Wargames in the Fifth Domain: Mutually Assured Pwnage

A critical look at what Cold War analogies can and cannot teach us about "cyberwar".

Lecturer:    Karin Kosina,, @kyrah

"Cyberwar" has become a thing. Unfortunately, no-one seems to be totally clear on what that thing really is. And so there has been a flurry of attempts to make sense of the brave new world of warfare in the fifth domain by likening it to other, better-understood models of conflict - most notably: the Cold War. To what degree do such comparisons make sense though?

This is not a technical talk about the latest 0day. It is not a historical talk about the Cold War either. (Though you will hopefully learn a few interesting technical details and historical anecdotes from it anyway.) It is an attempt to clarify what the heck that over-used term "cyberwar" is actually supposed to mean, and to contribute to a critical discussion about what the militarisation of cyberspace means for us as a society.

Karin Kosina, virtually known as kyrah, worked for 10+ years in R&D before deciding to go into international relations. She wrote her master's thesis at the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna on Wargames in the Fifth Domain, arguing that "cyberwar" is vastly over-hyped.

Lightning Talks

Lightning Talks are an entertaining format of short lectures presenting current ideas, ongoing projects and particularly work-in-progress. The length of a talk is strictly limited to 5 minutes.

You're invited to add your lightning talk below. Don't hesitate to apply even if you feel your presentation isn't perfectly formulated, this isn't expected for such rather spontaneous talks. Chronological order subject to change:

Who? What? Beamer? record?
