"no one is going to want to trust the NSA for beans when it comes to consulting with them on cryptographic questions or security"
That's kind of like consulting with the fox on how to best guard the hen house, don't you think?
***** Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted. *****
>> Anyone think the NSA's "Secure Enhanced Linux" (SELinux) is worth the digital paper it's printed on now?
More so than a backdoored Windows install. It was proven over 15 years ago that Microsoft had given the NSA the keys to the kingdom (http://www.heise.de/tp/artikel/5/5263/1.html), but when we told anyone we were called tin-foil hats.
SELinux is open code that's had a lot of non-NSA eyes on it, it's many many times less likely to have backdoors than Windows 8.1 or server 2012.
Even Android phones (based on Linux) is much more likely to have backdoors in it, since you don't get to look at the code that actually ends up on the device or re-compile it from source yourself.
Well, at least now I won't look half as crazy when I'm railing agains Microsoft's (in)Secure Boot
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
