New technologies: the complaints of anti-terrorist judges – Next INpact

After the attacks of November 13, a monitoring mission of the state of emergency was introduced in the Senate. On this occasion, several anti-terrorist judges reported on problems in their daily lives to technological developments.

In this exchange organized on December 9, and now transcribed on the Senate website, Laurence Le Vert, first vice president of instruction at the anti-terrorist branch and security breaches in the State High Court of Paris, and David Benichou, Vice President of the instruction to the anti-terrorist branch and breaches State security in Paris Court thus expressed their complaint.

Changes in technology problem, describes the magistrate. For the jihadists, it is a weapon of war. For us it is a risk of destruction of our procedures . ” Why ? Just because “ most of the evidence comes from various media phones tablets , hard drives, DVD, keys USB and SD cards as well as internet and telephone interceptions flow . ” However, the Code of Criminal Procedure obliges “ the availability of the entire contents of the file to the defense of the parties ,” the trial record to be “ any full time , readable and accessible.

The interception of trade, the flow and inventory

Another concern highlighted by his colleague: the question judicial interceptions, which allows the judge to wiretap a telephone or an electronic voucher (email, etc.). These interceptions are interested only future stream, not to the existing stock.

For a judge can already take note of mails sent or received, so it is imperative switch to the search, which is anything but discreet. “ This means preventing the person and achieve data entry in his presence! (…) The seizure of electronic correspondence already arrived can only be done as search eliminates any privacy in the survey, as required by law to prevent raided and allow him to attend this operation, or to appoint representatives .

The problem with Gmail and Hotmail

Similarly, when the targeted person uses a remote account. David Benichou plays recalls that Article 57-1 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, which conditions the remote search the existence of international agreements signed by France with other host countries. However, “ Gmail or Hotmail account is not located in France and no international agreement authorizes extraterritorial data entry. This requires a request for Mutual Legal Assistance, which would place us in time irreconcilable with the investigation. And the lawyers know better and better argue the lack of international agreement …

The judge suggested a reform track:” line entry matches past interceptions over that of the coming matches, even provide a grandfathering period, why not modeled on the prescription . ” For him, in fact, “ This is the same type of infringement of privacy: the safeguards that apply to one apply to the other .” The idea did not fall in deaf ears since Philippe Bas, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has already filed a bill against terrorism in particular aimed to create “ an autonomous system Entry email data, independent of the search, if the email address is already the subject of an interception of electronic correspondence . ” Adopted, the text would allow judicial police officers and agents “ access, anywhere, digital correspondence sent or received.

Two legal Trojan horses harnessed to the Ministry Justice

The capture data remotely raises difficulties. Since LOPPSI 2 of March 14, 2011, the investigating judge may, after consulting the prosecutor, by reasoned order authorizing officers and agents of the judicial police “ to set up a technical device for the purpose, without their consent, to access, in all places, to computer data, save them, keep them and pass them as they are displayed on a screen for the user of an automated processing system data or such that are introduced by the character input . ” Only these Trojans gallop especially in Dalloz codes, at least in the judges offices. David Benichou explains the reason: “ we can rely only tools previously authorized by a specific commission ANSSI “(see on this, our news).

It reveals that only one horse Tro r ie” legal “was authorized then two since 2014 … It’s very little or nothing since “ the Ministry of Justice still has not made notr e available ” laments the anti-terrorist judge . And it is not certain that the idea was welcomed by the Ministry of the Interior: “ The intelligence services monopolize the tools and do not put them at our disposal, for fear of disclosure see “continues David Benichou. “ Yet they have a very short lifespan. Unlike the cons-intelligence, the fight against terrorism is primarily a legal problem: we have a constant operational need of these.

What is the point of giving the judge in the law, investigative techniques, but not to give them the means to implement them? “chips away even the magistrate. Senator Philippe Bas has again taken his pen to inject these suggestions in its draft law against terrorism. He wants judges to make use of experts or technical assistance centers (CTA) in order to design these Trojans.

The safe future draft government law

In government, one of the complaints has also been heard in a text written after the events of November 13.

In outline contained December 23 by Bernard Cazeneuve, and Christiane Taubira, it is thus planned to allow “ Interception of already archived messages ” indicates the document. Other measures on the fire include the use of IMSI catcher from the stage of the investigation or trial, at least in terms of organized crime, in addition to the sound, the setting of images, the capture of data flagrancy or preliminary investigation, and a strengthened communication right into the hands of TRACFIN targeting groups responsible for ensuring interoperability and security of payments by credit card.

Spicee, French pioneer of web-documentary – Cross

There Spicee born six months, the leading independent web-tv dedicated solely to reporting and documentaries.

You have five, fifteen or thirty minutes before you? You want to meet Namibia, “ the only female boxer in Cuba ” explore the beginnings of the Burmese fashion or spend an immersion week in Syria with jihadist fighters? Here is part of the program concocted by the team of first web-tv dedicated to documentary, born in France in September 2015

Braver “kilometer from the law.” – Precept in use by TV news to mean that the death of a neighbor is worth more in terms of audience ratings than a hundred people on the other end of the earth – by offering stories from around the world, such is the challenge of Spicee. The media, which in many ways is similar to the project of the magazine XXI, refuses to advertising to maintain its autonomy and offers a subscription to € 9.90 per month.

” The TV is ancient history “

The idea of ​​a documentary devoted exclusively to media, germinated in the summer of 2014 the head of Antoine Robin, former CEO of Havas production and immediately seduced Jean-Bernard Schmidt, former managing editor of magazines at M6. Very quickly “ in less than eight months ” Spicee takes shape. A speed that Jean-Bernard Schmidt described as necessary: ​​” The digital world is the Grand Bazaar. We wanted to create a non-exhaustive benchmark of excellence . ” Considering that “ TV is ancient history “, the duo pursues a clear objective: taking the digital bandwagon and conquer the Web-documentary market in France abroad.

Practical, Spicee just settle down in elegant “open space” in the heart of the 11 th district of Paris. The construction, which has a dozen people mostly in their thirties, works there “ streaming, day and night ,” says Jean-Bernard Schmidt. This installation closes the first chapter of early Spicee “ in start-up mode in a cellar ” and leaves room for new projects. “ We will open in January our first overseas platform ” ad cofounder.

While Spicee has not yet celebrated its first anniversary and has barely completed a fundraising of € 1.2 million, it is already crucial to the team of “ become a global brand, but with French know-how in documentary-making . “

A surprisingly popular model by the generation Y

The team of Spicee does not intend to waste time. And for good reason: the first results “ are very encouraging s” according to Jean-Bernard Schmidt. Spicee expects a turnover of € 500,000 for the first year and totals almost 1000 subscribers and 5000 content purchases by unit. But without advertising, subscriptions are not enough to return it “pure player”. Spicee proposes Topics foreign television channels. For now, a prestigious circle with Al Jazeera, Radio Canada or Germany’s ZDF has acquired stamped content.

A quick time which certainly match the fast pace of digital but also the influx of proposals in terms of reporting. “ There is a strong power in the world of documentary television can no longer absorb ,” enthuses Jean-Bernard Schmidt. Far from being confined to the immediacy of the click, the younger generation is paradoxically fond of long formats, on the side of journalists and the public. A surprise for the founders of Spicee themselves. “ While our initial target was 30-45 years, 30% of our subscribers are under 30 years. “

An editorial also” spicy “qu’engagée

And the” spice “of topics also stands Spicee . Based on the agency Babel Press, Spicee has 40 correspondents “ Rio Islamabad .” A choice of long format and the International which combines an editorial for Jean-Bernard Schmidt: “ We said certain commitments. Towards migrants as in the documentary “The Pacific Solution” or to women which are often the main characters of our subjects.

Last dated feat of arms: the production of a series of topics on the conspiracy theories that plague the canvas. The team has achieved Spicee from scratch a video complotiste and studied its spread on the canvas (9350 views on Youtube in three weeks). The experiment resulted in a documentary “ConspiHunter” and in 2016 Spicee offer educational materials to help young people to fight against the “conspis”. “ This documentary is a UFO, both in the mixture journalists angles and substance ,” says Thomas Huchon its director.

A powerful and incisive UFO. As the platform that hosts …

Credit cards are the preferred payment method for consumers. The downside is fraud, especially on the internet. To secure transactions, new highly specialized technologies are already tested. “For example in November, 2000 customers are testing an ephemeral cryptogram map” , says Justine Weyl tray.

“The cryptogram is the three-digit security code which is listed on the back of the card. The novelty is that instead of being engraved on the card and therefore definitive, it appears on mini display and changes automatically every 20 minutes “ , details the journalist France 2. The system runs on a battery and the card is not thicker. “Advantage: if someone gets my cryptogram, it will have very little time to make purchases with my card Disadvantage:. such technology will cost more” , says Justine Weyl. Other more advanced technologies are still being studied, such as “voice recognition” “pay with his fingers” or “facial recognition” .

The info in 360 °: real contribution to new technologies or race? – ARTE Future (Blog)

Available to the public early 2016, the virtual reality mask to see videos 360 ° recovery media in the race for new technologies. If the video game and entertainment today share the monopoly of virtual immersion, many traditional media companies trying to capture the experience. They are associated with companies at the forefront of media technology to offer their viewers video reports 360. This escalation is it a way for the media to stay ahead in the innovation race and she is a real contribution in terms of information?

Virage 360 for Broadcast

View images scrolling on a screen will appear soon out of date. After exploring all facets of 3D, the giants of audiovisual and digital broaden their fields of view with the video 360. More than see, it allows the viewer to experience a scene as if he were in the shoes of a character. In March, YouTube was posting on the canvas his first videos, followed by Facebook in early September. For the modest sum of two billion dollars, the Silicon Valley giant bought Oculus VR, a company that develops a range of virtual reality goggles. Expected for more than three years, marketing to the general public is planned for early 2016, alongside the competing models of brands Sony, Google, HTC or Samsung. Three million of these devices could be sold next year. An explosion for the digital industry brings in its wake a host of companies specializing in virtual reality. Among them, the California startups Jaunt champion fundraisers, has signed a partnership with Walt Disney Company and traditional media groups to develop tools and software to produce virtual reality videos. If immersion seemed so far restricted to the fields of fiction and video games, it opens to the media and journalists, who want to extend the experience to the information service.

A war reporting as if you were

Many reports have been made using a camera 360. Equipped with multiple visual and auditory sensors that -ci films in all directions. Once assembled, the images provide comprehensive views that the viewer, the mask on the eyes, can choose to direct its gaze all around him. “ This allows for example to capture a place destined to disappear or to bring the viewer in an area ravaged by war, without making him run the risks of conflict ” explains Raphaël Beaugrand reporter for a Paris studio specializing in the video 360 °. The studio has posted an immersion reportage on the Syrian conflict, touring from May to July in Jisr al-Choughour. Syrian journalist, formed remotely, filmed the streets devastated by six cameras secretly channeled through the border with Turkey. For Raphaël Beaugrand, give the sensation people to be a hard hit by war place is the best way to understand why the Syrians leave their country. For him, the video 360 is the ultimate degree most successful journalism: “the e goal of the journalist is not all show and encourage voyeurism but to allow a person to be in one place where she could go alone and to recreate as closely as possible the things he saw “. The New York Times has launched an application dedicated to reporting in VR.

A new tool for an old genre

Immerse yourself in an environment to better reflect the atmosphere of the story is the same principle. Books Ten days in a lunatic asylum Nellie Bly, Turk’s Head Gunter Wallraf and Quai de Ouistreham Florence Aubenas are as many ‘journalistic initiatives seeking to live an experience to readers from within. With virtual reality, stories take on a new dimension by increasing empathy felt by users. A pioneer in the field, the American documentary filmmaker Nonny de la Peña sees virtual immersion in the future of journalism. In 2014, his last report Project Syria immerses the audience wearing the virtual mask in the hell of the war in Syria. “ People are shocked, they feel there, she says . They feel emotions and become actors of information “. For her, virtual reality is as an essential means of communication including the mainstream press because it brings the news readers and the journalist removes the filter.

Behind the mask , priority information

The emergence of new technologies constantly polls the media on their way to inform. By removing the filter journalist, virtual reality also removes analysis and distancing about. Malicious companies could use the emotions of a scene of war for propaganda purposes and not to transmit information. Because in reality, if the image gives the impression of appearing without artifice under the virtual mask, it is like any journalistic production, the result of selection during shooting and editing. Whether mobile or put the star on a pole or tripod, the six cameras must be synchronized to film the different angles of a scene simultaneously. They should be placed in a strategic location allowing both to blend in and be in the heart of the action. On assembly, their images are processed separately before being assembled. Companies offer software to simplify the treatment but the cost of equipment is high, both for journalists and users. It takes $ 1,500 to get the mask and the PC offered by Oculus VF.

Self-taught and passionate about new technologies, the Rennes photographer Adrien Duquesnel had to invest 7000 euros hardware to experiment with video 360. He is convinced that it can become a full-fledged media journalism at just like the photo, video or audio. “ Advanced Internet hustles every respective areas of traditional media: the press develops video, audio and written develops and integrates both video .” For him, these different media formats are complementary . They are a “ toolbox made available to the journalist who must choose the correct format to best process information “.

HTC integrates new technologies into his helmet Vive – Le Journal du Geek

We were expecting the Vive, the reality helmet Virtual HTC and Valve, the end of the year. Unfortunately, it will have to wait a few months since the manufacturer announced that its product will be available in April. Developer kits will be available from the beginning of next year.

But why such an expectation, while our two thieves could strike a blow and directly compete with Samsung RV Gear ? Cher Wang, CEO of HTC, gave an indication: the manufacturer simply wanted to integrate several new disruptive technologies in his helmet, so important technologies that the decision was made to delay the launch of the device


Unfortunately, we do not know the nature of these mysterious technologies. Not even the price of the device … Hopefully, however, that these innovations will not cost an arm. Cher Wang has in any case shown that 80% of HTC’s engineers have raised the arms in a sign of approval when we presented them with a price. To learn a little more, it will now wait for the CES.

With one goal: to offer the customer at the right time, good service, good product, personalized, rather qu’harceler its permanent client. The second partnership concerns the infrastructure, to equip agencies amenities including fiber optic, allowing them to easily discuss with clients by digital channels. The two other partnerships are more technological parties, the first on the connected objects, the second on fashion FINTECH these technology startups that will revolutionize the relationship between banks and customers.

Is this a step towards the disappearance of agencies?

Attacks: SNCF experimenting with new technologies for … – The Blog of Jean-Marc Morandini (Blog)

The SNCF experimenting with new technologies to detect behavior or suspicious baggage, has she said, while calling for assigning new powers to its security officers, as provided a bill for debate in the Meeting.

Given the “exceptional nature” of the threat of terrorism after the attacks in Paris, SNCF eg testing a behavioral analysis software that could be integrated with its 40,000 surveillance cameras, detailed the Secretary General the public company Stéphane Volant.

It is based “on the change in body temperature, the shrug of voice or the staccato nature of gestures that can show some anxiety,” he has described.

The leader stressed that the current trial is conducted in several stations “in accordance with the law and under the supervision of the National Commission of Information and Freedoms (CNIL).”

“It tests whether it identifies people who have a negative intent, an attacker or a jobber + +, but also the social acceptability,” to see if travelers are willing to accept such technology, once lifted the emergency rule.

Cameras that detect suspicious packages since stayed too long on the ground are also being tested.

The SNCF also questions the possibility of equipping its portable cameras agents. They could both identify fraud or suspicious behavior, but also, if necessary, verify afterwards the conformity of the actions of agents with the code of ethics and professional conduct of the SNCF and the law.

In the spring, an application should be launched to allow travelers to launch the alert from their smartphones in case of suspicious behavior.

Furthermore, SNCF supports the legislation under consideration in the Assembly safety in transportation. The text would allow the SNCF security officers and RATP to conduct security pat-downs or searches of luggage with the agreement of the passenger.

The Defender had Friday expressed “serious reservations on some key provisions” of the bill that give according to him the “public security tasks to private security guards” of the SNCF and RATP.

“The Defender of Rights is in its role,” responded Stéphane Volant, emphasizing the ethical code of the SNCF, and the importance of the partnership established with SOS Racisme to frame any such searches and pat-downs.

         Sign that the subject calls on all levels, the reinsurer Swiss Re and the European regulator EIOPA come out in quick succession two studies on the impact of digitization and new technologies on consumers in the insurance sector. In its latest study sigma , Swiss Re focuses particularly on the life insurance market.
The authors highlight the fact that new technologies’ are able to reduce the length of the subscription process insurance and make it less invasive . ” These advances can come from the use of new data sources and predictive modeling tools to identify more finely customer needs. Using gamification (or ludification French) is another vector to facilitate the application process.
 Balanced regulatory approaches
 The technology also promotes better interaction through reward programs related to the behavior of policyholders. Finally, it allows to reach new consumer segments. “ This has been the case in emerging markets, where insurance distribution through mobile devices has grown exponentially over the last year, putting life insurance within the reach of many households that were up to now be under-insured is fully private blankets , “the report said.
Meanwhile, EIOPA also recognizes the contribution of advances in data analysis for insurance products. Products that become more responsive to consumer needs. But the Authority emphasizes fears regarding respect for privacy and customer segmentation. It considers it necessary to strengthen the management of potential conflicts of interest and raise the level of competence and training of insurance intermediaries.

The Star Wars saga, between reality and new technologies –

Star Wars
with Jules Roy

If at the time of the release of the Star Wars saga, it seemed inconceivable to travel the Millennium Falcon and pass the speed of light, scientists today are much less categorical

According to the magazine Science & amp. Life, There are some travel plans in the Milky Way. First
nuclear fusion rocket: a project born in 1973. The objective? Reach Barnard’s Star, 6 light years from Earth with a vessel composed of a two-stage motor. In 50 years it would reach the Barnard system. You can imagine there are still thousands of details to consider in attempting such a journey.

The other idea, the rocket antimatter. On paper there is no more effective than antimatter engine that turns any mass into energy with 100% efficiency. The only problem is that antimatter does not exist naturally and is very difficult to produce even small amounts. We must therefore be patient.

However, astrophysicists have discovered planets that resemble those imagined in the saga.
For example, they found a dead ringer for “Naboo”, the planet of Queen Amidala. A rocky planet with water surface. In reality it is the planet Kepler 452b, marked in July to 1,400 light years from earth.

Finally, the mythical planet Tatooine. Name inspired by the Tunisian desert of Tataouine. It is the home planet of the Skywalker family. His double was discovered in August, a planet with two suns: Kepler 453B to 1,400 light-years from Earth in the constellation Lyra
