Government agencies across the globe and their supply chains are under attack. Government servers and websites are frequent targets, putting cybersecurity expertise at a premium in the public sector. Once the perimeter is breached, lateral movement schemes spread malicious payloads and hacker access points within the perimeter that linger and allow for further exploitation. Static defenses such as signature-based anti-malware have proven to be easily overwhelmed.
Covid is here. Government has required many of its people to work from home. Sensitive and valuable Govt information is being sent and received by laptops in many homes! And Hackers are attacking home computers.
So Govt employees are accessing and storing big files with lots of personal data on them. Names, addresses, emails, phone numbers, medical conditions, family situations, passports, driving licenses, tax information – and more
And when the Govt is being hacked the political ramifications can be enormous not to mention the personal embarrassment of personal information into the public arena.
Every Government User working remotely needs Kill Net

Intelligence on the Wire (IOTW)
And then came the big breakthrough. Instead of putting only a switch on the wire, KillNet added intelligence into the KillNetSwitch. We called this Intelligence on the Wire (IOTW)
The latest KillNetSwitch has a fully configured CPU on the wire
• IOTW not only controls and monitors the computer system, but it can control and monitor the routers and other system devices.
• IOTW is completely independent of the main computer system
• IOTW means that both inwards and outwards traffic can be monitored
• IOTW means that other functions can be added
• IOTW means that the information can be monitored using AI techniques
• IOTW allows the user to scan his systems on demand or regularly
• IOTW can be programmed to ‘cut the wire’ immediately if it is attacked
• IOTW can be setup to cutoff parts of the computer system and allow others to maintain access
And every step can report to the IT manager by cell phone or by accessing a central KillNet website
All these functions can be monitored and controlled by cell phone
Intelligence on the Wire (IOTW) has turned a simple switch into a very powerful tool

KillNet Switch has been derived from the expertise of technical engineers who have several years of cyber security experience behind them. The KillNet Switch product was constructed to operate on both LAN and WAN internet providers, broadening our scope of protection. Conventional cyber security protection offers you software packages that, if you didn’t know, can just as easily hack your personal information through their firewalls. We predict that KillNet Switch will soon have the capability to protect enormous organizations and conglomerates.
Over and above these incredible features that Killnet offers you, KillNet also sends an alert to all your devices if you have been compromised in any way. It remains our responsibility to prevent hackers from retrieving information from your home. However, KillNet recommends turning off your internet whilst you’re leaving your home or sleeping to avoid hackers and ransomware attacks.
Whether it’s critical infrastructure for missions, nationwide operations, or just initially lower risk profiles for day-to-day governance work, government agencies must be prepared with robust intrusion detection and response mechanisms.
Intelligence on the Wire (IOTW) with Zeek Network Security Monitoring Tool
One tool which comes as an with your KillNet Solution is the Zeek Network Security Monitoring Tool Zeek analyses the traffic to and from the internet with your router and so with your computer system. Zeek can be used as a network security monitor (NSM) to support investigations of suspicious or malicious activity on your internet link. Zeek also supports a wide range of traffic analysis tasks beyond the security domain, including performance measurement and troubleshooting.
Zeek is more powerful and more far reaching than most network monitors. Not only does Zeek help you find malicious activity, but its other features include semantic misuse detection, anomaly detection, and behavioral analysis.
Zeek operates in near-real-time insights into network usage patterns so you (or your system) can respond almost immediately to a threat.
Furthermore Zeek produces a detailed log of all activities for your information.
The ‘normal’ implementation of Zeek in most sites is that Zeek sits on the router or the computer system which makes it observable and corruptible by hackers.
In your Kill Net implementation of Zeek, it sits on the wire! So Zeek is part of the Kill Net’s Intelligence on the Wire implementation. This makes Zeek itself safe from hackers.
When you subscribe to Zeek with KillNet, we provide you with all the support and advice that you need to ensure you are getting the best benefit from Zeek.
The first benefit a new user derives from Zeek is the extensive set of logs describing network activity. These logs include not only a comprehensive record of every connection seen on the wire, but also application-layer transcripts. These include all HTTP sessions with their requested URIs, key headers, MIME types, and server responses
In addition to the logs, Zeek comes with built-in functionality for a range of analysis and detection tasks, including extracting files from HTTP sessions, detecting malware by interfacing to external registries, reporting vulnerable versions of software seen on the network, identifying popular web applications, detecting SSH brute-forcing, validating SSL certificate chains, and much more
In your KillNet implementation of Zeek, it is part of the IOTW system (Intelligence On The Wire) and actually sits on the wire!
Zeek has a rich history stretching back to the 1990s. Vern Paxson designed and implemented the initial version in 1995 as a researcher at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). The original software was called “Bro,” as an “Orwellian reminder that monitoring comes hand in hand with the potential for privacy violations”.
LBNL first deployed Zeek in 1996, and the USENIX Security Symposium published Vern’s original paper on Zeek in 1998, and awarded it the Best Paper Award that year He published a refined version of the paper in 1999 as Bro: A System for Detecting Network Intruders in Real-Time.
Our KillNet VPN Technology Connects KillNet to KillNet
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network, and it is a tool that creates a private, secure network connection between your device and the internet. When you connect to the internet through a VPN, your online activities are encrypted and hidden from third parties, including your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This makes it difficult for anyone to track your online activities and steal your personal data.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) conceals internet data traveling to and from your device. Mobile VPN is the best VPN for android usears.
dVPN sends your data in a scrambled format (that is encryption) If anyone reads your data, they cannot understand it.
Encryption is needed because you send of personal information through the internet — whether you know it or not. This data can include but is not limited
to: passwords, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, messages, and other sensitive information.
Using a VPN mobile gives you an extra layer of security when accessing the internet from your mobile device. It also makes it more difficult for hackers to gain
access to your data.
A VPN server is a type of server that enables hosting and delivery of VPN services independent of other websites.
VPN is a combination of VPN hardware and software technologies that provides VPN clients with connectivity to a secure and/or private network, or rather, the VPN. This means that your computer is operating independently of other websites
We connect your KillNet system through our own VPN server as to maintain complete safety and privacy.
You will have a secure way of sending and receiving information.
VPN is very good for businesses who have branches or more than one location
How does a VPN work?
By routing your network traffic through the VPN host’s distant server, your true IP address is never revealed. Using a VPN when online makes the VPN server the origin of your data rather than the website you visit. In other words, neither your ISP nor any other parties will be able to monitor your online activity (including the sites you visit and the information you send and receive). Using a virtual private network (VPN) is similar to using a filter that converts all your data into nonsense. If someone did manage to steal your information, it wouldn’t help them much.
Data is encrypted safely, but deciphering it requires a secret key. Without it, a machine attempting a brute-force attack would need millions of years to crack the code. With a virtual private network (VPN), your online actions can be concealed, even when connected to a public network.
