Kibervoisk Belarus: myth or reality

Kibervoisk Belarus: myth or realityThe 21st century is considered to be the era of information, and the Internet is its apotheosis. However, not everything is as rosy as it may seem at first glance.


The World Wide Web is not only a “storehouse” of knowledge and an entertainment center, but also a source of increased danger, both personal and public.

It is not without reason that the leading world powers are paying active attention to the term cybersecurity that has recently become fashionable. And no one will be surprised by the fact that the United States has become trendsetters in this area.

Considering that today cyberspace is seriously considered as one of the areas for conducting a warrior, it was in the American armed forces that the first cyber command was created, the main tasks of which were not only protecting US computer networks, but also conducting offensive cyber operations.

Following the US, other NATO allies succumbed to the trend of time, for example, Great Britain in the year 2012, and Germany in the 2013. The Germans, according to many experts, have gone farthest. The leadership of the German Defense Ministry said that in the near future a new branch of troops, the cyber war, would be added to the ground forces, naval and air forces. Their direct responsibility will be to ensure the cybersecurity of the state.

Lead this type of troops entrusted with a separate headquarters. He will manage the work of 15000 military and civilians working in the Bundeswehr.

However, the most interesting thing is that only in the structure of the military departments of our neighboring countries there are more than ten such structures. The best-known and largest of them are the NATO Center for Best Practices in Cyber ​​Security in Tallinn, the Cyber ​​Security Center of the Polish Ministry of National Defense (Bialobrzegi), the US-Polish Center for Cyber ​​Intelligence and Analysis in Warsaw, the Information Communications Incident Prevention Unit in Riga, the cyber defense unit in the composition of the territorial forces of the Estonian Armed Forces "Keithselyit", the organizational and staff measures for the creation of units for military denying hostilities in cyberspace within the structure of the Estonian armed forces. And recently it was announced that premises are already being prepared for the future National Center for Cyber ​​Security in Vilnius, on the basis of the military academy. Earlier there was information that the Department of Information Technologies and Cyber ​​Security of the Ministry of Regional Security began work in Lithuania.

These organizations are constantly involved in various trainings and exercises to protect the information space of the EU countries and the NATO bloc from various threats and attacks.

All the above measures and measures could not but affect Belarus. It is already known from media materials that a number of specific units are endowed with similar specific functions in the Belarusian army. That is, the task of ensuring information security in the Armed Forces is supported by the presence of appropriate forces and means. Moreover, in the course of the Belarusian-Russian exercise Zapad-2015, one of these units modeled a situation of large-scale cyber attacks on information systems and military resources, and the other successfully reflected training effects.

As a result, I want to believe that the creation of full-fledged cyber subunits in the Belarusian army will become a real fact. It does not sound regrettable, but while most developed countries have long ago created and openly implemented their own cybersecurity strategies, which are often designed for massively aggressive influence on information systems of a potential enemy, Belarus is only beginning to create and train relevant specialists to counter such threats in cyberspace.

    But how the Merikatos are not happy if someone breaks into their "electronics"! Hai all over the world are raising that their secret data, from the same Pentagon, are published by the media! They really do not like the "exceptional" when they are banged over the head. But they can implement everything: from the simplest bugs, to the wiretapping of the first persons of their allies!
    So on this front, as in war - who whom?

    "the trendsetters in this area are the United States"

    I didn’t understand what kind of fashion to create troops that do not participate in real combat, which reminds me of the theme of SDI unleashed by the United States at one time.
    Well, can it be a cybernetic operation or a blow?
    And pulled the plug from the computer out of the outlet, doomsday?

    Why not. Are there not enough "eggheads" there? There is a solution, and there will be divisions. Moreover, this is necessary first of all for Belarus itself.

          Where does this shock come from? Until I learned to wrap footcloths in CA, my calluses were also rubbed. Young in slippers with plucked calluses - it was a normal, but short-lived picture. You always have to start learning military affairs small, even with winding footcloths. And for push-ups, running and so on .... Usually, this punished dystrophanes. Only the one who strained himself, became an invalid, can have complaints against the commander (I have not met a single one). All the rest, I think, are grateful to the army not only for their physical development, but also for growing up, liberation from infantile traits and habits. Also, an insult: "push up on the fists."

    Unfortunately, all "cyber troops of the Republic of Belarus" are engaged only and exclusively in controlling the network in order to prevent civil discontent, intimidation and create the impression of total control. Independence is degradation; in the military field, this degradation is fully manifested.

          "Misunderstandings" are people like you. Belarus has a history of statehood for about 1200 years. And our state was once the largest in Europe. If you, Muscovites, did not come here to rob and kill, then even now the ON-Belarus would be a big country. Here are a couple of tricks for the sworn friendship of two Orthodox peoples, based on information from the chronicles of the 16-18 centuries:
          1) the Livonian war launched by your king - 1 of 3 inhabitants died in VKLRZH.
          2) the war of 1654-1667 - 1 out of 2 inhabitants died in the VKLRZH (!!!!)
          3) the Northern War - 1 out of 3 inhabitants died in VKLRZH.
          Litvin-Belarusians waged the bloodiest wars with you Muscovites.
          "Return your harbor" to your relatives, and yours is the city of Moscow - "MoKsva" (from the name of the Finno-Ugric tribe MoKsva, who lived in these places) and Ryazan-Erzan (from the name of the Finno-Ugric tribe Erzan who lived in these places) ... For example, Mister Velikaya Novgorod is not yours, it is an independent RUSSIAN state, which was destroyed by Ivan the Terrible, killing the political elite, taking the craft people into slavery, plundering and melting the treasury. Tver is not yours either. Kazan is also not yours, Smolensk is also not yours (this is ours, Litvinov - Belarusians, taken away from their native Polotsk land in 1612), Siberia is also not yours. The list of expropriations is quite impressive. Therefore, sit quietly and do not climb "with a pig's snout in the row of pork."
          Better be afraid that the GREAT CHINA does not expropriate you, all the prerequisites for this are already there, and in 50 years the BACKGROUND WILL MULTIPLIFICALLY. One Great Hermit Monk, who lived in a hermitage on the Solovetsky Islands, who possessed the gift of foresight from God, described many events that happened in the 20th century, and, most importantly, everything he described - everything came true. He described the scenario of the collapse of Russia as follows: "There will be no war .... Russians will go to sleep in their own state, and wake up in a foreign state ... Whoever does not resist will remain alive. Any resistance will be brutally suppressed, everyone who will take the weapon will be killed mercilessly. The Chinese will marry Russian women who will give birth to them children ... And there will be no greater state on earth than this ... Russia will remain only in Europe. Only after this will the Christian world understand that it has lost and will render assistance to the rest of Russia ". Therefore, Moscow chauvinists, do not go into a foreign country. As our Old Man said: "Though we are brothers, we want to live in a separate apartment."
          On your part, if you consider yourself a CIVILIZED EDUCATED PEOPLE, to use the word "misunderstanding" in our WHITE (that is, in one of the Old Slavonic meanings of the word - PURE) RUSSIA, this is the same as taking away housing from your brothers and sisters and drive them out into the street. Would you be able to do this with your closest relatives ???

    There is the Belarusian "Komsomolskaya Pravda" http://www.kp.by/, there is a state news agency - www.Belta.by, there is the main state publication - the newspaper "Belarus Segodnya" www.sb.by, there is, finally, a real "Belarusian military newspaper" http://www.mil.by/ru/vsr/ .
    Opposition sites (but there is information, oh, how to filter it!) You can name http://www.charter97.org/ and the site "Belarusian partisan", which openly partisans against Lukashenko - http://www.belaruspartisan.org/. Oppo sites give some inside information, but there are many pro-Ukrainian and nationalist articles.
    A good youth site "Online", although it is outside politics and writes about life - http://www.onliner.by/ You can read www.tut.by (Here Bai), but everything connected with Lukashenka is carefully filtered.

    In this regard, I want to once again touch on the topic of Windows. I don’t know how much money was spent from the budget to purchase this operating system, but without a hitch, they would be enough for the normal training of school computer science teachers, so that the school had only Linux, and there would still be left to develop modern software systems for schools and universities of various types . Schoolchildren would learn the basics of programming much better, and there could be much more talented programmers in the country. The most important thing: pirated winduz and software for them contribute to a decrease in the level of law-abiding in society: illegal actions from childhood become the norm for a huge number of teenagers.
    When you switch from Windows to Linux, you get the feeling that you began to live under communism: a huge selection of free programs for a variety of tasks, everything is legal, collected, tested and sorted in a special storage, there are no viruses. And the responsiveness of the system is such, "that I will die!"
    A friend has a Windows 8 and a computer i7. If you have to do something on it, then it starts to shake up. You press the right mouse button to open the program menu, and instead, a blue circle spins before your eyes, like "Hypnosis ..., hypnosis ... Grab your nose!" My computer is much older, but there are no such freezes in Linux, Linux distributes processor and memory resources much more efficiently, and everything flies. Therefore, on it, the user feels like the master of his "virtual homeland", and on Winduz - the owner of Winduz, if he needs to scroll something in the powerful carcass of his kernel, everything else is cut down, freezes, and the user's activity can easily end with a blue screen.
    Vinduz is like a monopolized market economy: at every step they try to deceive you, to boil what you don’t need, and more advertising, to make you spend money. Today there are already very accessible, optimized for Russian-speaking users of Linux development. Among them, in the first place, of course, Calculate. I recommend it to everyone who does not suffer from gambling addiction.
