Hiding in Chatter

Dinvoge Gozru is the Securer's method of communicating sensitive information via seemingly innocent messages on social media platforms.  

Method

 

Fake Accounts

Every Securer has access to a number of fake accounts for this purpose. Those are automated to simulate natural posting activity throughout the day, with trivial information such as what the "person" had for lunch, rants about a movie they did not like, or pictures of their alleged pet. Danokon monitors these accounts with a high priority, and when a hidden message is detected, it is forwarded to the intended recipient. The actual account which is chosen is part of the message as well.  

Encoding

Each Securer is accompanied by a minimal, mobile version of the Danokon system during missions, which embeds the message in a fake post by deviating from the preprogrammed content generation. In the rare case that the local Danokon system fails, the Securer uses one particular account to manually post specific content.  

Structure

Vocabulary

Chosen Account

  There are different accounts for conveying different message types.  
  • for high-priority emergencies
  • for the individual Securer
  • for the entire deployed team
  • for cases when the local Danokon subsystem is offline
