Senators: Pentagon failed to disclose secret cyber activities
Thursday - 1/13/2011, 3:32pm EST
The Associated Press report that the Senate underscores unresolved questions about how and when the Pentagon conducts cyber warfare, and about the guidelines for military action in the event of a computer based attack on the U.S.
The military's offensive cyber warfare is rarely disclosed. But Pentagon officials have been clear that cyber espionage and attacks from well-funded nations or terror groups are the biggest threats to military networks, including critical battlefield communications.
The Pentagon says disclosing the clandestine activities are not specifically listed in the law -- which shows just how murky the cyber legislation remains.
