Commander Arthur A. Galpin III, Computer Network Defense for the United States of America (Apr. 9, 2002) (full-text).


The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, have brought increased attention to the nation's vulnerabilities. One of these vulnerabilities is the nation's computer networks. While a level of vulnerability was acknowledged prior to 11 September, little was done to effectively implement Computer Network Defense (CND).

This paper examines the national policy for CND, organizations established for CND, the vulnerabilities and threats to the nation's computer networks and propose changes to improve national CND.
