Blast from the past. My 2012 @nullcon talk which isn’t part of the archive. I talked about XKEYSCORE, 1 year before Snowden did🤠. Also, some sexy reverse engineering of 🇨🇳 APTs which targeted Indian officials https://t.co/RXArN7J3wz#nullcondasham CC: @antriksh_s, @aseemjakhar pic.twitter.com/a6lHQF4gHz

Battle-Ready for the Fifth Dimension:
Assessing India’s Cyber-Defence
This article provides a rare behind-the-scenes look at the cyber war and cyber defence
capabilities being developed by various great powers and situates India’s own developments
in this field within the larger context of emerging threats and modernisation of warfare.
The author ascribes the Stuxnet worm of 2010 to be a big eye opener which helped
place India’s cyber security systems on a war footing. He also depicts a future cyber
war scenario in which web-based weapons are integrated into conventional armouries
to achieve the perfect fifth dimension of warfare. The article also describes how experts
and analysts of strategic affairs who are outside the secretive government establishments
dealing with cyber war can contribute to meaningful reforms, institutions and changes
that can facilitate multilateral responses in the form of a global cyber security regime.
