    Jewish censorship doesn't let you post the truth about jews?

    https://www.haaretz.com/jewish/.prem...iers-1.5254336

    Jews have most of the mass media in USA. They're killing innocent women and children in Palestine and even in Israel. There were 150 thousands of jews in Hitler's army. Jews were killing Polish people during and after WW2. It's all confirmed. UN, NSA, CIA and many other organizations and agencies are controlled by jews.

        Aside from one-time pads, no encryption method has been proven secure. This isn't very surprising because we don't know (provably) if one-way functions really exist, if P equals NP or not, or whether integer factorization is truly a hard problem. Even if you could prove those things, you still need some constructive insight into how things work, e.g. simply proving P = NP does not necessarily provide a way to solve NP problems quickly. So we rely on cryptoanalytical tests to get some peace of mind, rather than anything certain.

          While Google got the NSA-developed Speck into the Linux kernel on the basis of wanting to use Speck for file-system encryption on very low-end Android (Go) devices, last month they decided to abandon those plans and instead work out a new "HPolyC" algorithm for use on these bottom-tier devices due to all the concerns over Speck potentially being back-doored by the US National Security Agency...

          This is something really bad, how the code include backdoors if it's Open Source?

            Open source does not somehow magically make backdoors disappear. It only means that others can also look at the code, making the likelihood of getting caught of all kinds of foul play more likely. That is basically what is happening now. Keep in mind that this is not a some kind of trivial backdoor, but a potential mathematical weakness of a cryptographic algorithm.
