This is a very interesting read by John J. Tkacik on Chinese cyber attacks that runs counter to many of my arguments. The PDF document titled Trojan Dragon: China’s Cyber Threat is 12 pages but well worth checking out.
Genesis of China’s Cyberwarfare
In the 1990s, China’s Ministry of Public Security (MPS), which manages the country’s police services, pioneered the art of state control of cyberspace by partnering with foreign network systems firms to monitor information flows via the Internet. By 1998, according to an insider’s account of China’s Internet development, the MPS and its subordinate bureaus found that their resources for monitoring the Internet had been overwhelmed by the sheer volume of Internet traffic—which by 1998 had not yet reached 1 million users in China.
