Hello, community Lunes.

Through the audio below, recorded by Lucas Cardeal, CEO and Founder of Lunes, we will explain the reasons why we had to adjust some processes important to the progress of the project.

https://soundcloud.com/user-415076634/lunes-platform-comunicado-1

If you don’t understand Portuguese, then please, skip the audio.

Summarizing the audio, we’ll post below the reasons why we made that decision and what will be adjusted.

Reasons:

- Code matching to facilitate acceptance by Google and Apple. It was 1 month trying to match the codes to Google standards, which period would be used to develop the other products and services that we would make available this month. The migration to the pattern below was decided for this problem to never recur.
- Adoption of PWA (Progressive Web Application), a new development standard used by market giants such as AirBnb and Netflix. It will allow us to align our Web Wallet and Mobile Wallet, allowing both to go hand-in-hand with upgrades, and that all products, services and currencies are available both on the Web and on Mobile, and also greatly improving the performance, resource consumption, and security of the applications.
- Scalability and stability of the applications.
- Change the identity of our site, leaving behind the tone of ICO, a site that looked for investors, to a site of a fintech that develops disruptive solutions through products and services that use blockchain. …

USDT is a cryptocurrency created in Bitcoin’s Blockchain through the Omni Layer Protocol. Each USDT is backed by the US Dollar from Tether Limited’s reserves. Just like any other crypto, you can send, receive, and store Tether. However, it is necessary that this wallet has the Omni Layer implemented and a BTC amount for the USDT to communicate through the Bitcoin blockchain.

The idea of ​​Tether is to be a stable criptocurrency that works just like dollar, a kind of digital dollar. …

This is the third and last article in the Cryptography series. Let’s teach the essentials of the technical part for the whole community to understand how it works.

Bad Password Hashing Functions

About everything else, in particular virtually every homemade method that people relentlessly invent.

For some reason, many developers insist on designing function themselves, and seem to assume that “secure cryptographic design” means “throw together every kind of cryptographic or non-cryptographic operation that can be thought of”. See this question for an example. The underlying principle seems to be that the sheer complexity of the resulting utterly tangled mess of instruction will befuddle attackers. In practice, though, the developer himself will be more confused by his own creation than the attacker.

Complexity is bad. Homemade is bad. New is bad. If you remember that, you’ll avoid 99% of problems related to password hashing, or cryptography, or even security in general. …

Good Password Hashing Functions

PBKDF2

PBKDF2 comes from PKCS#5. It is parameterized with an iteration count (an integer, at least 1, no upper limit), a salt (an arbitrary sequence of bytes, no constraint on length), a required output length (PBKDF2 can generate an output of configurable length), and an “underlying PRF”. In practice, PBKDF2 is always used with HMAC, which is itself a construction built over an underlying hash function. So when we say “PBKDF2 with SHA-1”, we actually mean “PBKDF2 with HMAC with SHA-1”.

Advantages of PBKDF2:

  • Has been specified for a long time, seems unscathed for now.
  • Is already implemented in various framework (e.g. …

Attention: This is a more thorough explanation of security with Hash encryption.

Theory

Password hash is always a secondary defense. A server that authenticates needs some information in order to validate a password. A simple system literally stores the passwords themselves, and validation in this case is a simple comparison of strings. In this case, if someone peers at the database file, you’ll see too much information. This kind of breach happens in practice. A backup in the wrong place, an HD swapped and not erased properly, a SQL injection, and so on. See a detailed discussion on this blog.

Even though the content of a server that validates passwords necessarily includes the data for this validation, someone who has a mere copy of them can make a dictionary attack offline, trying out potential passwords until some match, and this type of attack is inevitable . This way we can try to make this attack as difficult as possible, and for this we have these…
