Real-world advice on how to be invisible online from “the FBI’s most wanted hacker” (Wired). Be online without leaving a trace. Your every step online is being tracked and stored, and your identity literally stolen. Big companies and big governments want to know and exploit what you do, and privacy is a luxury few can afford or understand.

In this explosive yet practical book, Kevin Mitnick uses true-life stories to show exactly what is happening without your knowledge, teaching you “the art of invisibility” – online and real-world tactics to protect you and your family, using easy step-by-step instructions.

Reading this book, you will learn everything from password protection and smart Wi-Fi usage to advanced techniques designed to maximize your anonymity. Kevin Mitnick knows exactly how vulnerabilities can be exploited and just what to do to prevent that from happening.

The world’s most famous – and formerly the US government’s most wanted – computer hacker, he has hacked into some of the country’s most powerful and seemingly impenetrable agencies and companies, and at one point was on a three-year run from the FBI.

An Invisible Danger on the RiseYou eat organic and non-GMO food. You only drink purified water. You take care of yourself and your family’s health. But could there be a silent, invisible danger causing potential harm to you and your loved ones?There could.

And it’s called electromagnetic frequency (EMF) radiation and it’s one of fastest growing health issues facing our society. EMF radiation produced by modern technology such as 5G, cell phones, tablets, laptops, Wi-Fi, and smart meters is an emerging health threat, and we are all guinea pigs in a giant experiment with many unknown consequences.

But Aren’t These Technologies Regulated and Safe? Surely the government and other regulatory agencies make sure these technologies are completely safe before they are approved for wide-spread use, right?Think again. Ninety-five percent of American adults use cell phones regularly.

Most households have Wi-Fi. And even schools are increasingly becoming dependent on wireless devices. And yet none of these technologies have been proven safe to humans for long-term exposure. In fact, science confirms that the EMF emitted from common electronic devices can cause definite biological changes in the body, and mounting research has already shown it can lead to a long list of health concerns some of which can be pretty serious.

Back in my day, radios came with a CW key and a frequency knob, and that was all we needed. Every Old Ham CurmudgeonOK, that’s probably a slight exaggeration, but radios were a lot simpler in the distant past, when everything was station-to-station, and most communications were some flavor of HF.

Nowadays, we have HF, VHF, UHF, digital modes, CW/SSB/AM/FM/MW, repeaters with offsets, repeaters with tones, User IDs, reflectors, talk groups, and who-knows-what coming down the road for next year. There are a lot of modes, tones, offsets, and little nit-picky details that have to go into our radios before we can even make a call.

On the other hand, radios, especially handheld models, continue to get smaller, lighter, and generally have fewer physical buttons and controls. This is good in that it keeps costs down, adds to durability, and allows for waterproofing, but it doesn’t make programming them any easier.

Fortunately, we have computers to handle all the programming stuff for us. Just hook the radio up to the computer, enter in all your information, transfer the frequency and channel data into the radio, and you’re good to go. Sounds simple, doesn’t it?

5G Radio Access Network Architecture: The Dark Side of 5G (Wiley – IEEE)

Author: by Sasha Sirotkin
Wiley-IEEE Press
English
448 pages

View on Amazon

Written by industry insiders with state of the art research at their fingertips, this book describes the Radio Access Network (RAN) architecture, starting with currently deployed 4G, followed by the description of 5G requirements and why re-thinking of the RAN architecture is needed to support these.

Based on these considerations, it explains the 5G RAN (also referred as NG-RAN) network architecture, defined in 3GPP, O-RAN and Small Cell Forum. The aim is not merely to cover relevant standards and technologies as a purely academic exercise (although a significant part of the book is dedicated to these), but to augment these by explanations about why certain standards decisions have been made and how various NG-RAN architecture options can be deployed in real networks.

With 5G deployments coming up, there is a desire to re-think the RAN architecture to ensure 5G networks can deliver the promised throughput and low latency KPIs in a sustainable fashion. Furthermore, there is a desire (at least from some companies) to change the proprietary nature of the RAN.
