Cyberattack as Covert Action

“Most of what we see in day-to-day cybersecurity is not cyberwar, or the perennial threat of the ‚Äėdigital Pearl Harbor.‚Äô Crime, espionage, political vandalism, and military ‚Äúlong-range cyber-reconaissance‚ÄĚ‚Äďrather than kinetic targeting that kills, damages, or disables‚Äďare more mundane, day-to-day concerns. National Defense University‚Äôs Samuel Liles does make a persuasive case that much of cyberwar exists mainly on the ‚Äúlow-intensity warfare‚ÄĚ aspect of the general spectrum of conflict. I propose something of a middle category of operations that may clarify some of the murkier areas of state-sponsored cyberattack: covert action.”
