The U.S. Wants To Be Upfront With China About Cyberwarfare – Nextgov.com

The Obama administration held briefings with Chinese military leadership about the United States’ growing cyberwarfare program, according to a new report fromThe New York Times. In a speech planned for Tuesday at the People’s Liberation Army’s National Defense University, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel plans to bring up the issue, and the fact the the Chinese have not been similarly forthright in detailing their cyber initiatives.

From the Times:

The effort, senior Pentagon officials say, is to head off what Mr. Hagel and his advisers fear is the growing possibility of a fast-escalating series of cyberattacks and counterattacks between the United States and China. … American officials say their latest initiatives were inspired by Cold-War-era exchanges held with the Soviets so that each side understood the “red lines” for employing nuclear weapons against each other.
