‘Master,’ ‘Slave’ and the Fight Over Offensive Terms in Computing

Anyone who joined a video call during the pandemic probably has a global volunteer organization called the Internet Engineering Task Force to thank for making the technology work. The group, which helped create the technical foundations of the internet, designed the language that allows most video to run smoothly online. It made it possible for someone with a Gmail account to communicate with a friend who uses Yahoo, and for shoppers to safely enter their credit card information on e-commerce sites. Now the organization is tackling an even thornier issue: getting rid of computer engineering terms that evoke racist history, like “master” and “slave” and “whitelist” and “blacklist.” But what started as an earnest proposal has stalled as members of the task force have debated the history of slavery and the prevalence of racism in tech.

Engineers still worried about masters and slaves

Nearly a year after the Internet Engineering Task Force took up a plan to replace words that could be considered racist, the debate is still raging and no one can agree.

More than words: Debate on expunging racist terms in computing is welcome. It should become more expansive

In July 2020, the Internet Engineering Task Force, a voluntary, international internet standards body, proposed getting rid of racist engineering terms such as “master”, “slave”, “blacklist” and “whitelist”.

Encryption unlocks the benefits of a thriving, trustworthy Internet

The Internet is a critical, global resource that brings incredible benefits, provided it is both accessible and trustworthy. In 2020, the Internet Society identified five critical properties that ‘make the Internet the Internet’. They represent the foundation of the Internet, which we call the Internet Way of Networking (IWN). Without them, the Internet’s benefits of global innovation and opportunity are in jeopardy. The path from critical properties to global benefits involves risk, however, and encryption is a vital tool for protecting ourselves along the way.

The state of FHE: Don't believe the hype—but it is hopeful

... I quickly learned that there’s an effort underway to write a standard that specifies forms of FHE. This is the Homomorphic Encryption Standardization project. This isn’t run through an established standards organization such as the IETF, the IEEE, OASIS, etc. Instead, it’s run by a group of vendors that have an interest in getting their technology accepted. The group is having meetings, running workshops, and creating a draft standard. It’s not clear how useful the standard that they’ll eventually produce is going to be.

When Certificate Management Becomes Daunting, Automate It

... Yes, there are various third-party tools and IETF protocols that can help modernize this onerous task, but many organizations have holes in the process, making efficient certificate management elusive.

What is the ACME protocol and how does it work? | Keyfactor

The Cost of Cloud LDAP

... “So, LDAP came out of my desire to do something a little lighter weight to accommodate the Macs and PCs that were on everybody’s desktop. Some colleagues and I created a similar protocol called DIXIE, which people liked. Soon after that, I was approached by some people in the IETF community to create a standardized version of DIXIE, and, with the help of a couple of colleagues, that’s how LDAP was born.”

Forescout and JSOF Disclose New DNS Vulnerabilities, Impacting Millions of Enterprise and Consumer Devices

... We realized that many vulnerabilities exist because RFC documents are either unclear, ambiguous or too complex.

Measuring DNS over TLS from the edge

DNS over TLS (DoT) is an extension to the DNS over UDP/53 (Do53) protocol, which provides additional confidentiality to the DNS messages between the client and server. Since its standardization in RFC 7858 in 2016, DoT has gained increasing support by various DNS services as well as operating systems.

Use of Outdated Encryption Breaches GDPR, Danish Regulator Warns [subscription]

Organizations processing sensitive personal information must ensure that it is encrypted using Transport Layer Security version 1.2 or higher, Denmark’s data regulator said Wednesday. The Danish Data Protection Agency’s statement follows its April 7 ruling criticizing the National Police for using version 1.0 of the protocol on an online gun permit application platform, which processed personal data such as names, addresses, and social security numbers.

The Camel’s Back: Recursive to Authoritative DNS with Encryption

With the mushrooming deployment of encrypted DNS transport protocols like DNS over HTTPS (DoH) and DNS over TLS (DoT), one might be seduced into thinking that in-flight confidentiality of DNS queries is a problem done and dusted. A comprehensive modeling of the security threats, however, reveals otherwise.

How the NAME:WRECK Bugs Impact Consumers, Businesses

Researchers estimate more than 100 million internet-connected devices are vulnerable to a class of flaws dubbed NAME:WRECK. Devices ranging from smartphones, aircraft navigation systems and industrial internet of things (IIoT) endpoints are vulnerable to either a denial-of-service (DoS) or remote code-execution (RCE) attack, according to a joint report by Forescout Research Labs and JSOF Research Labs. Patches are available for some affected vendors.

Today, Forescout Research Labs, partnering with JSOF Research, disclose NAME:WRECK, a set of nine vulnerabilities affecting four popular TCP/IP stacks (FreeBSD, Nucleus NET, IPnet and NetX). These vulnerabilities relate to Domain Name System (DNS) implementations, causing either Denial of Service (DoS) or Remote Code Execution (RCE), allowing attackers to take target devices offline or to take control over them.

DNS-over-HTTPS Is The Wrong Partial Solution

Openness has been one of the defining characteristics of the Internet for as long as it has existed, with much of the traffic today still passed without any form of encryption. Most requests for HTML pages and associated content are in plain text, and the responses are returned in the same way, even though HTTPS has been around since 1994.

NEW TRANSPORT PROTOCOLS

**********************

Introducing TCPLS: A game of transport protocols

Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is the Internet’s dominant transport protocol, but TCP does have some flaws. There are other protocols that could help resolve these flaws, but deploying them is difficult, largely due to Internet ossification — a progressive but substantial reduction of the Internet’s flexibility to support new protocols above IP which has made new designs unreliable on the global network.

Roku 2012 vymyslel Dr. Jim Roskind v Googlu nový protokol QUIC (Quick UDP Internet Connections). O rok později jej představil světu, chopila se jej i IETF a postupně si získal pozornost jako protokol, na kterém staví budoucí verze HTTP, tedy HTTP/3, jinak též řečeno HTTP over QUIC.

K tomu quic/http3, nepodařilo se mi vysledovat čím to je, ale pokud mám vysoký traffic po UDP, přestane mi doma chodit DNS (O2 VDSL). Takže po prvotním nadšení jsem k praktičnosti http3 mírně skeptický..
