A trusted user circle server for encryption key distribution and authentication support, as well as a client-side application which resides on users devices are disclosed. In particular, the trusted user circle server manages a repository for static public keys (SPUK) which are used for authentication and secure distribution of a dynamic private context key (DPCK) used for the end-to-many encryption. Accordingly, posting users encrypt posted document using the DPCK and viewing users retrieve the DPCK to decrypt the posted document. These keys are associated to the trusted user circle and are generated dynamically for a given circle policy context (CPC). The CPC is an identifier that represents a group of members of a trusted user circle. It changes whenever any member of the trusted user circle leave it, when a new trusted user circle is created or when the DPCK expires after a pre-determined period of time.

News Article | July 22, 2015
Pakistan has been building out its surveillance capabilities, according to a new report from the UK-based watchdog group Privacy International. The plan includes outlines for collecting broadband internet traffic, phone records, and cellular data transmissions en masse. They're along the lines of programs already run by the NSA and GCHQ, but they could end up even more invasive when combined with Pakistan's existing registration systems. The country requires universal SIM card registration by fingerprint, and maintains a national biometric ID program. Much of the detail in the report is drawn from a series of contractor requests Pakistan made in 2013. "What the ISI wanted to build," the report says, "was a complete surveillance system that would capture mobile communications data, including Wi-Fi, all broadband internet traffic, and any data transmitted over 3G." It's still unclear how much of that capability Pakistan was able to achieve, but it's clear the country's intelligence agency had ambitions to equal Western surveillance agencies. More controversially, they often ended up working with Western companies to fulfill those ambitions. To enable "lawful intercept" capability in the phone system, the country turned to familiar telecommunications companies like Ericsson, Alcatel, and Huawei. Records also indicate Pakistan monitored its citizens' web traffic with software from a US company called Narus, and also had working relationships with intrusion software vendors like FinFisher and Hacking Team. While much of that software is already export-controlled, the country seems to have had no problem meeting customs requirements for much of the US and Europe. Germany alone authorized nearly 4 million euro in export licenses to Pakistan specifically for the purpose of "monitoring technology and spyware software."

New Edward Snowden documents revealed on Saturday in the New York Times detail a decade-long secret partnership between the NSA and AT&T, which provided the spy agency with metadata on billions of emails. Although the Times story has garnered a lot of attention, it offers few details about how the telecom conducted the siphoning and spying for the NSA. But two stories published almost decade ago by WIRED and Salon provide in-depth details about the secret rooms at AT&T facilities in San Francisco, Missouri, and other areas across the US that the NSA used to siphon internet data. AT&T isn’t identified by name in the Snowden documents, but the Times notes that “a constellation of evidence” points to AT&T as the primary company mentioned in them, which several intelligence officials have confirmed to the paper. According to the Times piece, the siphoning of internet data from AT&T began in 2003 and continued for a decade in a relationship that the NSA called “highly collaborative.” The telecom giant, according to one Snowden document, was extremely willing to help out the spy agency, and its engineers “were the first to try out new surveillance technologies invented by the eavesdropping agency.” WIRED and Salon exposed that willingness back in 2006, when Mark Klein, a former technician with AT&T in San Francisco, and two other former AT&T technicians who worked at other facilities, provided information about secret rooms the telecom had built in Bridgeton, Missouri and San Francisco. According to them, AT&T first built the highly secured room in Bridgeton, outside St. Louis, in 2002. The telecom outfitted the room with a biometric “mantrap” that was secured with retinal and fingerprint scanners, and only workers with a TS/SCI security clearance were allowed inside. The facility, local workers were told, was being used for “monitoring network traffic” for “a government agency.” The Bridgeton facility was a significant jewel in the NSA’s crown, because it was AT&T’s technical command center, the place from which the telecom managed all of the routers and circuits carrying its domestic and international Internet traffic. At the time, AT&T controlled about one-third of all bandwidth carrying Internet traffic to homes and businesses across the country, which essentially gave the NSA access to an enormous amount of data through its partnership with the telecom. Although the Bridgeton room was likely one of the most important secret rooms AT&T established for the NSA, it wasn’t the only one. AT&T also hid “secret rooms” deep in the bowels of other facilities in several US cities. The Snowden documents the Times obtained say the company installed surveillance equipment in at least 17 of its Internet hubs, but doesn’t identify the cities. Documents shown to WIRED in 2006, however, indicate that in addition to San Francisco and Bridgeton, secret rooms were built at AT&T facilities in Seattle, San Jose, Los Angeles, and San Diego. “These installations enable the government to look at every individual message on the internet and analyze exactly what people are doing,” WIRED wrote in 2006. Documents that Klein provided WIRED at the time offer technical details about how it was done. High-speed fiber-optic circuits entered Room 641A at an AT&T facility on Folsom Street in San Francisco and were connected to routers for the telecom’s WorldNet service, part of the internet’s common backbone. Only one management-level technician with a security clearance from the NSA could enter the room. Plans for the secret room, drawn up in 2002, discussed the difficulties of trying to spy on fiber-optic circuits. Unlike copper wire circuits that emit electromagnetic fields that can be tapped without disturbing the circuits, fiber-optic circuits don’t leak their light signals. In order to monitor communications crossing them, technicians have to physically cut the fiber and divert a portion of the light signal to siphon data, using splitters. AT&T diverted the split signal to a special cabinet in its secret room. There, a device made by Narus analyzed the traffic and presumably filtered it to provide the NSA with the data it wanted. This included giving the NSA access to metadata from billions of emails as they flowed across the telecom’s domestic networks. According to the Times, AT&T began turning over emails and other internet data to the spy agency around October 2001, even before the secret rooms were built, in a program dubbed “Fairview.” The program forwarded 400 billion Internet metadata records to the NSA’s headquarters at Ft. Meade in Maryland—which included the senders and recipients of emails and other details, but not the content of the correspondence. AT&T also forwarded more than one million emails a day to be run through the NSA’s keyword selection system. In September 2003, AT&T apparently enabled a new collection capability for the spy agency, which amounted to a “‘live’ presence on the global net.” The Times doesn’t elaborate on what this involved. In 2011, AT&T also began handing over phone metadata to the NSA, including call records for 1.1 billion domestic cellphone calls a day. Documents leaked by Snowden in 2013 provided stark evidence in support of the claims made in 2006 by Klein and the two other anonymous AT&T technicians. But according to the Times, it’s unclear if the program for siphoning Internet data still exists in its original form today. In the last two years, revelations exposing the breadth of the NSA’s surveillance, as well as the cooperation of technology companies in helping the NSA spy, have forced the agency to curtail some of its activity. Some companies have also begun to push back against the agency’s requests for data in the wake of the public’s anger about their duplicity in helping the agency spy.

Symantec announced today that it will be hiring 65 engineers and technical staff from Narus, a cybersecurity company and Boeing subsidiary, as a part of a partnership between the two companies. Narus, which was acquired in 2010, is a cybersecurity-focused big data analytics firm. Symantec wanted the employees that it’s bringing on board for their “hard-to-find” expertise in machine learning, security, big data analytics and networking, and will be putting them to work on the company’s Unified Security platform. Boeing will retain control of Narus’s intellectual property and licensing, even as the company’s employees move over to Symantec. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Narus had around 150 employees based in Silicon Valley and Bangalore, India at the time of the acquisition. Most of those who weren’t hired by Symantec have been laid off, though a small number of former employees have been given other positions inside Boeing. The Narus deal is the result of Boeing trying to find new ways to monetize what it got out of the company’s acquisition. Company spokesperson Andy Lee told GeekWire in an email that its expectations for Narus hadn’t worked out as expected. “When we acquired Narus in 2010, we did so expecting a number of new market opportunities to emerge for the company’s unique set of commercial enterprise cybersecurity and big data products and services,” he said. “When those opportunities did not materialize as anticipated, we looked for other ways to leverage the impressive talent pool and intellectual property developed by Narus.”

UK security firms have featured by their absence from the latest Cybersecurity 500, a recently set up global listing of the “hottest” firms in a booming sector. So far, only eleven come from Britain. Launched last October by an Californian marketing and research outfit, the Cybersecurity 500 is intended as a picture of the industry based on the recommendations of a range of experts including CISOs, VCs, security professionals and even journalists encountered at global security events and during research. Although firms can’t buy their way on to the list per se, they can buy one of several dozen ‘positions’ near the top of the list for a year’s duration, an important point to bear in mind when reading it. How many took up that option remains confidential. The February ranking (monthly updates are promised) has FireEye in top spot, ahead of Moka5, with AlienVault, Norse, Easy Solutions, Splunk, Lancope, Narus, Veracode and CyberArk rounding out the top ten in that order. In an industry often seen as built around large anti-virus and infrastructure firms such as Symantec, Trend Micro and McAfee, this is an unexpected list of names some not that well known. As it happens, Trend sits in 13th spot, McAfee (Intel Security) at 34 and Symantec at a lowly 159. The firm behind the Cybersecurity 500 explains that the intention was to create a list of firms worth watching rather than simply reflecting size and revenue. It repeats that none of the companies listed paid anything simply to be included. This, of course, is what makes such listings interesting – they eschew conventional and sometimes misleading measurements tilted towards what was successful in the past. The overwhelming majority of the 500 are US-based firms even if a handful (Check Point, ESET, Cyberroam, Radware and Tufin) are really non-US firms with US subsidiaries. The US domination of ‘hot’ security and startups is still noteworthy. The UK appearance would fit on the back of the proverbial cigarette packet, if such measures still count, and runs to the following firms: BAE Systems, Avecto, Boldon James, Mega AS, Protectimus, Sophos, Digital Shadows, BT, Acunetix, and Burp. The highest placed is Swivel Secure at number 197 with the other nine all at 350 or lower. Meanwhile, Czech anti-virus firm AVG appears in 12th place, just ahead of Japanese firm Trend Micro in 13th place, Italy’s DFLabs in 17th place, Finland’s Codenomicon in 24th place, and Russia’s Kaspersky Lab in 31st place. By this measure, the UK is barely tepid never mind hot. Or perhaps it is simply that not many of them were willing to pay for a more prominent position. One can always quibble with the judgments of a single list's methodology based partly on ‘buzz’ with an unknown number paying to be far higher up than they would otherwise be. There will be sceptics galore. But the absolute numbers of UK firms and the composition of the list as a whole is still interesting. "We recognize the UK as one of the global leaders in cybersecurity innovation" said Cybersecurity Ventures founder and CEO, Steve Morgan, when contacted by Techworld. "The UK has a rich ecosystem of cybersecurity product vendors, service providers, event producers, and media firms - and we are expecting substantially further representation of UK cybersecurity companies on the Cybersecurity 500 in our monthly editions coming up," he said. The monthly nature of the Cybersecurity 500 allowed adjustments to be made to reflect new UK entrants, he said. Time will tell how seriously the list is taken by an industry short on even subjective measures of significance. But it’s a good bet that startup CEOs and their investors in particular won’t complain if they make it into the 500 at some point.
