Was ist Cyberwar eigentlich? Wer führt ihn? Gegen wen? Und worum? 2009 legte der Virus „Stuxnet“ ein iranisches Atomkraftwerk lahm. Im Februar 2011 drangen Hacker in die Computer der US -Börse Nasdaq ein, und das deutsche Regierungsnetz wird alle vier Sekunden angegriffen. Unsere Welt ist vernetzt wie nie zuvor, und der digitale Krieg ist im vollen Gange. Der international anerkannte Cyberwar-Experte Dr. Sandro Gaycken zeigt eindrucksvoll, was Cyberwar ist und was er im Ernstfall für uns bedeuten könnte. Denn selbst unsere wichtigsten Infrastrukturen sind Angriffen aus dem Netz fast schutzlos ausgeliefert. In China hingegen erfolgt sämtlicher Internet-Verkehr aus dem Ausland über vier Zugänge. Das Land kann sich komplett abschotten.

Cyberspace, where information—and hence serious value—is stored and manipulated, is a tempting target. An attacker could be a person, group, or state and may disrupt or corrupt the systems from which cyberspace is built. When states are involved, it is tempting to compare fights to warfare, but there are important differences. The author addresses these differences and ways the United States protect itself in the face of attack.

Cyber-"War" - Testfall der Staatenverantwortlichkeit

Category: Law

Page: 282

English summary: Cyber attacks are not only a relatively new phenomenon, but also raise serious technical and legal concerns. Usually the victim does not possess any information about the origin of the attacker and/or the attack. Sven-Hendrik Schulze reveals whether, and if so how, the concept of state responsibility applies in such situations of uncertainty, and, if this concept is reaching its limits, which alternative measures should be taken in the future. German description: Cyber-Angriffe sind ein Kind des Informationszeitalters, ein Resultat enormer Abhangigkeiten und globaler Vernetzung, eine Konsequenz zunehmender finanzieller sowie technologischer Kluftenbildung zwischen den Staaten und eine Folge freier Verfugbarkeit. Kurzum: die Angriffsform der heutigen Zeit. Zentrales Problem aus Sicht der Opfer, seien es Staaten, Unternehmen oder anderweitige Akteure, ist die sich in der Regel erfolglos gestaltende Ruckverfolgung dieser Angriffe. Sven-Hendrik Schulze untersucht, ob und gegebenenfalls wie das traditionelle Konzept der Staatenverantwortlichkeit in diesen Situationen des Nicht-Wissens Anwendung findet. Sollten diese althergebrachten Regeln an ihre Grenzen stossen, so zeigt er auf, welche alternativen Massnahmen in Zukunft auf internationaler, regionaler und nationaler Ebene durch die Staaten getroffen werden sollten.

The Secret History of Cyber War

“An important, disturbing, and gripping history” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review), the never-before-told story of the computer scientists and the NSA, Pentagon, and White House policymakers who invent and employ cyber wars—where every country can be a major power player and every hacker a mass destroyer. In June 1983, President Reagan watched the movie War Games, in which a teenager unwittingly hacks the Pentagon, and asked his top general if the scenario was plausible. The general said it was. This set in motion the first presidential directive on computer security. From the 1991 Gulf War to conflicts in Haiti, Serbia, Syria, the former Soviet republics, Iraq, and Iran, where cyber warfare played a significant role, Dark Territory chronicles a little-known past that shines an unsettling light on our future. Fred Kaplan probes the inner corridors of the National Security Agency, the beyond-top-secret cyber units in the Pentagon, the “information warfare” squads of the military services, and the national security debates in the White House to reveal the details of the officers, policymakers, scientists, and spies who devised this new form of warfare and who have been planning—and (more often than people know) fighting—these wars for decades. “An eye-opening history of our government’s efforts to effectively manage our national security in the face of the largely open global communications network established by the World Wide Web….Dark Territory is a page-turner [and] consistently surprising” (The New York Times).

Der Politikwissenschaftler Thomas Rid ist sich sicher: Ein Cyberkrieg findet nicht statt. Den bisher dokumentierten Cyberattacken fehlen die zielgerichtete Gewalt gegen Menschen und die brutale Zerstörung, die untrennbar mit einem Krieg verbunden sind. Beruhigt zurücklehnen können wir uns dennoch nicht. Denn Thomas Rid macht auch klar, dass aus dem Cyberspace durchaus reale Gefahren wie Spionage, Sabotage und Subversion drohen. Kenntnisreich und spannend erzählt er von Spionageangriffen, von Sabotageakten und von Versuchen, mithilfe der Informationstechnologie Regierungen zu destabilisieren und Umstürze einzuleiten. Wir müssen begreifen, wer vom Mythos Cyberwar profitiert. Und wir müssen definieren, welchen Gefahren wir wirklich ausgesetzt sind, um den Sicherheitsanforderungen gut vorbereitet begegnen zu können.

Schlachtfeld Megacities Es gibt praktisch kein System, das nicht gehackt, gestört, manipuliert und lahmgelegt werden kann. Florian Rötzer zeigt, wie in unseren Smart Cities aus einem Ausfall des Stromnetzes eine nationale Katastrophe entstehen kann, weil alles miteinander zusammenhängt und von einer einzigen Quelle abhängig ist. Überall auf der Welt wachsen die Städte und werden zu Megacities, es entstehen dicht vernetzte urbane Korridore. Militärstrategen bereiten sich auf militärische Interventionen in Megacities vor, deren Ausmaße und Komplexität alle Kriegsgebiete in den Schatten stellen, für die Streitkräfte strategisch und technisch gerüstet sind. Wichtiger wird dabei auch zunehmend die Dimension des Cyberwar. Je "smarter" ein Land oder eine Stadt, je digitaler die Infrastruktur, je größer das Internet der Dinge, je mehr Daten und Prozesse in die Cloud, also in Rechenzentren, ausgelagert werden, desto anfälliger werden sie auch für Cyberangriffe und Cyberwar.

The Evolution of Cyber War

Former secretary of defense Leon Panetta once described cyber warfare as “the most serious threat in the twenty-first century,” capable of destroying our entire infrastructure and crippling the nation. Already, major cyber attacks have affected countries around the world: Estonia in 2007, Georgia in 2008, Iran in 2010, and most recently the United States. As with other methods of war, cyber technology can be used not only against military forces and facilities but also against civilian targets. Information technology has enabled a new method of warfare that is proving extremely difficult to combat, let alone defeat. And yet cyber warfare is still in its infancy, with innumerable possibilities and contingencies for how such conflicts may play out in the coming decades. Brian M. Mazanec examines the worldwide development of constraining norms for cyber war and predicts how those norms will unfold in the future. Employing case studies of other emerging-technology weapons—chemical and biological, strategic bombing, and nuclear weaponry—Mazanec expands previous understandings of norm-evolution theory, offering recommendations for U.S. policymakers and citizens alike as they grapple with the reality of cyber terrorism in our own backyard.

Die unterschätzte Gefahr: wie Cyberattacken jeden einzelnen von uns bedrohen Wir sind abhängig vom Internet. Der Strom aus der Steckdose, das Geld aus dem Automaten, die Bahn zur Arbeit, all das funktioniert nur, wenn Computer und Netze sicher arbeiten. Doch diese Systeme sind verwundbar – und werden immer häufiger gezielt angegriffen. Deutschland mit seiner stark vernetzten Industrie und Gesellschaft, mit seiner hochentwickelten und deshalb umso verwundbareren Infrastruktur hat die Gefahr aus dem Netz lange ignoriert. Erst durch die wachsende Zahl und die zunehmende Massivität der Cyberangriffe sind Politik, Wirtschaft und Bürger aufgewacht. In ihrem ebenso spannenden wie aufrüttelnden Buch sagen die Computersicherheitsexperten Constanze Kurz und Frank Rieger, wer uns bedroht und was wir tun müssen, um unsere Daten, unser Geld und unsere Infrastruktur zu schützen.
