I'm a Computer Science student at the University of Havana, Cuba.

My fields of interest are:

  • Algorithms
  • Compiling and Formal Languages
  • Computer Graphics and Computer Vision
  • Artificial Intelligence

My favorite programming languages are C# and Python, in no specific order.

I think that good ideas make good software, independent of platform, languages, tools and IDEs. These do help, however. I know its hard to be completely unbiased, but I try to judge software and programmers by this rule.

comment Validating correctness amongst untrusted answers
Thanks, I like this approach. It is very close to what I have thought, but I like the idea of validating only a fraction of the packets. Can you provide some links?

comment Easy protocol for email authentication
Thanks too for the useful comments. I really have not so important stuff to protect, and most of all, very few users which I know personally, so for now I will not deal with rekeying (if I have to, I can just do it manually). The point about the simplicity of using the signing mechanisms in mail clients is very solid, I will consider it more deeply. Anyway I was planning no to make users write the emails in the first place, but instead give them a custom application that generates emails on the background. In any case you make very good points. +1.

comment Easy protocol for email authentication
Thanks a lot. Yes I forgot to mention the fact that hashes are stored to prevent replay attacks (although I didn't know that was the name). I've read through the articles and I think I'll give a try to HMAC. Despite the practical issues regarding software reuse and so, which I totally agree, I also have a kind of "academic" interest in implementing the thing by myself and seen how it works. What hash would you suggest for HMAC?
