Informing Active Cyber Defence with Realistic Adversarial Behaviour

Abstract:

In this paper, a cross-disciplinary approach is employed to inform the planning efforts of active cyber defence for military leaders. Militaries across the world are operating under the assumption that cyberspace infrastructure is vulnerable, and potentially compromised, at any given time. Therefore, proactive measures are being taken to secure critical systems, and these measures are known as active cyber defence. In this work, a dataset of empirically observed adversary behaviour activities, collected at the 2015 North American International Cyber Summit (NAICS), is added to an existing cyber warfare simulation framework.

State, Military and Information Warfare Nexus: A Conceptual Perspective from South Asia

Abstract

This paper questions the efficacy of the notion of information warfare (IW) due to implicit militaristic nuances which critically impact on its application as a policy instrument for optimum effects in dynamic sociopolitical spheres.

Cyberspace from the Hybrid Threat Perspective

ABSTRACT

Hybrid threats use conventional and unconventional means to achieve their goals. This paper explores the cyber threats as one possible aspect of hybrid threats. It describes three ways of approaching cyberspace (operations) from the hybrid threats perspective: supporting conventional operations, exploiting non-military systems, and exploring the opportunities provided by this environment. In particular, it highlights the aspects that are or likely will be relevant to the military community.
