This is a comprehensive and detailed view of information warfare. It presents methods, laws, and case examples stressing actual incidents to illustrate such instances. What individuals, corporations, and governments need to know about information-related attacks and defenses! Every day, we hear reports of hackers who have penetrated computer networks, vandalized Web pages, and accessed sensitive information. We hear how they have tampered with medical records, disrupted emergency 911 systems, and siphoned money from bank accounts. Could information terrorists, using nothing more than a personal computer, cause planes to crash, widespread power blackouts, or financial chaos? Such real and imaginary scenarios, and our defense against them, are the stuff of information warfare-operations that target or exploit information media to win some objective over an adversary. Dorothy E. Denning, a pioneer in computer security, provides in this book a framework for understanding and dealing with information-based threats: computer break-ins, fraud, sabotage, espionage, piracy, identity theft, invasions of privacy, and electronic warfare. She describes these attacks with astonishing, real examples, as in her analysis of information warfare operations during the Gulf War. Then, offering sound advice for security practices and policies, she explains countermeasures that are both possible and necessary.

As virtually every aspect of society becomes increasingly dependent on information and communications technology, so our vulnerability to attacks on this technology increases. This is a major theme of this collection of leading edge research papers. At the same time there is another side to this issue, which is if the technology can be used against society by the purveyors of malware etc., then technology may also be used positively in the pursuit of society’s objectives. Specific topics in the collection include Cryptography and Steganography, Cyber Antagonism, Information Sharing Between Government and Industry as a Weapon, Terrorist Use of the Internet, War and Ethics in Cyberspace to name just a few. The papers in this book take a wide ranging look at the more important issues surrounding the use of information and communication technology as it applies to the security of vital systems that can have a major impact on the functionality of our society. This book includes leading contributions to research in this field from 9 different countries and an introduction to the subject by Professor Julie Ryan from George Washington University in the USA.

Modern society is highly dependent on key critical systems either physical or technology based. They have become more significant as the information age has developed and societies have found themselves dependant on these systems. The issue is that these critical systems can be attacked and disrupted via Information Warfare attacks and this is the major theme of this collection of leading edge research. The book assesses how individual countries deal with Information Warfare in terms of protecting critical infrastructures or raising security awareness amongst a population and reflects on other considerations of Information Warfare in terms of the neutrality in Information Warfare, cooperation and the role of activism. The paper uses a number case studies and examples from around the around and particular emphasis is placed upon the Estonian Cyber War and understanding what happened, why it happened and ways to mitigate the situation. This book includes 9 important case studies in this field from 6 different countries and an introduction to the subject by Professor Matthew Warren from Deakin University, Australia. Print version.
