These are essentially the same as “denial” and “response” in the three elements of deterrence from the DoD document.

Week 6 Discussion 1 – Hackback

Back in Week 1 Discussion 3 the class made a list of actions that could be taken to deter burglaries. Most of the items could be classified as either “defense” or “threat”. These are essentially the same as “denial” and “response” in the three elements of deterrence from the DoD document.

The “threat” category in home burglary really covered threats from two parties – threat from the homeowner (attack dog, gun, land mine) or threat of being caught and therefore prosecuted by law enforcement.

The “response” element of deterrence for cyber attacks could similarly be a response by the victim of the cyber attack or by the government. When a victim attacks the attacker, this is known as “hackback” and was briefly discussed way back on page 64. The main arguments against hackback were mentioned there. The argument in favor of hackback is usually frustration about the lack of government response.

Right now, hackback is illegal because all cyber attacks are illegal. But in home security, you are allowed to “respond” to an attacker under certain circumstances.

So the question for this discussion is “should you be allowed to hackback against a cyber attacker under some circumstances, and if so, what circumstances?”

The answer should be 100 Words.
