This Cybersecurity wiki provides a set of evolving resources on [[Cybersecurity_Overview|cybersecurity, broadly defined]], and includes an '''[[Cybersecurity_Annotated_Bibliography|annotated list]]''' of relevant articles and literature, which can be searched in a number of ways. Please [[#Navigation|see below]]. It is intended as a tool/resource for researchers, technologists, students, policy-makers and others who are interested in cybersecurity issues more broadly. For more information about this first phase of the project, including the team, methodology, and opportunities to contribute, please see [[About|About the Project]].
==Cybersecurity Overview==
 
 
 
The term “Cybersecurity” encompasses a range of issues from [[Cybercrime]] to [[Cyberwar]]. These in turn embrace a diverse set of activities and interests.
 
 
 
Cybercrime, for example, can refer to a lone [[Keyword_Index_and_Glossary_of_Core_Ideas#Hacker | Hacker]] breaking into a single computer to an [[Keyword_Index_and_Glossary_of_Core_Ideas#Organized_Crime | organized network of computer criminals]] collecting thousands or millions of [[Keyword_Index_and_Glossary_of_Core_Ideas#Credit_Card_Fraud | credit card numbers]] and/or [[Keyword_Index_and_Glossary_of_Core_Ideas#Identity_Fraud.2FTheft | personal information records]] from multiple sources. Responses to cybercrime range from offering [[Incentives | incentives]] to individuals, manufacturers and/or corporations to protect against [[Keyword_Index_and_Glossary_of_Core_Ideas#Malware | malware]] and [[Keyword_Index_and_Glossary_of_Core_Ideas#Botnet | botnet attacks]] to decisions about [[Insurance | insurance]] and [[Risk_Management_and_Investment | risk management]].
 
 
 
[[Cyberwar| Cyberwarfare]] includes covert [[Espionage | espionage]] attacks against secure systems to collect sensitive [[Keyword_Index_and_Glossary_of_Core_Ideas#National_Security | national security]] information, distributed attacks against the [[Public_Critical_Infrastructure | civilian infrastructure]] to cause widespread failures of energy and/or communication systems or targeted attacks against [[Government_Networks_(.gov) | military targets]] with the intent to render offensive and defensive systems inoperable or to take control of systems with the ability to deliver [[Keyword_Index_and_Glossary_of_Core_Ideas#Botnet | kinetic attacks]]. These attacks all create complicated questions of [[Attribution | attribution]] and [[Regulation/Liability | law]], as the normal [[Keyword_Index_and_Glossary_of_Core_Ideas#Laws_of_War | laws of war]] are of questionable value when applied to threats delivered domestically from a anonymous source in a distant location. In addition, [[Deterrence| deterrence]], offensive actions and defensive response often become blurred in the cyber realm, requiring a fresh look at what policies such as “no first strike” mean in cyberspace.
 
 
 
Solutions to these problems will involve addressing questions of [[Economics_of_Cybersecurity | economics]], incentives, law, legislation, politics, [[Public-Private_Cooperation | government-private cooperation]] and [[International_Cooperation |international diplomacy]]. Government, industry, the military and the public must all play a role in deciding [[Keyword_Index_and_Glossary_of_Core_Ideas#Cyber_Security_as_a_Public_Good | how much cybersecurity is needed]] and who will pay for it. These stakeholders must also address the tradeoffs between privacy and security that often arise in addressing cyber threats. Finally, there needs to be a way to [[Keyword_Index_and_Glossary_of_Core_Ideas#Research_.26_Development | measure the threat]] and the protections put in place so that the players can make intelligent choices in allocating scare resources.
 
 
 
==Key Resources==
 
 
 
'''Reader's Guide: "How to Use this Wiki"'''
 
 
 
Our '''[[Annotated Bibliography | Annotated Bibliography]]''' presents and summarizes all of the resources we've collected by key issues and themes in Cybersecurity.
 
 
 
Because this bibliography encompasses such a wide range of cybersecurity issues, the most direct way to get started is to look through the
 
'''[[Annotated Bibliography | Annotated Bibliography]]''' and select '''Specific Issues or Themes''' of interest.  For example, [[Cybercrime | "Issues->Cybercrime"]] or [[Financial Institutions and Networks |Security Targets->Private Critical Infrastructure->Financial Institutions and Networks]].
 
 
 
If you are interested in a broad topic area, however, you might choose to start your search from one of the '''Broad Topics'''. This allows you to search within the broad categories of '''[[Overview]]''', '''[[Threats_and_Actors | Threats and Actors]]''', '''[[Issues | Issues]]''', and '''[[Approaches | Approaches]]'''.
 
 
 
Alternately, you can access the readings that we've summarized by
 
'''Resource Type''', which includes '''[[Government Reports]]''', '''[[Industry Reports]]''' and '''[[Books]]'''. 
 
 
 
For a more targeted review by '''Key Word''', please review our '''[[Keyword Index and Glossary of Core Ideas]]''', which will enable you to search definitions and references related to specific terms, from [[Keyword_Index_and_Glossary_of_Core_Ideas#Air-Gapped_Network| Air-Gapped Network]] to [[Keyword_Index_and_Glossary_of_Core_Ideas#Zero-Day_Exploit | Zero-Day Exploit]].
 
 
 
A comprehensive '''List of All Articles''' in the bibliography is available in the '''[[Comprehensive Index]]'''.
 
 
 
References may also be accessed in a standard bibliographic format ([http://www.bibtex.org/ BibTeX]) here: '''[http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/cybersecurity/Special:Bibliography Bibliography]'''.
 
 
 
==Ongoing Work==
 
 
 
'''A Note on Methodology''': The materials featured in this wiki are just a starting point for our inquiry. They were selected as foundational documents on the recommendation of select researchers. During the next phase of the project, experts, policy-makers, academics, and others will be asked to review and evaluate the current collection and make recommendations for additional resources to include.  We have also included a list of suggested materials for review and possible inclusion in the next phase of the project.
 
 
 
Additional articles for consideration are listed here: [[Suggested References to Add to Wiki]]
