Richard Clarke warned America once before about the havoc terrorism would wreak on our national security--and he was right. Now he warns us of another threat, silent but equally dangerous. CYBERWAR is a powerful book about technology, government, and military strategy, about criminals, spies, soldiers, and hackers. This is the first book about the war of the future--and a convincing argument that we may already be in peril of losing it.
Written with Clarke?s trademark vigor and insider knowledge, CYBERWAR goes behind the "geek talk" jargon of hackers and computer scientists to clearly and convincingly explain what cyberwar is, how cyber weapons work, and how vulnerable we are as a nation and as individuals to the vast and looming web of cyber criminals. From the first cyber crisis meeting in the White House a decade ago to the boardrooms of Silicon Valley and the electrical tunnels under Manhattan, Clarke traces the rise of the cyber age and profiles the unlikely characters and places who are at the epicenter of the battlefield. He recounts the foreign cyberspies who hacked into the office of the Secretary of Defense, the control systems for US electric power grids, and the plans to protect America?s latest fighter aircraft.
Economically and militarily, Clarke argues, what we?ve already lost in the new millenium?s cyber battles is tantamount to the Soviet and Chinese theft of our nuclear bomb secrets in the 1940?s and 1950?s. The possibilities of what we stand to lose in an all--out cyberwar-our individual and national security among them--are just as chilling. Powerful and convincing, CYBERWAR begins the critical debate about the next great threat to national security.
