BitSpray® - The Last Line of Defense

Data-Level Protection When All Else Fails

CANTON, Miss., Aug. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- After hackers blow through the concrete and Kevlar walls of a datacenter, jump over mile-high firewalls, slither under a legion of tripwires and intrusion detectors, slaughter IPsec, TLS, SSH and everything else blocking their way, and they finally burst into the Queen's Chamber where the crown jewels are stored, what do you think they find? Well, if the jewels are protected using conventional cyber-wisdom, they find and carry off neat little bundles of complete information—crown jewels by any other name.No big deal, you say with a sneer—it's all encrypted;-)

Oh really? With all the successful hackings reported today, not to mention those that go unreported, it is time to stop pretending our conventional cyber-defenses are safe and grudgingly admit three things:

1) We can't stop hackers from breaking into our datacenters; we can only keep them at bay

2) When they do break in they will carry off neat little bundles of complete information, and

3) The encryption protecting those bundles will be cracked; it's just a matter of time and horsepower

The Chinese Tianhe-2 supercomputer runs at 33.86 petaflops; that's 33.86 quadrillion floating point operations per second. So how long do you think it would take that behemoth to crack a 48-byte password and initialization vector (NIST standard AES-256 encryption)?  "No time at all" is the correct answer, even without help from rainbow tables and globally shared hacking tools freely flowing over the internet today. And hey, if one Tianhe won't do the trick, they can always cluster a few together and really have some fun—time and horsepower.

So how do we stop this madness and win WW-III? The answer is stop solely relying on time-honored best practices solutions (a.k.a. more of the same). It is time to get down and dirty and practice irregular asymmetric cyber-warfare. To win this war we need to radically change the Rules of Engagement.

BitSpray® is a game-changer technology that entirely removes complete information from the equation. It also removes users from the equation. Hackers can't access what they can't find, and they can't steal what isn't there. BitSpray Advanced Data Dispersion Technology™ (ADDT™) is the last line of defense. It is a whole new battle hackers never had to fight before. After hackers defeat everything conventional cyber-wisdom can throw at them, they encounter the BitSpray share volume and the power of the Data Shell Game™. BitSpray mathematically disassembles information into incomplete subsets of "data primitives." Then it sprays that slurry out to multiple geographically separate storage locations in such a manner that no compete dataset ever travels over a single network path, nor is a complete dataset ever stored in a single location. BitSpray is a patented ultra-secure, ultra-persistent, computer-to-computer, cryptographic, communication network technology that forces hackers to break into multiple datacenters in order to find enough share volumes to reassemble an original file. Then the Data Shell Game forces them to hunt through a labyrinth built from zillions of bundles of bit-soup that all look alike, inside and out. And even if a group of crafty hackers do accomplish this seemingly impossible feat, that's where the real battle begins. Then they have to cut through all the FIPS-compliant and proprietary BitSpray crypto-juju protecting those volumes. Better pack a lunch for that, and don't forget to include a few energy bars because they also have to reverse-engineer the BitSpray software, which won't be a cakewalk since it is deployed as a virtual thin client.

Conventional cyber-wisdom protects networks; BitSpray does not. Instead, It empowers data to protect itself. It is a com­plete client-based, data-level, information protection system for data-in-motion and data-at-rest that has the power to thwart Chinese hackers and WikiLeaks contributors with a single low-cost solution. It works on or off the cloud and can be custom-designed to create hybrid environments. When the teachings of the BitSpray patent art are practiced, it becomes a near-impossibility for data transmitted and stored in a BitSpray network to ever be lost, stolen, vandalized, hacked or cracked. Information is ever present and always available. Intru­sions like man-in-the-middle attacks and denial of service attacks become exercises in futility, and natural and manmade disasters have little to no effect. There is a 3-minute video entitled How BitSpray Works at:  www.bitspray.com.

— BitSpray has the potential to become the standard model for securely storing, sharing, and transmit­ting data in the 21st Century. We are actively seeking qualified people who can make that a reality.

About BitSpray Advanced Data Dispersion Technology (ADDT): On March 18, 2009, during a business meeting in Washington, DC, Walt Runkis had a vision of the BitSpray Network. It wasn't the complete image, only the trunk and parts of a foot and ear of an elephant coming out of the fog. He filed a provisional patent application in May. The regular application was filed a year later by DLA Piper (world's most prestigious intellectual property firm) and issued April 15, 2014 (8,700,890). Piper also filed two additional ADDT-related applications. ADDT now comprises seven major inventions, plus a number of supporting inventions and trade secrets. The major seven are: BitSpray® ADDT (core tech­nology), Data Shell Game™, BitSpray Over Powerline (BoP™), Globally Dispersed Virtual Data­center™ (GDVD™), BitSprayOTF™, Dispersed Digital Rights Management (DDRM™), and BitSprayMail™.

About Walt Runkis, Chairman and CEO/CTO at BitSpray Corporation: Walt is a true Renaissance man: scientist, inventor, artist, published author and serial entrepreneur. He has two patents in the fields of immuno-chemistry and cellular nutrition. In addition, he has one patent issued, one allowed, plus two pending in the field of network cybersecurity. His eclectic technical background includes the disciplines of real-time telemetry and control programming, software applica­tion development, broadband over powerline architecture, video-on-demand streaming, and dispersed cryptographic network architecture (a discipline he invented). Walt was a decorated Sergeant E-5 in the US Marine Corps and served in Vietnam from June 1965 to July 1966 as a Marine ASRaT.
