Cyber conflict - the enemy online

1 juin 2015 by NATO


Who should be most worried about cyber attacks? The man on the street, who wants to protect his wallet? Or the military commander, who wants to protect his country?

We travel to Tallinn in Estonia for CyCon – The NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence’s International Conference on Cyber Conflict. In 2007 Estonia was momentarily crippled by a cyber attack on parliament, banks and the media – an attack that changed the way military organisations around the world viewed their responses to network security, and led to the start of the Centre of Excellence. Now, eight years later, NATOChannel asks some of the world’s leading experts in cybercrime how it has developed? How sizable is the threat? And what’s being done to combat it?

CyCon 2014 Brought Together 450 Experts to Discuss Active Cyber Defence



International Conference on Cyber Conflict (CyCon) closed today after three and a half days of talks and workshops on active cyber defence. The conference brought together more than 450 people from 35 countries. The conference ran in two parallel tracks with one concentrating on the technical issues and another on the law and strategy questions.

The opening keynote was given by H. E. Toomas Hendrik Ilves, President of the Republic of Estonia who reminded the audience the basic principles of Internet freedom and privacy, noting that we may have gone from worrying too little to worrying too much and we are seeing cyber issues where there are none. Dr Jamie Shea, NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary General for Emerging Security Challenges gave an overview on how NATO has and still is changing its perception of cyber.

The conference span over three and a half days with Tuesday as the pre-conference workshop day. Talks in two parallel tracks covered a wide spectrum of topics from IPV6 and Cloud Computing to ethics and biohacking. For the first time in CyCon’s history a special student award was given out to support and motivate junior researchers doing their studies in cyber defence. The winner of the student awards was Marco Lancini from the Politecnico di Milano.  

Preparations for CyCon 2015 have already begun with a Call for Papers announced during the closing remarks. Next year’s CyCon will focus on the construction of the Internet and its potential future development. The conference solicits original unpublished research, applications and experience papers and the deadline for abstract submissions is 1 October 2014.

CyCon 2014 was supported by Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE, technical sponsor), Microsoft (diamond sponsor), Intel Security, Cisco & Lancope, Verint (gold sponsors), IBM and Ixia (sponsors).

NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence is an International Military Organisation located in Tallinn, Estonia. It is not an operational centre and does not fall within the NATO command structure; it is guided and financed by the nations participating in its work. Centre’s mission is to enhance the capability, cooperation and information sharing among NATO, its member nations and partners in cyber defence by virtue of education, research and development, lessons learned and consultation.

La délicate collaboration internationale en matière de cyber-défense


03.06.2014 Jerome Saiz - http://magazine.qualys.fr

Alors que l’OTAN réunit un panel d’experts cyber à l’occasion de la conférence CyCon (du 3 au 6 juin à Tallinn, en Estonie), force est de constater que le cyber occupe encore une place à part en matière de défense internationale.

Car si les Etats se promettent depuis longtemps de faire défense commune dans le cadre d’accords d’assistance bi-latéraux ou au sein d’organisations internationales telles l’OTAN ou l’Union Européenne, en matière de cyber-défense tout reste encore à faire.

Prenons, par exemple, l’idée d’un « parapluie cyber », calqué évidemment sur la notion de parapluie nucléaire : un Etat, disposant d’une capacité de cyber-défense avancée, pourrait proposer à d’autres de les faire bénéficier de sa protection en échange, par exemple, du placement de sondes de détection avancées sur les réseaux de ces derniers. Outre l’effet dissuasif, les Etats associés deviendraient alors également des méta-capteurs d’information et ils pourraient également bénéficier, au-delà d’une protection en cas d’attaque informatique, de l’accès à une expertise ou une formation cyber qui leur fait défaut.

L’idée nous semblait bonne et nous imaginions déjà la France jouer un rôle de premier plan dans ces relations internationales 2.0.

Jusqu’à ce que nous ayons l’occasion d’en discuter avec un officier de l’Etat-major des armées. Le concept de parapluie cyber est alors vite passé à la trappe, mais la réflexion qui s’en est suivie a permis de faire le point sur la notion encore naissante d’assistance internationale dans le domaine de la cyber-défense. Et de constater qu’à l’inverse du parapluie le besoin d’assistance en matière de cyber-défense est, quant à lui, bien réel.
