Summary : The establishment of US Cyber Command in
2010 confirmed that cyberspace is a new domain
of warfare. Computers are now both a weapon
and a target. Future wars may even be fought
over the ownership of IT infrastructure. Therefore,
national security thinkers must find a way to
incorporate cyber attack and defense into military
doctrine as soon as possible. The worlds most
influential military treatise is Sun Tzus Art of
War. Its wisdom has survived myriad revolutions
in technology and human conflict, and future
cyber commanders will find Sun Tzus guidance
beneficial. However, this presentation will also
consider 10 revolutionary aspects of cyber war
that will be difficult to fit into military doctrine.
