 57 2016-07-12T04:12:05  <gmaxwell> yet again you have another negligently wrong security analysis, where you report 50% as absolutely safe, when in fact it's a guarenteed failure (assuming dedicated attackers)
 58 2016-07-12T04:16:25  *** luke-jr has joined #bitcoin-core-dev
 59 2016-07-12T04:16:43  <dgenr8> indeed, a 51% attack is a far greater threat than a blocktime slowdown, you get it
 60 2016-07-12T04:18:42  <gmaxwell> what? your analysis is just obviously broken on its face.
 61 2016-07-12T04:19:11  <gmaxwell> it claims that 80% dishonest mining is unable to slew the time.
 62 2016-07-12T04:20:05  <gmaxwell> This is obviously untrue, so you've make some obvious mistake-- if you have any result that isn't 100% at 50% hashpower.
 63 2016-07-12T04:23:16  <gmaxwell> And, what the heck is  "a 51% attack" -- Bitcoin exists as a confluence of incentives, one part of it is that even a user who buys up large amounts of hashpower for a brief period only gains the ability to reorganize recent transactions, which is difficult to profitably exploit at any scale-- which users can protect themselves from by waiting for additional confirmations.  Under the security mod

 65 2016-07-12T04:25:36  <gmaxwell> (re obviously didn't understand, I'm referring to your prior claim that 100% hashpower and control over the user's clock was needed.)
 66 2016-07-12T04:26:31  <dgenr8> you read that statement completely wrong
 67 2016-07-12T04:28:53  <gmaxwell> K. Did I misunderstand that this was shipped out in XT without a release note pointing out the security model change; to a user community that obsesses over even minor softforks as taking away validation?
 68 2016-07-12T04:34:09  <gmaxwell> am I misreading your graph showing that a miner with 79% hashpower has a non-unity probablity of success at moving the timestamp back?
 69 2016-07-12T04:34:59  <dgenr8> XT, unlike core, would warn loudly as that 51% attack slowed the generation rate
 70 2016-07-12T04:35:26  <gmaxwell> Did I miss the fact that this whole design is just an insecure rip off of the proposal from this channel to use 30 days of _work_ at the current tip, as a gate on signature checks?
 71 2016-07-12T04:36:31  <gmaxwell> dgenr8: there is no need for the generation rate to slow significantly enough to trigger any warning that doesn't false positive constantly.

 73 2016-07-12T04:41:37  <dgenr8> the reason XT exists is that a few people cannot abide the choices you are making. it's too bad. for a while, folks worked together pretty well.
 74 2016-07-12T04:41:48  <dgenr8> you view the loss of talented people like gavin, jgarzik, and hearn as positve, and seek to utterly discredit others. but i'm OT
 75 2016-07-12T04:42:10  <gmaxwell> dgenr8: You are going to get some people robbed blind with this kind of sloppyness; it's a risk to our entire industry.
 76 2016-07-12T04:45:42  <gmaxwell> I don't have to do anything to discredit you (not to mention other people)-- you do so _yourself_; by shipping software to users that you don't even understand and being continually antagonistic to people who would otherwise help you avoid danger.
 77 2016-07-12T04:47:10  <dgenr8> Perhaps try again to manipulate the timestamp on testnet. Any hashing that sets timestamps correctly has a huge advantage though.
 78 2016-07-12T04:47:35  <gmaxwell> dgenr8: you didn't even notice the successful attack on testnet against classic then, I guess.

 80 2016-07-12T04:49:17  <gmaxwell> A few days ago you seemed to be arguing that using the _miner provided_ timestamps on blocks to decide to bother validating the block or not would require 100% hashpower and control of the users local clock to exploit-- functionality you added without even adding a _release note_ to Bitcoin XT.  Your response to this being pointed out was to again repeat accusations that I backdoored your softwa
 81 2016-07-12T04:49:23  <gmaxwell> re. After having your mistaken understanding thrust on you; you've gone away and come back with another obviously broken misunderstanding; again radically overstating the security of this 'optimization'.
 82 2016-07-12T04:50:06  <gmaxwell> The only reason I even knew that XT and classic had incorporated this ill advised security change is because of people bragging about how much faster it synced. Yea, it's faster when you don't check 95% of the signautures, blindly...
 83 2016-07-12T04:51:05  <gmaxwell> So if you think you're going to make a war for node operation a war about who can make the most insecure software-- the stuff with the most tail risk of total failure, then hell yes I'm going to call that out. And you should be thankful that I've taken the concerns directly to you,  and not-- like other people in your community-- gone straight to the press with them.
 84 2016-07-12T04:51:36  <gmaxwell> (Especially when it's so easy to demonstrate the exploit on a live network)
 85 2016-07-12T04:53:15  <dgenr8> hmm. i think this whole display is for the benefit of third parties. anyhow i disagree on the degree of risk, but that's not to say the regular checkpoints couldn't come back or that the default selection could even change. but that belongs to a rational discussion we're not having
 86 2016-07-12T04:53:38  <gmaxwell> Fair enough.
 87 2016-07-12T04:55:23  <dgenr8> my concern with your thin blocks change was not that it made it to XT briefly.  it was that you removed the thin blocks functionality from core users.
 88 2016-07-12T04:56:36  <gmaxwell> I'm sorry for being such a dick on this. I do really think that the blockheader based skipping validation is a race to the bottom-- who can provide the worst security (for the fastest performance), to hell with the consequences (and no one adequately disclosing it).  It doesn't help that a much better way of doing the same thing was already proposed in Core; and to me it seems like pure NIH to i

 90 2016-07-12T04:58:35  <gmaxwell> dgenr8: I had no idea that it had any impact there, hell, the change was actually motivated by a complaint you made about the behavior (which, since you didn't disclose, I didn't know it was due to the prior limit of 1000 breaking mike's thinblocks). I didn't even initially use the bloom filter until wumpus and pieter beat me down on the memory usage.  And ultimately since there was _no_ reliabl

 93 2016-07-12T04:59:11  <gmaxwell> I also explained this previously, but you seem even more insistant on assuming bad faith on my part than I am on seeing you as a fool. :)
 94 2016-07-12T05:00:44  <gmaxwell> Seriously, if I wanted to 'backdoor' your software, the avenues available are far more profound-- your response has made me profoundly uncomfortable with the continued existance of Bitcoin XT-- you'll continue to copy code from Core, and when the inevitable errors that happen from interactions which I could never have anticiapted; you've shown that you'll accuse me of unethical or even criminal

 97 2016-07-12T05:03:35  <dgenr8> whoa slow down ... the map size problem I found had nothing to do with thin blocks, which is why i was eager to copy your fix for it
 98 2016-07-12T05:04:29  <gmaxwell> dgenr8: I thought (after trying to figure out why you even copied the change) the reason you commented on the map size is because with thinblocks the small map meant the far end had no idea that you had most of the transactions you already had, then sent redundant stuff.
 99 2016-07-12T05:04:51  <dgenr8> no, i found it while looking at some other core PR
100 2016-07-12T05:05:33  <gmaxwell> then why did you even assume I was trying to screw up your thinblocks stuff?  I don't believe I had _any_ idea XT was even screwing with that at that time.
101 2016-07-12T05:06:11  <gmaxwell> (I wouldn't have assumed it because the patch mike had was so obviously junk-- handling it in the ping handler, no way to cope with missing transactions except praying that they were still in the relay cache)

105 2016-07-12T05:07:27  <gmaxwell> in any case, indeed it broke the thin block stuff completely; then you merged it, and released a new version with it and the initial release of that thinblock stuff--- meaning you hadn't even tested it for basic functionality; which is basically terrifying from my perspective.
106 2016-07-12T05:07:41  <gmaxwell> You can't deny that the commit message was scream loud totally clear about _exactly_ what the change did.
107 2016-07-12T05:08:35  <gmaxwell> and so how the hell can I defend myself against bad testing on your part?  I made a very very clearly described change, which you didn't comment on, integrated so it broke your stuff totally, then claimed misconduct on my part. Thats seriously bad mojo.
108 2016-07-12T05:08:35  <dgenr8> it went to master, not a release.  please don't put 'backdoor' in quotes as I never said that word and as I said, that was not my concern

252 2016-07-12T14:27:01  <michagogo> Has anyone looked into packaging Bitcoin Core into a snap?
253 2016-07-12T14:27:11  <michagogo> (Ubuntu's new packaging format)
254 2016-07-12T14:27:16  *** murch has quit IRC
255 2016-07-12T14:28:24  <michagogo> I haven't gotten a chance to look at it closely (and I don't know if I'd really understand it), but it sounds like it's an Ubuntu-supported way for devs to package apps in self-contained packages that can update independently of the distro
256 2016-07-12T14:29:05  <michagogo> Which sounds like it would solve a lot of the problems we've had with Bitcoin being packaged in the Ubuntu repos
257 2016-07-12T14:29:38  <michagogo> (i.e. it _might_ let us sanely get Bitcoin Core into Ubuntu)
258 2016-07-12T14:29:54  <sipa> sounds interesting

283 2016-07-12T18:03:38  <xinxi> I've herd there is slack group for Bitcoin core dev. Who can tell me the URL?
284 2016-07-12T18:07:16  <btcdrak> xinxi: slack.bitcoincore.org
285 2016-07-12T18:07:31  <eragmus> xinxi: https://slack.bitcoincore.org -- However, it is not really focused on Core development. It's a general purpose community with nearly 2,000 members who discuss all manner of topics.
286 2016-07-12T18:07:34  <btcdrak> but it's more a community slack.
287 2016-07-12T18:07:53  <xinxi> thank you.

291 2016-07-12T18:20:00  <Chris_Stewart_5> Is there some weird semantics with TransactionMessage on the p2p network that are different than BlockMessage? Besides switching MsgBlock to MsgTx
292 2016-07-12T18:20:14  <Chris_Stewart_5> I keep getting a NotFound message response, when I know the tx exists
293 2016-07-12T18:20:34  <sipa> Chris_Stewart_5: you can't just request any transaction
294 2016-07-12T18:20:47  <sipa> only things that have been advertized to you
295 2016-07-12T18:21:29  <sipa> (reasons for this are 1) there is no full index for all transactions in the chain 2) there is a privacy leak if you allow peers to check whether you have seen a particular transaction already)
296 2016-07-12T18:22:52  *** adamg has quit IRC
297 2016-07-12T18:23:31  <Chris_Stewart_5> so what does -reindex allows you to easily search by header id then? And can you elaborate more on 2)? Does that allow them withold honest txs from you if you are being sybil attacked?
298 2016-07-12T18:24:13  <sipa> Chris_Stewart_5: the network tries to hide where a transaction originates
299 2016-07-12T18:24:36  <sipa> for that, transactions are relayed with random delays between them, and in different order for different peers
300 2016-07-12T18:25:07  <sipa> if i could query whether you have a transaction that i know about, but you haven't told me about, i can bypass that mechanism
301 2016-07-12T18:25:40  <sipa> Chris_Stewart_5: -reindex just throws away the database and builds a new one
302 2016-07-12T18:25:50  <Chris_Stewart_5> Sorry i meant -txindex
303 2016-07-12T18:25:57  <sipa> yes, that's for local consumption
304 2016-07-12T18:26:01  <sipa> not exposed to the network
305 2016-07-12T18:26:20  *** adamg has joined #bitcoin-core-dev
306 2016-07-12T18:26:55  <Chris_Stewart_5> Ok. So if I am understanding you correctly we allow arbitrary block querying because 1.) we need it to sync nodes on the network, 2.) You can't tell where a tx originates from once it is included in the block
307 2016-07-12T18:27:22  <Chris_Stewart_5> What file is the code in wrt to transaction propogation? main.cpp? net.cpp?
308 2016-07-12T18:27:27  <sipa> both
309 2016-07-12T18:32:14  <Chris_Stewart_5> sipa: Is this section in the developer reference wrong then? Under the heading 'Transaction response' https://bitcoin.org/en/developer-reference#tx
310 2016-07-12T18:32:46  <sipa> no
311 2016-07-12T18:32:46  <Chris_Stewart_5> I interpreted it as you build a getdata message, send it and then get a tx message response
312 2016-07-12T18:33:04  <sipa> it could be clarified
313 2016-07-12T18:33:23  <sipa> but it's not wrong that a tx is sent as response to getdata TX
314 2016-07-12T18:34:11  <sipa> but i agree it's a bit misleading
315 2016-07-12T18:34:30  <Chris_Stewart_5> sipa: With the caveat being that the node has already broadcasted the txid to that node requesting the tx with a getdata right?
316 2016-07-12T18:37:08  <sipa> or through the bip35 mempool command
317 2016-07-12T18:38:41  <Chris_Stewart_5> gotcha, thanks.
318 2016-07-12T18:40:13  <sipa> also, after relay, you only have a finite amount of time to getdata
319 2016-07-12T18:40:20  <sipa> i think 15 minutes by default
320 2016-07-12T18:42:08  <Chris_Stewart_5> Seems like that could have interesting consequences if the hash rate where to suddenly drop significantly. Tx propogation could stagnate couldn't it?
321 2016-07-12T18:42:29  <sipa> tx propagation has nothing to do with blocks
322 2016-07-12T18:46:21  <Chris_Stewart_5> True, I guess the scenario I was envisioning in my head would only happen if nodes were constantly being shut off and turned on at an alarming rate

354 2016-07-12T20:10:41  <bsm117532> I tried to create a spend of a P2WPKH transaction, with the signature and pubkey as the two elements in the witness data.  But signrawtransaction is giving me a txinwitness that contains a signature and a 65 byte-blob.  Is this second value an uncompressed pubkey or something?

356 2016-07-12T20:19:36  <bsm117532> Here's a decoding of a segwit spend generated by sendrawtransaction and one by me: https://www.zerobin.net/?9964fec796427a47#3Y2hZLaVTUV03Qx+vEG7i0NYtiDdhVAnM/BE5tEIXFI=
357 2016-07-12T20:20:06  <bsm117532> Can someone explain the difference in what sendrawtransaction is putting as the second element of the witness data?
358 2016-07-12T20:20:30  <sipa> yup, that looks like an uncompressed pubkey
359 2016-07-12T20:21:07  <bsm117532> Are uncompressed pubkeys required?  AFAICT that's the only difference between the two.
360 2016-07-12T20:21:15  <sipa> no
361 2016-07-12T20:21:32  <sipa> they're even discouraged and no modern bitcoin core wallet will use them by default
362 2016-07-12T20:21:57  <sipa> but if you have a very old wallet file or have imported uncompressed keys, there is no choice
363 2016-07-12T20:22:07  <sipa> *won't use them by default
364 2016-07-12T20:23:01  <bsm117532> Ok so if sendrawtransaction is using uncompressed pubkeys, it could be a bug, and if segwit script validation is rejecting compressed pubkeys, it could be a bug...I'll dig.
365 2016-07-12T20:23:21  <sipa> i can guarantee you that compressed pubkeys work
366 2016-07-12T20:23:35  <sipa> i suspect that you're just signing the incorrect signature hash
367 2016-07-12T20:24:04  <bsm117532> That's entirely possible.
368 2016-07-12T20:24:23  <sipa> (that's just from experience of other people seeing fail there)
369 2016-07-12T20:25:17  <bsm117532> Ok I'll dig there first.  But I'm also working on a wallet-functionality patch for core.  My node shouldn't be generating uncompressed pubkeys, though I do run --with-incompatible-bdb, other than that all keys should be new.
370 2016-07-12T20:25:36  <sipa> did you import keys, ever?

372 2016-07-12T20:28:38  <bsm117532> Hmmm...possibly.
373 2016-07-12T20:28:51  <bsm117532> Should I recreate my wallet then?
374 2016-07-12T20:29:10  <sipa> imported keys have a flag that says whether the corresponding pubkey is to compressed or not (otherwise the address is not well defined)
375 2016-07-12T20:29:20  <sipa> i wouldn't bother
376 2016-07-12T20:29:45  <bsm117532> Hmm maybe I just got unlucky with the chosen input.

380 2016-07-12T20:43:14  <sipa> nope
381 2016-07-12T20:43:56  <sipa> it's still more or less the same order of data, but all 'over all inputs' or 'over all outputs' things are first aggregated into an intermediary hash

385 2016-07-12T21:01:10  <bsm117532> In BIP 143, this line:   if (!(nHashType & SIGHASH_ANYONECANPAY) && (nHashType & 0x1f) != SIGHASH_SINGLE && (nHashType & 0x1f) != SIGHASH_NONE) {
386 2016-07-12T21:01:25  <bsm117532> Isn't it simpler to just say: if(nHashType | SIGHASH_ALL)  ?
387 2016-07-12T21:02:28  <bsm117532> errr.... if(nHashType & SIGHASH_ALL)
388 2016-07-12T21:04:23  <sipa> that would not be the same, i think?
389 2016-07-12T21:05:00  <bsm117532> I think it's the same unless there are more than 4 SIGHASH_* types
390 2016-07-12T21:07:53  <sipa> there are 6 combinations
391 2016-07-12T21:08:08  <sipa> but the sighash byte can have 256 values
392 2016-07-12T21:08:38  <sipa> all of which map to one of those 6 formulas

422 2016-07-12T22:24:17  <midnightmagic> sipa (or anyone really): When a node hears about a sibling block to its current valid head, it ignores it, correct? Or does it hold it until it discovers which fork the miners settle on?
423 2016-07-12T22:24:55  <midnightmagic> I thought it sits on it so long as it is also valid and does not represent less work than the current head?
424 2016-07-12T22:28:23  <bsm117532> midnightmagic: It's my understanding that it doesn't *relay* it, but does track its chain tip, in case its PoW becomes larger.

432 2016-07-12T22:59:27  <midnightmagic> sipa: can you give me an example of one of those edge cases? I don't need gritty details..
433 2016-07-12T23:00:21  <sipa> midnightmagic: not edge case; it's very intentional... for example, nodes connected to the (old) relay network would get blocks pushed directly to them
434 2016-07-12T23:00:27  <sipa> it would be silly to not accept those
435 2016-07-12T23:02:07  <midnightmagic> sipa: So an old-style block chatter is still accepted wholesale and validation proceeds (and then stored but still not considered canonical head until Y+1 indicates the fork has overtaken X.)
436 2016-07-12T23:02:48  <sipa> midnightmagic: well in almost all cases the new block is not a reorg
437 2016-07-12T23:02:55  <sipa> but we don't know that in advance
438 2016-07-12T23:03:01  <bsm117532> petertodd: I notice in python-bitcoinlib that CScript treats OP_0 as an empty data push b''.  It's used as the segwit version number.  Is there good reason to treat OP_0 as an empty data push over a small integer with value 0?

440 2016-07-12T23:03:31  <sipa> bsm117532: you can't change the semantics of the scripting language...
441 2016-07-12T23:03:41  <sipa> OP_0 by definition pushes the byte sequence ''
442 2016-07-12T23:03:46  <bsm117532> Is that changing the semantics?
443 2016-07-12T23:03:49  <sipa> yes
444 2016-07-12T23:04:02  <sipa> if you would compare it to the empty string later, it has to succeed
445 2016-07-12T23:04:08  <midnightmagic> sipa: Is the strict difficulty of the block hash now considered in terms of deciding validity of head? I know you guys were thinking of doing that instead of just the difficulty target of the block itself..
446 2016-07-12T23:04:21  <sipa> bsm117532: the script language stack only has one data type, byte array
447 2016-07-12T23:04:35  <sipa> some operators treat the elements as numbers, but that's not relevant
448 2016-07-12T23:05:14  <bsm117532> sipa: okay, I'm comparing to your bip141 which writes scriptPubKey as: 0 <20-byte-key-hash>, but obviously b'' <20-byte-key-hash> is equivalent.
449 2016-07-12T23:05:31  <sipa> no
450 2016-07-12T23:05:54  <sipa> it's OP_0 and then a 20-byte push
451 2016-07-12T23:06:08  <sipa> oh, that's what you mean
452 2016-07-12T23:06:21  <sipa> why can't you use OP_0 ?
453 2016-07-12T23:06:30  <bsm117532> Yes.  python-bitcoinlib treats it as an empty byte array push, followed by a 20-byte push.
454 2016-07-12T23:06:48  <sipa> that's correct
455 2016-07-12T23:06:58  <bsm117532> It doesn't give me OP_0.  It decodes OP_1...OP_16 but does not decode OP_0.
456 2016-07-12T23:07:26  <bsm117532> This is to do with the __iter__ method of CScript, which parses it.
457 2016-07-12T23:07:34  <sipa> that sounds like a bug
458 2016-07-12T23:07:41  <bsm117532> That's why I asked.  ;-)
