Patent Office Says File Sharing Is A National Security Risk
from the oh,-come-on dept
The entertainment industry has long tried all sorts of tactics to demonize file sharing systems, and all too often politicians seem to accept those claims. For a while, politicians started claiming that file sharing networks were a threat because they exposed children to porn. This went on long after studies showed that the risk was no different from the regular internet. The latest, though, (submitted by John) is that the US Patent Office (who has always been friendly with the entertainment industry due to their similar views on intellectual property) has put out a report claiming that file sharing networks are a threat to national security. It discusses how these file sharing networks default to “share everything” mode and how that’s useful to identity thieves, but then notes that government employees are using the networks and may be accidentally sharing confidential documents.
There is some precedent for such claims. After all, Japan admitted that a contractor with a file sharing system on his laptop had accidentally revealed nuclear secrets a few years ago. Of course, like this report, the Japanese government started out by blaming the software, not realizing it wasn’t the software’s fault at all. Instead, it’s the lax security policies of a government that lets people with classified information on their laptops install programs without any oversight and without any recognition that those programs might be opening up security holes. The fault isn’t with the file sharing systems — but with the security policies of government agencies.
Comments on “Patent Office Says File Sharing Is A National Security Risk”
How is it the softwares fault?
I do not understand where people draw a connection from a source to a problem and then blame the medium. It would seem that if sensitive information was “accidentally” leaked on a file sharing network, that it was a user error, and that the software did nothing but function as intended. This would suggest that perhaps we should put tighter restrictions on government systems? Why does an employee have a file sharing system on their machine in the first place?
This is just more straw grasping in an attempt to give file sharing a negative image. I just wish other people had enough money to make outlandish displays such as this, but in favor of the technology. Technology is not inherently good or evil, it’s people who determine that… or in this case, having competent users and IT staff.
Lack of common sense….the biggest national security risk!
hold the phone.....
let me get this straight…the japs not only are eating our whales, to the tune of 1,000 a year, but they also have nuclear secrets? their constitution says they can’t even have an army. what the hell are these misanthropic destroyers of marine mammals doing with nuclear secrets? let them eat north koreans. they aren’t endangered and it would be a public service. maybe they could just eat each other, actually.
Re: hold the phone.....
And this is the purview
How does this come under the patent office jurisdiction????
Re: And this is the purview
That is what caught my eye – granted the premise of the report is dumb but what in the world is the patient office doing issuing the report?
I agree with Gasoer.
Be honest, that is very very ease to lost data. A good and fast one: burn a cd or dvd and get it out of the office. Lost the the cd to the wrong person…
Hey guys your bank allow the cachiers to have a p2p programs installed??? I don’t think so!
what the hell are these misanthropic destroyers of marine mammals doing with nuclear secrets? let them eat north koreans.
Okay, first, misanthropic means hating humans. So, eating a bunch of whales is not misanthropic.
Second, North Koreans are human. So, eating North Koreans is misanthropic.
If the government laptops didn’t have batteries in them then they wouldn’t be able to transmit sensitive information. Unless they were plugged into the mains. Ban electricity!
Re: Ban batteries
No, ban the metal cable used to carry the electricity!!! That’d solve the problem for sure.
the hall monitor...
they are misanthropic and whale eaters…duh..i didnt imply that eating whales is what qualifies them as misanthropes. what a dildo…so they should channel this propensity for loathing other races, and do the world some good, by eating koreans… leaving our whales alone…who the hell made you the hall monitor? it was just a modest proposal…lighten up…

Agha Dilbar,s Urgent Peace Letter No. 3) Subject: Make the UN Peace Force strongest force of the World to save The World coming from on 3rd World War and State Terrorism, I Agha Dilbar warns the World Community that Israel should be Stopped from genocide and atrocities committed in Palestine and Labnan, In the wake of these Atrocities there must be more Suicidal Bombing and many other Horrible Incidences like 9/11 Attacks due to revenge, which can cause 3rd World War Any time.1) To begin the coming 3rd World War the owners of many Armament producing Factories are playing their roll very actively; so that they can get New Orders after the old stock get exhausted during the 3rd World War. I am putting on alert, UN, Head of States, Parliaments, Political Parties, TV News Channels, International Newspapers and Magazines, Universities, Think Tanks, Amnesty International and welfare NGO,s all over the World, that afterThe3rd World War the Progress and Prosperity of all the Rich, Developed, Under Developed, Poor and Backward Countries of the World will become a dream In the wake of their Economic Crisis.3) Current Powerful, Rich and Developed Nations should keep in mind, That Even if they conquer the Weak Poor and Backward Nations their Armies will Have to face an upended Gorilla War in the occupied regions for the Next Five, Ten or Twenty Years, which might result in the destruction of? Their Defense Power and Economy. Here is a live example of Palestine, Kashmir, Chechnya, Afghanistan and Iraq.4) According to Agha Dilbar strategy, the entire giant disputes of the World Like Palestine, Kashmir Chechnya, Afghanistan and Iraq could only be solved Through UN Peace Force, after making it the strongest force in the World.

My message to UN is to crush the State Terrorism through UN Peace Force in Kashmir, Palestine and Chechnya. Also in the war affected areas. UN Peace Force should make practical efforts to solve Disputes with Table Talk, through Friendship Progress and Prosperity; All over the World .I hope the UN would be successful by implementing my Great Peace Plan, Friendship, Progress and Prosperity in disputed countries all over the World. If UN failed to bring Peace in these countries then 3rd World War and World Terrorism would be resulting in death of Twenty Crore People and Complete destruction of World Economy. Remember as per my research the next 3rd World War would not be an Atomic War, but it will be fought through traditional newly invented Dangerous Weapons. There will be no doubt that Developed and Rich Countries Forces Equipped with newly invented Dangerous Weapons will win the 3rd World War. In case of starting 3rd World War, Developing Countries and their Survival Countries involved in the long Gorilla War for their survival. Resultantly the World Community will totally collapse. Therefore in view above stated positions, the Developed Countries, possessing Fatal Weapons Should, instead of conquering the Under Developed, Poor Countries by Force, May achieve the goal through Friendship, Progress and Prosperity with the help of UN, so that permanent World Peace should be brought.

For classified information in the US, there are tons of restrictions surrounding the machines it can be on. Generally, the machines are in specially secured facilities. The machines have the CD recorders and USB ports de-activated, which can only be activated by an admin who records the activity. The machines are not hooked up to the internet. Authorization is required for software installation.
If anyone has classified material on a public machine in an unclassified environment with filesharing software, this is an egregious security violation under current laws.
Quick, someone patent the patent process, then forbid anyone from using it!
This really needs to stop.
When you think of technology, blond jokes, and government (US, EU …) at the same time, immediately IPRs and Patent Offices (PO) pop into mind like that horrible tune in your head that you cannot stop humming/whistling.
Have you ever met any buxom beautiful blond as clueless about technology as a PO director/supervisor? No, but congressional representative are close competitors for money.
The Patent Office is a national innovation risk
Don't share files at work
Anyone not wise enough to know that you should not install a p2p program on a work computer deserves to be fired.
That being said, you really should not have the ability to install any p2p programs on your work computer, so the IT department should burden some of the blame if any employee is file sharing.
However, regardless of how good your IT department is, there are ways around anything, so it is always possible to install one of these programs. Hopefully, if you’re smart enough to do this, you’re smart enough not to get caught or leak sensitive information. If you do get caught, though, you do deserve to be fired.
“so they should channel this propensity for loathing other races,”
That’s xenophobia mate, not misanthropy.
Maybe I misunderstood
But I thought p2p programs (the ones I use have it) have a single directory they log into in order to store files, and certain directories you make available for uploading to peers.
I assumed that mean’t the program and therefore the peer, could only access those directories.
Re: Maybe I misunderstood
You are correct for most, however, there really are a lot of stupid people who point them at “C:” or “My Documents” so that they can get to any file they want rather then organizing their HD…. It is modern natural selection.
And how does the end-user absolve him/herself from any blame?
Retard Tolerant Software
As developers we must protect the user community from itself… unfortunate but true.
Following “STRICT” guidelines when dealing with classified data is a given. Anyone who is allowed to install such information on a laptop without proper safeguards should be… well you decide!
Actually it isn the japanese consitution that says they can’t have an army. It was a signed agreement at the end of world war II as part of the terms of surrender. Actually for a few years now I believe those terms have been met and they can build an army now if they so wished.
However since they have their military level ‘Defense Force’ there is no need for them to build an army, unless they wanted to invade somewhere. There is a reason there are some pretty cool tech toys over there, and part of it is they aren’t spending tons of money on foreign military bases and on expanding the millitary.
Something to think bout, though truth be told I like most military organizations and some of the technology that goes into it.
by implication, ftp, http, smtp and any other protocol that uses a port for information transfer. Lets all just put a bag over our heads and sit in a corner.
I get it...
The Patent Office put this out becuase like it says the Patent Office is buddy buddy with the entertainment industry. No doubt this report will be the next piece of “irefutable evidence” that file sharing is the bane of all that is good. I’m still waiting for someone to link file sharing to terrorism.
And for #3 and #22, Japan has such high-end tech that they no longer need an army. The Defense Force is just a front to keep the vast robot armies a secret. I’ll bet they have hordes of Maverick reploids just waiting to invade any country
Why not just ban the internet, telephones and electricity and be done with it all?
Hey what about pencils?
They can be used to write down top secret information. A sharp pencil is an obvious “dual use technology.” A child could poke an eye out. We must protect the children and our country.
Outlaw pencils too!
Why stop there, also ban cars, contact sports, guns, knifes and spoons ……………………………
Anyone installing p2p on a work computer is nuts?
Well, must be a lot of nutty people. Network admins can’t lock them all down either. Skype can find its way through pretty much anything you throw up against it.
IM’s, file sharing and such really can be a big problem for national security.
Terrorists can communicate directly with each other, send files back and fourth, with p2p and file sharing, makes it that more difficult to track what is going on. Throw in free email systems like gmail, public internet access and more, can make protecting yourself much harder.
A Real National Treat!
Did you know that anyone can just walk into any library in the United States, walk right up to the card catalog in that libarary and pick any book they want, read it. and then go back to their country and pass that information around in ways that I consider a threat to my country. CLOSE ALL LIBARAYS NOW!
i call BS
Anyone whos ever worked on a govt. facility has had to sit throught training at least once on securing classified information, even if you dont work with it it’s required, and they do tell you this in there..
Classified systems DO NOT touch the public internet, they do have a network but it’s seperate from even the unclassified DOD systems. Hell, they arnt even in the same room as the unclassified ones, they have to be in secured areas.
The Real Threat . . .
The real threat is . . . misanthropic file-sharing whales. They’re out to destroy us by promoting the peer-to-peer sharing of child-harming national secrets.
Damn cetaceans. Never trust anything that has a bigger brain than you do.
Why its OK to blame distributors who violate their
First, a disclaimer: The views expressed below are my own private opinions. They do not reflect the views of any past or present employer.
Mike, since you seem not to have read the report before declaring it to be misguided, I thought I should summarize why, in the case of the particular programs analyzed in the report, it might be appropriate to conclude that there is a problem with the software itself. Here are the highlights:
· In 2002, a published study identified two features in popular filesharing programs (share-folder and search-wizard features) that were causing users to share their personal files inadvertently.
· In 2003, two congressional hearings confirmed the effects of these two features and showed that inadvertent sharing was a widespread problem.
· In 2003, distributors purported to respond to concerns about inadvertent sharing by adopting a Code of Conduct that would have prohibited them from deploying share-folder or search-wizard features on two separate grounds.
· In 2004, some distributors represented to the FTC and Congress that their compliance with their Code of Conduct had rendered inadvertent sharing a mere “urban myth.”
· In reality, in 2004 and 2005, most of these distributors kept right on deploying share-folder and/or search-wizard features. And guess what? Inadvertent sharing of personal files kept right on recurring.
Under such circumstances, there is a problem with the software, or, more specifically, with the distributors who violated their own self-imposed Code of Conduct in order to keep on deploying features that had a known tendency to cause inadvertent sharing.
Mike, can you honestly say that you see no problem with the course of conduct described above? If not, then please consider reading the report and re-evaluating whether it might actually describe some real problems. Moreover, if you do read the report, you will also discover that the problem with these programs is not that they “default to share-everything mode.” They don’t. –Tom Sydnor
Re: Why its OK to blame distributors who violate t
I always believe reports that come from the government. Like when the cherry pick information regarding Global Warming, or Weapons of mass destruction, or when the FDA says a drug is safe and then pulls it cause it causes heart-attacks or strokes.
The best is when the government takes my money for social security and then says it wont be there when im 65 even though they said it would.
Yeah, why would anyone second guess government information.
If you don’t know how to set up a program you are installing on your computer so that it is safe and secure, don’t install it. Stopp being so stupid.
