IBM ist neben Google auf dem Gebiet der Quantencomputer führend. Nun gibt es für Europa am Standort Ehningen den ersten Quantencomputer mit mehr als 25 Qubits (IBM Q System). IBM und die Frauenhofer-Gesellschaft hatten im März 2020 unter Vermittlung von Angela Merkel eine Vereinbarung unterschrieben um die Forschung zu Quantencomputern in Deutschland voranzutreiben. Der Quantencomputer kann zur Entwicklung von Batterie- und Brennstoffzellen für bessere Algorithmen für die industrielle Fertigung, Entwicklung, Logisitik, Energie und im Finanzwesen sowie zur Stabilitätsanalysen kritischer Infrastrukturnetzwerke verwendet werden.

͏Outright overhauled version of a̅tea:
  1. Corrected an incorrect free of the public key striking if the TLSA record contains a hash of the public key rather than a hash of the whole cerificate. The key obtained via X509_get_X509_PUBKEY must not be freed as it belongs to the whole X509 certificate. Previously possible arbitrary code execution!
  2. 64bit file offsets on 32bit systems allowing for continuation of file downloads with more than 4GB
  3. two flavours of a̅tea: unbound (as previously) and direct (no need for special DNS servers, currently no signature validation)
  4. license & code reusage: choose your license between ISC, GPLv3 and others
  5. correct retrieval of DANE TLSA records if certificate differs from that used at port 443 (default SSL port)
  6. automatic check for outdated certificates (can be switched off)
  7. possibility to print the most important certificate properties on command line including hashes for comparison in browsers and as used in TLSA records.
  8. correct printing of IPv3 addresses if portions of the address are greater or equal to 128
  9. “-hh” option to not only print the response but the http request sent before
  10. noop operation for merely checking and printing certificates
  11. no more separate code blocks for tii and tii-cert: code unified
dig _443._tcp.elstel.org TLSA → TLSA 3 0 1 XXXXX: 3: direct cert usage; 0: full cert/ 1: public key; 1: sha256



Canadá: Convocatoria para un día nacional de duelo

Muchos niños habían perdido la vida en escuelas residenciales indias. Según un artículo del National Post, a mayoria de los niños murieron de tuberculosis. La desnutrición era un problema. Carecían incluso de la atención médica más básica. Un niño murió después de pisar un clavo. Los más notables son los niños que murieron porque intentaron escapar por ejemplo por miedo a ser golpeados. La tasa de mortalidad promedio fue tan alta como bajo la custodia de los prisioneros de guerra canadienses en custodia nazi (1:50). Además de las pérdidas de vidas, los efectos de la alienación cultural causada por estas escuelas continúan durando y pueden propiciar cosas como el alcoholismo o tasas más altas de suicidio. En otras partes del mundo esos internados siguen siendo una realidad. En nuestro último mensaje hemos informado de niños que murieron después de huir de un internado en Malasia (todavía puede firmar la petición a partir de entonces…).

Muitas crianças perderam a vida em escolas residenciais indianas. De acordo com um artigo do National Post, a maioria das crianças morria de tuberculose. A desnutrição era um problema. Eles careciam até mesmo dos cuidados de saúde mais básicos. Uma criança morreu após pisar em um prego. Mais notavelmente são aquelas crianças que morreram porque tentaram fugir por exemplo com medo de serem espancadas. A taxa média de mortalidade foi tão alta quanto sob os Prisioneiros de Guerra canadenses sob custódia nazista (1:50). Além das perdas de vidas, os efeitos da alienação cultural causada por essas escolas continuam a durar e podem prejudicar coisas como alcoolismo ou taxas de suicídio. Em outras partes do mundo, aqueles internatos ainda são uma realidade. Em nossa última mensagem, relatamos sobre crianças que morreram após fugir de um internato na Malásia (você ainda pode assinar a petição a partir de então…).

Many children had lost their lives in Indian Residential Schools. According to an article of the National Post most children died of tuberculosis. Malnutrition was a problem. They did lack even the most basic health care. One child died after stepping on a nail. Most notably are those children who died because they tried to run away f.i. in the fear of being beaten. The average death rate was as high as under Canadian Prisoners of War in Nazi custody (1:50). Besides the losses in lives the effects of cultural alienation caused by these school continue to last and may pander things like alcoholism or higher suicide rates. In other parts of the world such boarding schools are still a realtiy. In our last message we have reported from children who died after running away from a boarding school in Malaysia (You can still sign the petition from then…).
