Cyber Warfare and Iraq - Collection Finding Aid



This collection consists of records related to cyber warfare operations in conjunction with Operation Desert Fox in Iraq between December 16 and December 23, 1998. Cyber warfare is something quite new in the history of international conflict. In 1998, the administration released Presidential Decision Directive 63 (PDD/NSC-63) which addressed the increasing vulnerablity of computer networks and called for public and private partnerships to protect these systems. Following the release of PDD-63 and a number of successful attacks against American computer systems the admininstration was much more aware of the growing use of computers as a tool for terrorism or warfare. The collection contains open press articles on cyber warfare as well as FBI National Infrastructure Protection Center (NIPC) warning notices.
