About the Event:

Mr. Schneier examined the future of cyber war and cyber security.  He explored the current debate on the threat of cyber war, questioning whether or not the threat had been over-stated, positing that it had. He then explored the range of attacks that have taken place, including the Latvian DOS attack in 2007 and the Stuxnet worm, which was designed to attack an industry control system.

The address concluded with an exploration of the future of international treaties on cyber war, suggesting possible treaties might focus on the appropriateness of attacking civilian targets, the issue of trojan attacks and other topics.
