So I learned a pretty tough lesson today. I was doing some research for a project at work (which was going to be the original topic of today’s post) on which required me to setup a SOCKs proxy through AWS. I logged onto AWS, configured a small instance and went to spin it up when I got an error message saying that I didn’t have permissions to do this.
I know it’s a few days late (sorry, been busy) but I would like to welcome the newest group of 170As to join the Corps.

Late last week HRC released MILPER message 18-264 which announced applications for the Computer Network Operations Development Program (CNODP). For those of you not familiar with it, CNODP is the Army’s school for training future cyber tool developers.
The other day a friend of mine shared a link to a new academic paper that was just released by a couple of researchers at the University of Cambridge. The team, Alexander Vetterl and Richard Clayton, wanted to see if they could create a technique to identify publicly accessible honeypots without having to actually interact with them.
Whenever the Army creates a new Military Occupational Specialty (MOS), they have to fill it with bodies initially that aren’t actually the MOS. In late 2013 the Army graduated its first class of the new 25D Cyber Network Defender MOS. Shorty there after, the 25D, were placed into the unit COMSEC vaults to do a job that they were never designed to do.
