ABSTRACT

Warfare by Internet, the Logic of Strategic Deterrence, Defense and Attack   [open pdf - 1MB]

"Adversaries threatening our national security in the modern era will be hostile states, violent extremists, and even criminal syn¬dicates. What fundamental principles should guide our security policies in meeting these threats in the cyberelectromagnetic dimension of global con¬flict? What strategic logic of deterrence, defense, and attack should guide the military doctrines of advanced industrialized nations like the United States and its allies? Would such logic be similar to that of warfare in general, or is it counterintuitive in some important ways? The purpose of this article is to explore possible answers to these kinds of questions by engaging in an excavation of the conditions in which vital information infrastructures of modern industrial states are at stake."
