Chinese Technology Platforms Operating In The United States

by Gary P. Corn, Jennifer Daskal, Jack Goldsmith, John C. "Chris" Inglis, Paul Rosenzweig, Samm Sacks, Bruce Schneier, Alex Stamos, Vincent Stewartvia Hoover Institution Press
Thursday, February 11, 2021

The Trump administration took various steps to effectively ban TikTok, WeChat, and other Chinese-owned apps from operating in the United States, at least in their current forms. The primary justification for doing so was national security. Yet the presence of these apps and related internet platforms presents a range of risks not traditionally associated with national security, including data privacy, freedom of speech, and economic competitiveness, and potential responses raise multiple considerations. This report offers a framework for both assessing and responding to the challenges of Chinese-owned platforms operating in the United States.


Cyberattack Attribution As Empowerment And Constraint

by Kristen E. Eichensehrvia Aegis Paper Series
Friday, January 15, 2021

When a state seeks to respond to a cyberattack, must it first attribute the attack to the perpetrator responsible? This essay explores the international and US domestic laws governing cyberattack attribution and argues that attribution to another state can bolster the US executive branch’s authority to act pursuant to its Defend Forward policy and, conversely, that the absence of attribution can place the executive on less certain legal footing.


Trust is the Coin of the Realm

by George P. Shultzvia Hoover Institution Press
Friday, December 11, 2020

When George Shultz first joined President Nixon's administration, Washington hand Bryce Harlow offered him a piece of advice that Secretary Shultz has carried with him to this day: “Trust is the coin of the realm.” Now, on his 100th birthday, Shultz reflects on that lesson across a century of experiences in this personal note to friends and colleagues. "When trust was in the room, whatever room that was—the family room, the schoolroom, the coach’s room, the office room, the government room, or the military room—good things happened. When trust was not in the room, good things did not happen. Everything else is details."

US Cyber Command’s First Decade

by Michael Warnervia Aegis Paper Series
Thursday, December 3, 2020

United States Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) has implemented the theory that advanced states must operate in cyberspace at scale using military entities. The command’s growth and progress followed debates over that vision and its refinement through offensive and defensive operations. USCYBERCOM actively influenced these debates and by 2020 had become an integral element in national defense, helping shape events and force design in both friendly and adversary nations.
