    This is most excellent. Thanks for the heads up.

  2. All pastes are encrypted BY THE BROWSER using 256 bit AES encryption. This means there is no usable paste data stored on the server for the authorities or anyone else to seize

    But if you want your paste to be public the decryption key has to be public too, so the pastes can still be grepped by anybody with the key.

      If you do not broadcast the URL, it’s kept secret.
      Anyway, the point is not to protect the user, but the server admin.

    “256 bit AES!”

    I see your double long word, and raise you 3840.

    256 bit AES … well, by 2025 a childrens’ SpeakNSpell will crack it.

      Go back and reread your cryptography books.  256-bit AES, for symetric keys, is pretty bullet-proof.  You may not realize just how big a 128-bit number is, let alone 256-bit numbers.

      128 bits (all 1s) works out to 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,455, or 3.4E+38 in decimal. 
      Assuming brute-forcing works within trying 50% of the keys, and overwhelming computing power, etc, etc, it still takes billions of years to crack.  It’s pretty safe.

      256 bits is 115,792,089,237,316,195,423,570,985,008,687,907,853,269,984,665,640,564,039,457,584,007,913,129,639,935. 
      That number is of the order of the number of atoms in the visible universe.

      Imagine the time it takes to brute force that 128-bit key. Now, repeat that 3.4E+38 times in a row. That’s how long it’ll take to brute force the 256-bit key.

    One more sweet pasty utility:  I’ve been using it to serve up some anonymous webpages.  Fun stuff!

    I would trust this about as much as I trusted Anon-Linux.

    Woao… my little project on BoingBoing.  oO
    I feel a bit overwhelmed by the magnitude it has reached. All that for 700 lines of code.

    Thanks, Cory.
