Interesting concept. Not sure what good it'd be other than to dick around for a bit, but it's neat.

Jaredlong t1_j1zldlp wrote

Yeah, create a long enough random string of letters for the note name and it'd act like a type of key encryption. security through obscurity

Edit: To make the literalist pedants happy.

I don’t think you understand encryption


SolensSvard t1_j1zrq8e wrote

If you fart hard enough into a speech to text, the phrase that comes out is encrypted. It's just science


The_Slad t1_j1zt4lv wrote

It literally says that every note is encrypted and the notes title acts as the key.

So the lock to the front door of your house is its address. Got it.


Jaredlong t1_j205b1q wrote

Jfc, I didn't mean it's literal actual encryption. In terms of the difficulty of someone unintentionally finding the note it's LIKE encryption because they'd need the specific key to find it.

Has your middle school English class not covered similes yet?


samehaircutfucks t1_j20bz14 wrote

That's not what encryption does. You're referring to security through obscurity. Encryption makes it so even if the note is found, it is unreadable by anyone other than those with the key to decrypt.

Writing in a made up language is closer to encryption than your example.

If you and a group made an unusual name, the group could collaborate on a document.

Maybe it was developed pre-Google Docs

Their repo is from 2019, whereas Google docs is from 2006.

It’s rather just a novel idea than a real collaboration tool.

I stumbled across client info and passwords for a Canadian networking company. I deleted everything. It was using a common, short word.


Elliot_Moose t1_j1z48w2 wrote

Did you inform the company?


AdriftAtLast t1_j1zhcxm wrote

I didn't want to really look at it too much. I think maybe an employee browsing reddit pasted the wrong info or something. It seemed partial or mistaken instead of some purposeful leak, especially given the passphrase to reach it.

That opens up a much wider list of use cases, and you KNOW which one it's gonna be. The Jordan-Gaetz kind of thing the FBI will be interested in.

You've made a blank slate wikipedia with an ability to also write a note to someone you share a code with. Added points for easy vandalism. I love it!

This is such a wonderful idea. It's a little iffy to me that the titles are case sensitive which just gives me FOMO :)

It's a good use of time and as long as it isn't overrun by bots I'm fine

I would love to see the backend database for something like this.


DankmirianChancellor t1_j1z0lk8 wrote

"database" could be a generous term here since the searches are based on the title alone. Could just be a list of titles and encrypted blobs to go with them.


_N0K0 t1_j1zhwz2 wrote

Pretty much any document database (mongoDB for example), the title is hashed and used as a key for a JSON blob

I like it. Makes me feel like I am 15 again and dialing into a BBS. Goes to show you can still stand up a simple, fun app with minimal code and backend.

bocks_of_rox t1_j1zfhuu wrote

What is the character limit on titles?


_N0K0 t1_j1zi1w9 wrote

Should not be one, since the title is hashed, which turns it to a set length of random characters in the background


OddScentedDoorknob t1_j1zkycw wrote

This is kind of fun. Are you the developer? When typing a note on a phone (Android), if the note gets long enough that the bottom is covered by the onscreen keyboard, there doesn't seem to be a way to scroll down to see what you're typing, so you just have to type blind with the text hidden by the keyboard.

EDIT: Actually now it works fine in Brave browser. Maybe it's only a problem in Reddit's internal browser? (using Relay Reddit app)

DankmirianChancellor t1_j1z0rox wrote

If the only thing you need to view the note is the title of the notes, how are they encrypted?

Nifty idea but I feel like the internet will ruin this pretty quickly.


koolman2 t1_j20ongn wrote

The title is hashed using SHA-256 and is stored as the hash only. The title is used to create the AES256 key, which is used to encrypt the note.

Without the title, you can't decrypt the note. Since the title isn't stored, you can't read any of it without inputting the correct title.
