@Al_Kafir or do the states start swapping back doors. Russian chips will have Russian back doors? The best way for Russia to proceed is to become completely transparent. Sometimes one can see a checkmate coming many moves away but can’t stop it from happening, I think true transparency once widespread will always trump secrecy. And its funny in a way Intel has made the world transparent!
But its curious, is Russia not in a position to use Intel’s sloppy backdoor to get at Intel’s trade secrets? Or does Intel have some clean chips for its internal use somewhere. Maybe clean chips and more importantly how to verify them will be the next secret to be leaked.
The deeper implication is why did Intel sabotage the world with a huge sloppy back door. The other implication is Intel may have been sharing this sloppy backdoor with the whole governmental world in exchange for monopoly status? But that seems less likely it seems like they set up the world for a fall intentionally. Its not just that the US set up the world for cybergeddon, its that it seems to have spread the keys around for people to find. No wonder all this BS about cyber war. Russia it would seem is in a position to take Intel’s IP and do what they want with it. Do we have a “terrorist” tech company? Hate the word terrorist by the way. What so called ‘rights’ of a multinational corporation would be enforceable in light of this against a state supposedly taking steps to protect its citizens reverse the damage when it was paying all along for the damage. Suppose Russia started selling competitor clones of Intel’s chips, is Intel and the US going to whine in the medial when all Russia has to shout in the highest bidder media is take a look at your in Intel property its intentionally dirty! Its sounds lake tapping a loaded gun and a set of keys to all the doors of a home next to all the windows of the home on the exterior of the home.
But this also fits in with the spooky stuff David Irvine was talking about with the prime number math underlying all standard cryptography being rapidly eroded by seemingly quick advances in algebraic proofs and theorems, which apparently David Irvine saw enough of the writing on the wall to take SAFE in a somewhat different direction.
I’d like to know how much clean custom hardware designed from the ground up would speed up the SAFE network.
There is one most spooky possibility of all that would unfortunately make sense of this stuff. One world government has already taken hold quite solidly and it is malevolent as expected. Was it Intel chips that helped screw with some the Iranian centrifuges? One would think this would have implications for all the tax evaders with money in Caymans. Maybe some bs secret law helps explain why the FBI director did so much entitled whining when Apple decided to increase the security of its phones?
