Youtube is ditching Flash, and its not even a Pyhrric victory.

Video embedding is how evil corporations are successfully censoring the Internet. Steal all the upload bandwidth, then you have to get all your movies from only them, and they're happy to dress up your website to give the illusion that you're the one providing it, but then it gets banned and the entire Internet gets a "copyright claim from Sony BMG" no matter how many disagree with this.

holomorphic what?

imagine this.
I encrypt some data and send it to you. You perform operations on the encrypted data while its still encrypted. You don't know what the data is, you don't know what the result of the operations are. Everything is encrypted the entire time.

You send the encrypted data back to me, and I decrypt it to find my properly massaged data.

That's holomorphic computing.

Actually, If I remember correctly. I can send the operations over encrypted as well. Your computer will get encrypted adta and operations, and perform the operations on the data, without even know what the data nor the operations are.

Why does YouTube meltdown every time an update happens? I swear my subscriptions aren't updating with the more recent vids.

Ok/ I fucked up, its homomorphic computing, and the encrypted instruction thing isn't true. I did not remember correctly.

Here's the wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homomorphic_encryption

Apparently the idea has been around for awhile, but it was only actually proven possible a few years ago. Its still slow as balls and not practical, but one day, we will have true privacy. Banks will be able to compute things like taxes and interest without even knowing what we spent our money on.

>In abstract algebra, a homomorphism is a structure-preserving map
Oh. Yeah, no wonder. So you wanna convert message m into encrypted message M, and function f into altered function F, so that F(M) = encrypted version of f(m). Then you can have somebody else handle actually performing F on M, and just do the encryption/decryption at your end. That's hawt.

Figuring out how to convert arbitrary functions, though... that sounds hard as fuck.

Why are you afraid, my little pony? This will enhance privacy, and let you live freer.

Yup, just wait till e have quantum homomorphic computing. Quantum ciphertext being acted upon by quantum operations.

Speaking of quantum encryption. The latest 2600 had a good article on defeating quantum cracking of traditional crypto. Of course the one time pad is still theoretically perfect, but it seems if you encrypt with RSA then encrypt the RSA ciphertext with AES, there are too many possible solutions to make quantum techniques effective.

ok I fucked up again. Its not AES on top of RSA. Its multiple time pad on top of AES.

Privacy is already "perfect" as long as asymmetric cryptography can't be cracked. This isn't protecting the privacy of what you're doing. It's preventing other people from knowing what they're doing. All encrypted computations would do is enhance ignorance, and waste computations. Transmitting information solely for the purposes of preventing transmitting information.

I've already stated I was wrong about that. If someone is sorting a list, they'll know they're sorting a list, they just don't know what's in the list. If they add two values they know they're adding two values, they just won't know what values they're adding, and possibly not the sum, depending on implementation.

For example, you could bank with an encrypted account, and even though the bank has no idea how you're spending your money, they can still perform necessary calculations on it. Its protecting your actions, while still allowing you to bank.

>Transmitting information solely for the purposes of preventing transmitting information.

Yeah, there's a word for that. Its "cryptography."

At least with cryptography you're transmitting information to someone. This homomorphic computing isn't transmitting information to anyone at all, just having them do your work while they stay ignorant of what you're doing. It's like the Chinese sweatshop of cryptography.

And I just now thought about all those remote backups that're encrypted, so, never mind you're right I'm just being stupid. There's already ways we share data around without anyone in mind to decrypt it but ourselves.

WON'T SOMEBODY THINK OF THE COMPUTERS?!?!?!

For just pennies a day, you can provide a young computer with three bowls of CPU cycles a day and plenty of fresh clean RAM to drink. How many times do you have to see this commercial, and watch the suffering before you pick up the phone and make a commitment to sponsor a computer?

When you call the number at the bottom of your screen, our operators will match you with a computer in need, and send you your introductory packet. You'll get an email from your computer along with a .png of it and an information sheet with your computer's specifications.

If we all do a little, we can make a huge difference in the lives of the world's computers.
