Michael Hayden on track NSA
Not gonna work.G
Retired General Michael Hayden, former director of the National Security Agency, said Thursday that one solution being discussed in government is to simply forget about trying to determine if the source of an attack is state-sponsored and hold nations responsible for malicious activity coming from their cyberspace. His words were greeted with applause from the audience of computer security professionals.
Sounds good, why wouldn't this work?
Counter deployment: Iran sets up bots in
Afghan to attack US, and US blames Afghan.
I set up bots in every country ( confliker ) in the world
and attack US, cutting off all the rest of the
countrys effectively cuts US off also.
The individual bots where ever they are
need to be attacked, and owners held
responsible for cleaning up their PC's.
AND THIS IS DOABLE.
There is an out of the box over the
top solution to bring down the bot
PCs en mass during an attack.
This discourages bot masters
from attacking US because they
would loose all their bots,
and wouldn't make any difference
what country the bots were in.
The USA has a significant number
of botted, zombie PCs.
Is the DOD going to close
down US WWW if attacked
The presidential authority
to shut down the WWW,
as far as I can see is worthless.
However the authority to shut
down individual PC's doing a bot
attack is Golden.
And it looks like
Retired General Michael Hayden
just tacitly acknowledged
Fort Meads ability to selectively
cut off most of a countrys access to the
WWW on demand.
A very usefull tool in ones arsenal
