SectorLisp is a lot of fun. Thank you! Those will take some time to build for all the platforms, but I will get there!

#4 Someway to prevent "man in the middle" 5 months ago

Comment by ~lenatrauman on ~lenatrauman/2.4kbps.net

My pleasure. I am not going to force https or redirect to https though, because in this case the site might not be accessible from devices I want to.

This is a complicated issue, absolutely. And I don't know of a good way of solving it.

Adding mandatory strong encryption will make data on the site inaccessible to all but new computers. Adding weak encryption or no encryption allows for MITM attacks.

There's strong encryption for git access, so if you wish so, it is possible to download the files through git or git over https. There's a non-mandatory https version of the site (just add https:// instead of http://).

I see three potential worries:

  1. First and foremost, the files I distribute are binaries, and there is no guarantee that they are free from viruses and malware. You got to trust me on that. Do you trust me?

  2. What if someone is somehow MITMing this particular website, and altering the contents of both zip archives and HTML pages, perhaps, going as far as making CRCs match the CRCs in the git? This can be avoided by going to https version or getting files over git.

  3. Non-targeted attack. This used to be a very common thing on some ISPs in some countries: changing the context of the files on the fly automatically. This can be solved by using CRCs provided.

So... I don't know what I am trying to say. :D does my rambling help?

[[PGP Signed Part:Undecided]] I have added pre-built CollapseOS for PC/AT (padded disk.bin to become a valid floppy image, too) and RC2014 to the site. I don't know if CollapseOS on PC/AT behaves the way it should, it looks a bit different from CollapseOS in RC2014 emulator. Could you please check?

I have very little idea about what CollapseOS is and how it works, so I kept as much documentation as possible in the archives. I also added RC2014 emulator to the RC2014 archive, in theory it should be enough for a really clever person to reconstruct RC2014 in hardware.

Tested on QEMU, the grid based text editor starts without issues. So it seems to be working. Gonna test it on real hardware later, I can't write a floppy from this one.

I think games are a fine addition to the collection! I will need to reorganize the site structure a little bit before that, but it is on my TODO list!

This is a good idea. I'll try to find/make a bootable image and/or executable.
