Denial And Deception, Artificially Enhanced Stealth Malware, Stealth Clouds, Infected Clouds, Armored Clouds, “Gated,” Online Communities, A Dr. No In Cyber Space, Cyber Militias, A Dedicated Off-Net Movement are all experiencing their own versions of Moore’s Law.
The growth of the Dark Web, the emergence of a ‘Dr. No,’ in cyber space; and, an off-the-net completely militia movement may all be in the worldwide webs future. The emergence of 3-D printing, and virtual reality will lead to breath-taking advances in across virtually every major domain in our lives: health care and treatment of disease, fighting wars, leisure and transportation, finance, and so on. But, one also has to assume that the Dark Web will also evolve in ways we don’t anticipate and can’t imagine at this time.
Will we see the first Internet serial killer — who can stalk his victims from the confines of his home or an Internet café? Will a ‘Dr. No’ emerge in cyber space — threatening global economies and selling his super malware to the highest bidder? Will cyber militias — form and act on their own — without the support of the host nation; and, what do we do about it? Like the anti-tax, survivalist militia-type mentality spawn an Off-The-Net movement, dedicated to having no trace of their existence anywhere in cyber space? The cyber world is also likely to be spikey — and not all ‘animals’ on the digital farm will be equal.
And, the creation of a lethal/catastrophic Cyber Weapon Of Mass Destruction may also be lurking in the not too distant future.
