Air Force Aims to 'Rewrite Laws of Cyberspace'.

By Noah Shachtman

The Air Force is fed up with a seemingly endless barrage of attacks on
its computer networks from stealthy adversaries whose motives and even
locations are unclear. So now the service is looking to restore its
advantage on the virtual battlefield by doing nothing less than the
rewriting the "laws of cyberspace."

It's more than a little ironic that the U.S. military, which had so much
to do with the creation and early development of internet, finds itself
at its mercy. But as the American armed forces become increasingly
reliant on its communications networks, even small, obscure holes in the
defense grid are seen as having catastrophic potential.
