Who did it? Attribution is fundamental. Human lives and the security of the state may depend on ascribing agency to an agent. Since 2013 a number of governments (and companies) have made significant advances in attributing computer network intrusions, on a technical, operational, and strategic level — not only privately but also publicly, thus setting precedents that have concrete legal consequences, for example in the insurance industry. A set of de-facto norms, practices, and policies are emerging. Thomas Rid will reflect on recent trends and lessons of cyber attack attribution.
