On Tuesday night at RSA, Veracode held a book launch of Fred Kaplan’s Dark Territory: The Secret History of Cyber War. Kaplan was on site to sign copies of his book and to discuss the history of cyber war. That’s right, history, not future, of cyber war. Dark Territory looks back at the history of cyber war. Opening with a story from the Reagan administration, the book then examines how the concept of cyber war grew and highlights why it has taken so long for our government to catch up to this threat.
I had a chance to speak with Kaplan during the conference about his book and the overall implications of cyber war. The following clips are from our conversation.
