First 'that is the point' relates to a different part of the discussion. The part where you are suggesting that peer review (I know, my words not yours) 'may present an unintended vulnerability', the point being that peer review should be used to identify potential vulnerabilities before they are discovered in the wild.
So back to my 'bald statement that there are no perfect systems'
, I actually disagreed with your claim that 'there are numerous ways of coming up with the perfect encryption system'
but that is just splitting hairs.
A cryptosystem (as I understand it) is the groups of cryptographic algorithms needed to implement a security service (such as file encryption). The minimum would be key generation, encryption and decryption.
As I said OTP has perfect secrecy, with only the cyphertext you will not be able to brute force it, however there is (as far as I'm aware) issue with a true random key generator, meaning that it would not be a perfect cryptosystem.
You could use the telephone book as a key but it would not be a true random key. You would just need to know 'Zimbabwe telephone book' to have the full key. A proper key for OPT would not be able to be recreated, you either have it or you don't.
If you want to complete systems - using a broader perspective - then OTP is even worse as handling the key becomes more of an issue.
If you want to look at OTP as narrowly as possible then, yes it is perfect but not very practical.
So now what do we have...
|I'm not saying to open it up to the world and that is why I referred to compartmentalization. |
Well I didn't say that you did say that. Compartmentalization is great. Keep the information restricted to persons or other entities who need to know. I just hope that if your are involved in designing cryptosystems your compartment is bigger than just you.
|Obviously you don't have experience in a secure environment because even peers could be a vulnerability. |
That's just a stupid assumption.
Not only is it a stupid assumption but you are again trying to imply that I said something that I didn't.
