Secure cloud storage is mostly a lie until cryptographic splitting becomes the default standard.…

#netsec #security #privacy #future #soon #cloud #evolve #adapt
The major cloud storage platforms will push back against this necessary step forward. Cryptographic Splitting inherently reduces each cloud provider's revenue stream by pitting them with-and-against their competitors. And the end user comes out on top.
The basics of it:
-DataX is encrypted on the user end.
-Every other byte splits off (goes into either FileA or FileB. Like: A-B-A-B-A-B-A-...).
-Both resulting files are then, again, encrypted.
-FileA is stored within Amazon's Cloud.
-FileB is stored within Microsoft's Cloud.
As Microsoft and Amazon are bitter competitors, neither one is likely to partner up with the other, provide the encrypted "half" they are holding for a file (if they can even identify which piece goes to which file) to the competition.
Why would they? The competitor then has the advantage. What if the missing half is not provided to you after you send the half you had? Then the competitor has dirt on you (as you sent them data you were really not suppose to send). There's no easy win scenario for a bad actor.
And that is assuming the underlying encryption is even breakable to begin with.

So- Start integrating the idea of Cryptographic Splitting into things you develop if you give a damn about security, integrity, privacy, or being competitive in the future.

Thought experiment-

If, years ago, one of those RU oligarchs (with a $billion yacht) had faked defection and been able to get US citizenship, can you think of any more-effective way to engage in war against America than what Elon Musk is doing right now?
It would look identical.
-Stoking racial animus in the working class. (Elon segregated Tesla factory workers based on skin color and allowed racism to flourish among staff).

Pro-Russia spy Garaffa mourns the loss of well-known and vociferous communist.
Here is Garaffa attempting a politically-motivated influence narrative in continuing his service to Russia.
Take note. There are a grand total of 2 posts in all of Twitter which contain that hashtag (which promotes Kremlin propaganda).
One of the two tweets is Garaffa's (shown above).
The only other one appeared back in March. No others exist.

Hypersensitivity and overreaction are bad.
I casually called my daughter's pediatrician today in relation to an upcoming 2-year-checkup appointment and explained that last Thursday Ruth *might* have briefly been in physical proximity to a kid who, several days later, (yesterday) tested positive for covid.
Ruth has been nowhere near the other child since Thursday. Ruth has no symptoms whatsoever today and I have no idea whether or not there was an actual "exposure" to covid. I have no way if knowing. There is only a very slight hypothetical possibility.

Waaaaaaaaay more than 5% of accounts on Twitter are fake.
If that's a dealbreaker for Elon, then the Twitter deal is going to fall through.
However, I suspect Elon may simply be placing doubt of that number on record and in the public eye for when he eventually amplifies that number to a much higher % than whatever it currently is.

Elon wants to manipulate. With control of Twitter, he will do harm to the public.
Elon desires to do with Twitter the same thing Zuckerberg has done with Facebook-- turn it into an indoctrination weapon.

This is blowing my mind:

"Normal" people say weird and irrelevant things in order to cause actions they want to happen.

"Neuro-diverse" people say true things without hidden ulterior motives because we understand that a proliferation of truth tends to result in good outcomes.
I had not realized this simple explanation until @INTJTexan tweeted out a lighthearted meme pointing it out recently.

It explains so much of the frustration I run into while trying to explain things to traditional figures of authority.
Those two types of people are constantly talking "past" each other and, basically, on different wavelengths of reasoning.

Recognizing which of those categories someone tends to fit into is an important step toward identifying how to effectively communicate with them.
