History> C.U.P.I.D. Timeline

In the late 1990's I attempted to find a programmer who could install my basic C.U.P.I.D. design into an older 'Gen1' BIOS. The logo at the top of this webpage is from my 2001 beta install effort for a C.U.P.I.D. Email. The full size of which is here.

Unable to find someone who knew how to program a BIOS outside the primary manufacturers and also any investor who even understood what a BIOS was, ultimately I settled for a secure email project utilizing a combination of a given computers hardware ID's, user chosen and random generated passwords to encrypt any emails over any POP3/SMTP server. By using random hardward ID's in the algorithms, nobody could view the emails unless it was on either the sender or receivers computers.

When our programmer was swayed to join the Australian Air Force and the timing of release of the first beta versions being September 2001, it was decided to shelve the project until some other time.

In 1999 I read a white paper from Intel regarding a proposal for a next generation BIOS called 'UEFI'. Over the dormant years of 2001-2011 I realized my original design would be far easier to create with the new UEFI. Strange how in 2008 the CIA, as reported here, has been using what was my original goal by using BIOS slack space (or incorporating in to the BIOS code itself) for undetectable code that could withstand a Operating System wipe on iPhones.

Though the original design code would have collected hardware information for use in securing email and the CIA version has far more abilities, I find it interesting I was 5-10 years ahead of them in their thinking even if not the same path then at least the same direction.

'Life' as we say, took over for the next few years until ultimately what was once a happy life took a nose dive in late 2008. It was 2011 when I revisited the since shelved C.U.P.I.D. original concept and applied it to the new UEFI design. Realizing what others to this day have not, the C.U.P.I.D. design will be a known user controlled tool while all these others trying to spy on you clearly is not.

Beyond the hardware mods necessary to make this happen, you will find much discussion on this website as to what -can be done- with the correct software development. Without the unpatented mods however, the world will be at risk since both the CIA and NSA toolkits have been made public. While I do not rest all hacking being attributed to those toolkits being hacked/leaked from the NSA and CIA, it is only a matter of time before hackers learn new ways to exploit them to their benefit and your demise.

Only way to stop the coming onslaught of hacking thanks to those tools becoming publicly available? Build C.U.P.I.D. with me.
