Cyber Warfare

Course #EC4765

Est.imated Completion Time: 3 months


Cyber warfare explored from an electrical engineering perspective. Historical examples of military cyber warfare operations are reviewed. Rudimentary denial-of-service techniques are initially discussed and progress to intelligent waveform-specific forms of computer network attack (CNA). The effect of communications signaling manipulation is analyzed in examples involving mobile wireless networks such as Global Systems Mobile (GSM), and the IEEE 802.11 and 802.16 standards. Extension of cyber warfare concepts to large scale systems is presented to include concepts in distributed denial of service attacks, distributed storage, distributed sensor coordination, and information exfiltration.
