SSB Log Entry 687
Pigeon Protocol Daily Update, May 22nd
Note to folks just tuning in: I do daily updates related to #pigeon-protocol - a project with similar goals to SSB.
The Ruby implementation now enforces "canonical ordering" rather than flexible ordering of header fields.
- Go back to writing documentation
- I might actually get rid of multihash along the lines of what Kas suggested. That is, implicitly support ED25519 and SHA256 as defaults. I will call them "the only option" in documentation rather than the defaults. I think that:
sha256 have stood the test of time long enough.
- We can easily add a
.whatever suffix later if we need to.
- It is also possible to configure the "world" that the feed lives to only use a certain signing / hashing algo.
- I'm pretty OK with a future where a security concern causes feeds to be manually migrated by authors (or left behind for eternity). I don't think this is avoidable, given the eternal nature of a feed- is it?
