Submission + - U.S., China Face Mutually Assured Destruction In Cyber War (threatpost.com)

chicksdaddy writes: "A panel of security and policy experts speaking at the RSA Conference in San Francisco on Wednesday said that, despite dire warnings about the information warfare capabilities of China and other developing nations, the risk of an all-out cyber war is remote, and that the U.S. still holds many of the cards.

Rather than trying to deliver a knock-out cyber war capability, the U.S. should embrace the Cold War notions of containment and mutually assured destruction with advanced nations like China and Russia. Tried and true methods to win security from cyber attacks include international diplomacy, multilateral agreements that clarify the parameters for peaceful and hostile cyber actions and — of course — a strong offensive capability."
