Acting Secretary Duke Meets with Colombian Vice President Naranjo

ASHINGTON – Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke this week met with Colombian Vice President Óscar Adolfo Naranjo Trujillo in Washington, DC. Acting Secretary Duke and Vice President Naranjo discussed mutual concerns regarding coca production in Colombia, and reaffirmed their commitment to continue cooperation and information sharing. They also discussed border security, aviation security, and close cooperation with other key partners in the region on maritime activities.

“The Department of Homeland Security remains committed to working with our partners in Colombia to address illegal drug production which often funds transnational criminal organizations,” said Acting Secretary Duke. “This week, we reaffirmed our commitment to addressing this issue as well as a variety of other shared interests between our countries.”

Earlier this year, DHS hosted the Conference on Prosperity and Security in Central America which brought together a diverse group of government and business leaders from the United States, Mexico, Canada, Central America, Colombia, and other countries to address economic, security, and governance challenges and opportunities. The participants dedicated the first day of the conference to advancing prosperity and economic growth in Central America, and the second day to achieving a stable and secure region. This week’s meeting continued the discussions from that conference.

DHS and FBI Release Joint Technical Alerts on Malicious North Korean Cyber Activity

Today, DHS and FBI released a pair of Joint Technical Alerts (TA17-318A and TA17-318B) that provide details on tools and infrastructure used by North Korea to target the media, aerospace, financial, and critical infrastructure sectors in the United States and globally.

The North Korean government malicious cyber activity noted in these alerts is part of a long-term campaign of cyber-enabled operations that impact the U.S. Government and its citizens. Working closely with our interagency, industry and international partners, DHS is constantly working to arm network defenders with the tools they need to identify, detect and disrupt state and non-state actors targeting the networks and systems of our country and our allies.

Earlier this summer, DHS and FBI released a technical alert and malware analysis report (MAR) of a malware variant, known as DeltaCharlie, used to manage North Korea’s distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) botnet infrastructure.  The U.S. Government refers to all of this North Korean malicious cyber activity as HIDDEN COBRA and it is published on the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center’s (NCCIC) U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team’s (US-CERT) website at www.us-cert.gov/hiddencobra.

On a daily basis, we share information about cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and other risks and the NCCIC is our primary hub for these important activities. Specifically, it occurs through the automated sharing of cyber threat indicators; the production of analytic reports and alerts containing threat and vulnerability mitigation information; and direct exchanges with analysts in the network defense community.

With our industry and government partners, we are looking to enhance our collaboration and partnerships across the globe to counter North Korea and another state or non-state actor’s malicious cyber activity, and we hope that, over time, public information sharing – such as the report today – will become a routine component of cooperation to address shared cyber threat.

Entities that find signs of this malicious cyber activity should report it to DHS’s National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) or FBI through CyWatch or its local field offices.

TSA Should Provide PreCheck for Military Retirees

OMAHA, Neb., Nov. 27, 2017 -- Long airport security checkpoint lines are the accepted norm. But should individuals who have already been fingerprinted and passed a background check be subjected to Transportation Security Administration screening to enter the TSA PreCheck program?
Wounded Warriors Family Support supports TSA PreCheck for retired military members with a valid U.S. Department of Defense Form 2 (retired identification card) and honorably discharged veterans without having to submit another background check and pay $85.

"Every honorably discharged veteran has gone through a National Agency Check and those who have held Top Secret clearance have had a thorough months-long Single Scope Background Investigation conducted," said Col. John Folsom, USMCR (Ret.), founder and president of Wounded Warriors Family Support. "Our background checks are equal to, and in many cases exceed, the background checks TSA conducts for its PreCheck program. Many honorably discharged veterans have lost limbs. Not to extend this courtesy can cause them pain when they stand on their prosthetics as they wait in a long TSA line.
"As a retired vice admiral of the United States Coast Guard, TSA Administrator David Pekoske knows than an honorably discharged veteran is not a security risk," he said. "Honorably discharged veterans should be shown respect by being assigned a Known Traveler Number without having to go through another background check and paying a fee. It's the right thing to do for our honorably discharged and retired veterans."
TSA PreCheck is a government-sponsored program that started in October 2011. It grants approved passengers on domestic flights – and some international – to expedite screening. TSA PreCheck costs $85 for a five-year membership.
There are more than 5 million members enrolled as 42 airlines work in cooperation with TSA PreCheck at 200 airports across the U.S. Unlike the regular security line, PreCheck passengers do not need to remove their shoes, laptops, liquids, belts and light jackets, which means less time in line. In October, 97 percent of TSA PreCheck passengers waited less than five minutes in a security line, according to the TSA website.
Wounded Warriors Family Support hopes to have support from the American Legion, Marine Corps League, Non Commissioned Officers Association, Retired Military Officers Association and Veterans of Foreign Wars in this request to Pekoske and Congress.
"This is another way the American people can recognize the honorable service of our veterans and their families," Folsom said.

Amsterdam, – To help device manufacturers meet a growing demand for long-lasting low-power NarrowBand (NB) IoT modules, Gemalto and Huawei – via its semiconductor arm, HiSilicon – are working together to develop the next generation of modules that combine an extra level of security and consume very low power. By combining the expertise from both companies, these NB-IoT modules will help manufacturers reduce the cost and size of their devices, and lengthen the battery life of the devices to up to ten years. 

NB IoT has been developed to address lower bit rates and lower cost segments, and works virtually anywhere. It offers ultra-low power consumption enabling devices to be battery operated for periods of up to 10 years. Applications include smart parking sensors, intruder and fire alarms, personal healthcare appliances, tracking devices, and street lamps to name a few. According to ABI Research, NB IoT modulesconnecting objects to networks are forecast to represent over 20% of all cellular shipments by 2021. 

"2017 is the year of commercial NB IoT rollouts for us, and we will be building 30 such networks in 20 countries worldwide by the end of the year. Huawei has been a major player in this arena, and we continue to capitalize on this vast opportunity," said XiongWei, president of LTE solution, Huawei.

Inherent Resolve Strikes Target ISIS in Syria, Iraq

SOUTHWEST ASIA, Nov. 27, 2017 — U.S. and coalition military forces have continued to attack the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria yesterday, conducting 11 strikes consisting of 36 engagements Nov. 24 and 25, Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve officials reported today.

Officials reported details of the most recent strikes, noting that assessments of results are based on initial reports and adding that no strikes have yet been reported as having taken place in Syria or Iraq yesterday.
In addition, officials today reported details of a Nov. 23 strike consisting of one engagement near Abu Kamal, Syria, for which the details were unavailable in time for the most recent previous report. The strike engaged an ISIS tactical unit and destroyed an ISIS vehicle.
Strikes in Syria
On Nov. 24 in Syria, coalition military forces conducted four strikes consisting of seven engagements against ISIS targets:
-- Near Abu Kamal, three strikes engaged three ISIS tactical units and destroyed two ISIS vehicles.
-- Near Shadaddi, a strike damaged an ISIS supply route.
On Nov. 25 in Syria, coalition military forces conducted five strikes consisting of eight engagements near Abu Kamal, engaging six ISIS tactical units and destroying four ISIS vehicles and a headquarters.
Strikes in Iraq
On Nov. 24 in Iraq, coalition military forces conducted two strikes consisting of 21 engagements against ISIS targets:
-- Near Baaj, a strike engaged two ISIS tactical units and destroyed six ISIS vehicles and two ISIS-held buildings.
-- Near Mosul, a strike damaged an ISIS supply route.
No strikes were reported in Iraq for Nov. 25, officials said.
Part of Operation Inherent Resolve
These strikes were conducted as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, the operation to destroy ISIS in Iraq and Syria. The destruction of ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria also further limits the group's ability to project terror and conduct external operations throughout the region and the rest of the world, task force officials said.
The list above contains all strikes conducted by fighter, attack, bomber, rotary-wing or remotely piloted aircraft; rocket-propelled artillery; and some ground-based tactical artillery when fired on planned targets, officials noted.
Ground-based artillery fired in counterfire or in fire support to maneuver roles is not classified as a strike, they added. A strike, as defined by the coalition, refers to one or more kinetic engagements that occur in roughly the same geographic location to produce a single or cumulative effect.
For example, task force officials explained, a single aircraft delivering a single weapon against a lone ISIS vehicle is one strike, but so is multiple aircraft delivering dozens of weapons against a group of ISIS-held buildings and weapon systems in a compound, having the cumulative effect of making that facility harder or impossible to use. Strike assessments are based on initial reports and may be refined, officials said.
The task force does not report the number or type of aircraft employed in a strike, the number of munitions dropped in each strike, or the number of individual munition impact points against a target.
