General Software Discussion / looking for a Win XP x64 beep.sys
« on: July 08, 2013, 09:22 AM »
Hi there fellow DCers,

haven't been around in a while, but here goes :)

I'm currently looking (kind of desperately) for a copy of beep.sys from a Win XP x64 system (the x64 is crucial here, 32bit wont do).
I already found it on the net on the classic but rather shady "dll download" portals.
I'd much rather get it from someone that has a higher reputation and trust-level than ;)

So, are there any folks out there still running XP x64 and willing to share a copy of their beep.sys?
Any help is much appreciated :)

Hi there,
it's been quite a while since I've been truly active here with anything coding related.

I've been working with the boost library for the last weeks and really like it.  However, I've barely scratched it on the surface.
I'm now looking for a good book on the topic to get into it in way more detail.
I've already got a couple of years of C++ experience under my belt so I'm not looking for anything like the 'Dummies' series ;)
Something that covers best practices, examples, and patterns would be perfect.

So here I am, asking for your recommendations on the topic :)
Any pointers you can give me are much appreciated.

Adventures of Baby Cody / Baby Cody arrives in Stuttgart, Germany
« on: March 11, 2011, 01:27 PM »
Hello fellow DCers, it's been quite a while since I've last been active on the forums.
This is going to change now since I'll be reporting on Baby Cody's adventures in Stuttgart.

A few minutes ago Cody flew through the door of shackspace, the Stuttgart hackerspace.
I managed to snap a quick photo of him when he landed right in the middle of one of the electronic lab's workbenches.
The guys at shackspace are currently in the middle of renovating their newly acquired space and then moving their stuff from the old to the new one.  Cody kindly offered to help with the logistics and will be supervising the move!

Stay tuned for more Baby Cody news over the following days!

Mircryption / AES-256 less secure than AES-128

This just in from #mircryption
I'll just quote it here since lizzy didn't want to sign up just for that:

123446 <lizzy_> hi guys
123504 <lizzy_> we have a BIG problem, at the Pre-panic stage:
123523 <lizzy_> look at today's
123550 <lizzy_> Cryptography is all about safety margins. If you can break n round of a cipher, you design it with 2n or 3n rounds. What we're learning is that the safety margin of AES is much less than previously believed. And while there is no reason to scrap AES in favor of another algorithm, NST should increase the number of rounds of all three AES variants -- now, before there is a reason to panic.
123614 <lizzy_> At this point, I suggest AES-128 at 16 rounds, AES-192 at 20 rounds, and AES-256 at 28 rounds. Of maybe even more; we don't want to be revising the standard again and again.
123614 <lizzy_> And, even more strongly, I suggest that people don't use AES-256. AES-128 provides more than enough security margin for the forseeable future.

Living Room / 2009/May/31 - DC/IOSx02 - DC Meetup Berlin, Germany
« on: March 29, 2009, 09:25 AM »

hello fellow DCers,
today I have the distinct honor to announce:

DC/IOSx02 - Donationcoder Meetup / In Outer Space - the 2nd installment

location: c-base - space station below berlin
rungestrasse 20, 10179 berlin, germany
datetime: 2009/May/31 / 5pm / open end

when we met last time right after the annual chaos communication congress 25C3 early january this year it was a small yet awesome meetup.
so awesome in fact, we agreed to do it again!

as last time already the event will be held on board c-base, the space station buried below berlin.
c-base, conveniently located in berlin's city center, can be reached by subway via stops S+U jannowitzbruecke or U heinrich-heine-strasse.

we still don't believe in agendas, so this is an open discussion / hangout / boozing / lounge / nerd event.
if you're in the area (there happens to be a certain 'it security congress' at the same time) please drop by and join us for some bottles of club-mate and/or brewskies.

for questions of any kind please contact me or housetier.
if you're planning to attend, please let us know so we get a rough idea of what to expect.
