Abstract:

Computer Network Attack is a significant asymmetric threat to the United States and its military. Motives vary, but the threat from CNA is real US infrastructure targets are vulnerable those that directly affect the ability of the US military to conduct its missions are evident Innovation in CNA is unrestrained, and privacy rights of the US citizenry conflict directly with US government efforts to take active measures to help defend against CNA. CNA today could be economically damaging to the computer and network dependent society that the United States has become. The challenge is to define the problem separately from every other consideration and challenge that the military faces in the Information Age including the broader mission areas of Information Operations and Information Warfare.
