Cyber Over Watch Troops
Cyber Overwatch Troops
By Gerald: Internt Anthropologist Think Tank
Cyber Troops need protection.
Cyber Heavy Weapons Squad.
This is a view into the Over watch functions,
for a cyber units supporting ground troops.
Much like an Air Force over watch during an operation.
Cyber over watch look over the cyber troops ( CT ) and
Ground troops ( GT ) Or the Cyber Company on patrol.
The cyber over watch team may be a small squad or
as large as a company size element.
Their function is to sense the pulse of all troops
and associated electronics.
The basic pulse function is an encrypted bios inquiry.
Is everyones pc or chip set responding, very similar to
responders in air craft.
Any one off line? Any system off line? any response
slow or lagging? Measuring the level of Bandwidth
A large drop in band withs speed may be the first indicator
of a cyber attack, dos attack etc.
The primary function of the Cyber over watch is cyber medical.
All the pulse monitoring is done in the background,
CT and GT unaware of the checks.
Overwatch is looking for signs of any attack.
and moves to place over watch offensive teams
in attack positions against any threat.
The offensive teams have a myriad of cyber Weapons at their disposal.
Their primary offensive capability is the ability to take
the threat off line.
From an individual PC to network, or a WWW hub if necessary.
While the over watch command doesn't have the capability
to take down a bot net, they are in direct contact
with those that can take out an entire bot net with one stroke,
be it 10 pcs or 100 million pc starting a DOS attack against
all 13 web n nodes.
The method is one of the Governments highest secrets,
and they dread the use of the cyber weapon as its use
will disclose its existence and possibly counters if deployed.
For taking out a PC or Network they have a multitude of choices.
Exquisite scanners looking for even obtuse exploits to penetrate
systems. Where once again they have a huge choice of types of damages
and depth of destruction.
They are even able to finesse the situation, maybe just using a pop up
on the PC that says, " You are attacking a US Military PC you have
30 seconds to turn your PC off before the US Military destroys your
PC", and then it starts a flashing 30 second count down.
At the end of 30 seconds they have a choice of options.
From just turning the PC off, to erasing the attacking software,
to formating his FAT, or actually crashing the head into the platter,
there by destroying the hard drive.
They have the capability of copying the hard drive for later
Intel assessment to stealing email pass words, for Recon squads.
In cases where they are unable to exploit the PC right away they
point a heavy dos attack against that IP, or ISP if need be.
To block the aggressors access to the Internet.
Thru the use of force multiplier programs even a small contingent
can appear the be a huge bot attack and have the force of a bot net
millions of times its actual size.
Over Watch takes DOWN any threats or forces attacking the CT or the GT.
Over Watch is mainly a protective cover, not part of the operations.
