Basic Access Control working!
After some massive hacking session yesterday, BAC is now working. I can now
establish an authenticated and encrypted session to my passport samples, and
read data off them.
Still remaining on the TODO list is: Passive Authentication, Active Authentication and a nice GUI frontend.
I have lots of netfilter and OpenEZX work pending, so it's unlikely that I'll continue with libmrtd during the next couple of days.
My flight to Bangalore was scrapped.
Northwest Airlines has been heavily advertising their
Seattle-Amsterdam-Bangalore flight, including special offers. And what do they
do two days before starting that flight? They postpone it indefinitely.
This is certainly the right thing to do if you want to piss off new customers.
There was only one reason for me to go for NWA: Because they have a direct
flight to Bangalore, with no stopover in Mumbai or Delhi. Now that reason has
vanished. And since there's now only four weeks before departure, there's even
no chance I could get some other direct ticket for a decent price.
I'm yet waiting with my travel agent getting back to me. Apparently NWA first
informs the press, and then slowly their customers at some later point.
