Stefan Schumacher explains how conventional wars compare to the idea of "Cyberwar" and how modern military doctrine may have to be adjusted. The talk was held at the DeepSec 2010 conference. Author's summary: „Cyber War has been defined by Richard A. Clarke as --actions by a nation-state to penetrate another nation’s computers or networks for the purposes of causing damage or disruption.-- The Economist describes cyber war as --the fifth domain of warfare, after land, sea, air and space--. Barack Obama declared America’s digital infrastructure to be a --strategic national asset,-- and in May 2010 the Pentagon set up its new Cyber Command to defend American military networks and attack other countries’ systems. In 2008, the DDos Attacks on Estonia and Case Studies from Estonia and Georgia have been discussed at DeepSec from a technical PoV. This Talk will show how Cyber War is discussed in Political Science and the Military and if a Cyber World War is possible. Additonally I will also discuss possible Threats through Technology used by enemy Countries and Insurgent Groups and how Politics, Society and Technology have to cooperate to avoid Cyber War. “
