Two significant changes are taking place the advent of Intelligent Malware would be bad enough, but in combination with the Virtualization of Democracy it spells Doom.

The Church-Turing Thesis solves the threats of Artificially Intelligent Malware and errors by privileged users as a future-safe Trusted Commercial Computer, fit for the 21st Century.

A new book by Kenneth J. Hamer-Hodges explores this hiatus in the development of cyber society in the 21st Century by reviewing the engineering of secure systems that pass the test of time.

    ‘This book is a must-read for anyone concerned with software quality, hacking, malware and cybercrime. It covers the waterfront on Industrial Strength Computers and trusted software.’ Mr. Capers Jones III, author of many books on software engineering, software quality, methodologies, the function point model, software cost estimation and a distinguished Advisor to the Consortium for IT Software Quality.

    In this exciting and provocative book, Ken argues that the general-purpose computer and the software built around it hasn’t changed, architecturally, since its introduction in the late 1940s. Then, computers were batch processing machines in locked, secure, computer rooms. Today, with the tremendous advances in technology miniaturization, computers are in every facet of society and are networked together in complex interactions. However, the fundamental architecture has not changed since von Neumann and WWII. Consequently, Ken argues that today’s systems are vulnerable to cyber attacks by bad actors using intelligent malware. He makes a plea for much better, reliable, and faultless software and system design to avoid complete chaos and collapse of our vital systems due to a cyber attack. Ken advocates that these designs should make use of mathematically pure, Church-Turing type hardware which would reduce errors, detect attacks, and ensure the safety of society. To bring about this revolution, he argues that a vertically integrated, monopolistic, self-serving computer industry, must introduce competition. An architectural alternative at the chip level to allow built-in cybersecurity. The existential threat to democratic society through rising cybercrime must be taken much more seriously by computer scientists, legislators, industry, and Government. This book is a fascinating insight into the enormous cybersecurity problems of the 21st century.
