North Korea Is Selling Facial Recognition Technology

According to a report from the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies the North Koreans are marketing a variety of different technologies including facial recognition software. It appears that the NoKo's are very good at hiding their identity by using front companies, websites, and other means to sell software and tech to unknowing companies. What this might mean for cybersecurity is anybody's guess, but it does show that sanctions appear to be easy to get around sometimes.
