Happy Holidays and some interesting links from the last exercise session
Hi all,
we wish you happy holidays and that you can relax and gather some energy for the next year!

Having some homework over the holidays is not ideal, I know, but we have to cover the topics to minimize the lag between lecture and exercise :confused:
I gave you the option to submit “delayed” solutions until 10th January 23:55, however we will see how that studon option will work in practise…
(I believe that for now, you just see the normal deadline, 7th January 00:00, but you will be able to submit between the 8th and the 10th)

In the last exercise session, I mentioned/showed some interesting links, here they are:

=> a very good stackexchange thread about hardcore predicates:
https://crypto.stackexchange.com/questions/1090/what-is-a-hard-core-predicate

=> a very enjoyable youtube channel devoted to pick physical locks, which shows us that weak security is still a problem in the “real” world: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm9K6rby98W8JigLoZOh6FQ/videos

=> a twitter thread that shows how horrific it is to debug complex software (an AAA-video game here) and how surrealistic the effects of such bugs can be, the pay-off, the last tweet of this thread is just fantastic: https://twitter.com/_taylorswope/status/1205252714680045568

Thanks for offering a delayed submission! Indeed, it worked just a few minutes ago. (You’ll see some bold red text saying “delayed submission” everywhere :D)
