Joe Blog wants download speed — CIOs want secured real-time data.
When MIT Technology Review asked high-tech innovators and luminaries what the Internet might be like five years hence, professor Bjarne Stroustrup, the originator of C++ computer language predicted: “. . . the total end of privacy. Governments and criminals will trawl through accumulated databases with unbelievably sophisticated tools. Obscurity and time passed will no longer be covers.”
Then on 21 April 2010, BBC Online readers were informed that hi-tech criminals are racking up more than 100 attacks a second on the world’s computers, according to a Symantec Internet Report. This wave of attacks is driven by a steep rise in the use of malicious software and the growing popularity of easy-to-use download toolkits that novice cyber-criminals employ to create homegrown malware, reports Symantec.
Chief Information Officers (CIOs) who direct Internet communications are concerned about a “Nero fiddles while Rome burns” approach to online security. Legislators court voters by spending billions of taxpayer dollars; e.g. in Australia $43bn on fibre cable rollouts for faster broadband (movie) downloads, while ignoring a burgeoning Internet cybercrime and privacy invasion pandemic. Before pumping billions down a fibre cable gurgler, politicians must get in behind their nation’s CIO community.
The Internet has zero online security/privacy protocols in its base infrastructure, as it never occurred to pioneer engineers that cybercrime would be a security issue. From the first (29 October 1969) one-word “lo” e-mail between university mainframes has emerged a vitally important, yet hobbled Internet that now calls for remedial action. That one-word e-mail dispatch was meant to be the word “login,” but only the first two letters were successfully sent before the network crashed.
It’s not a computer; it’s a ‘confidential information’ linking system
that allows everyone to toggle switch between a secure (military grade),
real-time, personalised, private GRID and the open, public INTERNET.
David Lucas, author of the e-book, SYMBIOTIC AGE: Mind Power & Digital Converge, advocates increasing the velocity of crucial private communications to real-time under military-grade security. This calls for a segregated pathway that will secure sensitive information, while leaving general communication as it currently is on the Internet.
Lucas calls for communication traffic diversion akin to that used to resolve motorway gridlock: an alternative, supplemental system like Britain’s Cambridgeshire Guided Busway and the California freeways' Diamond lanes, where fast lanes run alongside the gridlocked motorways. Equating to the fast lane, a Selfzone Orbiting Grid™ (SOG™) satellite fleet would cross both poles, circling the Earth every 100 minutes at an altitude of 485 miles (780 km), beyond the drag of planet Earth’s atmosphere.
The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has already set the precedent for a satellite SOG™ when it issued Teledesic LLC an operating license to access the SHF (super-high frequency) Ka band of the electromagnetic spectrum in 1997. These abundant broadband airwaves are incredibly fast, and when compared to the C-band spectrum used by big dish TV and communications from distant space geostationary satellites, have minimal disruptive viewing latency.
MIT professor Dr. David Clark, the Internet’s chief protocol architect (1981-1989), told MIT Technology Review in 2005: “We must rethink the Internet's basic architecture and potentially start over with a new design — and equally important, with a plausible strategy for proving design viability, so that it stands a chance of implementation. We then take the technologies that we already know and fit them together so that we get a different system. This is building new technology innovation that pulls the pieces together in a different way to achieve secure high-level objectives.”
It's time to think outside the box!
Literally — outside the CPU box.
In tandem with mobile cellphone operators’ upgrade to fourth generation (4G) Long Term Evolution (LTE) and WiMax, the opportunity exists for government and business CIOs to open up satellite-based SOG™ to personalise private affairs management, and apply digital delivery to bypass timeworn middlemen.
Rather than third-party telecoms, ISPs, and mobile phone operators that expose private transactional information to the open unsecured Internet, citizens of involved nations could take responsibility for their own information management. Individuals would be allocated unique frequencies of the super-high frequency (SHF) satellite-only Ka band spectrum to enable private access to secured wireless SOG™ airwaves.
With the exception of online incumbents and cyber criminals, this becomes a win-win situation for everybody; with human-digital symbiotic interactivity; cyberspace then becomes as dynamic as the terrestrial world. What this means from a CIO perspective is customers, clients, and healthcare patients would no longer be faceless names in a retrospective CPU database, or nameless faces in a clinician’s waiting room.
Now available, the 120-page e-book, SYMBIOTIC AGE: Mind Power & Digital Converge, with its illustrated content, advocates the removal of all our personal and business data and fiscal transactions from the Internet. Lucas argues that the time has now come to open up the SHF Ka band of the electromagnetic spectrum to satellite-based SOG™ (Selfzone Orbiting Grid™) for secured broadband that functions in real-time.
