    Blog - iMessage with PQ3: The new state of the art in quantum-secure messaging at scale – Apple



    Dougee Says:
    iMessage lacked post-compromise security.
    In the Signal protocol, your communication keys are constantly updated and “ratcheted” forwards. This means that a compromised phone/backup won’t be useful for long. You’ll replace the stolen keys within a few minutes. In iMessage this wasn’t true: public keys were long-lived.
    The new update adds periodic rekeying using elliptic curve cryptography, to ensure that compromised keys quickly become useless, both in the future and for decrypting past messages. This closes an important threat vector.
    Along with key transparency, this makes iMessage a state-of-the-art cryptographic protocol.
    Even with those improvements, the remaining problem is that elliptic curve crypto is not secure against future quantum computing advances. This doesn’t matter today, but if such computers are built in the future, they could be used to decrypt past conversations.
    So Apple has made two changes in this update.



    Frequent elliptic curve rekeying.



    Second “post quantum secure” algorithm: Kyber.


    This algorithm rekeys as well, but a litt

Great Apple Podcast

I really enjoy listening to this podcast, especially when the host interviews software companies like serif and skylum which were really good insights on what motivates the companies.

Also the podcast has great giveaways.

Definitely worth a listen, great British podcast 👍🏻

Still going, still growing, getting better but not losing its charm

I have listened to this show for a long time - well basically since the start... It was always full of enthusiasm and decent chatter, and now it has matured into a somewhat more coherent form and overall you can tell the guys have been learning as they go. Over the last 15-18 months I feel this show has really started to get a bit slicker with better sound and some really quite high profile guests. Still feels like some guys doing it for the "craic" but that's part of its charm I think.
