Dont trust verify
Drupalcon amsterdam 2019: don’t trust, verify
Assume that extraterrestrials arrive on Earth with a new superfast SHA256 unit. Imagine this computer always providing them with more than 51% of the world’s current Bitcoin hash strength (but not enough hash power to completely break SHA256). Let’s say they decide to start with the Bitcoin Genesis block and create a chain that is longer than any other chain on the planet, with only empty blocks. Is it possible for them to delete all bitcoin transactions?
From now on, I’ll almost certainly include a checkpoint in each edition. There’s no point in leaving open the unwelcome non-zero chance of modification months later until the program has decided on what the generally accepted block chain is. – Satoshi in the year 2010
As a result, the Aliens using a superfast SHA256 would crash. The bitcoin core client enforces a collection of checkpoints by default. In reality, it appears that the person behind the Satoshi email in 2010 suggested that from now on, each version include a checkpoint.
Although some may argue that this isn’t a security function, it does essentially impose a consensus decision (by default) that allows all users working with the same codebase to consider this checkpoint and anything that came before it as final.

This is fantastic. Georg, I had no idea you had a pool! Maybe it’s brand new… Anyway, I’d almost certainly send you my delegation, at least for the time being, but Daedalus isn’t interested! Still I’ll keep trying…
Georg, for those who don’t know, has been a huge asset on Telegram for a long time. He’ll also make an outstanding operator due to his technical skills and experience. Please express your gratitude by delegating to LODL, his new tub!
Thanks to all of you, the #TRUE Pool has provided 25 Terabyte of stable #TOR internet traffic around the world in the last 30 days! Decentralization is essential. This is something you should do as well!

That’s perfect, but the expression is a little vague. It can mean different things to different cybersecurity vendors, with some completely distorting the definition to suit their own workflows. So, how does the real thing tend to be?
Many vendors advocate for zero-trust protection architectures, which are focused on the concept of not trusting users or data sources. Others advise against trusting any network traffic at all. This ensures that anything entering a network should be “checked,” regardless of where it came from or who it’s going to on the inside.
This is fair. Users, data sources, and network traffic can not be trusted, according to us. But what about the information? So, what about digital media? True zero-trust means finding a way to check without a shadow of a doubt that the material is indeed threat-free in a world where malware hidden within documents and photographs regularly eludes detection.
Red beard safety – trust but verify
The Russian proverb “trust, but check” (Russian: овер, но ровер, tr. Doveryay, no proveryay, IPA: [dvjrj no prvjrjj]) is a rhyming Russian proverb. After Suzanne Massie, an American scholar, taught it to President Ronald Reagan, who used it many times in the form of nuclear disarmament talks with the Soviet Union, the term became widely known in English.
Between 1984 and 1987, Suzanne Massie, an American academic, met with President Ronald Reagan several times.
 She taught him the Russian adage Doveryai, no proveryai (Russian: овер, но ровер; Trust, but verify), which means “trust, but verify.” “The Russians enjoy speaking in proverbs. It would be helpful if you knew a few. You’re an actress, so you’ll pick them up easily.”  Reagan made the proverb his signature expression, using it often while addressing US relations with the Soviet Union.  Using proverbs that the Russians may understand could or may not have aided the two leaders’ relations. [number four] (5)
