Persistent Aggrandizement? Israel’s Cyber Defense Architecture

by Elena Chachkovia Aegis Paper Series
Wednesday, August 26, 2020

This essay compares Israel’s cyber defense architecture and recent reform with key concepts in current US strategy: Defend Forward and Persistent Engagement.

The Domestic Legal Framework For U.S. Military Cyber Operations

by Robert Chesneyvia Lawfare
Wednesday, August 5, 2020

Conventional wisdom holds that Congress has abandoned its duty regarding the government’s war powers. It is not hard to understand why. Between the agelessness and flexibility of the 2001 and 2002 Authorizations for Use of Military Force (AUMFs) and periodic unilateral uses of military force in Libya, Syria, and Iraq, the executive branch appears to act largely at its own discretion when it comes to conventional military operations.

Defend Forward And Cyber Countermeasures

by Ashley Deeksvia Aegis Paper Series

Understanding when and how states may lawfully deploy countermeasures is critical for states operating in the cyber arena—not only to understand their own options when injured but also to anticipate the responses that their cyber activities may trigger from other states. This essay examines the role that countermeasures may play in the US cyber strategy of Defend Forward and argues that some states are developing a lex specialis of cyber countermeasures.

Global Engagement: Rethinking Risk In The Research Enterprise

via Hoover Institution Press
Thursday, July 30, 2020

Neither the US government nor the universities and national laboratories in the US research enterprise are adequately managing the risks posed by research engagements with foreign entities. The task is quite simply falling through the cracks. Data with which to assess the performance of current frameworks for managing foreign engagement risk, to identify their defects, and to devise proportionate fixes is consequently in short supply. Dueling narratives have filled this evidentiary vacuum, pitting some who propose incremental adjustments against others who call for far-reaching change. Without a common set of facts to anchor the debate, consensus has proven elusive. This report offers a way forward.

The Domestic Legal Framework for US Military Cyber Operations

by Robert Chesneyvia Aegis Paper Series
Wednesday, July 29, 2020

With little fanfare, Congress and the executive branch have cooperated effectively over the past decade to build a legal architecture for military cyber operations. The resulting framework is not a familiar one to most observers, especially when compared to the parallel frameworks associated with conventional military operations and with intelligence activities. Yet it is no less important and worthy of study, particularly in light of the Pentagon’s commitment to the “defend forward” operational model.
