Cyber Warfare, Second Edition, takes a comprehensive look at how and why digital warfare is waged. Cyber attacks are growing every day and they become more complex. Countries can now launch each other multiple cyber attacks without invading their countries. Carr raises serious awareness of these cyber attacks and how every government should address the matter in other to create policies to avoid Jeffrey Carr delivers an extensive in detail explanations of the emerging Cyberwarfare dilemma.

Carr raises serious awareness of these cyber attacks and how every government should address the matter in other to create policies to avoid futures catastrophes. The author is very thorough explaining each concepts. Anybody with a basic knowledge in computer can read the book. It doesn't use any jargon of tech terms. What I really like about this book is that Cyberwarfare is been happening for some time now.
Access to this information is very scarce, as the author said. Reading this book, it positions the reader in time with this new technology. I highly recommend this book because this is how the future wars will be. Armies of Hackers and Engineers. Jul 22, J. This book had real potential. It presented a good collection of views in a logical and precise manner, and didn't just focus on the most well-known cases. However it suffered greatly from its sporadic, inconsistent and sometimes non-existent referencing, which was always badly indicated so much so that whole chapters written by contributes were not clearly indicated.
If this issue were fixed perhaps in a new edition , the book and its academic worth would be greatly improved. Good introduction to the subject. Worth the read for some, background, history and example.

Sep 29, Rick Howard rated it liked it Shelves: csc-warfare , csc-candidate. It is a bit disorganized and much broader then the title implies. But, if you are looking to understand the idea of Cyber War more thoroughly, this is not the book. Review: This is a third Cyber Warfare book that I have read since starting the blog back in December of last year Kramer, Stuart H. First, it feels like it was written by committee.
This is not a bad approach, but these kinds of books are a hodgepodge of writing styles and ideas. I have been involved in a lot of these writing projects in my own career — some successes but many spectacular failures - and in order for it to work, the primary editor has to work hard to tell a coherent story. In my opinion, Carr falls short in that goal. Second, the Book title is misleading. Hactivism is not warfare. Crime is not warfare.

Espionage is not warfare. Terrorism is not warfare. These are all very different things and require nuanced and apportioned thinking to deal with them. Carr points out that it is likely that a couple of governments have coopted some of their local hackers involved in cyber crime and cyber hactivism to participate in Cyber Warfare Russia and Cyber Espionage China activities. He also observes that the tools used by these actors in all four activities are similar in nature.
But then he implies that because both of those things are likely to be true, then that ties all four motivations cyber crime, cyber security, cyber terrorism and cyber espionage into a tangled Gordian knot. I do not think this is true.

Cyber Crime is enmeshed with Cyber War in the same way that other kinds of violent crime are enmeshed with regular war because both activities use guns. It is just not that entangled. Or if it is, Carr does not make the case for it. This all goes to the notion of defining the problem space. What exactly is Cyber War? The security community has been debating this topic for over a decade and nobody can agree.
The three books I have read so far on the subject have wide ranging definitions. This implies that anybody can conduct war: hactivists, commercial entities, non-state actors. Those guys can do damage for sure, but what they are doing is not warfare. First, Clark insists that nation states pursue cyber war activities and nobody else.
This is important when countries deal with the legal authorities they need to conduct such operations. I am pretty sure that the Cyber Criminals, Hactivists and Terrorists of the world are not running their plans through their legal department before they execute them. But a nation state must if it wants to interact on the global stage. President Bush made that decision because he did not have the authority to use military forces against a nation that the US was not officially at war with. But, he did have the authority through the intelligence arm in the same way he has the authority to conduct drone strikes in foreign lands and to assassinate Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan.
Second, Clark says that Cyber War activities must cause some sort of physical damage.
I think that is dead-on because it separates propaganda activities web defacements , espionage activities document exfiltration and criminal activities credit card number theft out of the warfare category. There must be some political goal in mind for any cyber activities that rise to the level of warfare. But as Winterfeld and Andress would likely point out, there are probably many issues with my definition too.
There are things that I did like though and the book is worth the read for them.

As long as the reader understands where Carr is coming from, there are things to learn here. He makes a good case for the power of Open Source Cyber Intelligence; a subject that is near and dear to my heart I was the iDefense Intelligence Director for many years and later the GM. Open Source Intelligence is what we did . Carr recaps Estonia  and Georgia , the examples that many experts roll out when they are looking to describe cyber warfare. When you look at that list, what jumps out at me is that the US, Russia and Israel are all over it.
Russia has been active in the Cyber Warfare space since Matthew Sklerov. Sep 06, Meches rated it did not like it. This book is not useful if you already have a basic IT background or more. I expected some more details about Cyber Warfare, what to expect and how to be prepared technically. I was very disappointed by this book. It just mentions a number of historic events and what happened back then.
