Interesting but there are more up to date books on this topic. Sep 30, Frank Theising rated it it was ok Shelves: cyberspace. The premise of this book is spot on: Cyberspace is its own medium and therefor follows its own rules i. Unfortunately, the book then spends the next pages laying out the supporting logic for this argument in excruciatingly fine detail that is guaranteed to bore all but the most ardent scholars to tears.
This is n The premise of this book is spot on: Cyberspace is its own medium and therefor follows its own rules i. This is not to say that the arguments are bad, in fact the main points summarized below are really good. Some of the main points in the argument: - Force is a key characteristic of warfare…larger, faster, more powerful militaries typically have an advantage.

In cyberspace, there is no forced entry. Entry is achieved through pathways produced by the system itself i. This suggests that cyberattacks be used sparingly and precisely. One-shot strikes to silence surface-to-air missile systems prior to a kinetic attack for example could prove highly effective. Prolonged cyber campaigns will not be as successful because the longer they go on the more the opponent patches vulnerable code that enables said attacks i. Systems become hardened the longer the cyberattacks continue and any successful prolonged cyber-attacks could invite escalation to physical violence.
Nuclear deterrence had clear attribution, had acknowledged thresholds for retaliation, battle damage was clear, repeat strikes were each as serious as the first, and both sides had a lot to lose. In cyberspace, identifying the attacker attribution is difficult, the opponent may have nothing of value to strike with a cyberattack, and holding targets at risk repeatedly is not necessarily possible.
Likewise, cyberattacks may not always cross a clear threshold for retaliation. Additionally, the actor may not be sanctioned by a government, in such cases, any retaliation risks escalation to military conflict. Jan 02, Froztwolf rated it liked it. Listened to the audiobook. As it is a report done on the behalf of a ranking US officer, it is quite dry and technical but does give a decent ideo of how larger nations today view cybersecurity and cyberwar.
The report suffers for heaving almost no historical events to cite, making it speculative. Regardless, it raises good points as to how cyberwar is different from a "conventional" war, mostly in that Disarmament is nigh impossible and Deterrence is extremely difficult. Focus thus needs to be D Listened to the audiobook.
Focus thus needs to be Defense, which is orders of magnitude more expensive than offense. Another conclusion is that cyberattacks for large nations are unlikely to work as a tactical tool, but more likely to be effective as operational support. Seeing as neither has been tried on any real scale, this is still speculative.
Recommended if you are interested in cyberwarfare and don't mind speculative reports. Jun 13, Matt Heavner rated it liked it. I didn't realize this was a RAND corporation report for the Air Force -- so it was rather dry and written in "strategic speak" at some points if the target does A.. However, it was quite well thought out, and the surprising conclusion I didn't realize this was a RAND corporation report for the Air Force -- so it was rather dry and written in "strategic speak" at some points if the target does A..
However, it was quite well thought out, and the surprising conclusion that cyberdeterrence is not an effective strategy was interesting. It was thought provoking and an interesting read. Nov 22, Jamie rated it did not like it.

I tried to get through this overly verbose book. I made it to the third to last chapter. Too high macro thoughts without practical application. Stayed with the book too long in hopes of some sort of glimmer of new introduction. This book focuses on policy dimensions of cyberspace and cyberwar: what it means, what it entails, and what threats can defend or deter it. Cyberdeterrence and Cyberwar is divided into nine chapters.
Cyberdeterrence and Cyberwar
Chapter One covers the introduction and purpose of the book, which clearly is to focus on military policy as it relates to cyberwar. Chapter Two introduces readers to a conceptual framework for cyberdeterrence and cyberwar. It explains external and internal threats and defines cyberattack and cyberdeterrence. Cyberattack is the deliberate disruption or corruption by one state of a system of interest to another, and cyberdeterrence is the capability in cyberspace to do unto others as they would do unto us.
All decisions, policy or operational, are based on attribution. Chapter Four considers cyberattack and the purpose of the attack. Chapter Five offers a primer for a strategy of response. Chapter Eight is dedicated to cyberdefense and concludes that deterrence in cyber terms may be too problematic to offer much surcease from cyberattacks.
It outlines the goal of cyberdefense to include architecture, strategy and policy. We know now that cyberattacks are a threat that cannot be denied. I would recommend Cyberdeterrence and Cyberwar for the Cybersecurity Canon. Sign up to receive the latest news, cyber threat intelligence and research from us.
