Confidentiality test

by Volker Weber

Sometimes I am tested how good I can keep a secret. There is a simple mechanism for that. I am being told a bogus secret. I am the only person who knows it. If that secret becomes public there is circumstantial evidence I can't keep it.

Now you apply that test to a machine, for instance a Sametime server. If the machine loses a secret invented for the server, some dishonest admin reads chat logs. Run more than one experiment.


And make the secret look worth sharing...

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
