Robert Lee: Pentagon Issues New Cyber Ruling Document for Offensive Ops

cyberThe Pentagon has released a document that contains its cyber doctrine for military officials to plan cyber offensive missions, FCW reported Friday.

Sean Lyngaas writes the new cyber ruling requires the federal government’s approval in order to control offensive cyber operations.

Robert Lee, a digital forensic specialist and an active-duty U.S. Air Force cyber warfare operations officer, told FCW that the new document could help further offensive cyber operations.

The Joint Publication 3-12 (R) doctrine seeks to build on the National Military Strategy for Cyberspace Operations published in 2006, according to the report.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff issued the document to internal stakeholders in February 2013 and to the public on Oct. 21, Lyngaas reports.
