Cyber Security for Maritime ICT

Dec 23rd, 2013 by admin | 0

We all know how important cyber security is while using your smart phone or tablet to shop or bank online(1). This is even more important when you use a public WiFi hot spot or even your home or business WiFi network, as wireless networks are inherently insecure.

So what do you do when you are on a ship, in the middle of the ocean or even in port? Surprisingly, the current answer is literally “next to nothing”.

The Problem

Port ICT security was first mentioned in a 2007 report by the UN entitled “Good Practices in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Applications in Seaports in ESCWA Member Countries”.(2) It is even more surprising how many seaports have still not implemented any technology or are not using any guidelines to address the threats in maritime ICT 6 years after the report was published. Astonishingly a 2011 report from The European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) stated that even the “awareness on cyber security needs and challenges in the maritime sector is currently low to non-existent”(3)

The problem only increases on board ships that in recent years have been subject of piracy that have cost billions of dollars. According to a 2011 “One Earth Future Foundation Working Paper” “maritime piracy is costing the international economy between $7 to $12 billion, per year.”(4) The World Bank reports “Somali pirates cost global economy ‘$18 billion a year” as shippers are forced to change trading routes and pay higher insurance premiums.”(5)

Pirates, drug smugglers and organized crime are well aware of the security gaps present in the marine ICT environment and are becoming very sophisticated in their efforts to exploit the weakness. This is very evident in the recent “cyber-attack on the Belgian port of Antwerp”(6) “which (bore) an uncanny resemblance to the recent” “attacks on UK banks.”(7).

With increasing technological advances and reliance on those including mandates(8) within the maritime industry it would seem common sense to implement an ICT policy and security in ports and on board the ships responsible for keeping the global economy moving as “around 90% of world trade is carried by the international shipping industry.”(9)

“pirates need to acquire information about possible targets”.
“pirates target” “frequent use of unsecured radio”.
Information And Communication Technology, Security Matters And Maritime Piracy In Contemporary Africa

One Potential Solution

One answer is the Secure Communications Hub (SCH) developed by a U.S. company specializing in maritime security called Container Security Logistics, LLC.

The “SCH” is a stand-alone communications hub that acts as a repeater, transmitter and signal booster for their Advanced Logistics Management Device (ALMD) designed to track shipping container movements worldwide. The company recognized the need for secure communications in relaying confidential manifest information and security alerts to government law enforcement or regulatory agencies when dangerous, restricted or illegal cargo is detected within a container. This includes Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive (CBRNE) “items”.

The “Hub” is encased in a ballistic material and is secure from electronic attempts to scan the device in an attempt to gather information or physically breech the case in compliance with current DoD 5200 and FIPS 140-3 L4 standards.

A Hub when coupled together with other ALMD’s or other devices such as radios creates what CSL calls a “Secure Authorized Local Area Network” or SeaLan©.
Using the Hub as an ICT portal, Internet traffic and communications (Marsat, Inmarsat, etc.) would route through a dedicated SCH to create a SeaLan.

Developed communication protocols further act to secure transmissions by internally generating passwords and encryption schemes at different levels and times during the communication for “always on” VSAT, standard VHF and could also be used to secure all shipboard radio transmissions.

Internet devices routed through the SCH could be offered a second secure hub at critical system interfaces as simply as a plugging into a SeaLan network USB port.

Standard email & documents such as manifests etc., are compressed and can be sent over the Internet wireless as burst transmissions that if intercepted appear to be static or popcorn noise.

The Hub contains an advanced non GPS dependent positioning system and offers a battery back up that enables it to act as a redundant positioning and communications center in the event of a catastrophic systems failure on board the ship.

The Hub also acts as a firewall for attempted hacking or monitoring attempts and is a strong and effective defense against jamming technologies and GPS and GIS spoofing.

It creates a system use profile to form a “norm” for standard and day to day operations and will recognize something out of the norm and inform authorized systems administrators on and off the ship.

Spoofing and jamming rely mainly on signal identification and frequency matching, by employing spread spectrum security codes, frequency hopping and modulation the ability to lock onto match or emulate a frequency is virtually impossible.

The SCH can be installed on ships, in port facilities and on communication towers. Hubs recognize each other and can form an ancillary SeaLan if allowed or authorized to do so. Likewise that activity can be restricted.

“True biometric authentication is the “holy grail” of credential management. Uniquely identifying an individual and authenticating access based upon criteria that cannot be duplicated virtually guarantees network and facility security.”
James Childers / CEO – Artemis Solutions Group, a Division of iQBio, Inc.

Another Layer of Security

For critical systems, strategic and tactical applications CSL has developed a secure biometric identification credential they call “BioID”.

The credential uses multiple biometric traits including a novel chemical identifier fingerprint they refer to as “Virtual DNA”. The credentials are manufactured in a secure facility with encrypted lot numbers using random UV spectrum micro laser etching. The authenticity of each credential is held internally until activated, in correct sequence and by the proper “assigned” device. Once completed, the credential is then authorized and authenticated securely. This renders them unique unto each other and impervious to counterfeiting.

Used in concert with the Hub, the entire communications system becomes secure as you may limit or allow access to specific persons, at specific times, and even to designated Internet addresses or radio frequencies.

The Bottom Line:

We know the lack of Maritime ICT security is a problem that exists. We know that ”the problem” ultimately directly and indirectly affects and costs “us”, the worldwide consumers billions of dollars annually. We know that “it” affects 90% of world trade.
We have identified one mitigating solution.

All this asks the question, why isn’t more being done to reduce the risks?

GateKeeper USA, Inc. Open Letter To Shareholders

Jan 28th, 2013 by admin | 0

ROCKVILLE, MD, Tuesday, January 29, 2013 – GateKeeper USA Inc. (OTC: GTKP) today provides the following open letter to shareholders:

Obtaining financing necessary to commercially launch GateKeeper’s products has been and continues to be the primary focus of the Company. The Company had recently announced the engagement of the Investment Banking firm of Saratoga Capital as the Company’s exclusive representative as it relates to the Company’s current and future financing needs. Kevin Tingley, CEO of Saratoga Capital recently stated that Saratoga Capital is well positioned to secure the funding needs of Gatekeeper USA, Inc. Saratoga is confident that the current prospects at the table are in the middle of their due diligence process and are expected to close in the near future. Two of the potential candidates are considering direct investment and/or joint venture opportunities. Both of these entities currently have a market capitalization greater than $1 Billion.

GateKeeper USA is very excited and looking forward to the commercial launch of its CAMS (Container Automated Monitoring System) products. The Company is currently negotiating several ‘value added’ reseller Agreements with shippers in Ghana, Egypt, South Africa, Vietnam, and India. Additionally, the company has opened discussions with a Southeast Asian financial conglomerate for a prospective OEM (original equipment manufacturer) agreement. In addition, the Company has received significant unsolicited interest for the products and the Company is confident that it will be able to secure several of these opportunities immediately, following the closing of funding, as reflected in the Company’s Business Plan.

Based on recent discussions with DHS (US Department of Homeland Security), the Company anticipates that there will be new requirements announced as it relates to the implementation of Container Security Devices that will be extremely favorable with regard to GateKeeper’s product line.

GateKeeper’s CAMS device remains the only device that can scan and alert in real time, 24/7, through the shipping sequence from initial loading of the container, its conveyance through the port of departure and throughout the entire voyage to final destination. If there are any potential threats or anomalies that should cause an alert, there will be a notification within seconds. The insurance industry has already expressed interest in CAMS because of its ability to also identify and alert for the presence of e.coli, salmonella, and other food contaminants in a refrigerated container, even with just trace amounts in nanograms.

The technologies deployed in GateKeeper’s security devices have already been proven and are unparalleled in the ability to alert for weapons grade Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive (CBRNE) threats when compared to any other container security devices currently in the marketplace. CAMS was also successfully field tested by an independent third party group.

Everyone at the Company is highly dedicated and consistently strives to advance the mission of GateKeeper USA, Inc. to establish revenues and to continuously increase shareholder value. As always, the Board of Directors and Management would like to express our thanks to you, our shareholders, for your continued support of our Company.

US Lawmakers Warning of Dirty Bomb Threat to US Ports

Jan 9th, 2013 by admin | 0

ROCKVILLE, MD, January 9, 2013 – GateKeeper USA Inc. (OTC: GTKP) announced today that in a recent Bloomberg article, it was reported by Jeff Bliss that the US Backs Off All Cargo Scanning Goals. As reported by CBP (Customs & Boarder Protection), officials’ port X-ray and Gamma-ray machines were only able to facilitate scanning 4.1% of the millions of containers that arrive in US ports each year. That percentage is consistent over the last several years. Even though DHS has publically admitted that with the utilization of existing technologies 100% screening of incoming containers would be nearly impossible, lawmakers continue to favor the mandate and stated that they are concerned about terrorists detonating a dirty bomb at a port, killing workers and rendering the facility and surrounding areas uninhabitable for years. Stephen Flynn, founding co-director of the George Kostas Research Institute for Homeland Security at Northeastern University in Boston, stated that, “So much commerce flows through ports that any interruption stemming from an attack would reverberate throughout the worldwide supply system”. The US Congressional Budget Office estimated that a yearlong shuttering of the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles would cost $70 Billion, or as much as .55% of gross domestic product.

As reported in the Washington Post this past summer, the Department of Homeland Security has failed to meet the legal deadline for scanning incoming maritime cargo containers for radioactive materials. In a July 15, 2012 article, Douglas Frantz stated that DHS says monitors scan containers for radiation after they arrive at U.S. ports. But experts say the monitors at U.S. ports are not sophisticated enough to detect nuclear devices or highly enriched uranium, which emit low levels of radiation.

Containers often sit for days awaiting radiation checks. The Government Accountability Office has warned that a nuclear device could be detonated while at a port, causing billions of dollars in damage in addition to the loss of life. Estimates of damage caused by a nuclear detonation at a major port range from tens of billions of dollars to $1 trillion.”

According to Berg Insights, there were over 130,000 different cargo and port security devices sold in the first part of 2012 alone, all hoping to capture a portion of a huge multi-billion dollar international market. Steve Vito, a partner in UpsonVito LLC, said in a statement on Jan. 3rd, “Sixty-three major US ports have technology-driven infrastructure improvement projects worth over $46 billion slated for the next five years.” With the exception of CAMS, the entirety of the devices devoted to CBRNE (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear & explosive) detection, require the use of multiple devices and applications to either detect or alert only after a container has reached its destination port.

Failure to detect CBRNE material is a breach that cannot be tolerated, and the CAMS device from Gatekeeper USA answers that challenge since it is the ONLY device that is capable of DETECTION and NOTIFICATION of the presence of contraband IMMEDIATELY upon activation. To date, Gatekeeper USA’s CAMS device is the only known device that has the ability to scan the interior of a shipping container 24/7 and will signal alerts in real time from the moment it is loaded and throughout its overseas journey until it is shipped inland and unloaded at its final destination. Gatekeeper’s CAMS devices can meet the mandate from DHS making 100% screening possible, and prevent an attack on US soil.

CAMS Can Fill Void Left by Administration’s Decision to Cancel Nuclear Detection Program

Aug 23rd, 2011 by admin | 0

ROCKVILLE, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– On July 29th the New York Times reported that the US Administration has cancelled its nuclear weapon detection program for port scanning of cargo containers due to ineffectiveness and false positive alerts. GateKeeper USA’s (OTC: GTKP.PK) CAMS device (Container Automated Monitoring System) is the ready solution to fill the void created by the halted A.S.P. program, install effective automatic screening of cargo containers, facilitate efficient supply chain transport, alleviate cargo traffic congestion through CSI compliant ports, and ensure compliance with Public Law and the CSI.

The recent announcement by the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office of DHS that their ongoing program of equipping ports across the country with Advanced Spectroscopic Portal monitors is being discontinued will render compliance with Public Law 110-53 virtually impossible. PL 110-53 mandates inspection and confirmation of safety of contents of all containers shipped into the United States beginning March, 2012. Delaying that mandate raises the risk of a non-compliant cargo container entering the supply chain, leading to a potentially catastrophic disruption of commerce and places at-risk, public safety and critical infrastructures.

GateKeeper USA has previously announced 3rd party validation of the superior detection capabilities of its proprietary CAMS for CBRNE [Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, Explosive], which demonstrated that the technology inherent in its CAMS device exceeds the requirements set forth in the law, and confirms that the false-positive problem affecting competing devices currently being implemented is not an issue for CAMS. Additionally, CAMS has features not available with any other device, including video and GPS real time monitoring and detection of spoilage in perishable cargo, which are particularly appealing to large scale shippers (retailers) with a need to track in excess of one million containers each. Adoption of this technology by such shippers will serve to increase efficiency and security throughout the entire supply chain on a worldwide basis.

As GateKeeper’s approach to compliance with PL 110-53, the Rotterdam Rules and the Safe Port Act can be compared to how vehicular security safety rules are enforced, the use of CAMS in containers can potentially save shippers thousands of dollars annually in port delays, insurance liability, and re-routing costs for containers denied unloading privileges due to non-compliance. Additionally, CAMS can help eliminate a significant portion of the financial and manpower burden on the Federal Government to conduct physical scans, since CAMS creates electronic manifest and security data scan updates that are sent to the destination port’s Portmaster in real time, well in advance of the ship’s arrival. In this manner, any WMD threat can be alerted and dealt with before the ship has arrived. This protocol keeps any host country’s harbors safer than the riskier method of scanning containers already on the nation’s waters and soil.
