Home-field advantage 5. Advantage
Old: size, strength
New: network, anonymity
Tactical to strategic advantage 6. Flexibility
Espionage: Golden Age
Destruction: STXNT
Most powerful: propaganda 7. Attribution
Deterrence, retaliation: low credibility
Ease of entry = rising numbers
Real cyberwar, ID should be clear 8. Quiet
Covert cyber war
Retaliation in meatspace
Private sector vs nation-state 9. Subjectivity
Cyber defense immature
BDA calculations
Effects-based evaluation 10. Morality
Few inhibitions: no dead humans
Future target: civilians
End-state: war or peace? Like pirates
Some IT no longer supported: SCADA Trad: most wars no embed reports, 24/7 TV Private sector cannot beat nation-states
Legislation to require best practices?
Business: profit more important than security
When is inattention to security a crime? Existence of vulnerability does not justify attack
Short-term gains undermine long-term integrity
Should avoid unnecessary militarization of cyberspace The Art of Cyberwar Dr. Kenneth Geers NCIS Cyber Subject Matter Expert DEF CON XX "Rapidity is the essence of war: take advantage of the enemys unreadiness ... unexpected routes ... unguarded spots." "O divine art of subtlety and secrecy ... we learn to be invisible ... inaudible ... we can hold the enemy's fate in our hands." "A wise general makes a point of foraging on the enemy ...
one cartload of the enemy's provisions is equivalent to twenty of one's own." "There are five ways of attacking with fire: burn soldiers in their camp; burn stores; burn baggage trains; burn arsenals and magazines; hurl dropping fire amongst the enemy." "Supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting." "The Art of War teaches us to rely not on the likelihood of the enemy's not coming, but on our own readiness to receive him; not on the chance of his not attacking, but rather on the fact that we have made our position unassailable." "The natural formation of the country is the soldier's best ally ... shrewdly calculating difficulties, dangers and distances constitutes the test of a great general." "The general is skillful in attack whose opponent does not know what to defend; he is skillful in defense whose opponent does not know what to attack." "The general who is skilled in defense hides in the most secret recesses of the earth." "If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles." "The best thing of all is to take the enemy's country whole and intact." Georgia 2008: during Arab Spring: before < = #Tunisia
