In Solar appScreener 3.4. finalized the reporting system

Rostelecom-Solar has released a new version of the security app analyzer Solar appScreener 3.4.

Solar appScreener 3.4 has significantly revised the navigation and configuration of the reporting system, as well as the content of the reports themselves. The latter are now not a static list
problems and errors in the code, as before, and a dynamic document with cross-references for detailed descriptions of the identified vulnerabilities. Users of the new version will be able to choose what information on
the results of the analysis should be included in the report. Previously, filtering vulnerabilities (from programming languages, using Fuzzy Logic Engine technology, having a task in Jira, etc.) could
only in the Solar appScreener interface. The report also loaded all the resulting scan information about the vulnerability, without the ability to filter it. You can now use filtering as well
when forming. For example, when dealing with false positives, only vulnerabilities with a confidence level of 3 to 5 points on a 5-point scale can be uploaded to the report.

In addition, you can now include in the report more information about the project already mentioned: the history of all scans, diagrams with statistics of vulnerabilities in different sections, compared with
pre-scan, vulnerability comments, data flow chart, and other data.

Also, at the request of customers, developers have implemented a more detailed vulnerability verification system in the new version. New verification statuses have been added to the user interface
“Confirmed”, “Rejected”, “Not processed” (previously, vulnerabilities could only be flagged as false). The statuses are automatically saved in all subsequent sessions.

In addition, an analysis of applications developed by Microsoft’s .NET family of .NET was added. There are currently 32 supported programming languages ​​in the analyzer’s arsenal.

As part of the ongoing work to improve the quality of code analysis, .bsp (ABAP), .pso (Cobol), and more file extensions have been added to the new version.

The head of the bank said this on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos. He is convinced that the basic vector of development cannot be changed, otherwise Herman Gref does not see his place in

“I am deeply convinced that the strategy is right, the practice proves it. When I came to my position, I came up with a concept. If the concept is changed, I do not see my place in
companies, ”TASS quotes him.

In an interview with Russia 24, Gref noted that he was more positive than negative about the possible change of the bank’s main shareholder, and said that the topic of the transfer of the controlling stake was
raises many questions and concerns among investors.

“It seems to me that we can greatly benefit the country today by using our platform for technological transformation. There are not many alternatives in Russia, and we can be very powerful
a platform for the country’s development, for digital transformation, ”he said.

It should be reminded that by 2021, Sberbank must develop and adopt a new strategy instead of the old one, which operates until 2020. Herman Gref has repeatedly stated that Savings Bank will not remain simple
bank and should become a technology company. The central point of the current document is to build an ecosystem of non-financial services.

The question of future direction is still pending. On May 24, 2019, Gref was re-elected chairman of the Savings Bank for another four years, and in December of that year, Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov stated,
that the government is discussing the CBR’s withdrawal from the Savings Bank’s capital. The argument was that the financial regulator should not be a member of the organizations over which it oversees. Gref NO
saw problems in possible change of shareholder and confirmed that he is ready to work with the Ministry of Finance as a new owner.

Moscow authorities have received a second lawsuit against the system of face recognition

Moscow authorities have received a second lawsuit against the system of face recognition

Anna Savelyeva

Lawyer Elena Popova, together with politician Volodymyr Milov, filed a second lawsuit with the Moscow City Ministry of Internal Affairs and the City Hall’s Information Technology Department. Authorities responded to
the requirement to ban the use of the system at rallies.

The claim is registered in the Tver Court of Moscow. The reason was the rally in
support for political prisoners held on September 29 at Academician Sakharov Avenue. The lawsuit is due on November 10, 2020. The first meeting is scheduled for January 31. In turn, the agency
stated that the use of face recognition does not contradict the law, the system works solely in the interests of ensuring the safety of city residents, biometrics of citizens in the center
no data storage.

“The system of video analytics in Moscow is used in accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation. DIT, as the operator of the GIS “Single Data Storage Center”, has all the necessary legal bases
for the reception, transmission, storage and processing of video information ”, – emphasized in DIT.

The department also reminded that the identity of the citizen is set by the employees of the authorized bodies in the manner prescribed by law, and thus, in the absence of the process of identification of the individual,
“Citizens’ video images cannot be considered biometric personal data.”

The story was fined by Olena Popov in 2018 for picket near the State Duma. Then, during the trial, the court examined a video from a street surveillance camera, where the woman’s identity was
increased many times, which led to suspicion of using facial recognition technology without written consent. He was followed by a lawsuit in October 2019. However, in November Savelovsky
the Moscow court refused to satisfy the claim. The Moscow Department of Information Technology has stated that the system operates in accordance with the law on personal data
and with the state program, and the department has no purpose to monitor citizens.

Automotive innovations in Russia

Automotive innovations in Russia

J’son & Partners Consulting J’son has done some research on the digitization of transport, including the Connected Car concept

J’son & PartnersConsulting defines Connected Car as a vehicle equipped with equipment to connect to the Internet, as well as interfaces to communicate with
other connected objects both inside and outside the car – smartphones, trackers, traffic lights, other vehicles, road infrastructure, etc.

Automotive innovations in the connected car segment are experiencing an unprecedented boom, major automakers are introducing telematics, infotainment services and systems
driver support. Telecommunications companies are central to the automotive communications industry. The greatest activity in the segment of “smart” transport is also the largest
IT companies.

In Russia, the market for “connected” cars is developing according to global trends, but with a delay from developed countries for at least 2-3 years. The largest number of connections is the project
creation of the state automated information system “ERA-GLONASS” – as of July 15, 2019, it has registered more than 4 million vehicles. other great ones
segments are telematics monitoring systems for commercial vehicles (Fleet Management) and the control of heavy goods vehicles with onboard devices (“Plato project”), security
cellular-connected systems and infotainment media systems.

In Russia, long-term initiatives are being implemented in the field of connected and unmanned vehicles, intelligent transport infrastructure. Yes, within the first phase (2017-20)
national technological initiative (STI) “Avonet” is planned to create an ecosystem, including, in particular, the development and harmonization of regulatory legal and regulatory framework,
start of implementation of infrastructure and pilot projects on telematic transport and information systems, intellectual urban mobility, transport and logistics services. In 2019
it was planned to spend almost 15 billion rubles for the implementation of this initiative, including 7.4 billion rubles. from the federal budget.

The development of the M2M / IoT market in Russian transport is hampered by the difficult economic and political situation, a significant decline in demand for new cars, an increase in the share of old cars in
sales and imperfect legal framework.

According to J’son & Partners Consulting, the market for connected cars in Russia will grow from 7.1 million in 2018 to 16.5 million in 2022, ie more than 2 times. The most capacious segments before
the end of the forecast period will be:

  • basic and additional services on the basis of state systems “ERA-GLONASS” and “Plato” (more than 10 million units);

  • fleet management monitoring and management – 3 million units;

  • built-in infotainment systems – 1.7 million units.

The FAS introduced the concept of a pre-installation software resolution

The FAS introduced the concept of a pre-installation software resolution

Anna Savelyeva

On January 22, a working group meeting at the FAS Expert Council on Information Technologies was held to discuss the concept of the project on establishing requirements for developers. IN
The meeting was attended by representatives of FAS of Russia, Rospotrebnadzor, telecommunication operators, various associations, as well as software developers.

The project is about what equipment, how and when the mode of pre-installation of domestic software applications should be provided. It’s about smartphones, tablets, computers (before
10 kg), SMART-TV. There will be no specific registry of software.


Smartphones and tablets can have antivirus software, navigators, search engines, government access programs, and payment systems installed.

Tablets, computers, and SMART-TVs must be capable of installing audiovisual service programs as well as watching multiplex TV I and II programs.


First of all, it is proposed to provide a pre-installation mode on smartphones, taking into account the “successful experience gained from the FAS case and the Google settlement agreement”.

From July 1, 2020, pre-installation will be mandatory for smartphones, from July 1, 2021 tablets, from July 1, 2022 for PCs and from July 1, 2023, for SMART-TV.

However, some participants suggested moving the dates to an earlier or a later period. For starters, lawmakers want to equip devices with search and maps, then antivirus,
messengers, social networks and government services application. Next, it is planned to install the “Mir” payment system.

It is expected that by the end of January the working group will be sent a draft resolution. The Government’s due submission is scheduled for March 2020. To be responsible for
the former will be device makers, but retailers and distributors can do the same.

The numbers virus or the hormone of knowledge?

The numbers virus or the hormone of knowledge?

Marina Anshina

Any metaphor suffers from inaccuracy. No matter how you try to fully describe a particular entity through comparisons with other objects, it is still trying to get beyond the proposed framework, such as
dough with boiling water.

In the metaphor of the “virus of the numbers”, which is often described by the current state of the world and society, I like its inevitability and infectiousness, but outraged by the pain and the negative.

What I like about the virus is the numbers

Indeed, according to Wikipedia, viruses affect all types of organisms, from plants and animals to bacteria and unicellular cells. In this sense, the Internet of Things perfectly characterizes the digital
a virus that has infected or will certainly still infect all objects of the material world.

A serious antidote for the digital virus has not yet been invented. And the times when parents restricted children from communicating with computers have gone backwards. Because the millennial generation
is able to bypass the prohibitions imposed on them easily. And nowadays, computers are in every mobile phone, and free Internet access is almost everywhere.

The number virus is transmitted in almost every interaction. Because if one participant wants to use email or social networking as their primary means of communication, then the other
will have to adjust. And so it will quickly become infected with the digital virus.

All older generations are forced to go online, at least to communicate with children and grandchildren. And as soon as the computer and Internet access is mastered, it turns away “sick” from it
hard. After all, the virus of numbers allows you not only to communicate with friends and family, but also to make new friends. Just as importantly, virus-infected figures gain access to such volumes
information that did not dream “healthy”.

These qualitatively new opportunities urgently require a fundamentally different attitude to information than before in the pre-Internet era. Comparison with the usual measures used in viral
infections such as drinking warm, lying in bed and being ascorbic are unlikely to be appropriate. Changes in approaches to the use of information should be dramatic.

quality of information

It will be necessary to become accustomed to the indispensable accounting of the quality of the information used. And if earlier the information was shared on the principle of “white – black”, ie good or bad, now the quality
information becomes a more complex combined indicator. It will have to take into account its relevance, accuracy, clarity, suitability for analysis and many other characteristics. In each
in the particular case, from the vast array of available information, one will have to choose the one whose quality will improve the results obtained when it is applied.

I always allow students to use any exams in exams because in real life, they will also be able to access it. Some of them are not so responsible for this reason
to prepare as you would like. And so the results they find online can well be the basis for a humorous magazine. Unfortunately, even the millennials mentioned are NOT
know how to use information, choose from a variety of records issued by the search engine, what is suitable to answer the question. And worst of all, they trust any page on the Internet more,
than themselves. The transition from unconditional trust through complete distrust, which is already emerging, to the competent selection and use of information – a difficult task and very responsible. AND
since such a stage has not yet been overcome by mankind, it is not clear how to proceed. And when you don’t know what to do, but you have to do it, then it’s worth trying different methods,
constantly evaluate their performance and choose the best ones.

The breadth of possibilities requires selection techniques. Unfortunately, we are learning very slowly to live with the virus of numbers. And here it is necessary to advise not to lie in bed, and to learn to think.

Speed ​​of information processing

Everyone is talking about the huge amount of information that came down on us with the virus numbers. At one of the conferences she heard a very correct argument that if earlier there was an article or
the presentation could be put down in a long drawer, namely in a separate folder for further reading, now it is useless. That is, information must be learned to be processed promptly, extracting from it
knowledge is almost on the fly. In this case, “reading diagonally” leads to the fact that some of the information is not absorbed and simply does not make sense. And not “we will spit out the baby”, “in a hurry to buy it”?

The other day, one of the graduates of Harvard Business School told how students were required to read and learn 800-900 pages a day. And when he tried to protest, the school management responded,
that you can’t handle information like that, don’t go to managers. But it is clear that to fully absorb such a volume of man can not. Therefore, we should try not to speed up information processing
to lose, in fact, the information itself.

The need to improve the speed of information processing puts new demands on its presentation: competent formatting, clear structuring, annotation system, quality search
systems. In addition, artificial intelligence comes to the rescue.

Information as a basis for decision making

I really love Spencer’s data law and I often quote it. He says:

«1. Everyone can make a decision with enough information.

2. A good manager is able to make decisions with insufficient information at his or her disposal.

3. The ideal leader is able to make decisions without knowing anything. ”

I would change the word “manager” to “man” here. Because decisions, including important ones for the company, are not only made by the executives. However, most obviously consider themselves
perfect executives, make decisions without knowing almost anything. Obviously, assuming without much reason that intuition will work. Yes, we can quote Einstein: “Intuition is
a sacred gift and a rational mind a faithful servant. ” But in order for the intuition to work, it is necessary to understand the situation at least in a small way. And this is impossible without adequate information. moreover,
I repeat that information is not needed, but one that does not impair the quality of the decision.

This approach requires a serious revision of not only the processes and their regulations in the organization, but also the way of thinking, culture in society, which is much more complicated. competent use
information should be learned from kindergarten. But we are still shaping the rules of such a competent approach.

Why the virus?

You may not know what the Latin for virus means “poison”. A viral disease can lead to death. Yes, many say that promoting numbers can lead to personality degeneration, or
worse, the victory of the cars in the scenario described in the Terminator. Once scared of steam boilers, now it is a virus of numbers. Any new opportunities inevitably create new risks.

However, it would not be desirable to associate the advancement of information technology with risks alone. And this, unfortunately, is visible in the term “virus numbers”. To imagine that everything is digital is a disease, it is only that
growth disease, not caused by a virus, but associated with the extremely rapid development of the IT industry.

Yes, the level of understanding and ability to use IT in society is too far from real possibilities. And the chasm is growing. It cannot be said that the state or individual companies do not
understand and do not take appropriate action. But here it is appropriate to compare with a drop in the sea. These measures are indecisive and fragmentary. And until they produce serious results.

It would be a good idea to organize a comprehensive recovery of society that would turn the virus of the digit into a hormone of the digit. It is possible to take vitamins of standards and rules, considering what they will be
really useful and perceived by the body. To do this, prevention should be provided for toddlers and adults in the form of all means of promotion and training in the correct use of information in
different situations with security in mind. To do this, you need to get rid of the term “virus” and stop thinking of IT as something harmful and temporary.

Why the number?

And why are we talking about the digital virus, the digital transformation and the digital economy? For most people, the term “number” is associated with the numbers of the decimal number system. And for no one
it’s no secret that computers think in binary, ie in zeros and ones.

But as Captain Vrungel sang, “As you call the boat, so it will sail.” And there are heads of digital transformation programs who seriously believe that if you give each manager a
correlation matrix, it will make only the right decisions. Or that the main characteristic of the digital transformation level is the depth of presentation.

Data is a set of numbers, which in turn consists of numbers. What and to whom can the numbers be given? How will they help you make decisions? At least they need to be processed to get out
information. And it would be good to extract knowledge from information, because, as we have discussed above, so much information falls on the modern man, which he himself
it is simply not possible to process.

Thus, the figure is the first stage in the acquisition of knowledge. And in this sense, the common terminology based on numbers shows that we are at the very beginning of the journey.

And I very much hope that as we go this route, we will soon be discussing not the virus of numbers, but the hormone of knowledge.
