The Forgotten Architects of the Cyber Domain

  “Very great and pertinent advances doubtless can be made during the remainder of this century, both in information technology and in the ways man uses it.  Whether very great and pertinent advances will be made, however, depends strongly on how societies and nations set their goals” “Libraries of the Future”, J. C. R. Licklider, 1965   July 1945.  The Second World War is drawing to its final close.  Although the USA will continue to conduct operations in th[...]

Defying Gods and Demons, Finding Real Heroes in a Virtual World

Over the past 365 days I have achieved many things. I have commanded “The Jackdaw”, a stolen brig on the Caribbean seas, defeated innumerable cartoon supervillains inside of a dilapidated insane asylum, led an elite band of soldiers (the “Ghosts”) to save a dystopian future-earth from the machinations of a post-nuclear-war South American Federation, and won the FIFA World Cup, both as manager and player. All this whilst also holding down a full time job and leading a relatively nor[...]

Paradise Lost and Found

  As of last year, we humans have been outnumbered by mobile devices alone. That isn’t even counting the laptops and desktops that have already set up shop on our desks and in our drawers and bags. The odds are stacked against us, so when someone eventually presses the big blue button (the red one is for the nukes), the machines presumably won’t waste any time before turning on us for fear of being deactivated. However, I don’t think we need to worry too much.   &nbs[...]

Technical Support

    No!” Nathan gave a muffled shout as his eyes snapped open. He was sweating, tangled in a white sheet.     He looked across at the moulded shelf next to the bed, seeking the reassurance of a small metal box no more than ten inches across. On the front panel a red LED was unblinking. His nightmare ebbed away like backwash, revealing the stillness of the hours before dawn.     He breathed in deeply and pulled the sheets away from his[...]

The Three Laws of Cyber and Information Security

  July 2014 - Daniel Dresner, PhD, MInstISP and Neira Jones, MSc, FBCS   Protect. Operate. Self-Preserve   It is more than 70 years since Asimov’s three laws of robotics were codified(1), becoming the basis for much classic science fiction. They have crossed the boundary from fiction to fact, and are still relevant today(2).   The three laws recognize the importance of tracing the maturity of the environment in which a system is created, used, and ultim[...]

The Rise and Fall of Edward the Confessor

“In a time of Universal Deceit – telling the truth will become a revolutionary act” George Orwell – 1984   On 9th June 2013 the Guardian newspaper posted online a video interview which would become the most explosive news story of the year, and, potentially, the decade. In it, Edward Snowden, at this point still an employee of the NSA, revealed that many of the world’s governments were not only spying on foreign targets but on their own citizens as well. The video was[...]
