Abstract:

Notwithstanding potential adversaries may try to attack national vital infrastructures thorough internet as a means of warfare, it is extremely difficult to distinguish an offensive cyber attack as a military activity from cyber criminals or cyber vandals. Despite of these difficulties, cyber-attack identification capability is essential for a nation to defend her vital infrastructures against offensive cyber warfare. Although the necessity of cyber-attack identification capability is quite clear, the Japans preparation against cyber warfare is quite limited.
