I just realised my intro went when my instance crashed all those months ago.
My day job is a senior #networkengineer working on some very large and strange computer networks.
Cisco *and* the IETF draft
#SNMP has various methods for authentication which is a way of proving you should have access to the query.
The story of AES authentication is a little sad. For AES-128, it's simple as RFC3826 added it and DES.
However, AES-192 and 256 were not added by the RFC and there are two standards; Cisco is IETF draft Blumenthal. The difference is only in the OIDs they use but if your sender uses one and receiver the other, it won't work.
⚠️ IMPORTANT: Users of Element Desktop/Web/Android, FluffyChat & Nheko should upgrade immediately to address a critical encryption vulnerability.
We are not aware of this being exploited in the wild yet, but as the bug is now disclosed please upgrade now. https://matrix.org/blog/2021/09/13/vulnerability-disclosure-key-sharing
Vivaldi browser's reasoning for not releasing it as FOSS.
This is either intentional bullshit, or just a collection of common FUD and misconceptions about being open.
You ABSOLUTELY CAN be free and open-source, while maintaining strict UI guidelines and brand integrity.
"I sent you an OMEMO encrypted message but your client doesn’t seem to support that."
We just published a new #Prosody module, mod_debug_omemo. It adds a unique link to the end of these messages. When opened, it will reveal OMEMO debug info that can help identify why the message couldn't be decrypted.
Thanks to @zash for some last-minute testing and fixes 🙂

Just now on HN:
"FB censored me for mentioning open source social network #Mastodon "
"Greetings-" the tall, cowled figure said gravely.
"Wait, wait, let me guess. Are you Death?"
"Good, good. Fate, then?"
"Damn. Hm. Are you Adventure?"
"No. I am-"
"Wait, are you Love?"
"I am Contentment. I think I'm looking for someone else."
