The Semantics of Cyber Warfare

The Semantics of Cyber Warfare, Jason Fritz, Bond University. East Asia Security Symposium and Conference. Beijing. Nov. 2013

“The study of cyber warfare in China suffers from the same excess of overlapping terminology as in English documents. This paper will analyze key cyber warfare terms from authoritative sources and show that all of them can be broken down into three fundamental branches that are common to both the People’s Republic of China and the United States of America. The three branches are: Information Operations, Computer Network Operations, and Net Centric Warfare. Streamlined categorizing can aid the efficiency of research and improve inter-agency structure. Additional benefits include more accurate threat assessment, limiting media and public misunderstanding, and increasing transparency to forward cooperation, understanding, and trust.”
