DEFCON 15: Estonia: Information Warfare and Strategic Lessons
Spread the love

Speaker: Gadi Evron Beyond Security

In this talk we will discuss what is now referred to as “The ‘first’ Internet War” where Estonia was under massive online attacks for a period of three weeks, following tensions with the local Russian population.

Following a riot in the streets of Tallinn, an online assault begun, resulting in a large-scale coordination of the Estonian defenses on both the local and International levels. We will demonstrate what in hind-sight worked for both the attackers and the defenders, as well as what failed. Following the chronological events and technical information, we will explore what impact these attacks had on Estonia’s civil infrastructure and daily life, and how they impacted its economy during the attacks.

Once we cover that ground, we will evaluate what we have so far discussed and elaborate on lessons learned while Gadi was in Estonia and from the post-mortem he wrote for the Estonian CERT. We will conclude our session by recognizing case studies on the strategic level, which can be deducted from the incident and studied in preparation for future engagements in cyber-space.
