Abstract:

Tensions between China and the Philippines relating to overlapping maritime claims in the South China Sea are likely to persist. Should these tensions escalate, the first shots of any China-Philippines conflict will likely be fired in cyberspace and see China employ its arsenal of potent network warfare capabilities against an opponent that is uniquely vulnerable to cyber attack.
