Recent exploits by hackers have drawn attention to the importance of defending against potential information warfare. Defense and civil institutions rely so heavily on their information systems and networks that attacks that disable them could be devastating. Yet, as hacker attacks have demonstrated, protective mechanisms are fallible. Features and services that must be in place to carry out needed, legitimate functions can be abused by being used in unexpected ways to provide an avenue of attack. Further, an attacker who penetrates one system can use its relationships with other systems on the network to compromise them as well. Experiences of actual attacks have led to the recognition of the need to detect and react to attacks that succeed in breaching a system's protective mechanisms.
