Leaked US Army Cyber Protection Brigade Memorandum appears to show Privacy Solutions compromised




The picture being referred to is a leaked picture of a memorandum on image board 4chan, complete with Department of Defence letterhead, seeming, by all accounts, to be from the United States Army’s Cyber Protection Brigade.

The posted picture displays an official document brought up on a terminal screen, on one side of which is a Common Access Card or CAC, complete with picture, conventional of a Department of Defence employee. It seems, by all accounts, to be a legitimate one, however it reeks of incredulity and skepticism. Be that as it may, it's as yet not clear with respect to why somebody would want this data leaked.

However another sensible theory can be that, there might be some sort of involvement of the cryptocommunity. Nevertheless an extraordinary method to constrain utilization of privacy solutions is to convey into the environment rumours about their being anything but, a sort of scheming way of spreading trepidation, uncertainty and doubt.

 “The success we have had with Tor, I2P, and VPN, cannot be replicated with those currencies that do not rely on nodes. There is a growing trend in the employment of Stealth addresses and ring signatures that will require additional R&D.” reads the document.

“In order to put the CPT back on track, we need to identify and employ additional personnel who are familiar with the Crypto Note code available for use in anonymous currencies,” the memo stressed.
Crypto Note which is likewise the application layer for privacy tokens, for example, Bytecoin (BCN), Monero (XMR), utilizes a memory bound function which is hard to pipeline, that the pertinent agencies entrusted with monitoring and tracking internet solutions, and now coins, needs outside help with Crypto Note may say a lot about where the different government divisions are in terms of their security keenness.

The picture was distributed among Steemit, Veekly, and even Warosu exactly five months back, yet outlets, for example, Deep Dot Web may claim to have broken news. The document but is as yet worth dissecting, assuming its legitimacy.


As far as concerns its, Deep Dot Web claims to have contacted "a Monero developer, who spoke on state of obscurity," and the dev "said that the vast majority of the Monero engineers who have seen the leak trust it to be true. A few sources who were some time ago in the Armed force have additionally said they trust the report to be genuine." Offering ascend to the way that the contents of the document do give off an impression of being totally conceivable.
