Week 2 Lesson
Chapter 2 – Attacker Techniques and Motivations
The discussion about attacks in the cybersecurity context is difficult to comprehend as one would often
associate the word attack with conflicts or person to person clashes. When associating “attack” with
cybersecurity one must clarify that the intent is to describe a process that is initiated by a human user
of technology to influence the use of resources by others with ill intent. Techniques employed by these
human actors and their motivations is of interest to all and helps to address the how and why
questions. How are the attackers equipped to conduct the attack and why do they take the action. The
discussion that follows along with your learning during this week will seek to address these questions.
There are a large number of different attribution techniques. Each technique
has its strengths and weaknesses; no single technique replaces all others.
Attribution is difficult and inherently limited. In particular, attackers can
cause attacks to be delayed and perform their attacks through many
intermediaries in many jurisdictions, making attribution difficult. In some
cases this can be partly countered, for example, by treating some information gathering techniques as
attacks (and attributing them), using multiple techniques, and using techniques that resist this
problem (such as
exploiting/forcing attacker self-identification and attacker surveillance).
Nevertheless, because of the difficulty and uncertainty in performing
attribution, computer network defense should not depend on attribution.
Instead, attribution should be part of a larger defense-in-depth strategy. Attribution tends to be easier
against insiders or insider intermediaries.
There is no universally agreed upon definition of the term attribution in the field of information
assurance (IA). One dictionary defines the general term attribution as to explain by indicating a
cause. [Merriam-Webster 1983].
This paper defines attribution as determining the identity or location of an attacker or an attackers
intermediary. A resulting identity may be a persons name, an account, an alias, or similar
information associated with a person. A location may include physical (geographic) location, or a
virtual location such as an IP address or Ethernet address.
