April 16, 2013 Added by:Jarno Limnéll

Electronic Warfare and Cyber – Uncomfortable Cousins?

January 18, 2013 Added by:Joel Harding

Assessment of Security Policies Within the DoD

September 11, 2012 Added by:Stefano Mele

According to a new report from the DoD Inspector General, security policies "often overlap, are fragmentary, or inconsistent". The sheer volume of policies that are not integrated makes it difficult for those in the field to ensure consistent and comprehensive policy implementation...

U.S. Admits to Cyber Attacks: The Future of Conflict

August 28, 2012 Added by:Pierluigi Paganini

“As a commander in Afghanistan in the year 2010, I was able to use my cyber operations against my adversary with great impact...

Cyberwar! Let’s Work Through This, Shall We...

Potential Collateral Damage from an Israeli First Strike on Iran

August 26, 2012 Added by:Richard Stiennon

Carbon whiskers unleashed to disable transformers? Oh yes. Just a few grams got released into the atmosphere and shorted out transformers throughout the Pacific Northwest. I do not like the idea of kilograms of this escaping the target area. It could be decades before power grids are free of this menace...

Thoughts On a U.S. Cyber Militia

August 23, 2012 Added by:Joel Harding

The Swiss are standing up a cyber command and they say their cyber warriors will be armed. Why wouldn’t this work in the US? First, we don’t trust our people as much as the Swiss. That is the nature of our culture, especially in the US. We are more paranoid, cynical and negative. We tend to micromanage...

August 15, 2012 Added by:Richard Stiennon

The trade of conventional weapons is a multi-billion dollar industry. But when it comes to cyber weapons, developed nations have yet to place limits on what kind of offensive software can be sold.

August 11, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

We have opened Pandora’s box and there is no way to get what has escaped back in. We have given the weapon framework away due to the nature of the carrier. Even if Gauss is encrypted, it will be broken and then what? Unlike traditional weapons that destroy themselves, the malware we have sent can be reverse engineered...
