PoSHMagiC0de Posted October 17, 2017 Share Posted October 17, 2017 hey Folks, I hope all will read this. There has been interest in post about cryptology. In general, people asking about how to use crypto tools, do crypto, break crypto, leverage crypto, etc. Briefly there were people asking about crypto in payloads (not subject that I would like discussed here if not pertaining to using crypto for obfuscation.). In private chat there has been interest in it towards me and even someone from Hak5 mod group mentioning they would be interested in something and would not be against the idea of beginning a forum section for it. Why do we need a separate section? Well, look at crypto. For all crypto questions, can you pick 1 forum it would fit in? I do not. If I want to post about crypto programmically then the app and coding section would suffice. What if I wanted to know about GPG, maybe General questions, applications, Security all three would work. What about writing code that uses GNUPGP for stuff and you the person needs function GPG can do and how to interact via code? You tell me where that would go. What will be discussed. Everything crypto. Help identify a hash for someone, post your own "roll your own crypto" algorithm, answer questions on how to do AES or RSA crypto. Anything crypto from crypto app usages to doing your own can be discussed. It will give the crypto guys a place to look if they feel like discussing or answering questions about the topic too. Last, all other boards also see a need to separate out this topic because it covers multiple areas that anyone wanting to talk about crypto will be hopping all over the forums for a good place to post. What we should not discuss. I say any question leading to direct illegal goals. That means no questions on how to write crypto lockers or such. I know that code people may post may be able to be combined with others code to eventually create a crypto locker but some people already know that once you get down how to do crypto in a language, it is trivial to convert it to something bad. That cannot be stopped but hopefully we will no entice by directly assisting in it. What does everyone think? Maybe I should have made this a poll. One can be created if folks actually read and respond to this one hehe. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
