why you need an Intel i5, 8GB of RAM and 256GB for your molecular genetics classes. Ask him if you're using virtual machines. If not, the laptop requirements are meaningless and you can settle for much less.
I got by fine with a x41 for ~30 euros, until the charger melted away, so if you find one they're still fine.

Comrades, I bought some apps and have them installed but when I switch to new account those apps won't come with me. I hate this and I want to make copies of these apps so I can install them directly with the apks. How do i do this without google verification shit fucking with me. I don't have a lot of data to re pirate the apps and download from elsewhere. Please help me duplicating apps that I paid for so I can use them on an account which doesn't have them.
Anyone know why my TorrentLeech torrents aren’t seeding? There are more leechers and than seeders and I’m still not sending anything out.
