Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to provide a common framework and language for the definition of cyberspace. Specifically, this project looked into three key areas 1 What is cyberspace 2 Why is cyberspace so unique and important and 3 What are the U.S. Air Forces cyberspace capabilities and mission areas An extensive literature review indicates that the fundamental problem of defining cyberspace evolved as cyberspace evolved within each community in the Air Force. The culmination of this effect was an encompassing definition as well as a set of models to graphically depict cyberspace and its interactions with other information domains.
