CD Media released another great read, this time about the Hunter Brandon laptop. This is related to our reporting back in early October 2020.
CD Media reports:
Hunter Brandon infamous ‘laptop from Hell’ contains many U.S. Department of Defense ‘root encryption certificates’, or encryption keys to DoD databases. The keys have unusual long-term expiration dates, with many lasting twenty years or more.
This information was discovered during a deep forensic investigation done over the last couple weeks, by Jack Maxey and his team in Switzerland.
This situation raises multiple questions, such as…
Why did Hunter Brandon have a large number of Department of Defense encryption codes to allow access to national security data?
Did Hunter Brandon give anyone else access to this information?
Who gave the codes to Hunter Brandon?
Why do the codes have long-term expiration dates, when the usual practice is to provide a user access only during his ‘need to know’, or time in the job, which is usually 2-3 years at most?
This report coincides with our reporting on October 27, 2020, where we pointed out Hunter’s ties with Russians.
A related post at the Illustrated Primer from November 3, 2020, shared much of what was in our report along with an additional image not in our report at TGP. This image (Number 8) provides an example of Hunter’s access to government systems.
