Century The Convergence of the Commercial and the Military Sectors: Vulnerabilities, Capabilities and Solutions September 5-6, 1996 Washington, DC Sponsored by: Winn Schwartau, Interpact, Inc./Infowar.Com National Computer Security Association/NCSA.Com Robert Steele, OPEN SOURCE SOLUTIONS, Inc./OSS.Net Sponsoring Organizations: Command Software Systems Digital Equipment Corporation Norman Data Defense IBM Phillips Publications Jane's Information Group Historically, civil defense has meant to protect citizenry against hostile military actions. Today, with the specter of Information Warfare representing new challenges to late-industrial and information age nation-states, the rules have radically changed. Societies are rapidly migrating to increased dependance upon four critical interrelated infrastructures and adequate methods of protection must be developed: - The Power grid is the basis of most of modern society. With it gone, not much else happens. If you think this is just a matter of building more generators, think again--what happens if the factories that *make* the generators are taken down, too? - The Communications infrastructure: land, sea, air and satellite. 95% of military communications go over the public networks, and 100% of all financial and industrial communications. Is it worth protecting? - The Global Financial structure depends upon the first two infrastructures, and is perhaps the most vulnerable to theft and denial of service attack. 99+% of all "wealth" is digital--what happens if it vaporizes? - Transportation systems rely upon the other three. The air traffic systems require both power and communications to manage the thousands of airplanes in the sky. What happens to the thousands of airplanes in the air if air traffic control across an entire country goes down? Without all of these infrastructures properly and reliably functioning, the private sector and the national security community cannot function. No heat, no air conditioning, no food distribution, no light, no radio or TV, no Internet. Are we prepared? Do we have a a crisis response for the day money as we know it vanishes? Electronic Civil Defense will soon become a critical component of any nation's well being while the needs of both the private sector and government converge. The convergence of military and civilian interests that Mr. Schwartau predicted two years ago is happening before our eyes. Defensive and commercial postures have so intertwined as to make them indistinguishable. This Fifth International Conference on Information Warfare is an unclassified, open source forum, and will examine the myriad questions of Electronic Civil Defense from the US, International and multi-cultural perspectives. Our seasoned experts will work with InfoWarCon5 delegates to outline a framework for the vulnerabilities, threats, risks and solutions for Electronic Civil Defense. From this conference participants will be able to draw critical insights which will improve their own legislative, regulatory, financial, and operational readiness and security. Last year's Washington InfoWarCon brought together over 600 people and was covered by CNN among other major media organizations. This year key world players in information warfare from the economic, military, and law enforcement communities of over 30 countries are expected to participate. Be prepared for highly interactive sessions with plenty of audience participation. Please bring your opinions and be ready to discuss them with us all!

The final settlement apparently will limit the financial interest that John Malone's Tele-Communications Inc. (TCI) can take in Time Warner, severely reduce various concessions that would have been made to TCI, and would forbid Time Warner from discriminating against competitors in the cable industry. (Washington Post 18 Jul 96) "ORCHID CLUB" INDICTMENTS FOR PORNOGRAPHY ON INTERNET A federal grand jury in San Jose, California, has indicted 16 people from the U.S. and abroad for their participation in a child pornography ring called the "Orchid Club," whose members used the Internet to share sexual pictures and conduct online chat during a child molestation. A U.S. attorney says there are no free speech issues involved: "The thing that ups the ante in this case is that allegations of distribution of pornography are coupled with serious allegations of child molestation. It's an issue relating to the protection of children, not to the First Amendment." (New York Times 17 Jul 96 A8) INTEL, MICROSOFT CROSS-LICENSE AGREEMENT Intel Corp. and Microsoft Corp. have agreed to cross-license their Internet communications technology in an effort to pursue Internet-based telephone and videoconferencing business opportunities. The alliance, which will exploit Intel's Proshare videoconferencing technology and Microsoft's NetMeeting and ActiveX software, will also develop technology to allow users to find other people to talk with on the Internet via a User Location Service. (Investor's Business Daily 18 Jul 96 A9) ------------------------------ Date: Thu, 8 Aug 2020 20:53:07 -0400 (EDT) From: Noah Subject: File 4--Microsoft sues IRS; AOL goes AWOL (news from Noah) MICROSOFT SUES IRS FOR EXPORT TAX BENEFITS Microsoft has filed a lawsuit against the Internal Revenue Service, in an effort to recoup about $19 million paid as part of the company's 1990 and 1991 tax returns. The legal action ups the ante in the software industry's bid for favorable treatment under a 1984 law that allows businesses to set up foreign sales corporations, thereby exempting 15% of their export income from U.S. taxes. Similar industries, including exporters of films, tapes and records, have benefited from the 1984 provision. The software industry has said it would save about $200 million over five years if it were allowed the same protections. (Wall Street Journal 8 Aug 96 B4) AOL GOES AWOL America Online went off-line yesterday, stranding more than 6 million subscribers in the real world of snail mail and "sneakernet," as one consultant who depends on e-mail described it. The AOL computers were shut down at 4:00 a.m. for routine maintenance, and then were unable to resume function at the scheduled 7:00 a.m. power-up. While some people took the outage with a dose of philosophy, others predicted this event was the harbinger of more trouble in cyberspace. "Clearly the longer-term goal has to be for the Internet to become more like the phone system is today," in terms of reliability, says a director for AT&T's WorldNet service. "The likely scenario is increasingly calamitous breakdowns," predicts an industry columnist. Meanwhile, AOL CEO Steve Case expressed his regret over the inconvenience via conventional news release.
