Cyber Commander’s Handbook

Cyber Commander's HandbookThe global reliance on computers, networks and systems continues to grow. As our dependency grows so do the threats that target our military s Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems as well as the operational components and electronic controls for our critical infrastructure. Over the past decade we have experienced a substantial rise in the complexity and sophistication of cyber attacks as well as a frightening increase in the impact of some of the attacks. Every computer is a potential cyber weapon waiting to be loaded and used by extremists, criminals, terrorists and rogue nation states. As the world becomes more and more dependent on computers and information technology, the greater the risk of cyber attacks. Government and military leaders now face this fact and our critical systems and infrastructure remain at great risk! This risk has made the ability to defend these critical systems and direct cyber attacks core capabilities required for the modern military. In the age of cyber conflict, leaders need to understand the weapons and strategies used to wage this rapidly evolving type of warfare. This handbook will provide the background needed to understand the new world of cyber warfare, define the tools and techniques for offensive and defensive action, and provide insight into the strategies behind building a dynamic and relevant cyber warfare capability.

Analysis and Evaluation of Denial of Service attacks: on IEEE 802.11 Networks

Analysis and Evaluation of Denial of Service attacks: on IEEE 802.11 NetworksDespite their popularity and wider deployment, IEEE 802.11 WLANs have been found to be vulnerable to security threats soon after their emergence requiring adoption of security measures. However, the introduced security measures didn’t provide solutions for Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. This book characterizes the DoS attacks based on their ease of applicability and the degree of severity they introduce, and evaluates countermeasures for efficiency and effectiveness in defending against the attacks. Among various DoS attacks, Authentication Request Flooding (AuthRF) and Association Request Flooding (AssRF), which are practical and needing lesser effort to cause damage, were selected for study using OMNET++ simulation environment embedding INET Framework. Designs and models have been developed for the selected attacks and for two versions of defenses: countermeasure and enhanced countermeasures. The studied attacks, AuthRF and AssRF, required less effort and caused severe damage. Both versions of defenses, Countermeasure and Enhanced countermeasure, are effective although they incur delay.

Safeguarding Infrastructure from Cyber-terrorism: Measuring and Protecting SCADA

Safeguarding Infrastructure Assets from Cyber-terrorism: Measuring and Protecting SCADA systems from Cyber-terrorists in AustraliaTerrorist groups are currently using information and communication technologies to orchestrate their conventional attacks. More recently, terrorists have been developing a new form of cyber-capability to coordinate cyber attacks. This book explores the possibility that cyber-terrorists may have developed or may have future capabilities to attack critical infrastructure by accessing Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems within Australia and throughout the world. The book characterises the Australian security and terrorism environment and discusses the vulnerability of Australian computer systems and control systems. It also discusses the cyber-capability of various terrorist groups, SCADA risk evaluation methods and presents a framework to measure and protect SCADA systems from the threat of cyber-terrorism within Australia. This framework forms the main basis of this research and is examined by three focus group interviews, signifying the need for new counter-terrorism security models to assist with assessing new cyber security threats such as cyber-terrorism. This contribution is of great value to the SCADA community and organisations.

Hack Attacks Encyclopedia: A Complete History of Hacks, Cracks, Phreaks, and Spies

Hack Attacks Encyclopedia: A Complete History of Hacks, Cracks, Phreaks, and Spies over TimeA complete library of the hottest, never-before-published underground hack variations
In his highly provocative books, Hack Attacks Revealed (0-471-41624-X) and Hack Attacks Denied (0-471-41625-8), corporate hack master John Chirillo described the tools, techniques, and primary code that hackers use to exploit network security loopholes and then shows specific methods for blocking these attacks. However, now that so many of their standard techniques have been revealed, underground hackers and cyberpunks are again skirting the system, going beyond primary code, and resorting to using complex code variations of old techniques. That’s where this book breaks new ground–by providing, for the first time, the most comprehensive compendium of all the complex variations of these techniques, both historical and current, that the hacking underground doesn’t want you to see. It offers astounding details on just about every tool used by those who break into corporate networks–information that will go a long way toward helping you close any remaining security gaps. An ideal companion volume to the other “Hack Attacks” books, Hack Attacks Complete:
o Covers hacks from the 1970s all the way to new millennium hacks
o Details every permutation, variation, and category of hacking tools
o Categorizes hacks for easy reference, with such categories as hacking, cracking, phreaking, spying, anarchy and underground spite, and hack/phreak technical library

Cyber Warriors at War

Cyber Warriors at WarDr. Berg P. Hyacinthe (PhD, Florida State University; LLD Candidate, Assas School of Law, CERSA-CNRS, La Sorbonne) is internationally recognized as an eminent and multidisciplinary scientific investigator. A U.S. patent holder featured in Harvard’s Smithsonian/NASA Astrophysics Data System, Dr. Hyacinthe recently served as Assistant Professor and Scientific Advisor to Taibah University’s Strategic Science & Advanced Technology Unit. Dr. Hyacinthe held several positions at County and State levels of the U.S Government in the Information Technology arena. He has been featured in conferences held at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey (author); Defence Academy of the United Kingdom, Shrivenham (invited session Chair); and National Defence College, Helsinki (session Chair). In CYBER WARRIORS AT WAR, he draws on the triangular relationship between technology, law, and Information Age warfare to propose solutions against potential charges of having committed Information Operations (IO) war crimes and/or IO crimes against humanity. According to Dr. Hyacinthe, the success of pre-emptive strikes and decisive military operations depends profoundly upon both reliable human intelligence and the versatile skills of 21st century “cyber warriors” whose IO activities are conducted through modern warfare’s pentagonal synchrony – land, sea, air, cyberspace, and outer space. Unfortunately, these operations are commonly effectuated under a legal reasoning that is ambiguous in important ways: a threat to the national security of the United States of America and to the entire international community. Hence, as this Essay argues, the evolution of modern computer systems as weapons of war compels wary jurists to turn to the laws that should govern development and use of lethal information technologies. Further, this Essay examines how certain military operations within Information Warfare (IW) require new legal framework, and recounts specific events involving various types of IW conduct and cyber attack: an interesting exposé to jurists, military personnel, policymakers, and the growing and diverse body of information professionals around the world.
