Abstract:

America can no longer rely on broad oceans and a strong military to protect its homefront. The arrival of the information age has created a new menace cyber terrorism. This threat recognizes no boundaries, requires minimal resources to mount an attack, and leaves no human footprint at ground zero. This study addresses technology, identification procedures, and legal ambiguity as major issues, for countering cyber terrorism as an emerging challenge to U.S. national security. As Americas reliance on computer technology increases, so does its vulnerability to cyber attacks.
