Cyberdeterrence and Cyberwar

The concerns surrounding the protection of cyberspace as a function of national security are rather serious, particularly in light of recent acts of cyberterrorism against various government agencies and the like. This document from the RAND Corporation's Martin C. Libicki offers a look into how a "cyberwar" might affect various networks, counterattack strategies, the value of deterrence, and how the United States might defend against such an attack. The 213-page paper has nine chapters, including "Strategic Cyberwar" and "Operational Cyberwar". Additionally, the report has three appendixes, include the "The Dim Prospects for Cyber Arms Control". For persons studying international relations, security studies, and related fields this report will be most useful.
