Using PyCrypto with Spring Crypto/Spring Security Default Encoders

Spring Crypto Encryptor Details The Spring Crypto module is amazing. Secure defaults using standard interfaces really make it a pleasure to use, and with it being full tested and vetted, it also gives a develoepr the warm fuzzy feelings of nice Java security implentation. The standard interface is through the  org.springframework.security.crypto.encrypt.Encryptors class, defined (in version 3.2.0 here (the class API to which this blog post was written in July 2016). Spring Crypto uses AES256 encryption behind the scenes in its out of the box class setup; it's as easy as: In the above code snippet, the password  variable is a passcode, with the salt  variable used to create the AES key. It uses 256 bit encryption with the standard calls (depending on your JRE/Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Setup, make sure to download the appropriate extension ). The default AESBytesEncryptor setup generates a 256 bit key (32 bytes) from a salted iteration done 1024 times. Another th

The thing that i like about audioscrobbler is the last.fm technology. it is like a combination of launch.yahoo.com with shoutcast. although, i dont completely understand it (see my comments in that other blog post about using technology that i dont 100% understand!), it is bad-to-the-ass.

to listen to the songs that i am listening to, and only me, then open up my last.fm profile http://www.last.fm/user/tmarthal/ and click on the "personal radio button" [personal radio] and it will start a script to download a .m3u playlist file (that you can import into winamp) and then get streaming music delivered to your computer that I PICKED ... by listening to them myself!! Note that there is a way to pick songs and whole albums from a webinterface, but that is dumb and not along the lines of "listen to this because it is awesome".

i think that there might be some sort of trial period for publishing my radio station, my firefox plugins change and delete so much html content from browsed websites that i am not sure that i am viewing what you other people are viewing. we'll see if they ever shut it off.
