Abstract – Information has become an important aspect in modern life. Banks, businesses, and media depend on a constant flow of information to operate on it and produce more knowledge. In a conflict, information is used to provide situational awareness as well as to allow ideas to provide their perspective on the conflict to the rest of the world. In a cyber-attack, attacker seeks to reduce the effect of information by taking computer systems offline, or at least somehow blocking access. The demonstrating to the global community that cyber warfare would add a new dimension to international relations. Information Warfare describes the concept of the Global Information Infrastructure (GII), a service and network providing communications and control services worldwide. The concept of information warfare began as a technology oriented tactic to gain information dominance by superior command and control. This soon developed into a realization of the power of information as both a ‘weapon’ as well as a ‘target’. The importance of information rather than its associated vehicle – information technology – created a situation where influence became a critical factor in conflict. As the nature of conflict changed to being an almost ongoing situation, control over mass communication became a high priority task for governments as well as the military. As such, the manipulation of information became an essential function
