Science espionage

36
Industrial espionage is characterized as the greatest threat to scientific research and advanced production. It is conducted at all levels, it is engaged in the state, international organizations, individuals. What are the methods and ways of collecting commercial information? How to protect yourself?


The rapid progress in the very specific and most modern methods of industrial espionage is evidenced by the rapid increase in the search for secrets stored in computer storage devices. The leakage of almost 80 percent data is associated with elementary indiscretion or negligence. In accordance with the proposal of the deputy Irina Yarovoy, telecom operators will be obliged to store calls and correspondence for six months, despite the fact that the fulfillment of this requirement will increase the cost of services. But at a recent UNESCO conference, a major American computer expert, Bernard Benson, said that the accumulation of secrets in storage devices posed a danger that could turn into a catastrophe, and called for immediate warning.

This is about personal correspondence, it is one of the channels of leakage of important industrial secrets through carelessness. In this regard, the military intelligence and security agencies of the United States instituted a mini-dossier of more than 25 millions of Americans who were considered potentially dangerous.

Knights Beetle and Smartphone

The National Security Agency (NSA) has created equipment that can constantly monitor telephone conversations of citizens not only of the United States, but also of countries with which the American electronic industry has business contacts or supplies products stuffed with microchips. These devices do not lose touch with the manufacturer and constantly supply information about every person who has a modern mobile phone in hand. Naturally, she goes straight to the special services. The more expensive a mobile phone (smartphone) is, the more capabilities it has, the more reliable is the connection with the manufacturer and, therefore, with the NSA and the CIA.

In 70, industrial espionage has focused on electronic and semiconductor elements, electrical engineering, special motors for racing cars, piston engines, the construction of jet planes by companies such as Boeing, McDonnell Douglas, Lockheed, transistors, plastic materials, some types of radios. Competitors also fought for the secrets of hermetic blockage, new powders, cold light, the creation of acids, the storage of food, the purification of diamonds, and the production of gold.

Today, such espionage has become an important factor in the scientific and technological progress and policies of many developed countries, such as China, Japan, the USA, Germany, India, Iran, Brazil, Argentina. For example, the growth of industrial power of the Land of the Rising Sun is associated with an increase in the number of industrial spies to the impressive figure - 10 thousands. At the same time, Japanese experts in this field actively used and, apparently, continue to read Soviet, Russian scientific and technical literature to collect information on a variety of issues. However, their industrial secrets there are reliably protected not only by the difficulty of the language, but also by the industrial secret police.

French journalist and parliamentarian Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber qualifies a huge increase in American investment in Western Europe as a war that the United States does not wage in dollars or oil, not tons, not even the newest machines, but through creative thought, organization and talent. He believes that this is the first big war without weapons. Indeed, General Motors is not a Wehrmacht, the takeover of the French electronic company “Bul” is not Munich (1938), but the Anglo-French project of the supersonic “Concord” aircraft is not a Sedan (1870). ”

American firms one after another open headquarters in Western Europe for centralized management of their assets. This truly real federalism is the only one in Europe that is based on a high industrial level, and now goes much further than the experts of the “common market” thought about it. Wherever tentacles of industrial concerns and conglomerates, banking groups and syndicates stretch from Wall Street, total control reigns.

Science espionage

For American business, Europe’s “common market” has acquired the meaning of a new Eldorado. The same can be said about international industrial spies. Keeping up with the latest technical solutions is becoming increasingly difficult, as can be seen from the time of introduction of scientific inventions into practice:

the photo took 112 years (1727 – 1839);
for phone - 56 (1820 – 1876);
for radio - 35 (1867 – 1902);
for television - 12 (1922 – 1934);
atomic bomb - 6 (1939 – 1945);
for transistors - 5 (1948 – 1953);
for integrated circuits - 3 of the year (1958 – 1961).


Today, there is an inseparable organic connection between scientific and technological achievements, discoveries, inventions and the activities of the “Knights of the Cape and Dagger”, driven (like the entire business world) by the thirst for enrichment. Not surprisingly, industrial espionage has become more dangerous than military. To draw a line of demarcation between them is hardly possible. How does all this affect the functioning of the Russian defense industry?

Some people think that after 25 years after the collapse of the USSR, we no longer have any industrial secrets. In addition, given the complex social and legal situation, the problem of creating national information resources and technologies of protection against foreign interested parties turned out to be very difficult.

In the economic field, this is due to the imperfection of the protection of entrepreneurial activity from objectively occurring risks and the lack of a proper legislative base for the protection of intellectual property. In the physical - with the constant unlawful actions of criminal and other structures, weak organization of the security of objects and citizens. In informational - with an increase in risks accompanying socio-political and economic activities.

The reasons? First, unresolved, and sometimes unlawful corporate relations between groups of economic actors. Secondly, the lack of adequate legal support (cover) to comply with the law in the field of information security. Thirdly, the spontaneity of the market, the manifestation on it of open elements of industrial espionage, unfair competition.

According to official data, today in the Russian Federation only 25 – 30 percent of national information resources are state-wide, created at the expense of taxpayers and the means of governing bodies of all levels of government, from federal to local. The remaining 70 – 75 percent is in the hands of domestic and foreign owners. This indicates that the burden of protecting information, resources, systems and technologies falls on the shoulders of private traders, who are not always fair.

We must not forget that the prohibited and dirty methods, forms, methods of industrial espionage in the form of:

theft and unauthorized removal of information about know-how, individuals and legal entities, which is subsequently used to organize production of low-quality fakes and creating compromising materials;
competitors-planned contacts developing into bribery, threats or blackmail, and ultimately inducement to proactive cooperation;
carrying out secret and unauthorized copying (duplication) of confidential documents and the technologies contained in them using modern office equipment or spyware;
penetration into personal computers and systems (networks) for obtaining from them confidential information or personal data;
deliberately blocking the work of information security tools, violation of measures for restricting access to or access to information, data, documents classified as a commercial or other secret.


The book by D. Bloch and P. Fitzgerald, The Secret Operations of English Intelligence, states: “There are two methods of gathering information: open and secret. When secretly used intelligence staff and agents, as well as various technical means. After the Second World War, with the help of technical means, an increasing amount of necessary information is being obtained, now up to 80 – 90 percent ... Technical methods have a number of advantages that contribute to their wider use: relative safety compared to intelligence intelligence and undoubted reliability. ”

In turn, French researcher Maurice Denuser says: “Modern scientific, industrial and economic information is for the most part easily accessible. 95 percent of the data you are interested in can be obtained from special journals and scientific papers, company reports, internal publications of enterprises, brochures and projects distributed at fairs and exhibitions. The spy’s goal is to get the remaining five percent of the information, which is the secret of the company, the secret of mastery. ”

The favorite weapon of modern industrial spy is the latest electronic equipment. The dirty craft of eavesdropping, peeping and sniffing took science, inventions in electronics, optics, and television as maids. Western monopolies do not disdain any methods to strangle the opponent.

Moreover, industrial espionage is served not only by qualified specialists from various fields of science, technology and production, but also by personnel intelligence officers from special services. Over time, most of them willingly change dangerous craft to a more profitable role, which is far from always taken into account in Russian defense concerns.

Meanwhile, the funds spent by the United States on industrial espionage are about a billion dollars a year. In the field of corporate counterintelligence, the income of Pinkerton agencies alone increases by an order of magnitude every 10 – 15 years. Today 400 from 500 of the largest US companies are subscribers of this agency.

But is there an effective defense against industrial espionage? At once we will say that nobody guarantees one hundred percent. In the US, there is an association of former agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). It has about 4500 members who offer industry their services for anti-spyware. The association publishes a reference book about free detectives, and also publishes a list of those already working. In one company, "Ford" 39 are working former agents of the FBI, protecting its industrial secrets.

Unfortunately, in Russia there are still no such associations that would carry out much-needed functions, including preventive ones. As for the FSB counterintelligence agencies, they, apparently, perform mostly repressive functions and beat, as they say, “by the tails”, when the information leakage has already occurred.

Through the eyes of a ladybug

Today, there is a hunt for the most progressive sources of information, for which more and more ingenious ways are being invented. If earlier it was believed that the walls have ears, today - windows, more precisely - glass. Thanks to their trembling, laser devices even make it possible to hear what is happening indoors at a great distance.

There are more exotic ways. The American magazine Space World describes a metal insect with a microphone that beeps. They can be received at a distance of 70 meters with any radio with a frequency ranging from 80 to 90 megahertz. Insect is like an ordinary ladybug.

A factory visitor, a window cleaner, a rented car chauffeur may turn out to be spies. In the United States, the catalog distributed by the Consumer Union provides detailed data on industrial espionage devices and equipment manufactured by Moeler Research, Kel Corporation and intended exclusively for the American police and counterintelligence.

Paradox: it has become difficult to distribute technical inventions that need not to be hidden, but popularized. In the US, this fact was noted by NASA. It is this agency that often offers free-of-charge industry inventions that are made in the process of exploring space and require replication in the interests of the country. The range is wide: from a new airframe to special glue or efficient welding methods. These are so-called research by-products. Any American industrialist can get all this documentation for free.

Russia is also experiencing difficulties in distributing outside of its borders certain new inventions. There was a case with samples of a unique substance for cleaning holds and removing any odor from them. A few drops of the composition on a barrel of water - that's all. Foreign observers of the demonstration of the substance did not dare to take these samples, but several bottles with it were stolen and sold at a very high price.

This was also the case with Soviet diamond processing equipment. The device of the car, the originality of which is that it has a reactive chamber of beryllium, a durable metal that does not allow X-rays to pass through and which allows to follow the stages of production, was described in a Soviet brochure sold in Paris for 60 centimes. However, the data taken from it was sold without any changes for a huge amount of an American company. Information emanating from an industrial spy inspires more confidence than the same, but it is distributed free of charge.

Today, the espionage network is growing around the firms working on the creation of supersonic passenger aircraft, which are a storehouse of the latest know-how and technology. Intelligence knights are also fighting over the secret of transistors made of plastic materials, which can be cut with ordinary scissors, bent, etc. It excites the minds of competitors radar device for passenger transport, developed in England and the United States. It is based on the Gunn effect. It avoids rail and road accidents and has a huge potential market, the amount of transactions in which, according to preliminary calculations, will be at least 500 million dollars a year.

The attention of intelligence services is primarily directed to the technical personnel of corporations, employees who are charged with summarizing activities or reproduction of drawings. Especially interesting are programmers and clerks who deal with documents. Guides, translators, advertising agents, people who, by virtue of their official duties, meet with foreigners may be useful. At the same time, recruitment methods are constantly being improved.

Say a word about the first department

What is the typology of today's industrial spy? It should be understood that among them there are sellers, salespeople who themselves offer their services. They do not wear masks. As ordinary entrepreneurs, it is easy to establish contacts, and at a meeting they are arranged so that their conversation cannot be recorded. Not only sources, but also getters of valuable information can be highly skilled engineers with a modest salary or a meager pension. They sincerely (and not without reason) believe that after the collapse of the Soviet Union, they have stolen most of the fruits of their labor, and now have the right to regain some of the lost. Therefore, a state that wishes to preserve its industrial secrets is obliged to pursue a balanced social policy, and not rely on legislative or repressive measures.

The labor of scientific research institutes, inventors, workers of the defense industrial complex, highly qualified specialists should be adequately rewarded. In Russia, unfortunately, often the opposite happens. Those who forge the defense shield of the Fatherland lead a miserable existence, and mediocrity on the football field or singing divas for plywood receive two million euros a year. As for youth, the best minds and talents are bought by foreign employers at the root, on the threshold of institutions.

A serious means of preventing industrial espionage is not only counterintelligence, but also the court. No longer the time when the private police Krupp or Ford could expose spies to torture on the spot and bury their corpses in the factory. Therefore, it is necessary to develop more accurate criteria for leakage of valuable information, to improve the legislative framework, which lags behind the challenges of our time.

There is no censorship in the media right now, which seems good. But any media employee can get a prison sentence for unintentionally posting a note containing private data. To prevent this from happening, the editorial staff must have appropriate military and state secret guard, but they are not staffed, and journalists are not. Not every enterprise has so-called first departments.

On this field, we repeat, alas, there are enough legal spaces. As well as various miners of closed industrial and defense information. Their golden age in Russia lasts for 25 years.

          In tsarist Russia, inventions were made, discoveries and no patent were taken.

          It is precisely the patent that is the first link for a spy in finding the right one. Someone patented, say, a new radar installation or a water tap, and in the description he detailed the novelty of this invention and its scheme. It remains only to steal it and sell it to whoever needs it, and it is a matter of technology to add an additional nut or washer there. Composers and those steal new and old tunes from each other. They take some Bach fugue and dilute it with "their" notes, change the rhythm and tonality, and then some Salip Ankorov will perform it and now all of them feel good, the money is like a river, the audience is delighted to buy up discs and tickets. And the "writer" and the performer are resting in the Seychelles for their honestly earned money. The same is in science and technology, including the military.

        Oh, this is a difficult question. The modern world is built on a simple principle - you do someone a favor, and he pays you for it. Football players, artists provide a shitty, cheap service but hundreds of millions and a decent amount is being gained. And the inventor provides an expensive service, but the units and the amount is penny. And if his invention decayed in the first department not introduced, then the service is completely absent. The problem is that the more primitive the activity, the more people are able to evaluate it.

          That's for sure! Therefore, the period of comprehension of many brilliant discoveries from the moment of announcement to the moment of understanding and implementation equals centuries.
          Exploring the work of many geniuses, it becomes obvious that they were prepared by their discoveries by completely little-known scientists about whom they do not even remember.
          The genius of a scientist making a great discovery is always associated with an understanding of the responsibility that this discovery carries. Any discovery changes the vector of development of civilization. But first, it shakes the system of established views. Therefore, the more significant the discovery, the more significant it is in all aspects of influence on the development of society.

    Important data is acquired by the SURCHARGE of key people. Siphoning secrets out of electronic media is no longer as easy and profitable as it used to be. Due to the fact that with HUGE arrays of information it is necessary for someone to sort it out, separating the grain from the chaff. Due to the fact that the ENTIRE document flow is stored in electronic form, it is not easy to understand these arrays of information. And to find a "zest" and use it in your development - much easier and cheaper to BUY a specialist, at the same time to weaken a competitor. If the inventor firm is not large, then the whole firm is acquired.

    Industrial espionage was, is and will be how and what methods do not fight it. In the old days, up to 50% of information was obtained from open sources, the rest through agents. In the age of computerization, the collection of such information becomes easier. No matter how secrets are guarded, no matter what security measures are taken, there will still be their own "kulibins" who will open a loophole to this information. But this does not mean that you need to give up and hopes at random.

    Not only sources, but also miners of valuable information can be highly qualified engineers with modest earnings or a meager pension. They sincerely (and not without reason) believe that after the collapse of the Soviet Union most of the fruits of their labor were stolen from them, and now they have the right to regain some of the lost.
    ----------------------
    I will comment on this thesis on myself. I was a shareholder of a certain OJSC, whose shares were repurchased (the main package), and the OJSC itself was destroyed and its archive, which consisted of drawings acquired back in the USSR, was stolen by the new owners. Nobody bought out my shares, so I believe that I also have the right to reproduce these products if the need arises. And no one will dissuade me otherwise. No confidentiality agreements and other bourgeois dregs.
    PS We are talking about purely civilian products and, in general, simple to reproduce, if you know the principles.

    Now we can talk about the degradation of prom. intelligence. To steal the discoveries and inventions that lie in the algorithm of physical. process and possible tech. solutions can be analyzed if they are within the framework of this algorithm. And fundamental breakthrough solutions can be openly proclaimed and no one will understand, and therefore will not pay attention to them. This is the paradox that is discussed in the article, that many of the developments proposed in open form do not attract the attention of specialists.
    An example can be given. For several years we have been positioning a device simpler than a screw, but which radically changes its derivative in the form of a turbine. The efficiency of his work is orders of magnitude higher, to put it simply. These are actually new aircraft engines, in particular. These are the new rocket turbochargers and more. These are real new technologies. But no one is able to believe in them, and without scientific substantiation they simply do not exist. Therefore, they cannot be seen "as if by day with fire." They are hidden behind the understanding of what they can produce as a physical effect, and not as a visually perceived device. Or methods of complex mathematical analysis on new functions of a number. This is generally a breakthrough in mathematics, and amateurs believe in Mochizuki's 500-page proofs, when the basic methodology of real breakthrough techniques fits into one page. So that to be afraid of fools is all the same that "dresses up before the blind." And then the real problem is the language of presentation.

    Any expert in their field can only be given advice that you should not rush. Any great discovery or invention must have its place in the evolutionary stages of technology and devices. And the more significant the discovery or invention, the more important the aspect of the timeliness of its appearance.

    Today's news. Within the framework of protecting the domestic telecommunication infrastructure, the FSB experts of Russia checked the computer systems of about 20 Russian organizations and enterprises and found a spy software in them. Malicious software was designed for cyber espionage. - As a result of the analysis, it was established that the information resources of state authorities and administration, scientific and military institutions, enterprises of the military-industrial complex and other objects of the country's critical infrastructure were infected. This circumstance indicates the target nature of the spread of the virus, a professionally planned and carried out operation, the FSB of Russia said.

      Can you link?
      And then I ALSO have TemViewer in some places - not everything is possible through RDP.

    That there is a long way to go into science and industry, when everything is under your nose. There is reason to try on situevina on your beloved ones.
    On every site that interests the adversary in the slightest degree, his "magnificent" five are hanging around: three catchers, one analyst and one PSYCHOLOGIST. For me personally, VO is an interesting site, for you, dear, I think too. We will not offend such an informative site as VO by neglecting an adversary, which means that his agents trawl and troll us and you, here and now.

      The current situation is different in that there is more than enough information, but there is a problem with analysis. And since there are no real and effective methods based on mathematics, the problem cannot be solved by increasing the number of analysts.

    The author does not know the topic from the word "absolutely". Scribbled a horror story and URRYA!
    For example, a quote: "The National Security Agency (NSA) has created equipment capable of constantly monitoring telephone conversations not only of the United States, but also of countries with which the American radio-electronic industry has business contacts or supplies products containing microchips. These devices do not lose contact with the company. - the manufacturer and constantly supply information about every person who has a modern mobile phone. Naturally, it goes directly to the special services. The more expensive a mobile phone (smartphone), the more capabilities it has, the more reliable the connection with the manufacturer, and therefore with the NSA and the CIA. "
    Uh-huh. There is "quite a bit" left: to find out that the signal is received from the mobile and to it in a digital package. And the provider encodes it, decodes it, sends it to the subscriber with his equipment, and sends "everything incomprehensible" to the NSA, via a specially dedicated channel, at his own expense. laughing
    The fact that each provider has its own system of "towers" (cellular cells) - adds piquancy.
    Well, the author has forgotten the MOST POPULAR horror story: that EVEN TURNED OFF mobile - "sends everything to whoever needs it." Each mobile has a "secret battery" (ETERNAL!), Which does not turn off and ensures listening. At the same time sending coordinates "where necessary". wassat

    Quote: "If earlier it was believed that the walls have ears, today - windows, more precisely - glass. Thanks to their tremor, laser devices allow even at a great distance to hear what is happening in the room."
    Uh-huh. Only here is the problem - the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection, the glasses are uneven, the glass AT ALL does not have a crystal lattice and over time SLOWLY flows from top to bottom, becoming thicker in the section at the bottom and thinner at the top. And if we add wind, vibrations of the building from passing vehicles, etc., we get - THEORETICALLY possible, but in practice - more likely the "wiretapper" with his SUPER system will be detected than he is someone.
    Etc.

    I recommend. There and about "long-range" microphones are, for example.

    Further. There are 152-FZ and RosKomNadzor. Monitoring the protection of PERSONAL data (in my case). Certification for compliance - 30-50 TR / workplace. Plus certified software, everyone’s accounting logs, access matrices, then ...
    And also in my civil office through and through there is 1 (ONE!) Computer on which REALLY has something, except for the full name, etc. So it is not even included in the local network. Stands behind 3 locks, 2 signaling, etc. With a "pot-bellied" monitor until now, since it is cheaper to buy 4-5 monitors to certify an LCD monitor. sad Nefig, he turns on once or twice a week.
    "According to unverified rumors" wink in offices "with secrets" computers for going "outside" (such as the Internet, communication with a branch, etc.) do not have the word "absolutely". In exceptional cases, all sorts of VipNet and other bells and whistles are used to communicate "with the outside world" of SEPARATE computers.

    What is this?
    So the viruses themselves, and the hackers, too, separately?

    "But any media employee can get a prison sentence for inadvertently publishing a note that contains classified information."

    Audible nonsense! What article is it? Responsibility for disclosing state, commercial, etc. only those who have given a non-disclosure subscription bear secrets!
