"Digital Gulag": Moscow Looks Into "Monitoring And Analyzing" All User Internet Activity

Click to see full-size image

The Moscow Department of Information Technologies (DIT) has placed a tender for the development of a system for monitoring and analyzing Internet activity of users in the Russian capital.

The cost of the tender is 280 million rubles ($3.7 million), and Open Media was the first to draw attention to it.

In accordance with the technical specifications, the system must track user interactions with various Internet resources, store data about them in an impersonal form and collect statistics.

The information system for monitoring and analyzing Internet activity is called IS STATS.

It was created back in 2017. According to the description of the current state of the system, it is already capable of detecting Internet users without the use of cookies.

“The information system for monitoring and analyzing users’ Internet activity automates processes that improve the quality of promotion and popularization of the content of information systems and resources of the city of Moscow, including the determination of optimal communication sites with visitors and a content promotion channel according to a certain segment, to which the visitor or the Internet belongs. -resource,” the system is described in the document.

On the basis of the current system, it is planned to “create a toolkit for monitoring user activity in the territories and facilities of the city of Moscow.”

With this system upgrade, Moscow City Hall expects to create detailed user profiles for all city services. The system database, for example, will contain information about payment for services, debts, fines, for example, traffic violations, parking rules and “medical violations”, information about a travel document and social card.

All this data will be compared with information about the connection of users’ devices to public Wi-Fi hotspots and with the geolocation data of telecom operators.

The system will create “activity profiles by line of business”. One of the system modules will study the “loyalty” of users.

The head of the Moscow DIT, Eduard Lysenko called the creation of such a monitoring system “a standard practice for many government and commercial organizations.”

According to him, the system will allow each user to update the information on the mos.ru portal.

“Analysis of Internet activity is necessary to personally provide relevant content to a specific user. For example, if a device often visits automotive services, the system classifies the user of this device as a motorist and will be able to offer him information on this topic in the future. Thus, residents receive only the information that is important and interesting to them,” he explained.

Lysenko stressed that the system will collect data impersonally.

“A profile and personal recommendations are not formed for a specific person, but for a device. The system works without reference to the user’s personal data and does not encroach on the secret of his personal life,” he said.

The competition for the creation of the STATS system was announced in 2017, the contract value was 42.5 million rubles ($526,000). The system was developed by ANO National Institute for Systemic Research of Entrepreneurship Problems (NISIPP).

In 2018 and 2019, two more tenders were announced for the modernization of the system, worth 52.4 million ($694,000) and 49.5 million rubles ($655,000), respectively.

In the spring, on behalf of the government, to combat the spread of coronavirus infection, a citizen contact tracing system was developed, as well as the Social Monitoring mobile application, which monitored the movements of COVID-19 patients undergoing home treatment.

The program tracks the user’s geolocation and requires him to take a photo at home. If the image is not received on the server of the Main Control Directorate of Moscow within an hour, then the sick person will be charged a large administrative fine.

In May 2020, users complained about disruptions in the work of Social Monitoring – notifications arrived late at night, and the photo could not be sent the first time. The HRC then proposed canceling all fines issued using the app.

It is just like Tommy had warned us about! If only we had listened to his indepth, well-structured analyses and insights into the human condition and Putin.

occupybacon

Tommy, we know it’s you.

occupybacon

They can cover it in anti-terrorism and what knot but we all know it’s a bout monitoring those videochat slutties.

Harry Smith

It is the global tendency in all big megapolises. Welcome to 2030.

occupybacon

5g will make us more free. No joking. They are scared that they are not prepared yet to store and handle the huge data. Plus all countries officials and security agents will be vulnerable to hackers. The next generation officials can be only geeks, that means the actual corrupt rulling class won’t be able to hire relatives like today.

Harry Smith

I am not agree with you. 5g will give nothing you said. The real threat is 6G and Brain–computer interface. And as you said about officials, the most of their functions will be transferred to Artificial Intellect. We already have very developed electronic government but bureaucracy is still enormous. Russian e-govt in English: https://www.gosuslugi.ru/foreign-citizen?lang=en
It means that until they won’t produce a working quantum computer to process the big data online – they won’t start the revolution. And as for ruling elites they will remain. The modern bureaucracy is nothing but their servants. Global elites are those who manage the great reset.

occupybacon

And how will not interfere the computer with their brains?

Harry Smith

I don’t know, because there is no fully interworking prototype yet. But want to quote something for you.

This is “welcome to 2030”
https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2016/11/how-life-could-change-2030/
“I know that, somewhere, everything I do, think and dream of is recorded.”

“What is it like to use a BCI? – insights from an interview study with brain-computer interface users”
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6945485/
“These technologies potentially raise interesting questions that ethicists have highlighted and discussed. Burwell et al. synthesize ethical issues addressed throughout the BCI literature.”

occupybacon

This is literature, once some secret agency reaches this technologies first will use it against other secret agencies AND to make money as fast as possible, probably they will kill each other until the technology will be usable by the many. And the hackers are always in front of the times. There is no way they someone that creates such thing will be that stupid to spend its time and knowledge on people like you and me, before the rich.

Harry Smith

BCI is one of the narratives of informational transformation started. As for spending the technology, you didn’t read 2030 with attention. They say that possession of things will be substituted by free rent of services.
The global system is changing now. No money or capital will be needed in the future. Just different levels of access to all kind of services.
BTW, as text on Georgia guidestones is written in English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Traditional Chinese, and Russian, I would not suggest you to think that there is a place for you in the brave new world, unless your first language is mentioned.

occupybacon

But I’m aware that They want that, man. We all know. But won’t happen. They are not gods, any regime has an end, as Putin and Rotschield.

Harry Smith

Putin is the one who opposes this stuff. As Trump in USA or Orban in Hungary. But the catch is that every patriotic leader is focused on his own country, while globalists are working all together in every country in the World. Look like MSM are making bad image of every patriotic leader or how all MSM in western world hailed Biden.
They will definitely win. BTW all this stuff with anti 5G has no logical explanation from point of view of Physics. But most of you have to be aware of 5G. And it is not because of microwaves or whatever but because 5G means that huge number of sensors can be deployed and effectively controlled. That means high level of automation and automation leads to unemployment and to death of industry in non technological countries. Look at this 5G fully unmanned container terminal and you will understand:

occupybacon

Ok how is Putin oposing this stuff?

Harry Smith

Last constitution changes, many laws which defend privacy, this month he started the dismounting of Skolkovo and Rosnano. A lot of stuff. But the main vector is independence which opposes to globalization.
PS. Another good video about that port with good explanation:
https://youtu.be/24pjf1t7luQ

occupybacon

So he ordered to dismantle research chenters? Under which pretext?

Harry Smith

These two were liberal cash laundries. They did nothing but got a lot of money from the budget.

occupybacon

Ahh I got it, if true well done. Anyway the rest is Luddism :)

Lone Ranger

Standard procedure in all western countries, Facefook and Google is even making miney on it selling your personal data and behaviour profile.

Lone Ranger

Hope its against CIAfaglets/soros faglets and ukropnazis.

Harry Smith

No. There are globalists too. Actually, if Trump loses his fight Russia is f*cked up too. At least I think so.

Lone Ranger

Russia has its funger onnthe button.
If pefibide gets in power he only has to make one serious kistake luke Georgia or Ukraine and DC will be a sude jote in future history books.
Putin made it clear not so ling ago that every hostile action against mainland Russia will result in a nuke strike targeting 7 key targets yet to be publicly named.
Russians rarely bluff…

occupybacon

Are the schoolgirls scared when you tell them these stories?

Lone Ranger

They pee their panties…

occupybacon

I bet. Go to sleep. Russia will nuke America tomorrow.

Lone Ranger

CIA HQ and the house of Soros would be enough on my part, but ok…
Sleep well ?
Nigh night.

Harry Smith

The question is not about external Russian affairs, but internal.

Lone Ranger

I wouldnt worry.
CIA was trying to subvert Russia for the past 20 years, without success.

Harry Smith

CIA is just a tool of USA elites. I am talking about global elites.

Lone Ranger

True.
But I would say sofar they couldnt really get a grip on Russia.

chris chuba

The Russian Federation is now google.

Harry Smith

Stop panicking. It’s only Moscow.

Иван

Not creepy at all.

Fog of War

Just like the ” anti-globalist ” Chinese do, who would have suspected ? Strange how all nations seem to be converging at the same NWO wet dream. Yet, strangely Russia still allows Google, Apple, Facebook, and others to operate within its borders. Not to worry though, China and Russia are fighting against the PTB. SMH.
