Bytes, Bombs, and Spies: The Strategic Dimensions of Offensive Cyber Operations

#ad
Brookings Institution Press #ad - Defense strategy and their role will grow larger. But just what offensive cyber weapons are and how they could be used remains clouded by secrecy. This new volume by amy zegart and Herb Lin is a groundbreaking discussion and exploration of cyber weapons with a focus on their strategic dimensions. We have never done that before.

U. S. Defense department officialA new era of war fighting is emerging for the U. S. It brings together many of the leading specialists in the field to provide new and incisive analysis of what former CIA director Michael Hayden has called “digital combat power” and how the United States should incorporate that power into its national security strategy.

Bytes, Bombs, and Spies: The Strategic Dimensions of Offensive Cyber Operations #ad - We are dropping cyber bombs. Hi-tech weapons have given way to hi tech in a number of instances recently: A computer virus is unleashed that destroys centrifuges in Iran, slowing that country’s attempt to build a nuclear weapon. Isis, which has made the internet the backbone of its terror operations, finds its network-based command and control systems are overwhelmed in a cyber attack.

A number of north korean ballistic missiles fail on launch, reportedly because their systems were compromised by a cyber campaign. Offensive cyber operations like these have become important components of U. S. Military.

Cyber Strategy: The Evolving Character of Power and Coercion

#ad
Oxford University Press #ad - The result will be the first broad evaluation of the efficacy of various strategic options in a digital world. The authors investigate cyber strategies in their integrated and isolated contexts, demonstrating that they are useful for maximizing informational asymmetries and disruptions, and thus are important, but limited coercive tools.

To this end, the book establishes a theoretical framework in the coercion literature for evaluating the efficacy of cyber operations. This empirical foundation allows the authors to explore how leading actors employ cyber strategy and the implications for international relations in the 21st century. When cyber operations do produce concessions between rival states, economic sanctions, they tend to be part of a larger integrated coercive strategy that combines network intrusions with other traditional forms of statecraft such as military threats, and diplomacy.

They are additive instruments that complement traditional statecraft and coercive diplomacy. The book combines an analysis of cyber exchanges between rival states and broader event data on political, military, and economic interactions with case studies on the leading cyber powers: Russia, China, and the United States.

Cyber Strategy: The Evolving Character of Power and Coercion #ad - While most military plans involving cyber attributes remain highly classified, the authors piece together strategies based on observations of attacks over time and through the policy discussion in unclassified space. Yet, what is cyber strategy? how do actors use cyber capabilities to achieve a position of advantage against rival states?This book examines the emerging art of cyber strategy and its integration as part of a larger approach to coercion by states in the international system between 2000 and 2014.

As a contemporary form of covert action and political warfare, cyber operations rarely produce concessions and tend to achieve only limited, signaling objectives.
