Information Superiority & Support: Misplaced & Misunderstood

ABSTRACT

The Australian Defence Force has recently released "an important benchmark in [their] approach to harnessing the power and opportunity presented by the information age" (DoD, 2004, p i) and is seeking “active participation in the implementation and further refinement of the concept” " (DoD, 2004, p i).  Entitled "A Concept for Enabling Information Superiority & Support" (herein referred to as the IS&S Concept Paper), the document sets out to describe in detail how the Australian Defence Force will achieve the information related objectives of Network Centric Warfare (DoD, 2004) that will in-turn facilitate the conduct of Multi-Dimensional Manoeuvre  - The Australian Defence Force's Future Warfighting Concept.

Catch Me If You Can: Cyber Anonymity

ABSTRACT

Advances in network security and litigation have empowered and enabled corporations to conduct Internet and desktop surveillance on their employees and customers, while Governments have spent billions to monitor cyberspace to include entering agreements with corporations to provide surveillance data on adversarial groups, competitors, and citizenry (Reuters, 2010).  Although the initial intent of network and Internet monitoring may be honourable; terrorists, hackers, and cyber-criminals already have access to the necessary tools and methodologies to continue in their activities unabated.  This paper will demonstrate a step-by-step case study using a ‘paranoid’ approach to remaining anonymous using only open-source tools.
