Cyber Warfare, Second Edition, takes a comprehensive look at how and why digital warfare is waged. The book explores the participants, battlefields, and the tools and techniques used in today's digital conflicts. The concepts discussed gives students of information security a better idea of how cyber conflicts are carried out now, how they will change in the future, and how to detect and defend against espionage, hacktivism, insider threats and non-state actors such as organized criminals and terrorists. This book provides concrete examples and real-world guidance on how to identify and defend a network against malicious attacks. It probes relevant technical and factual information from an insider's point of view, as well as the ethics, laws and consequences of cyber war and how computer criminal law may change as a result. Logical, physical, and psychological weapons used in cyber warfare are discussed. This text will appeal to information security practitioners, network security administrators, computer system administrators, and security analysts.

"Regardless of where the definition of cyber warfare finally settles, be it simply a war waged over the Internet, a technological cold war, network-based hostilities or simply another theater of war, there are without doubt activities that transpire over the wire that require much closer scrutiny not only by the security community but also by governments, businesses and the general public. The authors accurately and adeptly take the reader from the headlines to the front lines with frequent stops in underground communities, legislative halls and anywhere hackers (ethical or otherwise) are in high demand. This book serves as a report on the current cyber state of affairs on a global scale, as a career guide to those looking to enter this burgeoning field, and, most importantly, as a reference on protecting assets that are unmistakably in the field of battle...whether intended or not."--Donald C. Donzal, Editor-In-Chief, The Ethical Hacker Network "A fifth domain of war has been added to land, air, sea and space: cyber. Malware capable of taking a nuclear program offline was science fiction 5 years ago: Stuxnet demonstrates that information security is now a matter of national security. This timely and necessary book provides an assessment of the current state of cyber warfare, and more importantly, where the conflict is heading. Highly recommended for information security professionals."--Eric Conrad, Lead Author, CISSP Study Guide, President, Backshore Communications
