3 Top Officials North Korea Visit South Korea Talk Peace

Kim Jong-un has not been seen in pubic for also two month. It is reported that he is in hospital  because of poor health practices eating to much cheese his sister and his closest advisers is   reported to have now more control over the country but it difficult to tell if they have the     obedience of North Koreans people but we will see where the people stand on this issue as they are now talking to the south Korea unification director  . On a recent trip to Seoul, in South  Korea, we spoke to a number of recent defectors – people who have escaped from North Korea  and they told us that acts of dissent and rebellion take place more frequently than the experts and the analysts think.

“Anger and unhappiness have been accumulating for a long time and I tell you the breaking point is imminent. (The regime) is going to explode very soon .”

The former official said high-ranking party members in Pyongyang were infuriated by Kim Jong-il’s decision to make his youngest son, Kim Jong-un, the country’s next ruler.

Moves to burnish his credentials – by appointing him a four-star general, for example – made matters worse, said our interviewee. Everybody knew Kim Jong-un had no military training: “The political elites, who have long served the country, as well as those who have worked for government agencies for decades, felt it was an insult.

 

Can Your Body Replace Your Passwords?

today there are different technology like our phone and our watch which has different  software in then that are getting us close to the mark of the beast and RFID chip place in our hand and forehead with all our information on it  and your body begin used as a biometric authentication  take us even closer than we think .

The biometric authentication identify and verify a user based on the physiological or even behavioral characteristics that they display. Think of Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint recognition or the iPhone 6S feature, but going far beyond a simple fingerprint. Think technology that can scan and recognize the pattern of veins in your finger, verify your identity based on a photo of your face, or listen to your voice to find out who you are.

While the possibility that biometric authentication systems could come to consumer devices is   exciting to some, the technology also holds huge potential for company and government origination who want to used all that information so that they can get you to buy their product.

User believe that a clean and simple mobile user experience often outweigh security concern and hit to the password are just as or even more venerable and complex passwords can be problematic to enter on mobile devices, Gartner notes that even a four-digit password  the default to unlock an iOS device  is “inappropriate” to    protect systems like corporate email. But biometric authentication methods offer a compromise, and can be used in conjunction with traditional passwords to provide a better assurance of security, and a better user experience: “Suitable authentication modes include interface interactivity, voice recognition, face topography and iris structure. These modes can be used in conjunction with passwords to provide higher-assurance authentication without requiring any significant change in user behavior.

My take on this is that people will always find a way into our personal information and it the company especially government organization that should be our concern because they the nsa and company all ready have a ton of info about us and they will collect even more because the same company that make this devise sell our info to them or give them back door access in truth this security measure are useless to hacker and your government. Best ad vice to you is not to put any thing that  you don’t want people to know about and turn off your tracking      software this is the best advice I can give

 

Finger vein authentication

Hitachi’s VeinID finger vein authentication technology (PDF) captures images of the vein patterns in the user’s finger. The patterns are unique, and nearly impossible to replicate. The technology works by passing infrared light through the finger. The light is partially absorbed by the hemoglobin in the veins, which enables an image to be recorded. The system then takes about a half-second to match the user’s vein patterns to the patterns that are stored on a smart card.

The company says that the process is “remarkably accurate,” with only a 0.0001 percent chance of someone passing off their vein pattern as someone else’s. For additional security, users can also record the vein pattern in more than one finger. The system could be used on door access control units, ATMs, car doors, or PCs. In the future, it could be used on mobile phones and MP3 players, or “adapted” for driver’s licenses, ID cards, and passports.

Sophos’s Naked Security blog recently reported that Barclays has joined Japanese and Polish ATMs in adopting the VeinID system, and customers will be able to withdraw money without the need for a card or a PIN code when the technology is rolled out in 2015. Hitachi notes that biometric authentication systems still have challenges to overcome, and each has advantages and disadvantages, even the way it’s perceived by the user:

“The key with ‘biometrics’ is pin-pointing personal characteristics that are easily measured and compared, and processing the information in ways that are accurate, convenient and don’t cause undue embarrassment. Finger printing, iris scans, hand geometry and voice recognition systems are already in use, and each has its own particular set of advantages and disadvantages. Some are easier to forge, others are more expensive or cumbersome. Some are affected by the surrounding environment, others make users feel uncomfortable. “

Facial recognition

Another method of biometric authentication that sounds like something out of a science-fiction movie — or at least a detective show — is facial recognition. A page on the FBI’s website explains that facial recognition can be used both for verification and for identification, and the earliest systems, developed in the 1960s, required an administrator to locate features (eyes, ears, nose, and mouth) on photographs. From there, the system calculated distances and ratios, and compared that information to reference data.

The technology has evolved since then, and the FBI notes that today there are two predominant approaches to facial recognition: geometric, or feature-based, and photometric, or view-based. Within each method, complex algorithms are used to represent and match an individual’s face. The FBI is implementing its own facial recognition system, called Next Generation Identification, this summer, with a federal database of 50 million photos slated to made available to all fifty states by the end of the year.

Naked Security notes that some PC login systems, mobile apps, or even ATMs and payment systems can use facial recognition to authenticate users. Even Facebook uses facial recognition technology that some have noted is almost as accurate as the human brain. The Verge reported that Facebook’s DeepFace system can tell with 97 percent accuracy whether two pictures are of the same person. That’s more accurate than the FBI’s Next Generation Identification system, which, given a face, returns a ranked list of fifty possibilities and gives only an 85 percent chance of returning the suspect’s name on the list.

As the Washington Post recently reported, GM may soon offers cars equipped with facial recognition software from an Australian company called Seeing Machines. The technology is reportedly designed to detect distracted driving, and will use a system of cameras and software to note the rotation of the driver’s head and how often he blinks. Those measurements will help the system figure out if the driver is keeping his eyes on the road, or if he’s looking at his phone or even falling asleep, and the driver could be alerted or even forced to pull over. The system could also disable the vehicle if whoever is in the driver’s seat is not an authorized user, or could enable the driver to activate apps and navigation with a glance.

However, when it comes to authentication, facial recognition technology is less than perfect, and some systems can be fooled by photographs or by people who look similar, or can fail to authenticate the actual user due to a variety of factors that can change the way we look. So, like many methods of biometric authentication, some improvements need to be made before your passwords can be totally replaced.

Gesture-based authentication

Another potential authentication method to replace the password is the gesture. Many Android phones have made it possible for users to swipe a pattern to unlock their phones, and Windows 8 incorporates a system that asks users to complete swipes around a picture. However, these types of gesture authentication come with many of the same issues as passwords. People are just as unlikely to choose hard-to-guess shapes as they are to pick hard-to-guess passwords.

Voice recognition

Voice recognition technology could authenticate users based on features that are influenced by a person’s physical features, such as the airway and soft tissue cavities, and by his or her behavioral characteristics. As the FBI’s website notes, voice recognition is useful for remote authentication given that it can be completed with the use of a phone, or with the microphone on a computer. Speech samples are captured over a period of a few seconds, and analyzed with a model that monitors changes over time.

Iris recognition

Technology to scan and analyze the random patterns of the iris is a relatively new method of biometric authentication. The iris is a muscle within the eye, and regulates the size of the pupil to control how much light enters the eye. As explained on the FBI’s website, the iris’s color is based on the amount of melatonin pigment within the muscle, and while the iris’s color and structure are genetically linked, the details of its patterns aren’t. During prenatal growth, the iris develops through a process of forming and folding of the tissue membrane. Degeneration causes the pupil to open and the iris to form random, unique patterns. An individual’s irises are genetically identical but structurally unique, and can be used to recognize and authenticate a person.

The FBI’s website notes that while iris recognition uses the iris muscle to authenticate a user, a related method, called retinal recognition, uses the unique pattern of blood vessels on the retina at the back of the eye as means of identification and verification. Both methods involve capturing a high-quality image of the iris or retina, using near-infrared light to illuminate the eye.

But iris scanners have been less than seamless to implement in the past, with some prone to misidentification of users and others making it difficult for users to properly align their eyes with the device.

The future of passwords

There is a huge variety of biometric authentication methods currently being researched and tried, including DNA matching, identification using the shape of the ear, finger geometry recognition, hand geometry recognition, gait recognition, body odor recognition, and even typing pattern recognition. But many of these technologies have some distance to cover before they can be considered as a viable replacement for the traditional password.

Password systems have seen a wide variety of improvements over the years, from the implementation of now-ubiquitous “Forgot Your Password” recovery systems to two-factor authentication features that send a unique code to your smartphone for you to enter along with the password you’ve already entered on a computer. For all of those precautions, each new system comes with its own vulnerabilities, and new ways for insecure designs or plain human error to leave users’ information unsecured. And while they aren’t the most secure option, passwords right now are the simplest method of authentication available.

As technology advances and more sophisticated systems are developed for vein identification technology, facial recognition systems, and iris scans, there is considerable room for improvement. Most recognition devices for any of these methods of biometric authentication will need to get a lot smaller and a lot cheaper to become ubiquitous, and especially to integrate with consumer devices.

And perhaps most importantly, security will take on a new level of importance when it’s your blood vessel patterns and not your password that’s stored on someone’s server. A major problem with biometric authentication — and many companies’ failures to properly encrypt and authenticate the messages, content, and information that you share via their platforms — is that if a user’s credentials are compromised, they can’t be easily changed like a password. So for your eyeballs or your voice to take the place of your passwords, researchers and developers need to figure out privacy and security first.

How to protect your country and other from pandemic

The first thing the host country has a duty to protect the pandemic from reaching other country by

1. Cancelling flight / people form coming into the country that has nothing to do with fighting the crisis at hand.

2 a. Anyone that going out of the infected country weather health worker or other people that have a good reason to travel should quarantine for 11 days before leaving the country to make sure they are not infected.

2 b. and to prevent your country from facing a pandemic a total shut down of to the country is needed as soon as the infected cannot deal with the pandemic as long as it is needed to slow the rapid rate of the pandemic.

but we as a country  should not trust another country to protect us we need to put our own measure in place to protect our own people by

1. preventing people that are not national there from coming in to the country that come from the infected area

2. if any national coming into their country   in the area there the out break happen  must be quarantine for 11 days before allowing them to go their ways. their  name should be sent to every hospital just in case they happen to fall ill in the next 11 days so the can immaculately quarantine and cheek to see if they have the diseases.

3. Visas should not be issued to country where the pandemic is taking place for now

4. country the border the infected area we should keep an eye on the situation there just in case one leave their border and stare infecting people

if this proceeder was follow the chance of pandemic breaking out in many country is very small.

 

Breaking! Ebola Confirmed in US

Thomas Eric Duncan, was the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the United States, he came to came from libia and is now in critical condition in  a Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. Like I say in my heading they fail to defect and control the first every case of Ebola on us soil.

When he came to the us on September 20th five day later he came to  the hospital sick where they failed to detect he had Ebola and was sent him home four days later he came back  worst and that is when he was isolated and tested for Ebola where is was confirm

Within these those days the cdc has made many blunder not raising the alarm when he said he came from the infected region, cleaning the vomit with a power hose with no    protection to prevent the substance from making contact with him, the ambulance was not disinfected two days later, the apartment was not isolated and disinfected four days later what is why about 10 people are at “higher risk” of catching Ebola  but have shown no symptoms at the moment but and even larger number of 50 people being monitored daily, but the other 40 are considered “low risk,” said Dr. David Lakey, the commissioner of Texas department of state health services.

The nine people who had definite contact with the Ebola patient  including family      members and health care professionals have been monitored and show no symptoms or fevers, Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We have already gotten well over 100 inquiries of possible patients,” Frieden told reporters. “We’ve assessed every one of those and just this one patient has tested positive.

I expect there to be more case in America due to how the health official  has response  to their first case of Ebola and possible more people coming just like Duncan and not one is making and effort to ground all flight leaving the infected area. the Health officials did not provide details on the location of those being monitored. Monitoring includes a visit from a public health expert and temperature checks twice a day.

 

George Zimmerman is looking for a get in jail card

George  Zimmerman get him self in to trouble once again by treating to kill some one who was pointing his finger at him. This is the third time that that he has been caught in something like this one of this incidence was his own wife .

Now it seen that he has inside help because the next day he show up at the work place of the guy he was treating this time he stay at the seen police was called but no charge was filed by the   complainant but it look like the whole family is unstable and the whole family  is armed because they fear that one of the family might be kill because of what happen to Traven marten or the FbI might come to look for him to try him federal which one of the family say he might try to kill them if they do so. In conclusion the whole dam family is unstable and it would be best to stay the hell away from them.
