Sam Liles – Cyber Fugue

Professor Sam Liles over at Selil has a though provoking post on cyber war – Cyber Fugue. Several ideas worth keeping in mind when one talks about cyber warfare – differentiating between cyber warfare and computer security, the human element in cyber warfare, the loss of perception that conflicts are cross-domain etc.

It is easy to discuss the catastrophic and fear inducing cascading failure to gain support for the cybergeddon treatise. There are certain inherent fear responses that must be present for an argument of cybergeddon to be accepted as real thus requiring a response. Absent unreasoning fear and accepting evidence to the contrary a rational decision can only be met by decrying cybergeddon as a fairly tale. This does not suggest that cybergeddon could not happen anymore than saying land warfare would be used as a single terrain to answer end-of-the-world war scenarios. Any substantial conflict is going to be a hybrid war but a blind eye to any domain could be the fulcrum that asymmetric warfare is balanced upon.
