jbove Morning from CEST. Will there be videos uploaded from the talks from the last Dweb Meetup?

nettle is a cryptographic signature a superset of a checksum? like, is there benefit in including a sha256 hash of a binary if you have a signature for it?
Dat
@dat_project_twitter
substack a signature proves authorship by a particular party but a hash proves file contents
nettle substack: but if you altered the file wouldn't the signature become invalid?
substack you could publish a new version with a new signature, i mean
substack but yes that signature would be invalid if the file changed
nettle ah right
nettle do most apps just sign the hashes, or does a signature produce a fixed-length output like hash functions?
Dat
@dat_project_twitter
substack signatures produce fixed length output but it's much more involved to check them compared to hashes
substack and there are certain things like replay attacks you may need to worry about, depending on the other circumstances of the arrangement
substack i think signatures might also be much slower than hashes if i remember correctly, so it's typical to sign hashes
substack but to verify a signature you need to download the public key and run some openssl command probably
substack but what is the threat model you're concerned about?
Dat
@dat_project_twitter
nettle we're using signatures anyways, so i was trying to determine if we needed a hash too
nettle but it seems that ed25519 prehashes its signature input anyways
nettle situation is sending android APKs p2p between phones, which are always signed
nettle so i'm trying to determine if a hash is even necessary for the verification phase

hi. New here. How dangerous is that Beaker browser shares my IP.
Dat
@dat_project_twitter
bencevans benjamink152: > Dat makes no attempt to hide IP addresses. ref: 3rd paragraph under Discovery Keys @ https://datprotocol.github.io/how-dat-works/ I think Beaker has moved to using Hyperdrive but from my understanding the networking hasn't changed in terms of sharing IPs as the sharing is required to establish connections with others peering the

@dat_project_twitter
decentral1se yep, still leaks meta by design
Dat
@dat_project_twitter
baffo32 it does not look to me like dat is designed to leak metadata. re: ip addresses, that's a different challenge, and can be layered on top

Why not make VPN or integrate one. Is it the decentralization problem or what?

substack mafintosh: hyperbeam looks pretty cool
Dat
@dat_project_twitter
substack sent a patch
substack if anyone wants to try, i'm sending a jpg of my cat tux: hyperbeam tux > tux.jpg
decentral1se ill get on that
decentral1se rad cat, success
decentral1se beamed to the netherlands
substack yay
substack i used that photo a lot to debug my ntsc encoder/decoder
substack because it has good variety of colors
decentral1se nice
Dat
@dat_project_twitter
substack decentral1se: seeing that link again is motivating me to experiment with i2p again
Dat
@dat_project_twitter
decentral1se thats cool! yeah it is a nice constructive critique, i like the work https://www.openprivacy.ca do
Dat
@dat_project_twitter
fleeky so now there is hyp, hyperbeam and hyperphone
fleeky loving all these small utilities :)

Hi everyone
I am new at this sorry if this might not sound like a real issue... I am trying to learn about p2p technology
Is there plan to build a go based implementation for the dat project?
Dat
@dat_project_twitter
substack there is a rust version, but i don't think there is a go version
Suzannekerr
@Suzannekerr
Thank you

booshnelli hi, interested in starting using hyperdrives :) as im win10, is it correct that any data i upload to a hyperdrive would be duplicated? & a system with FUSE capability wouldnt have that issue right?

@Kilian
Hey all! I'm looking for way for my app fromscratch.rocks (currently a flat-file text editor) to offer real time multi-device syncing while encrypting the text, ideally in such a way that I don't need to care about users or are responsible for any data. I think DAT can help me with that (via y.js) but I'm having trouble finding some practical "what can it do" stuff. I assume I can get this to work with two peers that are both online and get them to sync, but can DAT make the data available when the other peer is offline. Can I set up a "discovery" server that replicates data or whatever?
mmpleake
@mmpleake
@Kilian from what I've read so far it appears you'd just need to create a server that would add itself as a peer to each new share in order to provide that.
Kilian Valkhof
@Kilian
@mmpleake Thanks! I'll look into that. Fingers crossed there's a ready-made server for that :)

@samrose
Is it possible to add your own metadata onto dat files? Like if you want to create a set of tags or categories for files in dat?
mmpleake
@mmpleake
@samrose - I'm looking into similar use cases. It seems dat is built on top of hyperdrive which itself is built on hypercore - so to me it would be useful to visualize the capabilities at each layer to determine where/how to add metadata. To my understanding dat doesn't care about the files themselves so you'd need to have a different place to store metadata although it's not clear to me at the moment where would be best.
