Cyber cooperation needed

(China Daily)

13:36, November 22, 2011

The United States continues to blame China for alleged intrusions into US government and defense industry computer networks.

This month a report released by the Project 2049 Initiative, a US-based think tank, details China's signals intelligence organization, and what role it thinks the People's Liberation Army has in collecting cyber intelligence.

And last month, a draft report by the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission claimed that cyber hackers "achieved all the steps required to command" a US satellite and claimed the techniques of the hackers "appear consistent with authoritative Chinese military writings".

In the court of public opinion, the US has managed to successfully portray itself as the main victim of cyber attacks.

But it is no secret that the US has already developed an information warfare doctrine and has capability to make cyber attacks on other nations.

Just before the NATO-led air strikes in Libya in March, the Obama administration intensely debated whether to start a cyber offensive to break through the firewalls of the Libyan government's computer networks to sever military communications links.
