Can VMs generate TPM certificates? I'm wondering if an app could verify that the user is a unique physical device (to stop people creating millions of virtual devices and claiming they're unique) as a way for protecting a system that has voting in it like democratic voting. One phone/PC = one phone/PC. As a way to make deceiving the app/system more cost-intensive.

Google collects all kind of unique identifiers, most of it is probably through the Google Play Services. They hide it in the closed source.

Here is a study where the communication from a phone to Google was analyzed:
https://www.scss.tcd.ie/doug.leith/apple_google.pdf

For the most part this will dox your residential IP when you let the phone on the WiFi. When an app uses an API from Google Play Services like location API, information may be sent to Google as well.

Google Play Services is used to send information about calls to Google:

And that would just massively crank up the pressure to crack TPMs. Or other parts of the system designed to verify them and transmit totals. It's not that technology for critical mass voting just hasn't been figured out yet, it's that we should never do that digitally at all.

I recently installed Win 10 with my new Alder Lake CPU and I seem to be having trouble installing one of my games.

It's eternally stuck at 1.0% no matter how long I leave it (left it for 25 min once). I tried turning off windows defender and running it in compatibility mode for Win 7 as well as in admin mode but still it gets stuck at the same point. On top of that, it doesn't seem to be be using any CPU power. I ran both process lasso and hwmonitor and both showed that my CPUs were basically idle with the occasional blip to max on 1 core but only for half a second.

I used the exact same files to install this game on my Win 7 PC just a week ago with 0 issues.

Any idea what might be blocking the setup from installing?

I'm now having this issue with multiple installers. They all were verified working before and they all freeze at some point during installation now.

I noticed that they seem to stop when attempting to unpack certain files.

I get this error when I forcibly stop the install by going through task manager. It only shows up for a second at most before the program shut downs.

As I said before, I know the archive is not corrupted and I even redownloaded it just in case.

It's not reliably possible, no. Devices in the real world can be hacked or modified in any number of ways. TPMs have been bypassed before, as have the secure enclaves in processors. But you also have to contend with userspace problems. Malware goes out, you press A, program on "unique" phone reports C. Even official updates can contain malware if you hit the right systems up the chain. This is all an issue on voting machines, way more than you would expect, but it gets way worse if you're trying to do shit on people's home gear.

For actual elections, everyone should put pen to paper, full stop. That's the only way you can fully audit the results when shit inevitably goes down.

Nah, TPM does not facilitate this, it simply stores certificates. You need a central issuer for trust to exist. Whether you store the issued certificate on TPM or a SIM card or a national identity document is an implementation detail.

>what the highest read speeds the e-reader itself could possibly facilitate are
How could this information help you in any way? The reader will be fast enough for the tasks it performs, which is usually much slower than the SD card maximum speed simply because the e-reader also has to process the read data.
So just buy an SD card and be done with it. Write speeds are the pain point of SD cards, hence their classification into various tiers (Class x, Vy, Uz, An).

The VM can create a certificate but it would not be trusted. Each device has only one root of trust, the Endorsement Key. Your EK is a key pair of a public and a private key. It is stored in the TPM and the private key can never be extracted (this is the design of the TPM module). There is also a signature stored in the TPM. The public key would be sent to the service you are authenticating on. They will use it to encrypt a secret which can only be decrypted with the private key of your EK. So if you can tell them the secret, it means you have used the private key of the EK key pair, which in case of TPM means you have access to the TPM. If you steal someone's public EK, you can try to authenticate, however when the web service sends you the encrypted secret, you would be unable to decrypt it (since you are missing the private EK of that person), so they will not authenticate you.

If you create your own EK, you could send the public EK to the service and they could encrypt a secret, send it to you, you could decrypt it and tell them the secret. However, the service will only accept trusted public Endorsement Keys. One way would be to check on the server of the manufacturer if the public EK you sent is known to them. But the TPM system does not require looking up the value each time. It uses signing.

The public keys of manufacturers used for signing are known: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trusted_Platform_Module#Endorsement_keys The web service only needs to download these public keys used in signing once. Your public EK was signed by the manufacturer. For example, your public EK was read by the manufacturer during production, he calculated its hash and has then used his private key to create an encrypted string of it, and this is the signature.
>>
>>87467671
When you authenticate on the web service, you are sending him your public EK and you are also sending him your key's signature, which is saved in your TPM together with the Endorsement Key. The web service will take the signature you provided, decrypt it with the public key of the manufacturer, and this will output the value the manufacturer has encrypted. To confirm the public EK, the web service will himself hash the public EK you sent him. If the hash he calculates and the decrypted signature are the same value, the public EK is trusted.

When you make your own key pair, the public EK you created will have a hash no one else has. You can not create a valid signature for this. When you give a random signature with the fake public EK, the web service will use the manufacturer's public key to decrypt the signature, and it will have a value different from the hash of the public EK. So it is not trusted. You can not use the manufacturer's public key in reverse to figure out what the signature needs to be for your fake key's hash. The only way to trick this system is when you have control of another computer. Then you can let this computer do the authentication for you. But when you are disconnected from the computer, you can no longer use his key for authentication. And you can't generate valid keys yourself.

Got a new laptop. It works fine except for the touchpad. If my hands are even slightly "dirty", it won't register inputs properly.

Now, I know this sounds like I'm just some slob treating this laptop like shit but I swear that's not the case. I'm not eating hotpockets and trying to use the laptop. Here, even if my hand is slightly sweaty due to the warmth, my touchpad will have issues.
These issues stop momentarily if I disable and reenable the touchpad, which made me think it was a software thing, but after cleaning the touchpad with a damp cloth,it got much better for a day or so before becoming worse again.

If you never want to buy a dedicated graphic card and can deal with the iGPU, maybe. Otherwise do what other Anons said. 5500 is literally 5600G with iGPU removed and it's not worth it because it's gimped with tiny cache.
>How's this PCIE stuff work exactly?
PCIe is backwards compatible. CPU that supports PCIe 3.0 but not 4.0 can run 4.0 devices, but limited to the speed of 3.0. It's not a big problem with modern GPUs other than RX 6500 XT and 6400, but you may as well get something with support for PCIe 4.0 because 5600G/5500 sucks for another reason mentioned above.

What's the cause of something like this? I know for certain my dad wouldn't know how to uninstall an OS and he only uses it for general browsing (boomer sites, you know the type) so I don't know how this has happened.

>it should be 10 mbps

Are you sure? They don't always give you the minimum speed you'll get, they'll tell you the maximum because it looks better in advertising. Like
>(up to) 10mbps
Looks better than
>(at least) 4mbps
Because people only look at how big the numbers are. So if they advertise it as up to 10mbps and you complain you're only getting 4mbps, all they say is
>Nuh uh, we said UP TO 10mbps
It happened to me when I was much younger. Stores do a similar thing where it'll have something like
>up to 75% off!
Then when you go in there's some piece of shit no one wants for 75% off and everything else is reduced by like 5%. The 75% off is just to get you in the store. As long as at least one item is 75% off they aren't falsely advertising. They even have TVs or things you might want at 75% off in the poster or whatever, but as long as that piece of shit no one wants is on there too, they can claim the 75% off is for that piece of shit and it's your own fault if you think it was for the TVs or anything good (those things being 5% off).
Same sort of thing happens with internet speeds most of the time.
Having said that, some ISPs DO tell you the minimum you should be getting. Like my minimum should be 315mpbs, but I get 650mbps. Only because I'm in a good area for it.

tl;dr it's just to cover themselves unless they guarantee you a minimum speed.

Network cable tester question
I plugged a cable tester on one end of a cable, and the other end was connected to my switch. Apparently the 4th pin doesn't work on all ports of the switch because the led on the tester didn't turn on.

I'm wondering if the switch is actually faulty or if I used the tester the wrong way. When I plugged the cable directly into my router all the pins lit up on the tester.

Thing is the tester has two parts but I only used the sending device not the receiving one. Did I test it all wrong?

Hard to say. Try a different flash drive, and in a different port. If that doesn't work then try resetting the bios to factory defaults. If the bios isn't on its latest version, see if there's a way to update it directly.

Is that possible? w10 -> w8.1 One of drivers I need to install refuses to cooperate. Ubuntu has its own version of that driver but I'd be pretty pissed if I installed it and found it it just cased me more issues with the other expansion cards I had to get.
>>
>>87470746
Check the boot settings. Could be your OS has the highest priority.
>>
>>87470723
You use cable tester for cables, not routers or switches or whatever.
Put the sending device on the other end of the cable and the receiving on the other.
>>
>>87470902
I can only change the order for legacy which wont let me boot from usb. When I select UEFI my only option is windows boot manager. Holding shift and pressing restart does allow me to select boot from USB (no UEFI options beyond this) but I'll boot to win10 anyways.

the options are :

Kind of a double header here.

My other issue is related. I figured I'd update my graphics drivers to see if that helps anything. Instead, it gave me another problem.

In the past you could connect multiple computers to the same coax cable. When two send data at the same time, on the cable there is just noise. Only one packet can be sent at the same time. So the network cards will need to wait for some time before sending another packet to give the other participants a chance and they should check if there is already a transmission before starting to send on the cable.

each database is its own application with a CLI and drivers for languages to use. if you want to just get started with something like postgres you can just install it and use the console, or you can use an interface like HeidiSQL or BeekeeperStudio that give some extra tooling.
>I had something called Oracle Database Express Edition that my university gave me and I used that a lot for my projects but I lost the installer
oracle isn't that used in my experience. postgres, mssql, and mysql/mariadb are the big ones, you can find installers for each fairly easily (or learn Docker, it's useful for DB work). you can always just get the oracle installer again though, express is their free edition.
there's also SQLite, it's different from the rest in that it isn't a client-server, but it's pretty widely-used for standalone applications where the data is closely tied to one user.
>where are the jobs with SQL
basically everywhere. it's not an everyday activity, but it's useful knowledge. nobody will hire you just because you know how to use SQL, but there are an absolute fuckton of things that use SQL databases.

>From what I remember 'SQL' was quite simple and just about creating queries to get data from databases (although sometimes the queries were quite convoluted) while designing the databases was quite difficult
you remember right. sql isn't the hard part, the hard part is knowing what to do with it. database work is a ton of planning and plotting out tables and relations, sql is really just a tool to do that.
basic knowledge of selecting, deleting, inserting, and updating can be useful as a programmer, but learning the data model patterns and architecture is more for if you want to improve with databases personally; most jobs will be hiring database analysts and architects for that type of work.

Ah so in terms of databases and SQL I'm not exactly creating employment opportunities if I work on them unless I want to go into database analysis and architecture? I assume those jobs pay very well but are also very competitive and aren't really something for entry level programmers

Btw do those textbooks give you complete databases that you can test your queries on? I remember half of the trouble back then was just creating the databases with the data formatted correctly and in the right data structures just so I could test my query

>in terms of databases and SQL I'm not exactly creating employment opportunities if I work on them unless I want to go into database analysis and architecture
varies. knowing sql and databases is still important if you work on anything involving databases, but the "bigger picture" data models and patterns aren't super important since you'll usually just be adjusting and working on existing databases.
like you don't really have to know what a data mart, star schema, fact model, etc. is if you just want a programming job that has SQL as a requirement.
>Btw do those textbooks give you complete databases that you can test your queries on
Learning SQL walks you through step-by-step (it uses MySQL with a premade sample database), SQL Cookbook is just common queries for a variety of tasks.
The pattern books are more theory-based about how to model data and design databases, stuff that can be important if you ever do end up wanting to design your own DB for an application.

Ah hmm, probably the doesn't work since the page uses JavaScript to swap out the images or something like that.
You might be able to grab all the thumbnail URLs using Automator or such then do a string replace to change to the full size ones, depending on how the website stores them.
Ex. https://example.com/sm/image1.png -> https://example.com/lg/image1.png

A "Run JavaScript" with this script would do that, just change the replace as needed for the actual URL change, if it'd even work:
function run(input, parameters) {

input = input.map(r => r.replace(/sm/, "lg"));

return input;

>Is my ISP able to see the data I am sending and receiving when I use a website that uses HTTPS
no, the SSL encryption is between the end-points.
>What about If I use Tor
then they can't see where you're connecting, similar to a VPN.
>are they still able to see the content even if I use a website that uses HTTP
they can see HTTP, but if you use tor then it's encrypted, so no.
>What about if the third relay point somehow gets attacked
only if they're cooperating with or are the attacker.
>If yes are they able to connect said data with me
depends on the attack. some attacks only leak information, some can provide a direct identification, some require a slip-up where you give away potentially identifying info first.

in general, if you only care about your isp, then https and a vpn is all you need. even https and dns over https are enough to keep them from knowing what you're looking at.
>>
>>87479424
>Is my ISP able to see the data I am sending and receiving when I use a website that uses HTTPS?
No, they can see what domain you establish a connection to and how much data you are transferring/how long you are using the website. They can not see the contents of the pages or images, those are encrypted.

FAGMAN can see you are using the same IP address on your phone and computer, so there is a connection.

>What about If I use Tor, are they still able to see the content even if I use a website that uses HTTP?
No, Tor connection is encrypted. The exit node will however see all the contents when the website is HTTP.

>What about if the third relay point somehow gets attacked, will they then be able to see the data that I have been requested?
In the case of HTTP, yes. Many exit nodes are also run by hackers and will siphon off user passwords when you login to e.g. facebook.

>If yes are they able to connect said data with me?
Probably not: The exit nodes receive the requests from the middle node. They usually don't know where these requests came from originally. Be careful with javascript though, could allow tracking over longer time and connecting activity on Tor. Also sometimes a leak happens on Tor browser, false sense of security is dangerous.

If that is the case, I might rather just use the normal websites through a standard webbrowser, as they are already linked to my identity. A VPN is probably only really useful if I am going to use and unsecure public net.

>If I use Tor, are my ISP able to see the domain name of the website I am visiting?
Everything is encrypted with Tor. Unlike HTTPS which was developed mainly for security like online banking, Tor was always designed for privacy. However, Tor is slow, websites will be broken, the browser isn't even a full window and has dead space at the edges. Also some websites just ban it altogether. But you would find that out yourself if you try it.

There is no difference in performance but fewer cables is nice.
Cheap NVMe drives can be slower than SATA SSDs so make sure you read reviews, sometimes $5 extra buys you a significantly better drive, even if it's just a longer warranty.

Any recommendations for a router which needs to be able to support quite a few connections (streaming, security, door camera) on both ethernet and wifi but no need for absolute top speeds?
My house is not huge but it isn't small and currently the piece of shit router I have which the service provider gave is just not good enough anymore
Constantly dropping out, refusing to let anything connect to it for a day, weak signal, random slow speeds, etc
I'm sure I don't need an ultra l33t 'gaming' router but I'm not sure if the cheapest one would do for me?
I was looking at the D-Link DIR-2150 Wireless AC2100 Dual Band Router or TP-Link Archer AX1500 Wi-Fi 6 Triple-Core CPU Router
but I'm not sure if that's what I actually need and by looking I mean it's not the cheapest router nor is it the most expensive, I don't actually know what their specs are besides having 2.4 and 5 ghz

Btw do I need to care about how many streams it has?
When it says 4 streams does that mean it only supports 4 simultaneous connections?

It gets even weirder; I spun up a Win10 VM and the problem disappeared, I was able to post without a problem. From my initial tests, it seems the boards affected are mainly ones to do with Japanese culture (/a/, /vt/, /jp/, etc.), but without doing an extensive troubleshooting session by going to each and every board and shitting them up with a "test" post (which I really don't want to do) I cannot say for certain. I'm using Firefox both on the host and the VM without a user.js (looking into arkenfox.js but haven't implemented it yet) with identical settings from the "Settings" page and minimal addons (uBlock Origin, Flagfox and BloodyVikings)
