I'm an old open-source independent hacker,

concerned about concepts of ethical hacking, teaching and sharing.

I like to play with shell, perl, lisp (sometime), sed and lot of other languages/environments.

Co-system administrator in several configurations, after various SMEs, I like to sometimes take time to focus on methods that I can improve or re-create (for example to change the level of abstraction).

In this, surfing on differents StackExchange's sites is a good way to boost my inspiration!

What if a virus turn the buzzer into mic (technically a buzzer is a near a mic)?

comment Do keyservers keep logs of who adds whom to their keyrings?
Normaly no, I could speak about what I know: GnuPG (GNU open-source pgp solution) use ~/.gnupg/options for configuration file and ~/.gnupg as private dir, so there is no username in configuration nor in command line (~ is an alias for $HOME, but resolved by shell, from /etc/passwd file).

No. Your ssl library will only use one specific directory to store certificats. No other kind of browsing/sharing.

In the other way, with virtualization like openVz you may have many differents hosts after only one mac address.

comment Computing entropy for a passphrase ( minimal word length … )
In fine, I've followed your recommendation to set default random generator to /dev/urandom, but I've added an option to let user ability to choose another way genpassphrase.pl -d wl_15bits.lst -r <(echo -ne '\001\002\003\004\005\006\007\010\011\012').
