WhatsApp to push back against Indian crackdown on encryption
"WhatsApp is gearing up to fight the Indian government’s proposals to force tech companies to hand over the personal data and encrypted messages of hundreds of millions of Indians.

The Facebook-owned messaging app has more than 210m users in India, making the country its largest market by far. But over the past year, the company has been under growing pressure from New Delhi to find ways to clamp down on fake news and incendiary rumours circulating through its systems, especially after a series of lynch mobbings by crowds of angry villagers incited by inflammatory WhatsApp messages.

India’s telecoms regulator and IT ministry have both proposed laws that would allow authorities to trace the origins of encrypted messages. The legislation would also compel tech companies including Facebook, Twitter and Apple — whose iMessage system is also end-to-end encrypted — to proactively monitor and remove objectionable content posted on their platforms. The government has opened a consultation, which will close at the end of the month." - Madhumita Murgia, Financial Times

Towards A Safer Footgun | codahale.com
Modern symmetric encryption is built around Authenticated Encryption with Associated Data (AEAD) constructions: combinations of ciphers and message authentication codes which provide strong guarantees of both confidentiality and integrity. These constructions avoid the “doom principle” which made so many older cryptosystems vulnerable to online attacks, but many of the standard AEAD constructions have problems of their own.
What’s an AEAD?

An AEAD is essentially a pair of functions:...

Have I been pwnd? Password and intrusion targets - Troy Hunt
"[Troy Hunt] created HIBP as a free resource for anyone to quickly assess if they may have been put at risk due to an online account of theirs having been compromised or "pwned" in a data breach. I wanted to keep it dead simple to use and entirely free so that it could be of maximum benefit to the community.

"Short of the odd donation, all costs for building, running and keeping the service currently come directly out of [his] own pocket. Fortunately, today's modern cloud services like Microsoft Azure make it possible to do this without breaking the bank!"

Pwned Passwords

Pwned Passwords are 551,509,767 real world passwords previously exposed in data breaches. This exposure makes them unsuitable for ongoing use as they're at much greater risk of being used to take over other accounts. They're searchable online below as well as being downloadable for use in other online system.
