    • cyberwarfare won’t be like traditional warfare. It’s relatively easy for non-state actors to engage in asymmetric, disruptive activity, and states that engage in a cyberattack will find it easy to use misdirection to hide their tracks and/or shift the blame to other nations or non-state groups. As such, the US’ traditional means of deterrence, a "threat in-kind response," simply won’t work. Even identifying a threat can be a challenge, as the authors note, asking, "given that any large nation experiences cyberattacks continuously, how will the United States know it is the subject of a cyberattack deliberately launched by an adversary government?"
