    Have you ever watched a movie where a group of unbelievably attractive looking hackers broke into some government organization by constantly typing on their keyboard like they were typing an essay? Yet according to the display they were opening and closing executable files.

    Sadly when alleged cyber-attacks occured during the South Ossetia War there were probably no fancy CGI effects showing neon blue wires interacting with each other while Scarlet Johansson with a poor Slavic accent convinces a Putin-looking Sean Penn to move all the nuclear data to a back-up server – constantly typing all the while.

    No, the reality is probably just a bunch of sweaty Russians crowded around a blinking DOS prompt. That is, until now, as Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) have developed a new cyber-attack alert system called Daedalus. And let me tell you, cyber warfare has never been sexier!


    NICT had previously set up a similar system called nicter which gives a 3D real-time display of cyber-attacks overlaid onto a 3D model of the Earth which looked pretty cool, but still not quite tinsel town caliber. Going back to the drawing board, they established a darknet observation network, but more importantly did away with the Earth model for a sleek 3D orb representation of the entire internet!

    Looking at Daedalus’ screen, the internet is the spherical mesh of blue wires in the middle. The networks that you’re monitoring appear as cool floating discs around the internet connected by blue tentacle-like beams.

    If that’s not cool enough, you’ll probably be begging for a security threat as it pops up on the floating blue discs as a Chinese character for warning (警). Western versions of the software will probably have English messages, but I as well as other Ghost in the Shell fans would advise against it for stylistic purposes.

    And while we embark on this new realm of international conflict, Michael Bay breathes a sigh of relief as his movies just got a little more realistic.

    To be honest that looks like a massive waste of time. I don't see how that helps at all.

    if far easier looking at this then a DOS window, or just text, it also keeps your attention since it looks cool, and instead of a text based system where you'd have to scroll though massive amounts a data maybe to find what you want, you can just go oh look, a red circle, CLICKY, and there's your info, in the end its more efficient since it displays less data at one time, allowing the user to concentrate on only the important data, meaning they can actually go though more info then with a text based system

    I've seen this design before, like ghost in the shell: stand alone complex or something.

    The problem is with abstracting attacks snooping into a 3d prespective is the possibility of not noticing an event which it first occurs because of the orientation in the eviroment. The whole point is to abstract the complexity like an OS to better view the behavor of a system, but with abstraction comes things that are hidden so the major problem I see is constructing a virus or worm that behaves in way for the program to not see it.

    I was under the impression it was actually a series of tubes? If that is the case, they should have used that one Windows screensaver, the pipes one.

    Neat.

    I wonder just how practical that 3D interface is, though.

    Edited:

    God dammit, this fucking huge title is starting to piss me off, and the dickhole who bought it refuses to revert it haha.

    I don't want to throw money at a damn Internet forum just to get rid of this title, but I'm honestly considering it. I can't go around posting like this, where each post takes up a fucking half page.

    I'd rather remove it completely. For people who don't have that script, it'd still be big as fuck.

    I really don't want to throw two dollars at this, but I might have to, at this rate.

    Oh look, MovieOS.
    Useful for simply displaying a WAN's status on a random monitor but otherwise totally useless.

    Edited: Actually, now that I think about that if you do admin a large corporate network and you need something to quickly glance at to see authorized and unauthorized connections, that's actually rather useful.
