Military Perspectives on Cyberpower
NATIONAL DEFENSE UNIV WASHINGTON DC CENTER FOR TECHNOLOGY AND NATIONAL SECURITY POLICY
Pagination or Media Count:
During the course of nearly two years, the Center for Technology and National Security Policy CTNSP, National Defense University NDU, has conducted extensive research to identify and explore major cyber issues. These activities were performed in response to a request in the 2006 Quadrennial Defense Review QDR. The result of that research is documented in a book entitled Cyberpower and National Security. As part of that research, CTNSP convened several workshops to address challenges in cyberspace, cyberpower, cyberstrategy, and institutional factors. Several representatives from the military Services participated in these workshops. During the workshops, a variety of cyber issues emerged about the roles of the Services in the areas of roles and missions and the creation of needed intellectual capital. When asked if they could contribute to the public debate on these cyber issues, each of the Services identified volunteers who graciously generated white papers to illuminate the cyber debate. These white papers constitute the individual opinions of the contributors who sought to identify and explore the key cyber challenges that the Services must address. To put those contributions in context, Dr. Elihu Zimet and Dr. Charles Barry from CTNSP have written an initial chapter that briefly summarizes the major findings and recommendations from the individual authors. The white papers are as follows A Unified Field Theory for Full-Spectrum Operations Cyberpower and the Cognitive Domain, by Jeffrey G. Smith, Jr. Navy Operations to Achieve Military Power in Cyberspace A Draft Concept for Navy Computer Network Operations, by Michael A. Brown The Air Force in Cyberspace Five Myths of Cyberspace Superiority, by Forrest B. Hare and Glenn Zimmerman and Marine Corps Cyberspace in Support of MAGTF C2 By Many a Marine, with a Single Vision, by John L. Cloninger.
