This book is an introduction to both offensive and defensive techniques of cyberdeception. Unlike most books on cyberdeception, this book focuses on methods rather than detection. It treats cyberdeception techniques that are current, novel, and practical, and that go well beyond traditional honeypots. It contains features friendly for classroom use: (1) minimal use of programming details and mathematics, (2) modular chapters that can be covered in many orders, (3) exercises with each chapter, and (4) an extensive reference list.Cyberattacks have grown serious enough that understanding and using deception is essential to safe operation in cyberspace. The deception techniques covered are impersonation, delays, fakes, camouflage, false excuses, and social engineering. Special attention is devoted to cyberdeception in industrial control systems and within operating systems. This material is supported by a detailed discussion of how to plan deceptions and calculate their detectability and effectiveness. Some of the chapters provide further technical details of specific deception techniques and their application. Cyberdeception can be conducted ethically and efficiently when necessary by following a few basic principles. This book is intended for advanced undergraduate students and graduate students, as well as computer professionals learning on their own. It will be especially useful for anyone who helps run important and essential computer systems such as critical-infrastructure and military systems.

In the past few years, intelligence and security informatics (ISI) research, which is concerned with the study of the development and use of advanced information te- nologies and systems for national and international security-related applications, has experienced tremendous growth and attracted substantial interest from academic - searchers in related fields as well as practitioners from both government agencies and industry. The ISI community is maturing, and a core set of research methodologies and technical approaches has emerged and is becoming the underpinning of ISI research. The first two meetings (ISI 2003 and ISI 2004) in the ISI symposium and conf- ence series were held in Tucson, Arizona. With sponsorship by the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society, ISI 2005 was held in Atlanta, Georgia. Building on the momentum of these ISI meetings, we held ISI 2006 in San Diego, California, in May 2006. In addition to the established and emerging ISI technical research topics, ISI 2006 included a track on terrorism informatics, which is a new stream of terrorism research leveraging the latest advances in social science methodologies, and infor- tion technologies and tools.

Cyber weapons and cyber warfare have become one of the most dangerous innovations of recent years, and a significant threat to national security. Cyber weapons can imperil economic, political, and military systems by a single act, or by multifaceted orders of effect, with wide-ranging potential consequences. Unlike past forms of warfare circumscribed by centuries of just war tradition and Law of Armed Conflict prohibitions, cyber warfare occupies a particularly ambiguous status in the conventions of the laws of war. Furthermore, cyber attacks put immense pressure on conventional notions of sovereignty, and the moral and legal doctrines that were developed to regulate them. This book, written by an unrivalled set of experts, assists in proactively addressing the ethical and legal issues that surround cyber warfare by considering, first, whether the Laws of Armed Conflict apply to cyberspace just as they do to traditional warfare, and second, the ethical position of cyber warfare against the background of our generally recognized moral traditions in armed conflict. The book explores these moral and legal issues in three categories. First, it addresses foundational questions regarding cyber attacks. What are they and what does it mean to talk about a cyber war? The book presents alternative views concerning whether the laws of war should apply, or whether transnational criminal law or some other peacetime framework is more appropriate, or if there is a tipping point that enables the laws of war to be used. Secondly, it examines the key principles of jus in bello to determine how they might be applied to cyber-conflicts, in particular those of proportionality and necessity. It also investigates the distinction between civilian and combatant in this context, and studies the level of causation necessary to elicit a response, looking at the notion of a 'proximate cause'. Finally, it analyses the specific operational realities implicated by particular regulatory regimes. This book is unmissable reading for anyone interested in the impact of cyber warfare on international law and the laws of war.

Harro von Senger gilt als DER Experte für chinesische Planungskunst - insbesondere für die "36 Strategeme", die er im Westen bekannt gemacht hat. Die 36 Strategeme sind "Techniken der List" in Gestalt von Sprachformeln wie "Das Schaf mit leichter Hand wegführen" oder "Den dürren Baum mit Blüten schmücken". So gut wie jeder Chinese kennt sie und wendet sie an, während ihre Bedeutung hierzulande unterschätzt oder gar ignoriert wird. "In unserem europäischen Kulturkreis müssen wir lernen, listensensibler zu sein und die List nicht von vornherein zu verteufeln, sondern sie als etwas zum Alltag Gehörendes anzuerkennen. ... Im Chinesischen wird übrigens für die Worte List und Weisheit dasselbe Schriftzeichen benutzt." Harro von Senger

Der 'Cyberkrieg' ist ein hoch brisantes Thema im sicherheitspolitischen Diskurs. Bisher hat sich kein Zwischenfall zugetragen, der durch die Staatengemeinschaft als bewaffneter Konflikt im rechtlichen Sinne anerkannt und ausschließlich mit Cyberangriffen geführt wurde. Und auch wenn ein solcher Cyberkrieg im engeren Sinne zurzeit als unwahrscheinlich gehandelt wird, haben die Staaten das Potenzial und die Gefahr des Einsatzes von Mitteln und Methoden der Cyberkriegsführung erkannt. Die Arbeit zeigt, dass gegenwärtige Computernetzwerkoperationen selten als völkerrechtliche Gewaltanwendung zu qualifizieren sind, die einen internationalen bewaffneten Konflikt auslösen. Zudem wird herausgearbeitet, inwiefern die kampfführungsrechtlichen Vorgaben, die vor dem Hintergrund des Einsatzes konventioneller Waffengewalt entstanden sind, auch im Bereich der Cyberkriegsführung Schutz garantieren können.

This book presents the first reference exposition of the Cyber-Deception Chain: a flexible planning and execution framework for creating tactical, operational, or strategic deceptions. This methodology bridges the gap between the current uncoordinated patchwork of tactical denial and deception (D&D) techniques and their orchestration in service of an organization’s mission. Concepts for cyber- D&D planning operations and management are detailed within the larger organizational, business, and cyber defense context. It examines the necessity of a comprehensive, active cyber denial scheme. The authors explain the organizational implications of integrating D&D with a legacy cyber strategy, and discuss trade-offs, maturity models, and lifecycle management. Chapters present the primary challenges in using deception as part of a security strategy, and guides users through the steps to overcome common obstacles. Both revealing and concealing fact and fiction have a critical role in securing private information. Detailed case studies are included. Cyber Denial, Deception and Counter Deception is designed as a reference for professionals, researchers and government employees working in cybersecurity. Advanced-level students in computer science focused on security will also find this book useful as a reference or secondary text book.

In recent years, the nature of conflict has changed. Through asymmetric warfare radical groups and weak state actors are using unexpected means to deal stunning blows to more powerful opponents in the West. From terrorism to information warfare, the Wests air power, sea power and land power are open to attack from clever, but much weaker, enemies. In this clear and engaging introduction, Rod Thornton unpacks the meaning and significance of asymmetric warfare, in both civilian and military realms, and examines why it has become such an important subject for study. He seeks to provide answers to key questions, such as how weaker opponents apply asymmetric techniques against the Western world, and shows how the Wests military superiority can be seriously undermined by asymmetric threats. The book concludes by looking at the ways in which the US, the state most vulnerable to asymmetric attack, is attempting to cope with some new battlefield realities. This is an indispensable guide to one of the key topics in security studies today.

Erstmals packen die Hacker aus. Ende des Jahres 2010 nahmen weltweit Tausende an den digitalen Angriffen der Hackergruppe Anonymous auf die Webseiten von VISA, MasterCard und PayPal teil, um gegen die Sperrung der Konten von Wiki-Leaks zu protestieren. Splittergruppen von Anonymous infiltrierten die Netzwerke der totalitären Regime von Libyen und Tunesien. Eine Gruppe namens LulzSec schaffte es sogar, das FBI, die CIA und Sony zu attackieren, bevor sie sich wieder auflöste. Das Anonymous-Kollektiv wurde bekannt durch die charakteristische Guy-Fawkes-Maske, mit der sich die Aktivisten tarnen. Es steht für Spaß-Guerilla und politische Netzaktivisten ohne erkennbare Struktur, die mit Hacking-Attacken gegen die Scientology-Sekte und Internetzensur protestierten. Internetsicherheitsdienste und bald auch die gesamte Welt merkten schnell, dass Anonymous eine Bewegung war, die man sehr ernst nehmen sollte. Doch wer verbirgt sich eigentlich hinter den Masken? Inside Anonymous erzählt erstmalig die Geschichte dreier Mitglieder des harten Kerns: ihren Werdegang und ihre ganz persönliche Motivation, die sie zu überzeugten Hackern machte. Basierend auf vielen exklusiven Interviews bietet das Buch einen einzigartigen und spannenden Einblick in die Köpfe, die hinter der virtuellen Community stehen.

In dieser brillanten Abhandlung, die mit philosophischen, vor allem spieltheoretischen Überlegungen ebenso zu überzeugen weiß wie mit fundierten wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen aus der Soziologie, Biologie und Anthroplogie, geht der IT-Sicherheitsexperte Bruce Schneier der Frage nach: Wieviel Vertrauen (der Individuen untereinander) braucht eine lebendige, fortschrittsorientierte Gesellschaft und wieviel Vertrauensbruch darf bzw. muss sie sich leisten?
