Nov 21, 2011 Dr. Steve Lukasik Outlines the Feasibility of Using Worms for Cyber Counter-Proliferation
In the wake of Stuxnet, Dr. Lukasik examines the feasibility of the use of cyber worms to intervene in the control of a state’s nuclear weapons production facilities. He states that Stuxnet was an effective demonstration of the use of malware technology to access foreign computers that control the enrichment process. However, since Stuxnet spread too far too fast instead of staying hidden and doing its work over a period of years, its impact was limited to the destruction of some thousand Iranian centrifuges.
