Student Name: Huey Vu Net Id: hdv130030 Case_Study_2 Due Date: 3/12/2018 1 Welcome to the world of Hardware Trojans - an insidious capability designed to steal secrets from personal and professional devices and spy on civilians in every possible way. As always research and collaborate to learn. But always, always submit your OWN answers with references (additional if necessary), collaborator names and respond IN YOUR OWN WORDS. Follow the guidelines on plagiarism and copying from your Exam 1 instructions. Additional references will help you answer these questions correctly. 1. An interesting introduction to the topic is "The Hunt for the Kill Switch" by S. Adee, (May 2008). This is cyber warfare in real life. Please research this article further and provide a technical minimum 1/2 page on how the Syrian radar system was possibly disabled. A lot of questions about Syrian air defense communications got hacked into, but not many answers to this questions. More rumors are beginning to explain about the secret Israeli air raid toward Syria in September. According to the latest revelations are made by well-connected Aviation Week journalists. It now suggested that "computer to computer" techniques and "air-to-ground network penetration" took place. Electronic-warfare correspondent David Fulghum states that US intelligence and military personnel "provided advice" to the Israelis about techniques of jamming into the Syrian air-defense system. Aviation Week's experts stated that the initial raid was a linked to bombardment and electronic assault on a Syrian radar position near the Turkish boundary, which allowed Israeli warplanes to sail into undetected. It appears Israel used some of the old- school brute force jamming’s. According to Fulghum's unnamed Pentagon associates. Also stated that following the Israelis passed inside Syrian airspace, US sensors in the region saw that the whole Syrian radar detector system "went off the air" for some period while the main assault on the Day as-Zawr facility considered to have been a nuclear plant of some sort launched forward. Likely, this indicates that Syrian long-range search radars over the country halted to transfer. There is no suggestion that the radars detectors were damage, which is plausible. Also, they don't believe that the Syrian power grid was shut down. Because, this would probably have become known, so their assessment is believable. It seems that either centralized Syrian air-defense communications did get hacked in. It also appears that the Syrians rely on HF and VHF radio for at least some of their anti-air communications/data links, so this could accomplish relatively easy from aircraft (or in the case of HF, indeed possibly from across the border).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
