In which case, this problem reduces to exactly the same one as e.g. VPNs, SSL...

The keys are asymmetric, so the decryption key is never sent over the wire. It has to be looked up in a table. New media are supposed to carry a blacklist of compromised keys which sinks and sources update in non-volatile memory and never use once marked as compromised.
Presumably there is a defined supply chain for hardware, so I envisaged the company's own CP key table being blown into every device before deployment rather than being generated on the fly and transmitted over a presumed un-secure wire.
It's just moving the problems of secure data exchange from e.g. the internet onto another wire; a wire that already has an encryption standard.
It might be possible even for an encrypted version of the key-pair to be downloaded from e.g. a trusted server. I believe there's a protocol for ethernet over HDMI already.
The goal in this scenario is to at least detect unauthorised data removal.
If a new HDCP standard emerged with the ability to, say, flash upload a unique key pair between source and sink, then you could pair the graphics card of a PC to a specific monitor and any interloper on the HDMI line would see not a lot at all.
I see a further revision of HDCP coming with more user/owner configurable encryption key options.
I rather like it. Some of the metaphysical imagery is particularly effective. And there are interesting rhythmic devices which seem to counterpoint the surrealism of the underlying metaphor of the humanity or vogonity of the editor's compassionate soul which strives through the medium of the page structure to sublimate this, transcend that and come to terms with the fundamental dichotomies of the other. And one is left with a profound and vivid insight into... into.. whatever it is the website is about!
No, I'm only fooling. It's shit. Take it down to number 2 airlock and throw it out. Shoot it first if you want.
Re: Arrrghhhh... Drop down menus
I don't use those category menu items anyway. I just like the news in one big steaming pile that I can sift through in a few seconds flat looking for pop-out words of interest. Like Boobs or The Doctor or BOFH.
Is it April the 1st already?
Or is 12/12 now Trolling Day?
Re: Oracle shared services
But there are many routers set up in such a way, by default, that the administration system is only available from the LAN, and that account has a default password. So once you have the WiFi password, you are in and able to administrate, change DNS/default route etc.
Re: HomeHub 5 is the most secure system in the WORLD
I think that is not a design feature...
I use a separate WiFi access point, router and DHCP/DNS server. So they'd have to guess at least two passwords to change the DNS setting. And I don't use the defaults anyway. But at least Sky etc have been blowing unique default passwords into their kit for the last few years, so it's not quite as bad as it used to be. I think this is more scaremongering headline grabbing demi-marketing by Avast.
Re: Looks really nice.
Oh yeah! That's the one.
Looks really nice.
Great idea, and it's followed through.
I wonder if Apple are working on integrating e-Ink pixels into an OLED display? They should be. This could give them a serious run for their money.

Ah yes. Janet and John start coding.

You could tell which of our fighting forces he'd been making cloth for that day by the colour of his skin when he got back. Blue-grey for the RAF, yellow for the desert forces, navy for the Navy, obviously.
He got drunk after work one Friday and fell asleep in a garden hedge on his way home. He'd been dyeing for the army that day; DPM or camo as they used to call it. We didn't find him until Sunday morning.
My grandfather dyed during the war. Up at the local uniform factory.
Erm... whatever you say.
It's about this point that I give up and set up a stall selling batik died tee-shirts.
Can't we have a murder carriage?
For, you know, people who like to read crime fiction, Agatha Christie, Sherlock Holmes etc. You have to workout whodunnit by the time you reach Oxford...
My brain started whistling about half-way through that. :(
They've also cut down on tunnelling costs by simply painting a railway tunnel onto the side of the hills and training a flock of road runners to drive the trains.
Re: In free fall, no one can hear you scream, "Which way is up?".
And somehow it calculates its height above some object below it? How, just HOW?
The Falcon in atmospheric flight...
Reminded me a bit of that StarTrek film that Jar Jar Abrams did. You know, the bit with the Enterprise coming out of the water, and the bit where space ships were doing atmospheric dives...
Re: Install Media Hint.
Well, that feature has been available from British Airways for like, the last century or something. Fsch!
That's the thing about those Cornish dishes...
lovely hand crimped edges.
You'll be wanting Robert's Robots in there as well. And Metal Mickey.
Re: What about AI's?
If you included AI, you'd have to allow Proteus from Demon Seed.
Muffit II the Daggit would have to be included if you allowed film length TV series things.
Does it have farto go?
Oh, I don't know... there's many, many lessons to be learned from the UK government's handling of IT projects.
Re: Christ on a bike!
So long as they see we, as a race, are shitting in the aquarium and install some better filters etc.
Christ on a bike!
Have these people never seen Dr Who? Yeah, great idea, not, putting a big cache of DNA up on the moon for any old passing invasion fleet to turn into some kind of 'blood control' weapon.
Re: oh joy
My brown starfish has been leaking away for a while now.
Re: IT angle
No starfish tank, but I do have a coral drawer.
I mean, it's interesting and all, but...
where's the IT angle?
This is 2014
So the warning would have to be fixed to the bottom of the screen using jquery in dark grey on top of light grey in a microscopic typeface but it only appears after you have started to infinitely scroll down through the reviews, continuously adjusting your mouse/pointer position as the scroll bar's active target area shrinks and shrinks and shrinks as the page fills up with rubbish and never stops loading anyway?
Re: Useful debris
I've analysed the readings from the MP3 detector and...
it looks like a limpet rocket of some kind. Like the sort they use to clear space junk. It must be based inside one of those derelicts out there.
Yes. Yes it can. It also shits rainbows.
Re: I don't know about the T&C's
First goal is in a box the size of Windscale. The stretch goals are "a box van", "a shoe box" and finally "a match box". Additional stretch goal is to make it compatible with Windows 8.
Sounds like a Harry Potter spell. Certainly magic that the little fella's down and appears safe.
Given the noodly appearance of aforementioned Jaggaroth species... They were created in 'His' image.
If they find them, it will put a big tick next to that bit of the life-from-space hypothesis. If they don't find them, then the hypothesis stays as it. Anyway, we all know that life on earth started when the Jaggaroth space ship exploded during lift off, scattering alien amino acids across the primal soup of the planet.

Do you live in Watford as well, then?
Re: Osgood's Death - Needless? Pointless?
She lost all that weight for a start.
Re: half an inch precision tech?
A thousandth of an inch error? That's nothing. At Derby Carriage and Wagon Works, they were always spot on.
It's a safety exercise which they can enumerate to the bean counters as having regular cost savings above and beyond being sued and fined when it all goes bogey up.
Re: Do you have to...
If you're an engineering graduate you are fast-tracked.
Re: Good, but not good enough
Did you know that there's an electricity meter on every power pickup car, which communicates wirelessly at defined service reading locations? That way, the ToCs can pay their 'leccy bill to Network Rail who supplied the juice.
