NATO goes into cyber attack on Steadfast Jazz - 2013

NATO goes into cyber attack on Steadfast Jazz - 2013In the Baltics, the largest Steadfast Jazz - 10 strategic exercises are held in the last 2013 years, in which approximately 6 thousands of troops from more than 20 states, mostly members of the North Atlantic Alliance, as well as partner countries - Finland, Sweden and Ukraine, participate. The stated goal of the exercises is to organize the interaction of joint forces of rapid reaction in the conditions of a regional conflict. According to the organizers of the exercises, a non-NATO country makes territorial claims to Estonia and seizes part of its territory. In the media, information is often omitted that the exercise scenario, despite the ambiguity of interpretation, provides for a conditional adversary to deliver a massive blow to the network infrastructure for controlling troops from cyberspace. Accordingly, within the framework of NATO exercises, NATO is working on the reflection of this cyber attack.


The NATO Joint Cyber ​​Defense Center of Excellence, established in Estonia in 2008, is engaged in such tasks. By the way, it is precisely the specialists from this Center who take the initiative to equate a cyber attack with an armed attack with all the ensuing consequences. According to Article 5 of the NATO Charter, in case of aggression against one of the members, the alliance is obliged to take retaliatory steps. That is, in the event of an external attack on the network infrastructure of a NATO member state, the alliance neutralizes the threat, and then conducts cyber-encroachment on the enemy: disables troop control systems, blocks the work of state institutions, cuts off electricity, etc. In general, everything is like in a real war with tanks and airplanes, only using computers and the Internet.

Returning to the teachings of Steadfast Jazz - 2013. While on the Polish test sites, helicopters and artillery of NATO reflect the aggression of a potential enemy, the Tallinn Cyber ​​Defense Center conducts a cyber operation, during which several Ukrainian and Latvian sites were hacked to indicate their security gaps.

Probably, the activities should have been carried out in an artificially created information system, but because of an error, instead of duplicates, the real websites of large state organizations were hacked (http://news.pn/ru/incidents/90812). It is indicative that the operation was carried out against a non-NATO state, that is, it was actually offensive in nature.

However, some media outlets write that this incident is related to the recent activity of Ukrainian Anonymous. Hackers who oppose any alliances with the EU, NATO and Russia hacked several Russian and Polish resources, then attacked the website of the European Investment Bank and the website of the Estonian Ministry of Defense. Apparently, the topic of the possible signing of the Association Agreement with the EU is very acute in Ukraine even at the level of the hacker community.

    Most likely this was done deliberately, and I won’t be surprised if there were attempts to attack Russian sites.

      Sorry to have climbed the Baltic-nest anti-Russian cyber espionage.
      Estonia expects to become a leading country in this direction.
      So that is VERY serious.

    however, due to an error, instead of duplicates, real websites of large state organizations turned out to be hacked
    Brain deficiency is incurable. Interestingly, the hottest Estonian hackers themselves understood this, or they were informed about it during the analysis of the exercises.

    The Tallinn Cyber ​​Defense Center is conducting a cyber operation, during which it was simulated hacking several Ukrainian and Latvian sites in order to indicate their owners security gaps.

    Hope they do it fast? Or is the technique similar to the owners?

    My question is, after a power outage, will cyberspace remain relevant or will it go dark? But in general, the war with the Baltic states will end just after the outage.

    Haha, and Ho.h.land was invited to practice on it? laughing
    Probably, the activities should have been carried out in an artificially created information system, however due to an error, instead of duplicates, real sites were hacked large government organizations (http://news.pn/ru/incidents/90812). It is significant that the operation was carried out against a state that is not a member of NATO, that is, it was actually of an offensive nature.

    Oha, how! Because of the "error" ... And this is still without association. And what will happen after signing? We associate Ukraine with the EU, and they associate it with a punching bag? request
    According to the 5th article of the NATO Charter, in case of aggression against one of the members, the alliance is obliged to take retaliatory steps.

    It turned out exactly the opposite - the alliance's aggression against a neutral country. How do we answer, the gentleman of the "Cossack family"? tongue

    Don’t be offended by Kars .. I’m rude .. I didn’t want to offend anyone .. We hurt (especially WWII veterans and our fathers ..)
    As planned by the organizers of the exercises, a non-NATO country lays claim to Estonia’s territorial claims and seizes part of its territory
    This is Russia! We are brothers Slavs .. repeatThe Swedes were beaten The Finns were beaten The Poles were beaten ..etc. And mind you together ...

    Yanukovych already seems to have received the loot for a long time. So their bacon will soon all go rotten. They will not let us sell, and there it is on x ... nobody needs it. Industry in Ukraine will quickly collapse, and there will be saloids like Papuans, only without bananas.
