NSA Chief Hacker Explains How To Avoid NSA Spying

techlog360.com [cached]

Rob Joyce, the head of the National Security Agency's Tailored Access Operations unit or let say NSA chief hacker, give some advice to a roomful of computer security professionals and academics how to keep people like him and his elite corps out of their systems.
NSA's Tailored Access Operations [TAO]-the government's top hacking team who identifies, monitors, infiltrates, and gathers intelligence on computer systems being used by entities foreign to the United States. It has been active since at least circa 1998. Rob Joyce has been working with the NSA for more than 25 years and became head of the TAO division in April 2013. Joyce noted that malware tools have become difficult to detect, with today's threats coming from people who know their stolen data begins losing its value the moment they are discovered. He also pointed out that many of these malware tools are relatively simple pieces of code, because it's distressingly easy to trick users into downloading and activating them.

"If you really want to protect your network you have to know your network, including all the devices and technology in it," Joyce said. "In many cases we know networks better than the people who designed and run them." To protect against this, admins need to lock things down as far as possible; whitelisting apps, locking down permissions, and patching as soon as possible, and use reputation management. If a seemingly legitimate user is displaying abnormal behavior, like accessing network data for the first time, chances are they have been compromised, he said. Reputation-based tools are particularly useful against malware, Joyce explained. Signature-based antivirus won't protect you against a unique piece of attack code, but when used in conjunction with reputation databases it can be effective - if code or a domain hasn't been seen before there's a high chance it's dodgy. Joyce stressed that off-site backups are more important than ever for big networks, because nation-state hackers are sometimes interested in destroying data, not just copying it. He cited cases where NSA hackers have performed penetration testing, issued a report on vulnerabilities, and then when they go back two years later to test again found the same problems had not been fixed. When the NSA hacking squad comes back, he said, the first thing they do is investigate previously reported flaws and it's amazing how many remain un-patched even after the earlier warning.

Last year, Rob Joyce, the head of the National Security Agency's elite hacking group Tailored Access Operations, downplayed the importance of zero-days in a Usenix Enigma keynote, saying, "Take these big, corporate networks, these large networks, any large network-I will tell you that persistence and focus will get you in, will achieve that exploitation, without the zero-days," Joyce said.
