Understanding a Modern Moving Target Threat Model from an RF Detection Perspective

Presenter | Paul D Turner, TSS TSI
Organization | Professional Development TSCM Group Inc.
Description | Significant advancements in threat technology during the past decade have complicated the detection, capture, base analysis, and the need for a greater, more sophisticated analytical process.
In-short, we are seeing very powerful new RF based threat technology, with virtually no possibility of detection, or identification, utilizing traditional out-dated techniques, and oftentimes obsolete equipment resources, and detection strategies.
Many professional technical operators agree that the threat technology has surpassed the the ability of threat detection methods currently being utilized, to identify these new persistent threats, but still they do little to address the mostly, obsolete concepts of deployment, from a Probability of Detection (POD), suitability of equipment resources, or applied field techniques, and methodology perspective.
This session will address and define a modern moving target threat model, as well as a new TSCM due-diligence methodology, deployment strategy, and dispel the myth, that if you do nothing, something magical might just happen.
Change must be set in motion, and business models must change at every level, to meet the challenges of global economic-espionage, within the private sector, and national security apparatus.

Practical Considerations for the Detection of RF Signals of Interest in TSCM

Presenter | Robert Inkol
Organization | TBA
Description | Spectrum analysis techniques based on the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) are widely used for the detection and characterization of radio frequency signals.
For some applications, such as TSCM, the signals of interest can differ widely in their characteristics and it is important to set the signal processing parameters to achieve an appropriate balance between key performance characteristics such as frequency resolution, time resolution and spectral search speed.
This presentation is designed to provide a practical understanding of the fundamental concepts involved in the use of spectrum analyzers and more specialized receivers for TSCM.

Emerging Technical Milestones for Managed Remote Spectrum Surveillance and Monitoring (RSSM) TM

Presenter | Paul D Turner, TSS TSI
Organization | Professional Development TSCM Group Inc.
Description | Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology, at the software and hardware level, continues to dominate and change the face of the technical security industry.
The shift from out-dated old school techniques, have been replaced with a strong focus on a powerful new deployment methodology, that is firmly based on a modern moving target threat model, that significantly enhances the Probability of Detection (POD), and continues to do so (24 / 7 / 365).
This methodology has opened the door for powerful new, multiple receiver platforms, meeting the vast technical challenges head-on, with the threat of many powerful Radio-Frequency (RF) devices, and new breed of unintentional radiator threats, demanding (24 / 7 / 365) power line monitoring.
The opportunities have never been better for the technical operator, and ultimately the end-user of professional services delivery, when multiple receiver systems are deployed around a formal periodic inspection program.
There is a compelling business case for new and recurring revenue streams, resulting in exponentially higher Probability of Detection (POD), and the acquisition of actionable intelligence.
This session explores the many possible deployment scenarios and advantages, of managed Remote Spectrum Surveillance and Monitoring (RSSM) TM, from both and operator assisted mode, and for autonomous collection strategies.

13th Annual | CTSC 2018 "Bug-Off" | Expert Level |

 | Andrzej Wolczanski, TSS |
Professional Development TSCM Group Inc.
Technical Research and Standards Group (TRSG)
Although this session is open to all CTSC participants, it is designed for more advanced participants that understand the equipment resources, methods and techniques.
Participating in our competitive “Bug-Off” is an excellent way to extend your networking opportunity and perhaps gain valuable in-sight from other like-minded professional TSCM practitioners while enjoying a mildly entertaining and practical component of the conference, now 12 years in the running.
Our TSCM “Bug-off” provides a light-hearted competitive spirit and the opportunity to evaluate, and most importantly learn more about the professional level TSCM equipment resources supplied by various exhibitors and sponsoring participants.
The CTSC “Bug-off” is open to all conference participants for a chance to win prizes and personal recognition for elite standing.
Prizes, Awards, Peer Recognition, and Bragging Rights are just a few of the benefits for the participants of our TSCM competitive “Bug-off”.
The Office of Evil Intent, aka Paul D Turner, TSS TSI and Andrzej Wolczanski, TSS have spent the previous year plotting and planning challenging methods and real-world compromises for this year's event.

Technical Workshop | Part I

Detection and Identification of Emerging Radio-Frequency (RF) Signals of Interest (SOI)

Presenter: Paul D Turner, TSS TSI
Organization: Professional Development TSCM Group Inc.
Description: The ability of the technical operator to see beyond the many spectral events that dance across the spectrum, or waterfall display, is becoming a necessary skill, as the complexity of existing and emerging signal classifications appear.
TSCM is not a do it yourself project, given the reality of embedded signals, time-periodic transmitters, modern complex modulation schemes, and the use of power and frequency agile technologies.
Detection is often a difficult task for the technical operator, however, the real challenge in a modern moving target threat model, is properly identifying Signals of Interest (SOI), that by design, may be difficult to classify, without the knowledge and experience of professional technical operators.
The ability of the technical operator to understand the complexity of the ambient RF spectrum environment, and the bands, sub-bands, and signal level characteristics of signal events that both belong, or are out of band, or not characteristic within the inspected Range of Interest (ROI).
