No. It was a practical move, although yes that is pretty close to the line: 'sorry guys you have to go elsewhere'. Basically it was the only way to be accepted at our hosting company, as I understand it. It had nothing to do with divulging information.

I wish someone would make a bot that only double checks the new canary from the previous to highlight the differences.

The point of the canary is that it can't always say "We HAVE had an order from ____ to do ___”, right? It's the absence of some of these sentences that confirm the action?

A GPG-signed canary would allow you to publish authenticated messages irrespective of the security status of the website.

The only attackers that can fake a valid signature from a consistent key are the ones that have access to the computer used to sign.

How many authentication bypass vulnerabilities in web applications were discovered in the past 10 years?

How would that make someone NOT post a canary over a 2 month period? If I was completely locked out of my own account for 2 months then that would mean we've completely lost control of the whole website anyway, so the signature would be redundant.

Yeah, that's not good authentication. Not good enough for something as critical as a warrant canary.

Edit: also, you should consider making your canary less broad. For example, if you got a gag order over something trivially stupid that did not actually compromise the integrity of this site, then you couldn't publish your canary nor explain to users what was going on, causing unnecessary panic and assumptions of the worst (ie: people think your https key was given to Mallory but really you just had to give an IP address to the FBI of someone who just threatened another school shooting)

If you're on linux, most distros have it built in with GnuPG. For Windows, there's Gpg4win. It can be used via the command line or the GPA front end.

Interesting, but I feel as though if I was in a situation where my saidit account was compromised, then my key would also probably be compromised. The idea about it being useful to verify who I am if I have to change accounts is interesting. What software is required to make it work?

Right, so we're initially trusting that you are who you say you are when you share your public key. After that though, we can verify messages signed by you as being authentic (as long as you protect your private key sufficiently). If anything were to happen to Saidit, or if your account were compromised, you could verify your identity with a signed message. It would also prevent the possibility of modifying a past post or canary because of the timestamp. Also you could use it to communicate securely, in case anyone needed to send you an encrypted message. It's not foolproof, but it does provide some additional security backed by strong cryptography.

I guess I don't understand how's it any different from me simply posting or not posting the thing in the first place? I just don't understand the benefit I guess. The fact the magora7 account is posting the canary on saidit, is the signature. What security does a GPG signature add beyond this already-existing proof of identity?

What if we had like 5 different canaries, each for a different topic?

Of course you have to trust that you're getting the public key from a legitimate source initially, but after you've added a public key to your keychain AFAIK there is no known way to fake a signed message unless I'm missing something.

I don't think that increases authenticity or security at all imo, as they're extremely easy to fake.

Note that it can't be said if any orders were made, but rather you can say that you never got any orders, which is why the past canaries are available. ;) ;) -wink- -wink-

Would like to see these posted with a GPG signature.

What about them? I don't see what that has to do with the canary

What about the people you have banned? Or the subs you’ve shut down?
