It’s too early on a Saturday morning for me to comprehend this paper. I’m going back to figuring out AWS.

What apps would you love to have open-source alternatives for?

It seems like the FOSS community is continuing to grow, and FOSS apps keep getting better (Immich reallh blew my mind recently), which is a big win 😎 but there are still many apps I use that I would kill for an open source alternative. I am curious what you guys think? Are there any apps you’d love alternatives for?

I would love a FOSS version of Rhino3D.

Help Building a Stream Box

So I don’t know if this is the proper community to post this in but after the recent shenanigans that Roku has pulled I want to redo my entertainment setup and stream my media through a box I control. I have a couple of Odroid N2+ laying around and I’m trying to build a stream box out of them. First I tried CoreElec but...

If they don’t create a new law then how will these parents impose their parenting on other families?

Well the thing is Taiwan’s official name is the Republic of China and they, just like the People’s Republic of China, consider themselves to be China. Officially it is a reunification (by force if necessary) of the two China’s. Its not like North and South Korea where they are officially separate countries because they both consider themselves to be one country. It’s a complicated situation from a civil war and colonization from Japan.

Ok since my “post is full of dumb” let me provide some reference material so you can enlighten yourself. Here is a Wikipedia article on the One China policy. Here is on from the Taiwan page.

EDIT: Also I never said that Taiwan considers itself part of China. I said that the Republic of China considers themselves to be China, as in, the official Chinese government. The PRC also considers itself to be official China and it considers Taiwan to be a rogue state, like how Catalonia was going rouge in Spain except the Republic of China considers itself the govt of China.

No, the Republic of China considers itself to be the official Chinese government and that other government, the People’s Republic of China, is a rouge state. The RC doesn’t have the military might to bring them under control and the PRC feels the same about the RC. It’s like if Texas and other southern states went rouge, declared themselves the United States of America, claimed all 50 states as part of America, and DC called BS and also claimed all 50 states. If no force is used to reconcile then only negotiations remain and that is where China is now.

I can and do donate to the Lemmy project. I should also donate to the instances I use. I’ll donate for you as well, I don’t even need Netflix.

Let’s apply that question to the rest of the world. Why the Middle East? Why Eastern Europe? Why Asia? Why Latin America?

You have to be a paying customer to use that app IIRC.

You’ve got some crazy wishful thinking if you think this is enough for people to give up their guns.

[Question] Is this a secure way to generate passwords (sh.itjust.works)

So I’ve been trying to create more secured passwords now that I have employment where I have responsibility. They require us to change our passwords every 3 months. I used to use the same passwords for multiple sites. Then I used a password manager and got rid of those memory passwords. With this job I don’t want to mix my...

I may not have been clear in my original post. My work computer does have it’s own KeePass database. This question is for my use of a Yubikey on multiple sites. For clarification I use a separate Yubikey to store my work computer credentials that I back up to my personal Keepass database (can’t access the work database if I’m locked out). I do this because of the requirement to change passwords every three months and I don’t want to reuse the limited passwords I remember so I use a password generator.

My question is with using a “prefix” with my personal Yubikey (the one I don’t use for work). Specifically, even if the last 40 characters is from a generator configured to generate a high entropy excellent quality password if I use that password with a different “prefix” (different lengths too) for different sites then would it really be compromised if one site gets hacked? They are different passwords, different hashes, different entropy. It’s just a large part is the same. I don’t know much about security I just want to know if this is a risk. I’m trying to move my security from something that I memorize to something that I physically have and know.

You can tweak the algorithm to match the requirements in KeePassXC. That is for passwords for individual sites that have requirements. This “prefix” algorithm would be for applications that don’t have those requirements. Applications can range from website logins to password protected encrypted volumes.

I’m sorry. My original post did not convey my intentions adequately. The fact that I have to change my password every 3 months is what sparked my curiosity and question for my original post. For work I just generate a password using a password manager and store it on a Yubikey that I use for work purposes when I need to update my password. The question in the post is for a personal Yubikey. I started using a generated password on that one and wondered if adding a prefix password to it, changing the prefix for different applications, would be considered secured.

Really? The example “bank+[40 character password]” was just an example. Obviously I wouldn’t use bank for my banking credentials. I was also under the impression that many websites and applications wouldn’t store or transmit plaintext passwords (I wouldn’t use http for transmitting credentials). I do concede that there is a news story every month about a corporation getting hacked and the user’s passwords were stolen and in plaintext so they could compromise me that way. But I don’t think hackers are really going after me because I’m broke. The government maybe. This is really just so I can have a convenient way to have a complex password. I can’t remember 5 different 15-20 character complex passwords.

Eezyville,
@Eezyville@sh.itjust.works avatar

Yes. And every application has a different salt. I really just hope these websites don’t store plaintext passwords.

Eezyville,
@Eezyville@sh.itjust.works avatar

I do just that. This Yubikey is not just for websites though. I use it for apps too. Things such as my password manager, login credentials, encryption apps, etc. The idea of using it on websites got me thinking about using a base password and a seed for each app.

Edit: I also want to use it for multiple computers that I have. I use those for things like NAS, Jellyfin, Pi-hole, etc. Mostly those are Raspberry Pis. Using a password manager I’d have to copy-paste or remember each password. Not all have a web interface.

They really should just add a button. I usually just type in about:profiles in the address bar and select the profile I’ll use.

That requires more effort though. And the Chinese will just steal it anyway so…
