Russia Taking Low-Tech Approach to Security

Russia Taking Low-Tech Approach to Security

40 years ago, the USSR and the US were still locking horns in the space race, as well as the nuclear arms race and the peace race,and in the early 70s both countries launched their first space stations known as Salyut and Skylab programs.

Every Russian knows an urban legend saying that at the time NASA spent lots of time and money to create a pen which could work in a zero-G environment. Actually, they successfully made one, which allowed their astronauts to play tic tac toe on the Skylab. In the meantime, it took 5 minutes and a few pennies for the USSR to simply issue their cosmonauts pencils.

This is a kind of approach Russia is taking today to security. Media reports say that Russia’s Federal Guard Service (FSO) wants to purchase $10,000 worth of electric typewriters and ribbons for Triumph Adlew TWEN 180 typewriters. This equipment is considered retro and can be used to prevent the distribution of secret papers. The matter is that every typewriter has its own distinct signature, so any potential whistleblower could be easily identified and handled.

Russian newspapers revealed the country’s Defense Ministry confirmed the fact that directives to the Minister are still printed on paper. It seems that although the Cold War is not back yet, paranoia in both countries is still going strong, urged by the worldwide web rather than dozens of ballistic missile submarines.

No avatarI have always wondered about the dangers of sharpening a pencil in a Zero-G environment.
The graphite shavings are conductive, what would happen if they got into the computers?
When I used to fix computers and we wanted to mess with a guy we would draw a pencil line across an IC's legs.
The line was virtually invisible but created all sorts of intermittent problems.

Terminal Tic Tac Toe??

ezkapaid avatari guess they probably don't sharpen them... just throw them away after they write whatever 10 or 20 pages with them. no graphite loose then, right? just a box of sharpened pencils, and a box for disposal. Maybe they attach them to their wrist and have caps for them too. As far as the other... a typewriter? Why not just have a mac classic or other 80's computer so you can't get on the web or use usb? print on dot matrix at least then you don't have to do it all over geez... sounds like a big waste of human resources.

It's not about being disconnected from the web or networks although that is a very good benefit.

The typewriters they are talking about leave a distinct signature, or fingerprint if you will, just like a guns barrel leaves a distinct mark on the projectile(bullet) fired out of said gun. This way if a copy of a classified document, or the actual document itself, is found in the wrong hands it can be traced back to the EXACT typewriter that was used to type it up.

That being said it still doesn't really matter cause you could just retype the document/information.
