It's pretty easy to put together a litany of instances in which the national security of the United States has
been compromised by hackers, many of them nation-state sponsored.
July 13, 2018: Twelve Russian agents were indicted for hacking with a view to compromising the November 2016
June 8, 2018 headline in the Washington Post: "China hacked a Navy contractor and secured a trove of highly sensitive data on submarine warfare".
October 25, 2017, Reuters reported: "Russian government-backed hackers stole highly classified U.S. cyber secrets in 2015 from the National Security Agency after a contractor put information on his home computer".
Add to this the massive leaks of National Security Agency secret information, stolen and dumped for public viewing by
a group called the Shadow Brokers.
And, oh yes, the Security and Exchange Commission's little "problem" in 2017.
And ... WikiLeaks, anyone?
In all of the above, U.S. government information was the primary target.
China routinely steals U.S. technology, either by hacking or by opening the vast Chinese market to firms in return
for "voluntary" transfer of corporate secrets. Theft from our high tech companies erodes our nation's competitive edge, and therefore
constitutes a national security problem.
Extreme Encryption was described in the November 2017 patent application as "a method and system of synchronous encryption to render computer files and messages impervious to pattern recognition and brute force attacks". It is designed to ensure the greatest possible privacy for our national data.
The design brings to fruition seven goals listed on the home page. Here they are again:
Unlike the CYBERIAN™ and CYBERIAN™ TIGER products,
there are no free trials of Extreme Encryption. As a matter of social responsibility Marpex Inc. chooses
to make Extreme Encryption available only to U.S. government agencies and to organizations either sponsored by a
government agency or carrying out contracts on
the government's behalf.
