CERTAIN ASPECTS REGARDING THE DEVELOPMENT OF CONDITIONS FAVORABLE TO CYBERTERRORISM AND THE MAIN AREAS OF COOPERATION IN THE STRUGGLE AGAINST IT. IN: TERRORISM. REDUCING VULNERABILITIES AND IMPROVING RESPONSES. U.S.-RUSSIAN WORKSHOP PROCEEDINGS.

This chapter on cyberterrorism and international cooperation against it is from a book that gathers papers and proceedings from workshops held between 2001 and 2003 of meetings of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) and the National Academies of Science (NAS, United States), focusing on reducing vulnerabilities and improving responses to terrorism. In this chapter, the authors first define the two main types of illegal activities in the computer sphere: unauthorized penetration or intrusion into a computer system; and hidden transmission of data via legal channels. The authors outline specific computer system responses to early virus attacks and the Internet environment, intrusion detection, and new security solutions for virtual private networks (VPNs). The authors make three conclusions: the PC-Ethernet-Internet environment is poorly protected against intrusions; the Internet will develop and be used on an increasing scale in various areas of human activity; and the danger of computer terrorism can be reduced only by using new systems technology solutions for the design of operating systems, collective use systems, and telecommunications protocols.
