Just to point out some documentation
on XDMCP has References and External links
Supposing you decide to go secure shell
is one of my favorites and includes the discussion of how a key
presupposes the existence of a padlock.
Understandability is a factor in deciding to use software, and XDMCP is
an interesting comparison with SSH.
Any password or passphrase is equivalent to a biometric, no more, no
less.** The Unix file of password hashes is the original paradigm for
this and it is hard to say modern keyring technology has superceded this
at all. Drop the passphrase in the hash and uniqueness is the result.
If investigative reporters are told "follow the money" keys are the clue
to a cryptographic scheme.
I've meddled around with object oriented crypto APIs (RC2) and they work
exactly as advertised - block oriented, IVs, padding, all the hoopla
always mentioned in the technical literature.
Perhaps at some point I'll apply for a public key the MIT site and start
road testing the public-key encryption APIs.
**in tactile terms fingerprint, chemical terms, aroma (leaving aside any
other properties). To me this is a solid ontology or logic.
