Espionage involves peeking at the other fellow's hand, marking the cards, cooking the books, poisoning the well, breaking the rules, hitting below the belt, cheating, lying, deceiving, defaming, snooping, eavesdropping, prying, stealing, bribing, suborning, burglarizing, forging, misleading, conducting dirty tricks, dirty pool, skulduggery, blackmail, seduction, everything not sporting, not kosher, not cricket. In short, espionage stands virtue on its head and elevates vice instead.

-- Roosevelt's Secret War: FDR and World War II Espionage, Joseph E. Persico, 2001.

Information Battlespace

During the Civil War, the Defenses of Washington (1862) - a circumferential ring of fortified installations - successfully safeguarded the vulnerable city. Since 11 September, 'next-generation' technologies are administering sprawl's unrestrained landscapes. Streets, sidewalks and back yards that shape the suburban imagination are being re-imaged in military-grade surveillance and satellite-based GPS. Constructed in real and near-real time, sprawl's unpredictable legacy of subdivisions, culs-de-sac, big-box retailers, parking lots, fast-food franchises and high-tech corridors are being reconceptualized as 'battlespace,' the multidimensional battlefield constructed by sensor and reporting technologies that conduct intelligence collection, surveillance and reconnaissance. Reconstituted in GIS scene mapping and mission planning softwares, suburban sanctuaries are captive to command-and-control arsenals which have supplanted the omniscient bird's-eye overview.

New technologies reveal latent infrastructures of political control already embedded in suburban landscapes. They expose consumer-driven sprawl as uniquely manipulable information space. The single-family home is a rich lode of sensitive information about debt, cars, credit cards, banking, taxes, travel, school performance and medical history. Data mining's invasive pattern-recognition algorithms - developed from statistics, artificial intelligence and machine learning - scour massive databases on behalf of the government, seeking 'interesting knowledge.' Sprawl's complex information space has become captive to panoptic schemes of 'multiple cartographies of surveillance.'

-- Deborah Natsios, National Security Sprawl, December 27, 2005 (Cartome)


A asks: What is Cryptome's privacy policy, is user data collected?

Answer: No user data is collected by Cryptome. Logs are deleted several times a day. But read on.

This is not to promise there is nobody else doing the collecting. We periodically warn that covert snooping by ISPs, by network system operators, by spies public and private, by the host of  predators of the vast Web, is rampant.

Log retention is endemic, on grounds it needed for system administration. Hah, just like the feds and the corps claim that is why they need to watch citizens and employees.

As you know there are many, many ways to snoop on traffic, so much that Cryptome asserts there is no trustworthy privacy policy, not for Cryptome, not for anybody else.

To be sure, if privacy policy means just enough privacy to keep users coming into the spider's web, then okay, that is the policy used by government's to assure the citizenry it acts in the public interest. As employers act in the interest of their employees, as corporations act in the interest of their stockholders, as religious and educational institutions and professionals act in the interest of their dutiful fee-payers.

Those who promise the most protection are out to skin you alive, those who promise the most privacy are selling your most private possessions.

Cryptome is not trustworthy, and lies. It's a free site, what else could it be but up to no good?

Avoid the website amintel.org: American Intelligence Study Group. The operator, Michael Hesser (aisg[at]bellsouth.net), has misled Cryptome by asking to set up mirror, and now intends to runs ads on a domain named aisg-cryptome.com, registered by Hesser, who is hiding behind Tucows. Don't trust it or amintel.org.

Cryptome welcomes documents for publication that are prohibited by governments worldwide, in particular material on freedom of expression, privacy, cryptology, dual-use technologies, national security, intelligence, and secret governance -- open, secret and classified documents -- but not limited to those.

Documents are removed from this site only by order served directly by a US court having jurisdiction. No court order has ever been served; any order served will be published here -- or elsewhere if gagged by order. Bluffs will be published if comical but otherwise ignored.

Cartome is a companion site to Cryptome. It is an archive of spatial and geographic documents on privacy, cryptography, dual-use technologies, national security and intelligence -- communicated by imagery systems: cartography, photography, photogrammetry, steganography, climatography, seismography, geography, camouflage, maps, images, drawings, charts, diagrams, imagery intelligence (IMINT) and their reverse-panopticon and counter-deception potential. Administrator is architect Deborah Natsios, longtime Cryptome partner.

Fight the Bot

To combat rogue bots which waste about 25% of Cryptome's bandwidth, siphoning hundreds, even thousands of files at a time, repeatedly, bypassing means and methods of blocking them, the collection is seeded with a few hidden trojans and viruses -- which cannot be downloaded by conventional access to files. Bots which gulp more than 100 files per day will swallow these gluttony pills and explode. Since the fatheaded users of rogue bots do not read this caution, the file names of the pills will be posted here periodically for respectful downloaders to cleanse any toxins inadvertently grabbed.  No published file will be contaminated. The Cryptome DVD will be clean except for the DIRT trojan which is ID'ed on the disk -- and any unknown toxins planted in contributions.

A caution on bots:

Cryptome is attacked several times a day, like many other sites, nearly always by rogue bots, or bots set by default to siphon everything, including deep links, until a new user learns to trim the wide mouth suck. Java, WGet and Webdup are the worst offenders, but not the only ones, because they come ready to siphon everything until reconfigured. Hog bots suck thousands of files in a session before pole-axed. Prime offenders also are the ravenous searching and indexing engines, which 24/7 roam the web repeatedly gobbling the same files, or trashing with 304s for files already indexed. Because these pigs shutout other readers, Cryptome blocks any address which downloads more than 100 files per session, and that often requires blocking an entire domain for providers which assign a random address per session. About every six months Cryptome lifts all blocks (except for eternal offenders), now about 200. If blocked send a message to cryptome[at]eartlink.net, with affected domain name or IP number. Until the block is lifted, use an anonymizer like anonymizer.com; or many recommend anonymouse.org. Please don't unleash bots, or pinch their gorge.
