DSA keys deprecating/ELIMINATING DSA keys in in openssl 7.0

https://security.stackexchange.com/questions/112802/why-openssh-deprecated-dsa-keys

You don’t have to take my word for it, but when I was begin developing NouveauPG years ago I found that, 1.) DSA is just hours of testing debugging, etc. with little return on invest. Don’t get this twised, this was never designed to make me a millionaire but I thought is was something that should exist. We’re only here for a short time and we really have to think beyond the fleeting riches which so many in the current tech industry base their self worth. Just sort of proud that I saw that coming years ago. 🙂

Apart from the due to the limited role of NouveauPG’s ‘eco-system’ it is safe for the secure transmission of text messages of any length across insecure medium. Social media etc. NouveauPG was written from the ground up and shares no code with the c. 1994 code-base. Apart from myself accessing this site via Tor which could be AWS nonsense, all is secure.

domain

For the time being, nouveaupg.info is the internet address. There are some very strange things happening with nouveaupg.com. I’m hoping to have everything back up ASAP, but for the meantime nouveaupg.info is the temporary address.

UPDATE: well this is weird, I can access nouveaupg.com via Tor, but not my home connection. I’m sure it’s nothing. I have more pressing matters, just thought this was interesting.

Well this is weird, I can access http://nouveaupg.com through Tor.

Anonymous activation finally arrives

I finally have the Bitcoin activation system up and running. Now if you want to purchase NouveauPG, you don’t need to go through the Mac App Store. The first time NouveauPG is run on a Mac, it generates a random UUID. When you provide a valid UUID to the activation page, you will be assigned a Bitcoin deposit address. When you deposit enough Bitcoin, a signature will be generated that can be copied and pasted into NouveauPG to unlock it. No network access is necessary.

1.01b update released

There was a defect in the last build that seemed to be causing problems for a few users. If you attempted to write to the local database while the program is on a read only medium (like the compressed disk image NouveauPG is distributed in) the write failed silently and users were left wondering why they could not import or create PGP key pairs.

As of version 1.01b, NouveauPG displays a dialog when a write fails and no longer gives any indication that the operation succeeded. Apparently this distribution method is confusing for some, but I have decided to stay with compressed disk images because it seems to be the standard (outside of the app store, of course). Although this method is more confusing, it has always been a goal of this project to produce an application bundle that can be shuffled between computers on removable media.

I have tried to illustrate the installation process below. I appreciate those that have provided feedback, I don’t think I would have found this bug on my own.
