The relative advantage between attackers and defenders in cyberspace has been the subject of vigorous debate. I argue that the debate should be resolved in favor of cyber attackers, who possess freedom of maneuver to invalidate security assumptions required by modern digital systems. Using the recent “LogoFail” exploit and the 2020 SolarWinds hack, the attacker’s ability to invalidate security assumptions is explored. The limitations of current U.S. cyber strategy are then examined through the lens of attacker advantage in cyberspace. While restraint in the conduct of offensive cyberspace operations is noble, attacker advantage in cyberspace presents challenges in preparing for future conflict.
