US Air Force Seeks to Change Cyber Laws

The US Air Force is trying to change Cyberlaw across Cyberspace - not just protect their own networks.

Fed-up with constant attacks on their networks, the military branch seeks specifically to:
  • Make hostile traffic inoperable on Air Force networks.
  • Locate and identify hackers.
  • Enable Air Force servers to evade/dodge electronic attacks.
They seek to accomplish these goals under the new Integrated Cyber Defense banner. The project's request for proposals states, "The 'laws' of cyberspace can be rewritten, and therefore the domain can be modified at any level to favor defensive forces..."
