This book is an introduction to both offensive and defensive techniques of cyberdeception. Unlike most books on cyberdeception, this book focuses on methods rather than detection. It treats cyberdeception techniques that are current, novel, and practical, and that go well beyond traditional honeypots. It contains features friendly for classroom use: (1) minimal use of programming details and mathematics, (2) modular chapters that can be covered in many orders, (3) exercises with each chapter, and (4) an extensive reference list.Cyberattacks have grown serious enough that understanding and using deception is essential to safe operation in cyberspace. The deception techniques covered are impersonation, delays, fakes, camouflage, false excuses, and social engineering. Special attention is devoted to cyberdeception in industrial control systems and within operating systems. This material is supported by a detailed discussion of how to plan deceptions and calculate their detectability and effectiveness. Some of the chapters provide further technical details of specific deception techniques and their application. Cyberdeception can be conducted ethically and efficiently when necessary by following a few basic principles. This book is intended for advanced undergraduate students and graduate students, as well as computer professionals learning on their own. It will be especially useful for anyone who helps run important and essential computer systems such as critical-infrastructure and military systems.

Bridging the divide between theory and practice, Deception: Counterdeception and Counterintelligence provides a thorough overview of the principles of deception and its uses in intelligence operations. This masterful guide focuses on practical training in deception for both operational planners and intelligence analysts using a case-based approach. Authors Robert M. Clark and William L. Mitchell draw from years of professional experience to offer a fresh approach to the roles played by information technologies such as social media. By reading and working through the exercises in this text, operations planners will learn how to build and conduct a deception campaign, and intelligence analysts will develop the ability to recognize deception and support deception campaigns. Key Features New channels for deception, such as social media, are explored to show you how to conduct and detect deception activities through information technology. Multichannel deception across the political, military, economic, social, infrastructure, and information domains provides you with insight into the variety of ways deception can be used as an instrument for gaining advantage in conflict. Contemporary and historical cases simulate real-world raw intelligence and provide you with opportunities to use theory to create a successful deception operation. A series of practical exercises encourages you to think critically about each situation. The exercises have several possible answers, and conflicting raw material is designed to lead readers to different answers depending on how the reader evaluates the material. Individual and team assignments offer you the flexibility to proceed through the exercises in any order and assign exercises based on what works best for the classroom setup.

Cyber weapons and cyber warfare have become one of the most dangerous innovations of recent years, and a significant threat to national security. Cyber weapons can imperil economic, political, and military systems by a single act, or by multifaceted orders of effect, with wide-ranging potential consequences. Unlike past forms of warfare circumscribed by centuries of just war tradition and Law of Armed Conflict prohibitions, cyber warfare occupies a particularly ambiguous status in the conventions of the laws of war. Furthermore, cyber attacks put immense pressure on conventional notions of sovereignty, and the moral and legal doctrines that were developed to regulate them. This book, written by an unrivalled set of experts, assists in proactively addressing the ethical and legal issues that surround cyber warfare by considering, first, whether the Laws of Armed Conflict apply to cyberspace just as they do to traditional warfare, and second, the ethical position of cyber warfare against the background of our generally recognized moral traditions in armed conflict. The book explores these moral and legal issues in three categories. First, it addresses foundational questions regarding cyber attacks. What are they and what does it mean to talk about a cyber war? The book presents alternative views concerning whether the laws of war should apply, or whether transnational criminal law or some other peacetime framework is more appropriate, or if there is a tipping point that enables the laws of war to be used. Secondly, it examines the key principles of jus in bello to determine how they might be applied to cyber-conflicts, in particular those of proportionality and necessity. It also investigates the distinction between civilian and combatant in this context, and studies the level of causation necessary to elicit a response, looking at the notion of a 'proximate cause'. Finally, it analyses the specific operational realities implicated by particular regulatory regimes. This book is unmissable reading for anyone interested in the impact of cyber warfare on international law and the laws of war.

Mitnick führt den Leser in die Denk- und Handlungsweise des Social Engineering ein, beschreibt konkrete Betrugsszenarien und zeigt eindrucksvoll die dramatischen Konsequenzen, die sich daraus ergeben. Dabei nimmt Mitnick sowohl die Perspektive des Angreifers als auch des Opfers ein und erklärt damit sehr eindrucksvoll, wieso die Täuschung so erfolgreich war - und wie man sich effektiv dagegen schützen kann.

In the past few years, intelligence and security informatics (ISI) research, which is concerned with the study of the development and use of advanced information te- nologies and systems for national and international security-related applications, has experienced tremendous growth and attracted substantial interest from academic - searchers in related fields as well as practitioners from both government agencies and industry. The ISI community is maturing, and a core set of research methodologies and technical approaches has emerged and is becoming the underpinning of ISI research. The first two meetings (ISI 2003 and ISI 2004) in the ISI symposium and conf- ence series were held in Tucson, Arizona. With sponsorship by the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society, ISI 2005 was held in Atlanta, Georgia. Building on the momentum of these ISI meetings, we held ISI 2006 in San Diego, California, in May 2006. In addition to the established and emerging ISI technical research topics, ISI 2006 included a track on terrorism informatics, which is a new stream of terrorism research leveraging the latest advances in social science methodologies, and infor- tion technologies and tools.

Harro von Senger gilt als DER Experte für chinesische Planungskunst - insbesondere für die "36 Strategeme", die er im Westen bekannt gemacht hat. Die 36 Strategeme sind "Techniken der List" in Gestalt von Sprachformeln wie "Das Schaf mit leichter Hand wegführen" oder "Den dürren Baum mit Blüten schmücken". So gut wie jeder Chinese kennt sie und wendet sie an, während ihre Bedeutung hierzulande unterschätzt oder gar ignoriert wird. "In unserem europäischen Kulturkreis müssen wir lernen, listensensibler zu sein und die List nicht von vornherein zu verteufeln, sondern sie als etwas zum Alltag Gehörendes anzuerkennen. ... Im Chinesischen wird übrigens für die Worte List und Weisheit dasselbe Schriftzeichen benutzt." Harro von Senger
