Feb 27, 2012 Bruno Tertrais: Nuclear Coup? France, the Algerian War and the April 1961 Nuclear Test
Bruno Tertrais examines the history surrounding France's April 1961 Nuclear Test and aims to draw lessons for possible future contingencies where a nuclear-capable country is threatened from inside and the control of nuclear materials or weapons may be at risk.
Dec 06, 2011 Greg Jones: Earliest Date Possible for Iran's First Bomb, February 2012
Senior Researcher Greg Jones argues that the IAEA's safeguards update shows that Western efforts to impede Iran’s centrifuge enrichment program continue to be ineffective.  Iran has maintained a steady production of 3.5% and 19.7% enriched uranium. The IAEA has also outlined the substantial progress Iran has made in the development of the non-nuclear components needed to produce nuclear weapons. If Iran were to now make an all-out effort to acquire nuclear weapons, it could probably do so in two to six months.

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.
