Diplo Internet Governance Community

Stay networked. Get informed. Broadcast your projects.

Hello! This is Luis Henrique from Brazil (IGCBP 2007). I have just started an International Relations specilization course at the University of Brasilia and I am curious about further researching something related to cyberwar for the monograph (still defining scope). So, I am writing to request some references from the network - books, speeches and other relevant sources which might help me to define what is a cyberwar, how it is performed, sovereignty matters, current actions and so on. I appreciate your help!

Plus: any Diplo guys will be at Global Voices Summit in Chile?

Thank you. Best!

Cyberwar is a form of war which takes places on computers and the Internet, through electronic means rather than physical ones. Cyber-warfare, as it is also known, is a growing force in the international community, and many nations regularly run cyberwar drills and games so that they are prepared for genuine attacks from their enemies. With an increasing global reliance on technology for everything from managing national electrical grids to ordering supplies for troops, cyberwar is a method of attack which many nations are vulnerable to.
Cyber warfare is a term used to describe the use of the Internet to wage war in the virtual world, often with real effects in the physical world. Although generally cyber warfare refers to attacks from one sovereign state on another in cyberspace, it may also be used to describe attacks between corporations, from terrorist organizations, or simply attacks by individuals called hackers, who are perceived as being warlike in their intent.
