how Israeli jets bomb a nuclear reactor in Syria in 2007 by hacking into Syrian air defense radar system; the time in 2014 when North Korea hacks Sony's networks to pressure the studio to cancel a major Hollywood blockbuster; and many Dark Territory is the most urgent and controversial topic in national defense polic This is an excellent book a very readable veritable page turner that details in clear understandable terms the technology bureaucratic in fighting and events that have led us to where we are today on the cusp of a revolution in surveillance intelligence and warfareIt s almost a truism that generals fight the last war instead of the present one That is certainly obvious from reading Kaplan s very disturbing history of cyber vulnerabilities in the United States In spite of the efforts of numerous people in the CIA and NSA to alert the Defense establishment to their vulnerabilities top ranking officers for whatever reason ignored the warnings or even misused the information they were given by the intelligence people or failed to take advantage of that informationFor example during the first Ira war General Shwarzkopf was provided with the locations of the fiber optic switching locations that carried all the traffic between Saddam s headuarters and his army in Kuwait Schwarzkopf was happy to bomb those installations but when the transmission were replaced with microwave towers he bombed those too against the advice of the intelligence types who knew that microwave transmission were easily monitored via satellite and available for information harvestingGenerally the military establishment was very skeptical of charges their networks were insecure Ironically it was a movie War Games that motivated not just hundreds of hackers but also Ronald Reagan who after bringing in experts who assured him all that was possible began a campaign to analyze networks Repeatedly the military had to be shown just how insecure the networks were There was the inevitable overreaction by the NSA who wanted to install a chip the Clipper chip in every computer in the country that would monitor transmissions and provide a backdoor for the intelligence community to monitor everything That failed but thanks to Snowden we know that it wasn t needed and the NSA is basically collecting every phone and message transmission in the US close to 2 billion per dayThere was always tension between the NSA and technologists side and civilians The NSA wanted zero days holes open for exploitation in software left open so they could exploit them while those holes could be used by foreign governments and malicious hackers to wreck havoc on the civilian population good for national security bad for individuals When Bush was elected in 2000 all the work of Richard Clarke and George Tenet was thrown out the window Bush wanted nothing to do with Clinton initiatives or people so their warnings about Al aida were dismissed Cheney and Bush were interested in threats from Russia and Iran so they could build their missile defense system In the panic following 911 bureaucratic in fighting for control of the money that was being thrown at terrorism went into overdrive Verisign the company that controls domain and registration web names had analyzed web traffic and discovered that 80% of all the internet traffic in the world flowed through one of two major distribution points in the United States The NSA realized that was a goldmine for information gathering and with the help of Mitch McConnell pushed through features of the Patriot Act that eventually permitted the NSA to store collecting information on US citizens without a warrant was illegal virtually all the internet traffic in the world The ramifications were enormous If for example an American citizen were to have phoned a number anywhere in the world that might have had terrorist connections the NSA could go to a FISA court all in secret to get a warrant to track other calls plus calls made by others this person might have called and calls those people made looking for connections Before you know it that one call which might even have been accidental would result in collecting relationships of millions of Americans thus completely subverting the prohibition against surveilling AmericansOne can only wonder at the immense power granted numerous federal agencies by the Patriot Act which permits so much to be done in secret When I was director of a college library we were very concerned by one feature that pertained to libraries The FBI could walk into the library demand to see the patron records of anyone and it was a federal crime not just to refuse but also even to mention to anyone that they had asked for it Fortunately the library community designed its software to delete any trace of books that had been checked out Having read Kaplan s book I suspect now they wouldn t bother to ask as they have the capability to examine all the metadata of all the internet and phone traffic anywhere in the worldOne can only wonder how Trump were he smart enough might use such incredible power Then again if I were he I would be very afraid of what those same agencies might have on him J Edgar Hoover is salivating in his grave
