Search: The Future of OSINT [is M4IS2-Multinational]

COIN20 Trip Report

Paradise Found

The future of OSINT is M4IS2.

The future of Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) is Multinational, Multifunctional, Multidisciplinary, Multidomain Information-Sharing & Sense-Making (M4IS2).

The following, subject to the approval of Executive and Congressional leadership, are suggested hueristics (rules of thumb):

Rule 1: All Open Source Information (OSIF) goes directly to the high side (multinational top secret) the instant it is received at any level by any civilian or military element responsive to global OSINT grid.  This includes all of the contextual agency and mission specific information from the civilian elements previously stove-piped or disgarded, not only within the US, but ultimately within all 90+ participating nations.

Rule 2: In return for Rule 1, the US IC agrees that the Department of State (and within DoD, Civil Affairs) is the proponent outside the wire, and the sharing of all OSIF originating outside the US IC is at the discretion of State/Civil Affairs without secret world caveat or constraint.  OSIF collected by US IC elements is NOT included in this warrant.

Who’s Who in Public Intelligence: Doug Dearth

Doug Dearth

Doug Dearth

Dr. Doug Dearth, in partnership with Col Al Campen, USAF (Ret) will always remain the original Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) pioneer for both Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and Cyber-War.

It was his sponsorship, from within the Joint Military Intelligence Training Center (JMITC) that led to the creation of the first-ever official Open Source Intelligence Handbook (JMITC, 1996).

He and Al Campen published three books on Cyber-War:

Cyberwar: Security, Strategy and Conflict in the Information Age (AFCEA, 1996) with Thomas Godden

Cyberwar 2.0: Myths, Mysteries, and Reality (AFCEA, 1998)

Cyberwar 3.0: Human Factors in Information Operations and Future Conflict (AFCEA, 2000)
