Connected Devices Give Spies a Powerful New Way to Surveil

Birth of a New Intelligence Paradigm

The US Office of National Intelligence defines six basic intelligence-collection paradigms: signals intelligence (SIGINT), imagery intelligence (IMINT), measurement and signature intelligence (MASINT), human-source intelligence (HUMINT), open-source intelligence (OSINT) and geospatial intelligence (GEOINT).

The advent of the IoT will enable a new and seventh paradigm: TEMPINT—i.e., “temporal intelligence”. TEMPINT is not a narrow intelligence collection methodology that focuses on certain sources, but rather a holistic approach to data collection and analysis. TEMPINT assumes that most individuals and infrastructures will be monitored, and that parts of the data can be collected, stored, and analyzed.
