Re: [Bitcoin-development] secure assigned bitcoin address directory

2014-04-02 Thread Mike Hearn
Hi Daryl,

I think the reason nobody has done that is that BIP70 isn't really that
much work. It's basically just certs inside a protobuf, with a bit of extra
data. I'm not sure yet another way to do the same thing is worth much.


On Wed, Apr 2, 2014 at 2:59 AM, Daryl Banttari dbantt...@gmail.com wrote:

 Chris,

 Thank you for taking the time to look at my proposal.

 1) pay to addresses are not fixed - ie you can have a different address
 for each transaction (which is why BIP70 is necessary to allow per
 transaction addresses via https.)


 This is certainly true for a published address; however a new address
 (and URL) can be generated for each one-off peer-to-peer transaction.
  However, I'd expect that most of the time this use case will be handed by
 BIP70.  Still, this could allow someone to implement a authenticated,
 non-repudiable payment request without having to go through the hassle of a
 full BIP70 implementation.


 2) unless you are already aware of the  public key of the signature, you
 do not know if the signature is made by the person you think it is supposed
 to be from. See recent concern over fake key for Gavin Andresen. Ie a
 signature can always be verified with a valid public key, the question is
 was it the real person's key. That is what WoT tried to resolve with
 so-called signing parties, nowadays keys posted to a public forum by a
 known user, but it's not a standard and not ideal.


 My proposal leverages the existing SSL key system (yes, PKI), so there is
 a reasonable expectation that if the signature verifies, it came from the
 party indicated on the cert.  While SSL (and the PKI system underpinning
 it) have its faults, the example you highlighted was specifically a problem
 with WoT, not PKI.  Can a compromised web server cause payments to be made
 to the wrong party?  Of course-- but that's already true.  And that's not
 something BIP70 solves (or attempts to solve) either.

 (To explain [better than I could] why I feel PKI is a pragmatic solution,
 I defer to Mike Hearn 's article:
 https://medium.com/bitcoin-security-functionality/b64cf5912aa7)

[Bitcoin-development] Detailed gitian build guide

2014-04-02 Thread Wladimir
Hello all,

I'm working on a detailed guide on how to install and set up a Debian VM
for gitian building. As this guide can be used on any operating system that
has VirtualBox, hopefully this will make it easier for people to get
started with gitian builds.

See https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/3994

Rendered version is here:
https://github.com/laanwj/bitcoin/blob/2014_04_debian_gitian_build_doc/doc/gitian-building.md

Comments and patches are welcome.
If you bump into problems while following the guide please let me know.

Wladimir

As far as choice of U R L, it may be a poor choice but I did this
because I wanted it connected with the core. As far as fishing it
certainly is not that! This is a serious project.

I tell you that this is a serious project for bitcoin. You are free to
assume the worst. After all, I did say the good the bad and the ugly
would come out of this. I happen to be a big believer in bitcoin and I
feel this project holds water. If you disagree, that's fine.

I understand now why someone thought I was fishing. That link should 
work just fine...I'm not sure what the problem is as I know I forked 
correctly. I guess I'll need to register a domain for it an get a 
page going and link from there. I just haven't gotten around to it 
but will do that. I'll get going! Just know that I would never set 
up fishing; that's not my style.

 I think it's possible that 'Kevin' is for real and maybe he doesn't realize 
 he linked to a phishing site, if it was an accident.  If this is the same 
 person, then he's blind, and maybe that's why he wrote 'U R L' instead of the 
 usual 'URL', by using speech to text or some other assistive tech.  It might 
 be that he tried to fork github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin and just provided the 
 wrong link.  But regardless, stay away from the one with two Bs in it.

 Thanks,
 Laszlo

Thank you for giving me the benifit of the doubt.  I did not realize my

Re: [Bitcoin-development] Detailed gitian build guide

Nice!

I wonder how much of this could be scripted.

 Hello all,
 
 
 I'm working on a detailed guide on how to install and set up a Debian
 VM for gitian building. As this guide can be used on any operating
 system that has VirtualBox, hopefully this will make it easier for
 people to get started with gitian builds.
 
 
 See https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/3994
 
 
 Rendered version is here:
 https://github.com/laanwj/bitcoin/blob/2014_04_debian_gitian_build_doc/doc/gitian-building.md
 
 
 
 Comments and patches are welcome.
 
 If you bump into problems while following the guide please let me
 know.

Everything, probably, using vmbuilder (and/or vagrant as Nick Simpson
suggests). But that's not the point here. It is to provide exact steps that
people can follow to get a basic (virtual) machine that they can use to do
gitian builds.

I didn't want to end up with a gitian-builder-that-builds-a-gitian-builder
:-) The host machine may not even have any scripting languages installed
(in the case of Windows).

It may be possible to script *some* parts (most of the quoted bash script
is runnable as script) without automating the entire process, but I hope
that over time we can make Gitian itself easier to use/setup, so that less
steps are needed in the first place.
