@mydogisahusky You're totally right! Depending on which level you are educating you will have to adapt your instruments. Not one will fit for all
- Extra: with the use of your passport you can open addresses and make transactions
I've used another oversimplification before:
- You, your very self are a private key. As long as you own your DNA no one else can be you (Keep your private key offline)
- Your passport is your public key and is derived from yourself. It's not possible to generate a passport of someone else and a passport can be verified against the private key (photo) to verify if it belongs to the private keys it claims to belong to.
@duudl3 Like I said, I don't know the goal of your project. If this fits you, go ahead!
I'm glad you aren't saving a private keys (hashed or not) from a keypair. That's where this conversation started.
@duudl3 Sure I am 🙃
@duudl3 Have you considered to use a public/private keypair?
@duudl3 I don't consider something offline when it's stored on my internet connected device.
@duudl3 Sure I do, otherwise we wouldn't be talking here.
I only speak about private keys in the context of a private/public keypair.
Looks like I don't know the end goals of your project.
@duudl3 So your "private key" is just another password. Why not use a keypair? Anything that touches the internet is doomed to be exploited. I want to keep my private key offline.
@fraying Keeping you in mind! I've got a side project that that might need some designs at some point
Hi @internaut, nice to meet another fellow of the SFDEA here! What's your current mission if I may ask?
@nvk That's what I thought. Sure, wasn't a motion of distrust against you. Just technically.
Unfortunately not able to play with an instance myself atm...
Don't trust. Verify.
| DONT TRUST. |
| VERIFY. |
How much control/power has a Mastondon instance owner? Looks like there is still little verification going on.
@nvk can you toot in my name? You have my permission to try.
@alonsovalencia Here you go: 62cwau56zfsnbeyh4ds7a6qqhciirpyl4ijzy754jf34cvd4la5akjid.onion/
@alan8325 I request a fork on the toot!
