My paper on “Public Attribution of Cyber Intrusions” was published in the Journal of Cybersecurity (@OUPAcademic). It's open access so everyone can have a read. I summarize the main insights in the thread below:
academic.oup.com/cybersecurity/…
Drawing on the intelligence studies literature, I argue that public attribution is employed to shape the “rules of the game” and thereby shape the normative and operational environment for cyber operations.
I split attribution into sense-making and meaning-making processes: sense-making process refers to the knowledge-generation process that establishes what happened, the meaning-making process to deliberate actions that influence how others interpret a particular cyber intrusion

“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here” - Dante’s Inferno👿
Online display ad experiments are hell. They are also a proving ground for field experimenters, & have much to teach us. The guide is organized into the nine 9 circles of 🔥hell🔥 as applied to #displayad #fieldexperiments Image
🔥Circle 1🔥 Display ad effects are so small🤏 that observational methods fail🤦‍♀️. Ad effects explain so little variation in ad outcomes, that they get swamped🌊 by unobserved confounds. Like Dante entering the inferno👿, we resign ourselves to the necessity of experiments.😭😭 Image

@MaxMustermann_1 @HonkHase Wir befinden uns immer noch in einer Situation, wo sich die einzelnen Institutionen im Wesentlichen durch #Koexistenz statt #Kooperation auszeichnen. 1/6
@MaxMustermann_1 @HonkHase Software, Hardware und Know-How wird individuell beschafft und sorgt für eine suboptimale Nutzung - leider auch nicht zum Schutz unserer Kritischen Infrastrukturen. 2/6
@MaxMustermann_1 @HonkHase Das #NCAZ, das im #Krisenfall die Reaktion der #Behörden koordinieren soll, hat unklare geregelte Zuständigkeiten, da die Entscheidung, wer zuständig ist, von korrekter #Attribution ausgeht. 3/6

I imagine the #sonytruthers playing armchair #DFIR investigators will emerge from wherever they’ve been hiding in order to dispute the #DPRK #indictment. My advice: you were wrong in 2014-2015, and you’d still be wrong today. HT ⁦@JohnHultquistint.nyt.com/data/documenth…
Because #attribution is inherently political per @RidT and @BuchananBen, you need more than “hacking” knowledge to assess national policy. Experience w/ #cybersecurity clearly helps, but gov internals, intel agency processes, bureaucracy, trade, diplomacy, LE, are all important.
I think it’s slowly changing, but a failure of #cybersecurity has been to think “soft” areas are much easier than coding, so any leet hacker is inherently qualified to address political science, history, economics, and related topics by virtue of their ability to code in ASM.
