This textbook offers an accessible introduction to the historical, technical, and strategic context of cyber conflict. The international relations, policy, doctrine, strategy, and operational issues associated with computer network attack, computer network exploitation, and computer network defense are collectively referred to as cyber warfare. This new textbook provides students with a comprehensive perspective on the technical, strategic, and policy issues associated with cyber conflict as well as an introduction to key state and non-state actors. Specifically, the book provides a comprehensive overview of these key issue areas: the historical emergence and evolution of cyber warfare, including the basic characteristics and methods of computer network attack, exploitation, and defense; a theoretical set of perspectives on conflict in the digital age from the point of view of international relations (IR) and the security studies field; the current national perspectives, policies, doctrines, and strategies relevant to cyber warfare; and an examination of key challenges in international law, norm development, and the potential impact of cyber warfare on future international conflicts. This book will be of much interest to students of cyber conflict and other forms of digital warfare, security studies, strategic studies, defense policy, and, most broadly, international relations.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Jura - Europarecht, Völkerrecht, Internationales Privatrecht, Note: 13, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: „Stell’ Dir vor es ist Krieg und keiner geht hin.“ Dieses Zitat des amerikanischen Schriftstellers Carl Sandburg wurde in Deutschland Anfang der achtziger Jahre durch die Friedensbewegung gegen die Nachrüstung und den Nato-Doppelbeschluss populär. Doch wenn man an die Entwicklung des Internets und die Technisierung des Kriegsgeschehens denkt, erlangt dieser eigentlich pazifistische Satz eine ganz andere Bedeutung. Das Informationszeitalter ist geprägt von neuen Technologien, die dem Menschen das Leben vereinfachen. Wenn man Geschäfte bequem im Internet abschließen kann und sich ein erheblicher Teil des sozialen Lebens online abspielt, so ist es nicht fernliegend, dass Staaten zukünftig im virtuellen Raum auch ein „digitales Schlachtfeld“ eröffnen können, quasi „Krieg per Mausklick“ führen. Eine dahingehende Tendenz ist bereits in der Entwicklung der Drohnen-Technologie zu sehen. Ein insoweit nur konsequenter nächster Schritt ist die Verlagerung des gesamten Schlachtfelds ins Internet. Eigene Abteilungen des Militärs und der Geheimdienste für Cyber-Operationen und die Verteidigung gegen solche sind längst keine Neuheit mehr. Zudem ereigneten sich schon eine Reihe von „Cyber-Angriffen“ auf staatliche Einrichtungen, wie z.B. in Estland 2007, in Georgien 2008 oder im Iran 2010. Bei diesen Vorfällen wurde aber nie von einem internationalen „bewaffneten Konflikt“ gesprochen. „Cyber Warfare“ ist im humanitären Völkerrecht (HVR) bisher nicht geregelt. Die vorliegende Arbeit befasst sich damit, ob HVR deshalb generell auf Aktivitäten im Internet Anwendung finden kann und wann eine Cyber-Operation die Schwelle eines „Angriffs“ iSd HVR überschreitet. Anhand der wichtigsten Prinzipien und Normen des HVR werden dann die Eigenheiten und Probleme des Cyberwars beleuchtet. Schließlich wird ermittelt, ob das HVR im aktuellen Zustand für die Bewältigung des Cyberwars ausreicht oder ob ein neues Abkommen geschaffen werden muss, um spezifische Probleme zu überbrücken.

Gleichheit oder Oligarchie, Individualismus oder Unfreiheit, Wahrheit oder Fake News – die Welt, wie wir sie kannten, steht am Scheideweg. Viel hat der Westen selbst dazu beigetragen. Aber er hat auch mächtige Feinde, die seine Institutionen mit allen Mitteln – von der Finanzierung des Rechtspopulismus in Europa bis zum Cyberwar – untergraben wollen. Wer diese Gegner sind, wie sie vorgehen und wie bedrohlich die Lage ist, das beschreibt das aufsehenerregende neue Buch von Tim Snyder. Mit dem Ende des Kalten Krieges hatten die liberalen Demokratien des Westens gesiegt. Von nun an würde die Menschheit eine friedvolle, globalisierte Zukunft erwarten. Doch das war ein Irrtum. Seit Putin seine Macht in Russland etabliert hat, rollt eine Welle des Autoritarismus von Osten nach Westen, die Europ... a erfasst hat und mit Donald Trump auch im Weißen Haus angekommen ist. Tim Snyder, Autor des Weltbestsellers «Über Tyrannei», beschreibt in seinem Buch den Aufstieg dieser neuen «rechten Internationalen», schildert ihre bedrohlichen Ziele und zeigt, wie sehr die Grundlagen unserer Demokratie in Gefahr sind.

Erstmals packen die Hacker aus. Ende des Jahres 2010 nahmen weltweit Tausende an den digitalen Angriffen der Hackergruppe Anonymous auf die Webseiten von VISA, MasterCard und PayPal teil, um gegen die Sperrung der Konten von Wiki-Leaks zu protestieren. Splittergruppen von Anonymous infiltrierten die Netzwerke der totalitären Regime von Libyen und Tunesien. Eine Gruppe namens LulzSec schaffte es sogar, das FBI, die CIA und Sony zu attackieren, bevor sie sich wieder auflöste. Das Anonymous-Kollektiv wurde bekannt durch die charakteristische Guy-Fawkes-Maske, mit der sich die Aktivisten tarnen. Es steht für Spaß-Guerilla und politische Netzaktivisten ohne erkennbare Struktur, die mit Hacking-Attacken gegen die Scientology-Sekte und Internetzensur protestierten. Internetsicherheitsdienste und bald auch die gesamte Welt merkten schnell, dass Anonymous eine Bewegung war, die man sehr ernst nehmen sollte. Doch wer verbirgt sich eigentlich hinter den Masken? Inside Anonymous erzählt erstmalig die Geschichte dreier Mitglieder des harten Kerns: ihren Werdegang und ihre ganz persönliche Motivation, die sie zu überzeugten Hackern machte. Basierend auf vielen exklusiven Interviews bietet das Buch einen einzigartigen und spannenden Einblick in die Köpfe, die hinter der virtuellen Community stehen.

Dass Cyberverbrechen und Cyberwar keine bloß virtuellen Gefahren mehr sind, sickert erst allmählich ins öffentliche und politische Bewusstsein. Als der Computerwurm »Conficker« im November 2008 auf die Welt losgelassen wurde, infizierte er binnen weniger Wochen Millionen von Computern weltweit. War er in ein System eingedrungen, konnte er dieses mit anderen verbinden und so ein Netzwerk bilden, das sich von außen kontrollieren ließ. Ein solch großes Botnetz ist theoretisch in der Lage, sämtliche Computernetzwerke zu überwältigen, ohne die heute unsere Banken, Telefone, Kraftwerke oder Flughäfen, ja sogar das Internet selbst kollabieren würden - mit unabsehbaren Folgen. War »Conficker« nur das Werkzeug von Cyberkriminellen oder gar eine reale militärische Waffe mit so nie dagewesenem Zerstörungspotenzial? Mark Bowden erzählt, wie in einem dramatischen Wettlauf Computerexperten alles daransetzen, den brandgefährlichen Wurm auszuschalten. Packend beschreibt er einen nach wie vor völlig unterschätzten Krieg, der buchstäblich unter unseren Fingerspitzen auf der Tastatur ausgefochten wird.

A generation ago, "cyberspace" was just a term from science fiction, used to describe the nascent network of computers linking a few university labs. Today, our entire modern way of life, from communication to commerce to conflict, fundamentally depends on the Internet. And the cybersecurity issues that result challenge literally everyone: politicians wrestling with everything from cybercrime to online freedom; generals protecting the nation from new forms of attack, while planning new cyberwars; business executives defending firms from once unimaginable threats, and looking to make money off of them; lawyers and ethicists building new frameworks for right and wrong. Most of all, cybersecurity issues affect us as individuals. We face new questions in everything from our rights and responsibilities as citizens of both the online and real world to simply how to protect ourselves and our families from a new type of danger. And yet, there is perhaps no issue that has grown so important, so quickly, and that touches so many, that remains so poorly understood. In Cybersecurity and CyberWar: What Everyone Needs to Know?, New York Times best-selling author P. W. Singer and noted cyber expert Allan Friedman team up to provide the kind of easy-to-read, yet deeply informative resource book that has been missing on this crucial issue of 21st century life. Written in a lively, accessible style, filled with engaging stories and illustrative anecdotes, the book is structured around the key question areas of cyberspace and its security: how it all works, why it all matters, and what can we do? Along the way, they take readers on a tour of the important (and entertaining) issues and characters of cybersecurity, from the "Anonymous" hacker group and the Stuxnet computer virus to the new cyber units of the Chinese and U.S. militaries. Cybersecurity and CyberWar: What Everyone Needs to Know? is the definitive account on the subject for us all, which comes not a moment too soon.

In den letzten Jahren hat sich das Internet schnell zu einem massiven wirtschaftlichen Betätigungsfeld entwickelt, leider auch für illegale Unternehmungen. Das Ausnutzen von Schwachstellen in IKT-Systemen ist inzwischen ein profitables Geschäftsmodell. Das staatlich geförderte Forschungsprojekt CAIS beschäftigte sich deshalb mit der Implementierung eines Cyber Attack Information Systems auf nationaler Ebene mit dem Ziel, die Widerstandsfähigkeit der heutigen vernetzten Systeme zu stärken und ihre Verfügbarkeit und Vertrauenswürdigkeit zu erhöhen. Hauptziele dieses Projektes waren die Identifizierung der künftigen Cyber-Risiken und -Bedrohungen, die Untersuchung neuartiger Techniken zur Anomalieerkennung, die Entwicklung modularer Infrastrukturmodelle und agentenbasierter Simulationen zur Risiko- und Bedrohungsanalyse, und schließlich die Analyse und mögliche Umsetzung eines nationalen Cyber Attack Information Systems.

A while back I wrote two documents called 'Building a Cloud Service' and the 'Convergence Report'. They basically documented my past experiences and detailed some of the issues that a cloud company may face as it is being built and run. Based on what had transpired since, a lot of the concepts mentioned in that particular document are becoming widely adopted and/or are trending towards them. This is a continuation of that particular document and will attempt to analyse the issues that are faced as we move towards the cloud especially with regards to security. Once again, we will use past experience, research, as well as current events trends in order to write this particular report. Personal experience indicates that keeping track of everything and updating large scale documents is difficult and depending on the system you use extremely cumbersome. The other thing readers have to realise is that a lot of the time even if the writer wants to write the most detailed book ever written it’s quite simply not possible. Several of my past works (something such as this particular document takes a few weeks to a few months to write depending on how much spare time I have) were written in my spare time and between work and getting an education. If I had done a more complete job they would have taken years to write and by the time I had completed the work updates in the outer world would have meant that the work would have meant that at least some of the content would have been out of date. Dare I say it, by the time that I have completed this report itself some of the content may have come to fruition as was the case with many of the technologies with the other documents? I very much see this document as a starting point rather than a complete reference for those who are interested in technology security. Note that the information contained in this document is not considered to be correct nor the only way in which to do things. It’s a mere guide to how the way things are and how we can improve on them. Like my previous work, it should be considered a work in progress. Also, note that this document has gone through many revisions and drafts may have gone out over time. As such, there will be concepts that may have been picked up and adopted by some organisations while others may have simply broken cover while this document was being drafted and sent out for comment. It also has a more strategic/business slant when compared to the original document which was more technically orientated. No illicit activity (as far as I know and have researched) was conducted during the formulation of this particular document. All information was obtained only from publicly available resources and any information or concepts that are likely to be troubling has been redacted. Any relevant vulnerabilities or flaws that were found were reported to the relevant entities in question (months have passed). Feedback/credit on any ideas that are subsequently put into action based on the content of this document would be appreciated. Any feedback on the content of this document is welcome.

"Fast 500.000 verkaufte Exemplare in drei Tagen - die Enthüllung von Bushs ehemaligem Terrorberater Richard Clarke schlägt alle Rekorde" (SPIEGEL ONLINE) Binnen weniger Tage wurde "Against All Enemies" zu einem hochbrisanten Politikum, über das die Medien weltweit berichteten. Was macht die Schlagkraft dieses Buches aus? "Die Bush-Administration hat die Gelegenheit verpasst, Al Qaida zu zerschlagen", schreibt Richard A. Clarke. Sie habe alle Warnungen vor Al Qaida ignoriert, in einem unnötigen Krieg gegen Irak wertvolle Zeit verloren und dem Terrorismus Gelegenheit gegeben, sich neu zu organisieren. Wie kein anderer ist Clarke berechtigt, ein solches Urteil zu fällen. Zwei Jahrzehnte seines Lebens hat er dem Kampf gegen den Terrorismus gewidmet. Er war unter Clinton und Bush Cheforganisator der amerikanischen Anti-Terror-Politik und leitete in den entscheidenden Stunden nach den Anschlägenvom 11. September den Krisenstab im Weißen Haus. Sein Bericht, der sich auf die Entwicklungen vom ersten Golfkrieg bis zu "Bushs Vietnam" im Irak konzentriert, liest sich wie ein autobiografischer Thriller.
