Russian anti-hackers will appear in the Russian army

Special units will appear in the Russian army, which will include the so-called “anti-hackers” - people with technical education who will protect the “military Internet”. They will scan the system for the presence of enemy cyberattacks and quickly neutralize them.

Units will appear in the Russian army that will take control of the “military Internet,” Izvestia reports citing the Ministry of Defense. Anti-hackers with a special higher technical education will seek and eliminate cyber threats, making access to the "military Internet" from the outside practically impossible.

It is reported that software has already been created that should integrate field control points and provide a multi-level network protection system consisting of firewalls, antivirus programs and other software elements.
With their help, the entry point at which the attacker tried to connect to the secure network will be determined. After that, the anti-hacker will receive a signal from the system, which will offer to reconfigure the network. After that, the specialist determines the type of attack and its consequences, and also builds a new data transmission configuration so as not to use a compromised channel.
As explained to Izvestia by the chairman of the Digital Economy Development Fund German Klimenko, the military Internet requires special attention and protection, despite its technological effectiveness.
According to him, the army is usually quite conservative in introducing new technologies, so the fact that they act “ahead of the curve” is a good precedent.
Earlier it became known that the Ministry of Defense tested the operation of a long-range military network, which can be quickly deployed and used for emergency communications. This project is called multi-service transport communications network (MTCC). It is reported that the first phase of work will be completed by the end of 2019, and the full MTCC will be ready in two years.
Test launches of the "military Internet" took place in early August. According to the Ministry of Defense, data was exchanged between two points in the Central Military District, the distance between which exceeds 2 thousand km. In order to ensure such a range, the Ministry of Defense required more than one and a half thousand mobile communication systems. At the same time, the information transfer rate was 300 Mbps. More than 4,500 military personnel took part in the exercises.

As part of the testing, the digital and mobile video conferencing systems MKS-P and MK ZVKS were used, as well as the R-438-N Belozer space communications station. For data encryption, “Nickel” mobile complexes were used, which allow separate secure communication channels, and then encrypt all incoming information. It is reported that the deployment of all the equipment took no more than an hour.

The main advantage of this system is its autonomy - the “military Internet” is in no way connected to a regular network, which means it is less prone to leaks and hacker attacks from outside.

As explained to Izvestia by the editor-in-chief of Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine Viktor Murakhovsky , the main task of communication channels of the “military Internet” type is to transmit and process data for automated and combat control systems, since a modern automated military command and control system allows the headquarters to receive exhaustive information directly from the battlefield.

In September last year, the United Kingdom announced plans to increase the number of specialists in “offensive cyber forces” to withstand challenges from other countries.
It was reported that the country will hire two thousand specialists in connection with the "growing threat" from Russia.
The new unit will include officials of the Center for Government Communications, British troops, as well as contract specialists.
If you believe a source familiar with the situation, the government will allocate £ 250 million (almost 22 billion rubles) to finance this project.
Enhancing the UK’s defense in cyberspace is a critical challenge in the current situation when Russia is conducting offensive operations, said General Richards Barrons, former commander of the British Joint Armed Forces.
“By introducing offensive cyber technology in the UK, we are levelling the chances [in this area], as well as gaining new opportunities to deter and punish those countries that are trying to harm us,” said Barrons.
