🔒 Understanding Zero Knowledge Proofs: A thread

🤔 Have you ever wondered how you can prove you know something without revealing any information about it? This is where zero-knowledge proofs come into play!

Continue reading👇👇👇 Zero knowledge proofs
1️⃣ Zero-knowledge proofs are a type of #cryptographic protocol that allows you to prove knowledge of something without actually revealing the info itself.

This is done by using complex mathematical #algorithms to check the validity of a claim without learning about its info.
2️⃣ One common use case for zero-knowledge proofs is in password authentication.

Instead of sending your actual #password to a server, which could be intercepted by an attacker, a zero-knowledge proof can be used to prove that you know your password without revealing what it is.

🎙️Web3 Security Q&A with our CEO Rick Deacon - @rickdeaconx

⚠️Part I: Common #Web3 Threats

(Part II: How Interlock solves this by using #AI - will be published tomorrow!)

Q: What are the top security problems for crypto and Web3 users right now?

A: "The most prevalent security problems are all focused on social engineering:

1⃣Phishing attacks where attackers try to steal personal information by disguising a malicious website as a legitimate one.
2⃣Malware infections which can steal personal information, funds or take control of a device.

3⃣Scams that take advantage of the hype around #cryptocurrency and Web3 technologies to trick users into sending money or personal information.

I've been toying with a method for people to keep credentials memorable while keeping them completely unique on each & every site 👍

This method uses SHA256 encoding to generate username & password based on memorable secret & format, but input username & password is gibberish 😎
Just come up with a phrase you can easily remember like "i<3vaginas" then use URL itself as prefix to username & password.

User: gmail.com_barnacules
Pass: gmail.com_password

Then use encoded text as actual username & password for each site 👍
user: gmail.com_someguy
pass: gmail.com_someguy_password
secret: i<3vaginas

This is your forewarning. #TikTok has reportedly suffered a #data #breach, and if true there may be fallout from it in the coming days. We recommend you change your TikTok #password and enable Two-Factor Authentication, if you have not done so already.
The types of information accessible haven’t been confirmed.

A security team *has* claimed responsibility, but are currently working privately so we’ll hold off on the disclosure without a go-ahead.

Today I learned about the #Plex (@plex) breach via my work internal off-topic chat and was linked to a @TheVerge article that said an email was sent out. Turns out my spam filter got it 😞 🧵
One thing of note in the article is the advice that is reported and the device of the advice is terrible. They do not recommend you change your password because it's encrypted and then stated it is hashed, these are two different things.
Hashes generally are not reversible, however, this is a bit untrue since you can re-run the hashing technique via brute force and dictionary attacks. You can make these very hard by salting the data (this was the problem with #AshleyMadison they didn't salt their hashes.

the document is stored in your #Password protected casino folder where no one else can be granted access to the information that would allow them to use your casino accounts. As an added precaution, you can also password protect the document itself.… Keeping all of your casino related information and casino software downloads in one location will help ensure that your online casino gaming experiences will remain a positive experience through safety and security. While going to such lengths to keep your casino information safe, may seem extreme, it’s better than dealing with any legal or financial implications should someone else gain access to your account and gamble using your casino login information.

🔴⏬ Here I start a thread about some Oracle Database concepts. We will see how far it goes - all questions/comments welcome.
🔴⏬ A database (or DBMS - database management system) stores (for short and long term) and manipulates (from many concurrent users/devices) your #data.
🔴⏬ #data is logically structured (tablespaces, schemas, tables, columns, datatypes, constraints,…). The structure is described by #metadata.
