Journalist Shane Harris has written a richly detailed, page-turning recent history of the militarization of cyberspace. The combination of thoroughness and accessibility makes “@War: The Rise of the Military-Internet Complex” an important contribution to the ever- changing, seemingly unfathomable field of cybersecurity. Harris offers an inside account of how, over the course of more than a decade, U.S. military, intelligence and civilian agencies have ramped up their cyber capabilities to try to stay ahead of threats posed by criminal hackers and nation states. But the book does more than chronicle that transformation. It also picks up on the personalities and bureaucratic turf battles behind it and reflects on the broader implications for the security and openness of the Internet. The book’s subtitle is a variant of President Dwight Eisenhower’s warning against the potentially outsize influence of industry on U.S. defense policy. The military- Internet complex treats the Web as a battlefield, writes Harris, a senior correspondent at The Daily Beast. That battlefield is full of government and corporate secrets, and it has spawned a lucrative market for protecting them. FCW readers will appreciate the book’s detailing of the interagency tensions that come with grappling with a new domain. The 2009 birth of U.S. Cyber Command under the leadership of the National Security Agency director gave NSA even more clout among agencies in cyberspace. But Jane Holl Lute, who became deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security that year, challenged the notion that NSA was uniquely suited to defend civilian cyberspace, Harris writes. “Pretend the Manhattan phone book is the universe of malware,” she is quoted as telling colleagues. “NSA only has about one page of the book.” That turf battle is likely far from settled, and DHS has continued to expand its own cyber-defense capabilities.
