Note from the authors


Our civilizations have merged into a rich and vast expanse riding on the back of the written word. When the zero was introduced to the world, it opened up a doorway to infinite possibilities in the future. Trade was followed by industry which created a necessity to have Governments that understood industries and sciences. After the World Wars, spies were the latest strength of a country to gain leverage over the other. Nations didn’t stop there. They wanted someone or something that could penetrate into others’ military, economy, research and even into their households. Of course, with the viral spread of computing machines that were exponentially automating processes, they found a new option.

Then came the age of the ‘economic hitman’. These are men that were sent inside the other country’s machinery to operate as one of their own. They are not spies in the real sense as they did not pass on information to their loyal camps. They are simply bound to obey orders. Flick a switch here and there once in a while to weaken the enemy nation bit by bit. In the real sense, they are more like modern day Trojan horses.
While economic hitmen found their places in the economy and the machinery of a country, the country still housed its perennial villains in politics. With technological advances, a new opportunity was created. Technology and politics blended together comes to be the most potent combination in the history of any civilization.

Although this book is not necessarily meant for pure technology enthusiasts, however, it will undoubtedly be helpful to have a basic understanding of a few technologies mentioned in the book.

Computers and big programs that span across the country and the globe operate on simple concepts. There is data about some activity and the computers make sense of this data for the intended purposes. Gradually, the amount of data collected in a few systems has grown so much that it becomes impossible to track all of it. For example, in social networking sites and web searches, every activity leaves a trail of history, choices, interests, etc. and such other data which may never even be made use of.

The modern concept of Big Data intends to make use of this vast data. Big Data systems process immense amount of information every second to establish a pattern in behavior of the information available to them. This pattern can have a plethora of applications like making sense of random pieces of information or forecasting the activities of a specific target in mind.

Data is written in most computers as a combination of zeros and ones. Different combinations of these two digits signify different alphabets, words, sentences and so on. Using three digits means that more combinations can be created, if four are used even more… and so on. Quantum computers use large number notations as part of their basic set of numbers. This means that there are innumerable digits between zero and one, thus immensely more ways to represent our written word. This also means that they can process that many more number of scenarios for a mathematical equation. Such detailed levels of computation lends these computers their extraordinary processing capabilities. This technology is still in its nascent stages and is yet to see a full bloom. The prospects are huge.

The complex maze of data and devices has created another area of concern for the Governments. With the human footprint increasing on the internet, there might be a case for uninformed stringent monitoring activities. Whether the pretext of national security is justifiable for the intrusion of privacy and relentless monitoring is yet another unresolved debate. Amidst the hysteria, governments have already moved forward with their mammoth plans of monitoring the massive data that now lies at the mercy of their policies.

Cyber activists have come together for many of the countless causes waging their silent war against governments’ propaganda. Hackers, cyber terrorists, protestors and modern revolutionaries have all found their comfort zones in the deep crevices of the monstrous World Wide Web. The latest addition to this class of activists are Patriotic Hackers. Patriotic hackers are individuals who hold their nation in high regard and feel a deep sense of responsibility towards their country. They have their own understanding of ‘enemies to the state’ and in their efforts to protect their country against these enemies, they take cyber action as they deem fit.

This is where the lines between terrorism and patriotism are dulled. The story told here lies in this space where the lines are faint.
