China and Cyber: Attitudes, Strategies, Organisation | CCDCOE

A new NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence analysis gives a comprehensive overview of Chinese cyber structures and developments. “China and Cyber: Attitudes, Strategies, Organisation” looks at the nation’s unique approach to internet governance and cyber security. In the digital sphere, China stands out in its approach to internet governance, extensive industrial espionage, and increasing military focus on cyber operations, which are the themes highlighted in the analysis. “China’s cyber developments, including the espionage, must be placed into the general context of governance which drives society towards informatisation while maintaining firm political control,” highlights Mikk Raud, the author of the study.

Confirmed! Researchers Are Close To Creating A Hack-Proof Code

Fossbytes is a technology news and tutorial website that covers security and hacker news, open source, Windows 10, Ubuntu, and programming languages.
Vicente Pastor's insight:
Algorithms formal verification is not new. I had that as part of my Computer Science programme in the 90s. But it has a cost in time and resources that would make it not suitable for each implementation. It would slow the time-to-market and without appropriate regulations and with the lack public awareness about importance of code quality, it could mean a competitive disadvantage for the ones implementing it.
