Firm pioneers new data protection technique for U.S. military

U.S. Special Forces, Air Force Special Operators and several military services are exploring a new data security technology that can encrypt, disperse and reassemble sensitive content using next generation algorithms, industry sources said.

The technology seeks to leverage encryption and new algorithms to bring security through a process called digital shredding, said Ricardo Bueno, founder and chief strategy officer at Trivalent...

The method uses encryption while shredding the data into multiple storage pieces or shards; pockets of protected data can then exist on a cloud server or any one of many different computer locations, such as a hard drive, before being reassembled.

The technology is aimed at making data less vulnerable to hostile intruders, advanced hackers or adversaries looking to access U.S. military computer networks.

Overcoming brute force without firing a shot. No details really but apparently the tanks were effectively neutralized to the point that it was more hazardous for the crew to abandon their vehicle than remain inside.Also some mention of new tech for precise navigation in GPS-deprived scenarios.

Army electronic warfare technology attacks and disables tank


Army trainers successfully used cyber weapons and electronic warfare (EW) technology to thwart a simulated tank assault at a training exercise conducted at the Army National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Calif. The exercise reinforced the need for the EW and cyber protection technology that is under development by entities such as the Army Rapid Capabilities Office (RCO) and U.S. Cyber Command.

“These tanks had to stop, dismount, get out of their protection, reduce their mobility,” said Capt. George Puryear, an Irregular Operations Officer at Fort Irwin. As a result, they were easily defeated.

The cyber weapon used in the exercise specifically targeted the radio and wireless communication systems of the tankers. Cyber warfare can include both jamming of communication signals and hacker infiltration into networks, which they can then either disable or manipulate to relay false information to commanders from within their own networks. This capability was also demonstrated in the exercise at Fort Irwin, according to an Army official...
