Admiral Michael ·S· Rogers , Commander of U.S. Cyber Command , Published his vision statement for the U.S. cyberspace forces , Coincidentally, he advocated the idea that his command organization should play a more important role in the US defense system .

He also served as the national security agency (NSA) General Rogers, the director and director of central security , In his long 14 Statement of page 《 Beyond construction : Delivering results through cyberspace 》 Used in “ vision ” It's a word to express his thoughts .

this “ vision ” It doesn't deviate from what was released earlier this year 《 The U.S. Department of Defense's Cyber Warfare Strategy 》, But general Rogers is more candid in pointing out that U.S. Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) Difficulties in preparing for cyberspace operations .

General Rogers warned : Although cyber command ultimately belongs to the U.S. Department of defense , And American intelligence agencies ,“ Had an early advantage in network capabilities ”, But most of today's technologists are “ Outside the government , And often even Not in the United States ”.

Although the United States is trying to maintain its dominant position against potential rivals in cyberspace , The Cyber Command commander stressed that , The United States must recognize , In the field of network , There have been competitors of equal strength .

  • Country 、 Organizations and individuals are using and developing advanced technologies , Through cyber repression 、 Cyber attacks and cyber exploits against the United States and its allies .

  • What they are trying to achieve is beyond the scope of the government , And it extends to the private sector .

  • U.S. Cyber Command , Will work with the federal government 、 Foreign and industrial partners work together , Help reduce and curb cyber espionage , To destroy 、 Destroy and fight against cyber espionage ; Stop the hostile behavior of the opponent , And enhance the resilience of DoD systems to withstand attacks .

  • Under the right conditions , After the order from the U.S. Supreme Command , We have to be able to conduct offensive cyber operations .

  • U.S. cyber command will provide decision makers and operational commanders , And capabilities and functions that can be integrated with other parts of American national power , Shaping us in peace 、 Operating environment in crisis and war situations .

Admiral Rogers declared that , Digital connection completely subverts the classic art of war . The Admiral stressed , The network mission set must be operational to optimize its force skill set , And this skill set has recently been humiliated by reserve hackers .

To achieve this goal , General Rogers proposed to divide cyberspace more specifically into the fifth area of military conflict , And add to the traditional land 、 The sea 、 empty 、 It's in the sky :

  • We have to build the capabilities of the cyber forces and build partnerships that are critical to the successful completion of their tasks .

  • We have to be as capable as any carrier battle group 、 Air formation 、 Marine air marine task force 、 As well trained as a brigade or regiment , And it can fight .

  • Our network forces should be able to put in and carry out the assigned tasks at any time .

  • To achieve these points , They are also like the mobile elements in other combat areas , Need platform 、 Tools 、 Training and infrastructure ,.

Although it's not enough for the client to maintain SSL authentication , The U.S. cyber command also has a real responsibility to defend .mil The responsibility of the domain , This part seems to have been ignored when writing the statement .

Friends of network security

With the proliferation of memoranda of understanding between cyber crime authorities and private industry , General Rogers pointed out another additional requirement for Cyber Command , That is, to establish a partnership with the industry itself and to develop its combat capability .

However , Unlike the cooperation between cyber crime authorities and anti malware and solution vendors with many common goals and areas of cooperation , Cyber command is committed to developing offensive capabilities , This means that it may cooperate with private enterprises in another form .

General Rogers expressed his intention :“ We're going to move quickly forward with our partners , And build a practical military combat capability …… We will temper our team , And strive to be flexible in the implementation of national tasks 、 Reliable and innovative .”


General Rogers said in his concluding remarks :“ Cyberspace is an ever-changing dynamic domain , The access of every networking device will change it .”

And the only certainty in this field is its uncertainty , This makes flexibility essential . Cyberspace is an artificial field , So the big principles of strategy and conflict still apply . Combat capability is still crucial , It's just that they have to work together faster and better .

Last , The Admiral added :“ At a time when most of the Department of defense is facing budget cuts , The national security strategy and its implementation at the national defense level need to increase investment in cyberspace combat capability , Because the network mission will give more rewards .”

“ The Department of defense and the whole country are counting on us . We have to be ready .”
