Disclamimer: I have no connections with the GnuPG effort other
than as a thankful end user.
I have a much longer Part 2 of this. After my tongue in cheek
statment about the article at Technology Review I came up with
what they were citing, not realizing the damage that it would
do. Here is the pointer to the ACM delivery. You need to
understand that they were talking about GnuPG running on a VM
(Virtual Machine) in "the cloud":
That is nothing close to what GPG4Win is doing running natively
on Windows. I believe they picked GnuPG for a specific reason.
It is probably one of the most reliable programs written and
they were using that for proof of just how unsafe cloud computing
is. Ergo ... if GnuPG (GNU Privacy Guard) can't do it then
nothing probably can.
For a second corroborating source of the SHA1 hashes and file
sizes look here for the current and potential new ones:
I don't want to deliver part 2 any sooner than 12:00 UTC
2013-07-29. Why such a long time? I have to get it right.
I have already made at least 30 edits and am no where near
satisfied with what I have written.
Gnome 3, Ubuntu Unity, Windows 8 - poor iPhone GUI on Desktop.
Thinking has been suspended indefinitely.
Anybody caught thinking will be immediately shot!
