So what is NukeNote?
Nukenote is a pastebin-esque messaging system where the server has no knowledge of the message sent.

How does that work?
After inputting your message, your browser generates a 256-bit AES key.
It then encrypts the message in your browser and sends only the encrypted message (but not the key) to the server.
The server then sends back a link containing the message identifier, and your browser appends the key to the end of the URL, so whoever you send it to can read it.
At no point does the server receive unencrypted data or encryption keys.

Why AES?
To crack a message encrypted with a 256-bit AES key of the length we have specified would take a long time.

How long?
Bruce Schneier showed (via thermodynamics) that if you had perfect computational efficiency, you'd need the power of something like 40 trillion suns in order to crack one perfect 256-bit key.
That doesn't take into account how many gazillion years it would take to consume and apply that energy.
Bear in mind, our keys are not 'perfect' -- that in itself is impossible on standard hardware -- but it goes to show how much energy has to be used just to crack AES-256.

Now that you've just read that, here's why we've implemented it.
  • For Vendors and Members to communicate in a far more secure fashion than standard Email or PM for any reason.
  • For Members to contact staff 100% privately.
How do I use it?
  1. Type in the big white box, isn't it obvious?
  2. Select how long you want the message to last for.
  3. Or Click 'Nuke' and the recipient can only ever read it once.
  4. Click Send, this will generate your link and append your key.
  5. Copy that shit
  6. Send the link to whoever needs to receive it.

So I've read all this information, where is it?


Note that this feature is still in its testing phase.
Grats for getting this rolled out renton, good work, it's invaluable.

I'd like to think that, you ALL saw the

Hello, TemplarMusic.

Recycled jokes.

OK, just me?

Why does this only work for me on "old" browsers. I.e. IE. Not firefox/Mozilla?

Have you made the effort to listen to your subconscious today? 'Your sake' breakz are as amazing as line times or pin mins.

odd.. it's not working on either ff or chrome for me now..
I suspect Renton has a headache this morning!

So it's comparable with this I guess?

ah ballsing hell, it worked last night. and I havent touched it since.
Yes, it's comparable to privnote.

My bad, accidentally got all JS to load asynchronously sitewide, which fucked shit up for this. modified the page rule for nukenote and it works now

yes, except self-destruct on a single read is not mandatory (although recommended).
Nice work Renton. It seems to be working fine for me at the moment.

Another similar destructive message service is............

why use this over privnote?
