From the thesis abstract: "The purpose of this monograph is to describe the future road ahead for the US Cyber community in light of the recent technical and strategic developments in the state of cyber warfare. The paper began with a realization that cyber attacks have now become weaponized, and have the ability to command computer-guided machines to destroy themselves. In effect, kinetic strikes are now possible through the means of cyber attacks. Cyber attacks have therefore become kinetic in nature. Moreover, a history of such attacks has indicated the offense is significantly more powerful than the defense, and that there have been numerous examples where attacks easily and decisively defeated defensive schemes. However, the American cyber community is not unified, has no common doctrine, budget, educational or recruiting infrastructure."
