comment Https and FTPS security
What kind of security? There are different definitions. What is it exactly that you want to know?

comment How to check randomness of random number generators?
@peterh you can easily miss this. Also, try what happens when it repeats itself every 1023 bits, and you have a repetition after lcm(1023, 64) = 65472 images. The problem is that with a small number of bits in the repetition pattern, the number of images in the repetition pattern is already very large.

comment How to check randomness of random number generators?
He has an 8 byte, so 64 bit number. Suppose the bitstream repeats itself every 63 bits. You won't notice the 63 image pattern. Instead, you should look at the bitstream itself and see when it starts repeating itself.

comment Is a ptr mechanism in an SPF record secure?
@sebix yes to the last question: if somedomain.com has ptr in its SPF record, I can setup a PTR record on my IP to point to somedomain.com and send mail from that domain without any problems, right? Why is this not an issue?

comment Secure copy-paste from phone to computer
@schroeder actually I was thinking about asking you to turn this into an answer ;) I know rolling your own is a no-no, but would like to learn from this. Why would this not be secure, what would be its vulnerabilities? If you would write an answer stating what you stated now in the comments you can be sure to get an upvote from me (although that would probably be my tomorrow morning).

@schroeder ah alright, I'm sorry then, and I'll look into that. You say that twitter would be inherently more secure? Could you perhaps elaborate on that? I also intended to learn something about security protocols asking this question :)

comment Secure copy-paste from phone to computer
@schroeder is that a serious suggestion? I'm not so up to date with jokes in this community, so if there's a joke, I'm not getting it. I would rather not rely on a third party for this. Their system down means my system down. Anyway, I'm asking about a proposed protocol. Would that be secure?

@schroeder that is a good idea, but I'd prefer something that I don't have to remember to take my cable with me.

comment Someone or something tried to login to my Gmail using IP address of my shared hosting
Do a search in your files for 'gmail' to check if you have any script that may do that. If not, contact your hosting. They should have logs, or they can at least check the other users' files.
