This is THE toolbox, available in both long and short versions, we recommend you start with the long and then rapidly migrate to the short.  Arno is THE “dean” of OSINT for government, and the “dean” of the advanced librarian discovery movement.



We strongly endorse Arno Reuser as an individual, and recommend his training offerings available directly from him.  By-pass the external vendor training link at the Repertorium and send him a direct email.

Robert Garigue: Truth & Trust as Security Requirements

This is the first and only time we have seen truth & trust properly identified as fundamental to security.  The only other related works are those of Dr. Col Max Manwaring, whose edited work, The Search for Security–A U.S. Grand Strategy for the Twenty-First Century makes the point that legitimacy is the core value enabling peace and prosperty; and the Nobel Prize awarded in the 1990's to the scholar that demonstrated that trust lowers the cost of doing business.

Cyber-space, if it is to contribute to the evolution of humanity, must be imbued with truth & trust.  THIS is the core focus of any information security program in support of information operations, NOT “mere” “control” of potential data loss or “defeat” of potential enemies.  We sorely miss Robert Garigue–he was illuminating a very righteous path, and to our knowledge, none have stepped forth to fill his shoes.
