Network Based Attacks In Military Campaigns

Strategy Page has an interesting piece about the use of network based attacks in the recent campaign against Georgia and against Estonia last year. These attacks are not directly carried out by the Russian military, but they are an interesting study of the possibilities for network based attacks in military conflict. It is interesting that they point our that often the compromised machines that participate in these sorts of attacks are located inside government offices. For more information regarding this sort of attack, see this report prepared for Congress.
