    Military Networks Not Defensible, Says General Who Defends Them

    http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2012...a-cant-defend/

    My general feeling about Western defence, and US in particular, is that it is overly dependent on C3I-systems and way too complex to function under real combat stress and the frictions of war. I think we all know that any serious attack on our countries would begin with a comprehensive hacking attack against rear area infrastructure.

    I always notice on other forums people praising the technological superiority of the USA as compared to Russia for example, will often come unstuck. They constantly cheer this insert 'microchipped super stealth weapon' here.... but fail to realise that generally the more complex it is the more there is to go wrong.

    While tech has it has it's uses against an enemy which has no reliable defence against it i.e current wars in Islamic countries, where there is not intense conflict and there are reliable supply and communication lines, it will fail against a savvy, well equipped and trained opponent if they have the ability to disrupt this. This I believe is akin to the failure of blitzkrieg warfare in WW2.

    To much reliance on modern gadgets breeds softer soldiers I believe.

    A lot of the problems they have also stem from using Windows on all of their workstations. I've noticed many of these attacks happen through trojans, which usually means a workstation has been compromised. This will keep happening as long as the military and its contractors continue to use Windows. Of course this will keep happening because Microsoft has bought off all our politicians and they keep making products with poor security. The solution is simple: use a Unix or Unix-like operating system. But they won't do it. Another example of corruption in action.
