Military and intelligence leaders agree that the next major war is
not likely to be fought on the battleground but in cyber space.
Richard Stiennon argues the era of cyber warfare has already begun.
Recent cyber attacks on United States government departments and
the Pentagon corroborate this claim. China has compromised email
servers at the German Chancellery, Whitehall, and the Pentagon. In
August 2008, Russia launched a cyber attack against Georgia that
was commensurate with their invasion of South Ossetia. This was the
first time that modern cyber attacks were used in conjunction with
a physical attack. Every day, thousands of attempts are made to
hack into America's critical infrastructure. These attacks, if
successful, could have devastating consequences. In Surviving
Cyberwar, Stiennon introduces cyberwar, outlines an effective
defense against cyber threats, and explains how to prepare for
future attacks.The book: *begins with Shawn Carpenter and his
discovery that China had hacked into his work place, Sandia Labs;
*follows the rise of cyber espionage on the part of the Chinese
People's Liberation Army (PLA) as increasingly sophisticated and
overt attacks are carried out against government and military
networks around the world; *moves from cyber espionage to cyberwar
itself, revealing the rise of distributed denial of service (DDoS)
as a means of attacking servers, websites, and countries; *provides
a historical perspective on technology and warfare is provided,
drawing on lessons learned from Sun Tsu to Lawrence of Arabia to
Winston Churchill; and *finishes by considering how major
democracies are preparing for cyberwar and predicts ways that a new
era of cyber conflict is going to impact the Internet, privacy, and
the way the world works. This text is a stimulating and informative
look at one of the gravest threats to Homeland Security today,
offering new insights to technologists on the front lines, helping
policy makers understand the challenges they face, and providing
guidance for every organization to help reduce exposure to cyber
threats.It is essential reading for anyone concerned with the
current geopolitical state of affairs.
