Parallels of Using Cyber Assets to Manipulate Physics in Traditional Military Operations

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Vulnerabilities such as Aurora use remote access (cyber) controls to initiate physics issues leading to unstable operation and kinetic damage. Reconnaissance efforts to understand the potential targets are often available from public sources in combination with cyber-vulnerable applications that enable downloading malware such as BlackEnergy to map the systems of interest. These types of issues are not readily identified as being cyber-related, can affect multiple locations, and attribution is very difficult.

The parallel issues for military operations would be at the tactical, operational and strategic levels where cyber key terrain is known and unknown, identifying the dependencies missions have on networks and infrastructure vulnerable to automated, complex, physical processes and poorly understood or malicious use of those physical systems.
