Wow, some very interesting new research here:

Researchers published attacks that can recover encryption keys from Trusted Computing Modules (TPMs) (which isn't supposed to be possible) by timing elliptic curve signature generation. "On Intel fTPM, our key recovery succeeds after about1,300 observations and in less than two minutes."

Nearly all Windows computers store BitLocker encryption keys in TPMs.

does not release the client as , because of "client for several reasons, relating to client reliability and other issues".


Also, they mix up "open-sourcing" and "outsourcing" in their FAQ.

@annalisa habe auch jetzt erst kapiert, was sehr cool ist: das ding lernt offenbar stetig weiter, auch aus aktuellen Events.

Das führt zu einigen lustigen Toots zu und einigen politischen Statements, die es aus der -Filterbubble extrahiert.
