No they are not
AES-128 has a 16 byte block size, stream ciphers can encrypt byte by byte. A SMS holds 160 characters
RE: RE: NO
so let me get this right,
when you got your phone out of the box with a leaflet stating "your pin is 1234", then you ring you voice mail and are promoted for a pin. you had no idea that there would be a facility to change it?
What I am trying to say is that: 'hacking' personal information via a default pin is not as malicious as using a exploit.
I would say this is equal if not worse than the "phone hacking", the public however I doubt will give a dam
Rupert Murdoch is the owner of a news corporation which should not be acting illegally, Lulzsec is a illegal hacking group.
We expect illegal activity from a hacking group not a news corporation.
More privacy than facebook/google
How is there greater privacy, the TTP (trusted 3rd party) still must know every site you visit; No privacy gained what so ever.
if they really wanted privacy, then there would be in a encrypted payload held by the client. the key is that only the TTP could create the payload but would distribute it to the client at a earlier date where the payload is not site specific just verifies the client.
also to the comments "anyone who sits down in front of your system can log in as 'you'" , unless you anally lock your screen and and sign out over every website after visiting NO protection is lost.
What if i register
etc etc etc
I trust hoover.com. , but hoover.net or hoover.biz is a no no for me.
how in future do i know which domains are the trustworthy ones? do i have to check the DC for every site i visit as typing/pasting the address is no longer a rule which i can follow
