It’s Hard To Change The Keys To The Internet And It Involves Destroying HSM’s

Photo by Niko Soikkeli / Unsplash The root of the DNS tree has been using DNSSEC to protect the zone content since 2010. DNSSEC is simply a mechanism to provide cryptographic signatures alongside DNS records that can be validated, i.e. prove the answer is correct and has not been tampered with. To learn more about why DNSSEC is important, you can read our earlier blog post. Today, the root zone is signed with a 2048 bit RSA “Trust Anchor” key.…

Woodpeckers show signs of possible brain damage, but that might not be a bad thing — ScienceDaily

With woodpeckers, the answer’s in the question — true to their name, they peck wood. And when they do, they peck hard — with each peck, the bird undergoes a force of 1,200 to 1,400 g’s. By comparison, a measly force of 60-100 g’s can give a human a concussion. The fact that a woodpecker can undergo fourteen times that without getting hurt has led helmet makers model their designs around these birds’ skulls. However, a new study in PLOS…
