Oh, sorry. I was thinking of Thunderdome.
The new head of Israel's National Cyber Directorate (INCD) has announced the nation intends to build a "Cyber-Dome" – a national defense system to fend off digital attacks. Gaby Portnoy, director general of INCD, revealed plans for Cyber-Dome on Tuesday, delivering his first public speech since his appointment to the role in …
For context, and without going into the political ramifications: Iron Dome is not considered "controversial" within Israel at all, rather it is seen as a great success. It has enabled a civilian population of millions to survive short-range missile attacks for years with almost zero casualties.
Granted, this is subjective and one sided, the population in Ghaza is suffering, and so on.
It's very odd how a purely defensive system is thought to be provocative, or even just controversial. Anyone who finds Iron Dome (or Cyber Dome if it comes into existence) controversial or provocative is just upset at the thought of Jews being able to stop themselves from being killed.
Well, it depends on context. During the old Cold War, for instance, any system that promised to intercept incoming missiles could be seen as undermining the premise of "MAD", and therefore as active preparation for launching a nuclear attack.
Of course that doesn't apply to this case, but it's an example of how a defensive system can be provocative.
At best, you are an idiot, and if you are not that then you are an antisemite (which of course is a paradox, because antisemites are idiots). .... Furious Reg reader John
And when you are wrong, Furious Reg reader John, what makes that /IT you?
WTF have concentration camps got to do with a cyber defence system? Absolutely fuck all.
WTF have concentration camps got to do with a cyber defence system protecting the Jewish state? The antisemitism of the commenter.
Another idiot exposes themselves, leaping to the defence of the antisemite. amanfromMars 1 - you should crawl back under your rock.
Q ....... "How is a cyber defence system in any way comparable to a concentration camp?" ...... asks Furious Reg reader John
A ...... In the way Anonymous Coward shared whenever they say ..... "You don't have to imprison your enemy, if you can convince them to put up walls and lock themselves in.”
ya beat me to it, but I was going to say it another way -
You don't have to imprison your enemy, if you can convince them to put up walls and lock themselves in.
I can imaging that this Dome of Security kills any chance of FPS gaming over the internet.(if that's allowed there that is)
Both attacking and defending the indefensible is always full of strange surprises and very quickly can prove itself ruinously expensive and excessively revealing to fund and run, and the alien spaces where virtual endeavours are exercised and employed and exploited and enjoyed provide neither succour nor protection nor safe haven hiding places for such foreign IT and AI and media action highlighting and alienating Advance Cyber Threat Treatment activity.
Take care out there if you share sensitive and/or secret and/or surreal metadatabase and dare win win for minor skirmishes and major battles encountered therein suffer not the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune nor the Prisoner's dilemma which both starts and ends with one on a nobler path never before even imagined remotely possible and simply achievable.
And further to the above, for all eyes to receive and perceive is the reality to virtually accept as the universal playground to macro administer and micro manage if leading and progressively pioneering with future event horizon instances rather than following and failing to comprehend and positively support .........

[Thank you. Your comment will be displayed soon after reviewing.]
Take care out there in the spaces and places where advanced special forces and and almighty sources share and dare win win command and control of all that is fundamentally necessary to lead anyone and anything anywhere and everywhere without the burden and expense of the capture and captivation of exhausted prisoners hindering rapid progress with delays to overwhelming success.
Clouds are neither absolutely safe nor admirably secure. They leak information and intelligence like a sieve and thus is the stealthy exfiltration and silent deadly export of sensitive and/or top secret shenanigans to all manner of vested interest parties a grand enterprise which does not allow for and reward such as random mistakes or fantastic misspeaks which are realised to be manifestly false and hopelessly misleading and desperately optimistic.
Having said that though, one is forever condemned to suffer and enjoy serial crippling failure in any endeavour if one does not entertain the undoubted advantages which clouds certainly so easily supply and are provided for ...... ergo, do no evil .... and all will be better than just well for the good and the great.
Happy 4th July, Independence Day, Y’All.
