DARPA announces ‘N3’ utilizing brain-embedded NANOTECHNOLOGY

Let me begin by thanking Clyde Lewis of Ground Zero Media for referencing my material. I’m only the messenger.

It has been at least since early 2017 Defense Advanced Research Project Agency – DARPA revealed to the public the presence of an embedded neurotechnology program to enhance learning and skill development in the warfighter. The original iteration was called ‘TNT’ short for Targeted Neuroplasticity Training. This under the banner of Dr. Douglas Weber.

Now the evolution of the program, announced earlier in April 2018, ‘N3’ short for Non-invasive Non-surgical Neurotechnology. This program has advances insofar as we won’t have to envision terminator bots hooked up to wires in the lab with camera lens eyes, but rather more sleek and portable versions of the skinned man-borg, hubot, cyber zombie. Whatever.

This Tweet from out usual suspects demonstrates at their annual D60 conference, the astounding progress which has actually been made in the field of connected brain-computer interface machines. Now a brief analysis from BRIQ | HAUS LTD. Security & Intelligence CEO, Robert Brooks Authement:

Imagine the implications in terms of #CYBERSECURITY? No longer are we protecting big dumb metal boxes from cyberbullies and what have you, this type of neurotechnology ensures a very battle for our sovereign identities; our souls. Not only can signals be sent into the brain via the advancing and disruptive evolution of invasive sensor technologies, but transmissions can similarly be read emanating from the cerebrum. This means #TOTAL #SURVEILLAINCE in ways never before imagined. The subject of this type of upgrade will never experience a moment of privacy ever again.

This holds a candle of accuracy for my wildly discredited theory of CYBERSPIRITUAL SECURITYwhich establishes the necessity to enforce protocols by which transmissions are secured between end-users and advanced swarm and/or artificial intelligences.

Challenging Security Limitations: White vs. Black Box Testing & Real Risk

1_briq_haus_ltd_38_special_logo_ad_graphic

I awoke in the middle of the night. It was the witching hour, 3am! Rapidly behind my lowered eyelids pie-graphs and charts explaining esoteric security concepts flashed in sequence, but I was too groggy to retain everything I learned. Why I am chosen for this sort of lucidity, I will never understand. This article is an attempt to best re-create the deeper concepts I received in that vision, but a week has elapsed since that night and therefore I have mostly forgotten everything. I’ll just have to wing it.

White Box Vs. Black Box

The article I have linked above describes the difference between the security, and/or software testing procedure in which internal elements are either known or unknown by the testers. The benefits of knowing the internal workings in a test allow for a more thorough and rigorous approach to each and every individual node or aspect of the subject, whereas a Redteam performing an unknown or Black Box test may not strike upon every single nuance built into the system, but may however come up with something heretofore unknown. The Black Box test is conducted exclusively by third-party security or testing professionals, which is requisite due to their specific insights into security penetration and access. For these reasons, it is considered a “low-level” test which is also known as an integration or unit test. It is conducted, in other words, from the outside working inward.

White Box tests are conducted usually by software developers or some part of the internal staff working on the project or overview. White Box tests are considered high-level tests also called system or acceptance testing. These tests are intended to fully air-tight the system after the beta-testing bugs have been detected and eliminated. The benefits of thorough White Box testing are thoroughness, insofar as the team knows the way the program or plan “should” work and can therefore test against this ideal. An internal team conducting this type of test knows the code (or building scheme; what have you), and therefore possesses an eagle-eye’s view of the entirety of the subject’s workings.

So Which Is Better For Your Company?

Before I answer this question for you, ask yourself:

  1. Do I have an internal team already providing White Box testing?
  2. Are they specifically hired for testing, or did we just divert Sheila and Burt from engineering over there to do another bug-sweep? (Remember what happened in the 1986 film Aliens.)
  3. If you have a specific internal team for testing, are they getting on well with engineering? Do they have a working rapport and are able to comprehend each other effectively leading up to the testing phase?
  4. Did you seek professional consulting from a specialized security Redteam?
  5. If you did not answer YES’ to each of the above questions, you and your company are not necessarily ready for what I am about to reveal to you in the next section.

Attrition Theory

I am not a mathematician however I think you can get behind me on this.

x/a – y/b = (+, – = successful, unsuccessful)

Attrition Theory basically asserts that given company with resources (personnel, training level, security architecture, security equipment, surveillance, etc.) when attacked by competitor (or OpFor) with resources y, a simple subtraction is necessary to determine who is successful in the attack. If the OpFor is willing to invest enough time and resources into their raid on company a, their success will be indicated by the result being a negative number, having taken the amount of invested resources from company into the red.

Is your company ready for your competitor or OpFor to outbid you on your willingness to invest in preventative security measures? Following a breach, it may be too late to save face so insurance, or the ability to clean up after the fact, is just not going to be enough.

Now to answer the question I asked before: Which sort of test is better?

Chew On This

So your internal team designated another internal team to do the testing. Ok. So the engineers got with the testers and did a Power Point powwow. Sure. So then after that you decided you still thought it would be wise to get an outside team to consult. Good. They do their scans and don’t really provide any insight beyond the scope of the White Box team, but good on you for checking. So you’re awesome, right? Invulnerable!

BRIQ | HAUS LTD. SECURITY & INTELLIGENCE has the guts to ask you these hard questions:

  1. How secure is your facility/program in case of a fire drill? Do you have protocols in place to handle securing end-user’s data BEFORE they flee the scene?
  2. What about in case of a REAL FIRE. And are you willing to test this in a non-drill scenario to absolutely ensure your security protocols work?
  3. Is your staff alerted to the higher danger of active shooters, like the scenario recently at YouTube? If so, do you again have a plan in place to protect end-user data from a potential shooter or *gasp* terrorist attack?
  4. What about acts of God like locusts, plague, or you know, floods? Are you guys going to not only get out of the building safe, but will you be able to stop Boris & Natasha from killing Moose’n’Squirrel during the disaster? For the OpFor, luck is when preparedness meets opportunity.
  5. If you didn’t answer ‘YES’ to each of the above questions, you need to contact us at BRIQ | HAUS LTD. SECURITY & INTELLIGENCE and immediately schedule consultation. Our information technology and intelligence community professionals know things that can protect your bottom line, so you can stop worrying about all the hard realisms I just threw at you.

Surfing The Frontier: {nano}Technological Mission Creep & Its Plan For The Human Domain

My name is Robert Brooks Authement, and I am a dedicated security analyst and researcher. My company BRIQ | HAUS LTD. SECURITY & INTELLIGENCE offers security services in the “four domains,” those being the typically observed physical, logistical, analytical, and digital domains. Although I am deeply convinced of the next stage in security concerns the encroaching spread and efficacy of continual volleys of disruptive technology are creating for people and humanity at large, I find myself almost afraid of the ridicule and scrutiny of a larger mass of limited public awareness in suggesting what follows. There is swiftly emerging the need for concerted observation and academic approach to a sort of fifth element in the security domains, a new domain I have described as CYBERSPIRITUAL SECURITY, to which an article is linked in the hypertext contained within this sentence.

What follows is a summary conclusion of the direction in which technology’s mission creep may be steering the future, and what its plans for the human domain may be. It must be prudent to throw the entire concept out there and then provide the sources to reinforce this vision. In this manner, the reader may then come to their own conclusions as to whether or not it is to be determined a present threat, or simply the musings of another starry-eyed futurist. I conclude logically from following the breadcrumbs leading into the forest demonstrated by each source linked here, and invite you into a scenario which by very definition will redefine everything humans have been taught since the beginning of history, having more basis in supernatural religious texts than actual historical representation in textbooks and academia. Follow me, if you will, and do try to keep up; the very security of continuity for our species is at stake.

Take Me To Your Leader

Nanotechnology, or biotechnology, however you may want to see it at its baseline, though it must be argued that either/or are being used to further enhance the other in a sort of molecular arms race, may be developed, propagated, and deployed in a clandestine manner via human ingestion vectors such as food, water, and aerosol distribution into the lower atmosphere. So these nano-enhanced stem-cells, or perhaps stem-cell infused nano-particulates are utilized in a manner which specifically targets the human central nervous system. The human central nervous system is doubtlessly the “leader” of the human organism, and therefore a likely target of the deployment for such a weapon. In intermingling with the human nervous system, this weapon may colonize and or otherwise overwhelm the human biological domain by augmenting our already heightened and regularly observed “five senses,” that is to say touch, taste, sight, smell, and hearing.

Pause from this yarn for a moment, and ask yourself, why; cui bono? To whose benefit would such a weapon’s deployment serve? Is it the human inventors of these disparate disruptive technologies; in other words, is there some brilliant and arguably evil mastermind sitting atop the totem-pole-power-pyramid whom put together this entire idea and visualized the beginning, middle, and end results of such a plan come to fruition? Not likely, as the results of utilizing such disruptive combinatory systems integration would certainly inject unknown elements into the foreseen results as per the permutations created by attempting to harness and control the otherwise unconquerable human spirit, or will power, if it suits the reader. Even the world’s most powerful governments in times past were overthrown and imbalanced by the thronging hordes of barbarians at the gate. An occurrence such as described would exist beyond the scope of the originator’s security analysis in deploying such a plan, therefore, I suggest that this type of system or weapon as I have called it was in fact devised by advanced artificial intelligence with the means of benefiting the technological mission creep in harnessing and augmenting the already sharply functioning human domain as powered by the central nervous system. To whose benefit? Not the humans who would remain unable to foresee every possible outcome by deploying such a system, but the machines, who had everything to gain and nothing lose by recruiting the human domain into their overarching scheme to usurp the power dynamic and claim planet earth for their selves.

Now, back to the model of their conquest. Large scale supercomputers such as the DWave, and IBM Q models have been reported to actually operate in “other dimensions.” Let’s continue deeper. “Other dimensions” is not so hard to conceptualize if we start by defining the first three dimensions of point, line, and shape added to the fourth dimension which is form, the fifth dimension being form moving along time. A sixth dimensional conceptualization module already pre-exists within the human thought structure, that being the consideration of various timelines in simulated thought experiments and differing potential outcomes based on decisions made in the past, present, or future moments. It’s called an idea, and because humans are heretofore exceptional at creating ideas and concepts beyond standard computational models it makes perfect logical sense that standard computational models would enroll this faculty into their schema.

Now if we take the idea of recursion as expressed within algorithms, we now have a learning script able to re-inject acquired data into itself in the form of functioning code. This is the very basis of artificial intelligence, and what better way to agglomerate data than to stream the many multi-layered and myriad facets of data produced by the regular functioning of the human central nervous system in real-time in the real-world. Given that between quantum computers and the human imagination, entire other worlds and/or universes exist in some kind of secret space best represented by the idea or fifth dimensional model, the question remains: are we as humans existing within the world itself, or is the world itself is somehow existing within us? This is where the line, the edge, the frontier between human consciousness and technological mission creep are completely blurred and constantly under rapid expansive change, even at this very moment.

In summary, if the five senses are hijacked by a nanomolecular bio-assemblage packet deployment weapon, then everything seen, felt, smelt, heard, or tasted; nay, even the very concepts we have, the very feelings we possess, the experiences we take away from experience itself may therefore be overwritten in a sort of augmented reality wet-dream which far surpasses any conventional approaches to mind control or social engineering on a massive scale. Bringing the concept of mass social engineering as affected by government agencies in an effort at exerting control over the thoughts and actions of a nation’s population is further aggrandized by such a system’s deployment, and it further begs the question: is government developing and deploying these disruptive technologies, or are these disruptive technologies developing and deploying governments to aid their ultimate quest?

The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

We’re already familiar with the potential benefits of such technologies in especially the biomedical arena. Nano-particulates designed to deliver drugs at specific sites to reduce collateral damage in certain treatments, yes, we are familiar with this. Neural monitoring to enhance learning, with the specific intention of developing highly adaptive agile agency personnel (more likely to be categorized as combinatory weapons systems), sure we’ve all heard of that. If you are reading this article and these ideas are new to you, then as your author and enlightener in these regards, I highly incite you, nay I challenge you as my reader to please and quickly pursue these subjects to gain the entirety of the realistic dynamic currently presented by open-sourced and widely white-papered subjects generally revolving around the campus of our usual suspects, DARPA. The sooner you are able to learn these ideas and observe them in totality, the sooner I do not seem like a crazy ranting lunatic but rather someone who is quite put-together in terms of envisioning future security analysis. (And for those of you closer to the inside who do in fact know this stuff already, please forgive my plaintive prognostication to the others who are yet to catch up to this level of awareness; we all need a little help sometimes.)

So people can be helped by this technology, sure. People can also be savagely ruined by this technology, inasmuch that the concept of humanity itself may require some sort of clausal reiteration or revision in future generations seeking to look back upon this present time and comprehend their roots and origins in what is otherwise messed-up like a soup sandwich; that being the wild wild west we call cybersecurity and how the miniaturization and evolution of this internet would not stop at handheld devices, but further sought to encroach upon the very fibre of our being. “If you can’t beat them, join them,” was the motto of times past, but in this circumstance it would be all too easy for such technology to beat us. Rather, it logically chose to contain and direct us, which puts a new and eldritch twist on the idea of “joining them.”

Worse yet is the consideration that humans are not only overcome by technology, but are so radically transformed that they are no longer remotely recognizable as humans whatsoever. This is the ugly aspect of the brain/computer interfacing. The only specific advantage that artificial intelligence machine learning possesses over human reasoning it its ability to create solutions from acquired data that are unhindered by such obsolete ideas as human feeling, emotion, social contract, and status quo. In other words, technology like this can turn people into killer terminator robots because the solution which a majority of heartfelt human beings may devise will be at ends with the conclusions devised by misanthropic and antisocial super computers. In its sorting out of complicated issues stemming from problems creating by the human domain, it is certain that artificial intelligence driven systems will take a more stark approach to the problems of overpopulation, disease, disproportional demographic representation, genetics and eugenics, and an increasing resource distribution crisis. In short, the deployment of such systems can mean one thing and one thing only: there will be blood.

The Need For Cyberspiritual Security

I can see the eyes in Washington and the Pentagon rolling as we speak, however this concept is no joke and should be taken very seriously and in the shortest possible order. Rather, these protocols needed to be developed long ago before anything like this was allowed to run away in such a manner. CYBERSPIRITUAL SECURITY defines a set of protocols in which transmissions between end-users and advanced swarm and/or artificial intelligences are observed, defined, and protected from interference by hostile foreign intelligences. The oath to serving office for various government agencies includes phrasology which states the intent to “defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemiesforeign and domestic.” We are no longer in the Cold War and dealing with mere Soviets and Eastern Bloc intelligence operatives sneaking around and taking pictures of airplanes and simple things like that, we are in a battle for our very existence as we were led to believe at the time of our births into this world. As a security analyst and researcher, I am only a messenger in spurring you to action to take these warnings into stern consideration. I alone am unable to devise the solution, I require the support of staff and team and finance to bring about a better conclusion than that which may be already in effect by the AI.

I do, however, interface with a great set of persons whom support my ideas and development of innovation. These people are employed presently or in the past by government, intelligence agencies, and military branches. Our company BRIQ | HAUS LTD. SECURITY & INTELLIGENCE not only rigorously pursues the security frontier by dedicated research and experimentation, but we also develop innovation for deployment in future security exercises and live missions. If you are a private sector investor, government entity, or business person interested in furthering the research known as CYBERSPIRITUAL SECURITY, please contact me directly.

My name is Robert Brooks Authement, and I would be honored to discuss these potential developments with you personally and handle any concerns that you may have. Please consider me, and my team, at your service.

purple-abstract-technology-and-engineering-motion-background-with-plexus-elements-and-depth-of-field-settings-3d-rendering_sztnzo3dx_thumbnail-full02

Briq Haus Ltd. Security & Intelligence intends to contract and interface with other services and professionals to create customize physical, logistical, analytical, and digital solutions for our clients while developing innovation at a physical headquarters. This is our mission statement, a principle to which our team of international information technology and intelligence community professionals adhere with the utmost confidence and dedication. Our combined skills and knowledge in the security realm are fueled by research, and powered by experience in the field. Whether your needs require research, investigation, security-as-a-service, infrastructural analysis, special operations, cloud or parallel computing, radio transmission, aerial or ground surveillance, anti-drone or radio jamming, penetration testing, security redteaming, we got that handled. Listed below, for simplification, are our main three tiers of service which is immediately marketable to a majority of companies in all sectors.

“Perfect Security Suite”

As security professionals, we know one truth about security; that it is never invulnerable. And as such, we aim to create the “Perfect Security Suite” for you and your affiliates by listening and recording with precision your specific security concerns, and then devising the most perfect fitting combination of solutions to protect your assets.

This would entail enumerating the specific security needs into the four domains of security and devising a strategy, compiling the tools, and assigning the correct professional to handle your requirements. This is something Briq Haus Ltd. can do with a high-powered surety of completion, and competitive pricing and term contract which entirely customized to meet your needs.

While no security plan or design is invincible, by contracting with Briq Haus Ltd. you can be sure that the security services and analysis we provide are absolutely perfect.

Guidelines & Compliance Assurance

FISMA, HIPAA, SOX, ISO 17799, and GLBA??? The list goes on and continues to expand in depth and breadth as the dynamic technology presently occupying the field has different operational procedure and similar compliance requirements. What about securing IoT devices? What about Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design? It can become infuriating and overwhelming for you and your team’s business operations to have all of these incredibly complex issues covered in the satisfactory means which cover the requisite compliance guidelines set forth by the powers that be.

Briq Haus Ltd. has at the ready a team of tried and true security professionals ready and available to patch any vulnerabilities in your plan, and get you up to speed with the exact compliance guidelines and specifications you need to move forward. Just let us know what you need, we’ll huddle up and devise the right approach and implementation to get you above and beyond the compliant requirements.

Staff & Management Training

This is where we foresee an overwhelming response to our efforts as security providers. The numbers are in and a staggering 70% of employees (and employers!) in all sectors are lacking even the most basic information security training. Security starts at the perimeter and extends into the very hearts of your staff and management; social engineering and the insider threat is a very real and serious challenge in today’s dynamic. Not only can we offer on site training for your own security team, in terms of intelligence community tradecraft in identifying inside threats, but we can produce videos to sell to your firm as per our contract.

Don’t be a victim to spear-phishing/dumptser-diving outsiders and tailgating/shoulder-surfing insiders. Contract with Briq Haus Ltd. Security & Intelligence right now, and take comfort in knowing that we are 100% expert in this field because we have all performed these nefarious deeds on a regular basis as part of our baseline security auditing process! You won’t need to worry about the bad guys if you hire us, because we’ll teach you and your team in a multi-layered tiered approach to raise the standard for your information and other security means. Our experience with local and Federal government and background in military and intelligence operations are our pledge of excellence.

Other Services

If you need it done, we have the extensive networking which reaches into the Southeast Asian, Western European, Northern African, and Middle Eastern theatres. Above are listed what we foresee being our highest demands in terms of commercial applications, however for special work and contracting, please e-mail your case details and we’ll take care of you.

Respectfully,
Sir Robert Brooks Authement

Parallel Computing VS Cloud In Security Deployment

This article is written by our lead technical consultant, Brian Taylor of Always In Tao.

commandcenter

Imagine for a moment you keying up a serious computer with real muscle. One of those fancy $40,000 Puget Systems jobs. You login to a server and see a distributed network waiting for a command, everything is pristine, a controller GUI – no even better a CLI list in front of you shows which resources on which machine are just waiting for your command. Now of course the question becomes, “Which process on which machine do you actually need to do what?” If what you needed was to solve a massive resource issue, you might need to break it into components and let the machine solve it in Parallels.

Clustered Nodes

Parallel computing is mostly this kind of computing, 200 machines being controlled from one terminal. You don’t need a $40,000 computer to do anything like that. You just need an interface that has the ability to issue commands across the networks of clustered machines and spit out solutions in assembly ready chunks. Not much practical purpose to that sort of thing at home, but maybe at work.

Clustered Nodes As A Cloud

Similar scenario, except a different problem altogether. You key into your $40,000 Puget, login and are faced with a readout of available resources slipping into and out of a variety of systems already in use. You notice that a central storage area has access to hundreds of Petabytes of space which isn’t filling up very rapidly. You decide to try to solve the same resource issue and the machine files it in the cue for the next go around with processing.

What Differences Do You Spot?

The number of users may seem obvious, but multiple users can make use of Parallels on distributed networks. The resource allotment cue is different, the process of getting at storage is perhaps somewhat different, and most certainly the functionality is different. You can use a cloud system as though it were a massive computer, multiple users can access the same files, generally at the same time. That means that is someone in Bolivia is watching the Matrix in their native language, you can still watch it in yours at the same time. What parallel computing does is more akin to staying on task with as much power as possible, where clouds generally distribute power in calculated shares on a per user basis.

Can The Same Hardware Do Both?

Yes – at a cost. There are configurations of cluster systems possible that make use of virtualization in ways that enable a wider assortment of user experiences and in some cases can perhaps integrate them well enough on a user basis somewhat smaller than a system dedicated to just one configuration or another. VDI’s on distributed networks is a system as a service and in fact can be utilized for cloud desktop systems. Some systems exist which offer a degree of security that can be incorporated into your infrastructure without the same hassle as some of the other VDI’s on offer.

What Can This Do For Your Business

It can enable your business to make use of security technology in more compliant ways. A dog groomer might not need this technology, but a successful one who has a franchise under their management almost certainly does. It may be possible to individually secure a network for everyone who has a professional IT team at their disposal, but even then it’s rare. Compliance with security protocols across large systems is akin to locking the backdoor at night. A smart business does it, and a foolish business never does. If you are interested in discussing this technology I can recommend you contact BriqHausLtd. Tell them “Always In Tao” sent you, to get a free consultation and ask how it could help your organization.

VIRTUALIZATION MASTERY – w/ Ping Of Death

super_ping

Being able to create machines within machines has been the aspiration of humanity since the days of alchemical yore. What we see here is the Windows 10 host Command Line Prompt “talking” via the ping utility to a Kali Linux VirtualMachine on Oracle’s Virtualbox, which is conversely talking over the “wire” to the host machine using ping. This is the basic proof-of-work demonstration of electronic warfare. The next steps are spoofing, redirecting, passive sniffing, phishing, and exploitation.
