While doing some protocol design for front-end clients with WebThemis services, we wanted to try it in real-world situations first: how easily could we deploy complicated cryptographic behavior into web apps? Turns out, quite easily. This post describes one of such web apps, designed to illustrate some zero-server-trust design patterns we're using in other developments.

As we are still using LibreSSL as a donor for some of the cryptographic primitives, with every new architecture we have to make sure that LibreSSL compiles well. This post describes our challenges with PNaCl.

Themis Server is interactive debugging environment for Themis: an easy way to try what Themis can do, debug your working code, get easy-to-test examples (specifically cooked to talk to Themis Server).

This post outlines our experience of porting typical C/C++ library (which is obviously Themis, in our case) to PNaCl module. A few challenges, a number of interesting riddles and Themis suddenly has a new home!

After publishing Secure Comparator paper, we've received a number of concerns from the cryptographic community about possible security breach, in case, where one of the parties is intentionally falsifying the protocol. We've adressed these concerns, and, in this blog post and paper update would like to elaborate how and why.

Secure Comparator is a novel authentication technique we're proposing the cryptographic community to evaluate. It can be used as any id/secret pair authenticator in environments, where no trust relationships exist between two parties.

Current technological advancements in authenticating users seems to be sufficient for most cases. However, taking a more detailed look reveals weaknesses and tradeoffs in all existing authentication schemes. Before explaining the methodology and cryptography behind Secure Comparator, our authentication protocol, we wanted to outline reasons for developing it in a brief review of existing authentication methods.

Being asked several times 'Is Secure Session prone to attacks similar to WeakDH/LogJam', we've decided to outline some principal differences, which render Secure Session really secure from these attacks.
