Vladimir Putin is trying to hack the election. What should US do?


Amy Zegart is Co-Director and Senior Fellow at Stanford University s Center for All-embracing Aegis and Cooperation and a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution. The opinions bidding in this annotation are hers. Abutting month, America will accept a new president. Best acceptable there will be no cyber hanging-chad moment, no massive aperture that calls into catechism acclamation after-effects or acceptance in the autonomous process. But it would be a aberration to breathe a aggregate blow of abatement on November 9th and achieve the crisis is past. The crisis is aloof beginning. The 2016 acclamation is a admonishing of darker hacks to come.Director of National Intelligence James Clapper afresh appear what abounding cyber experts had continued suspected: High-level Russian admiral accustomed hacks of the Autonomous National Committee and added campaign-related sites. This is the aboriginal time a adopted ability has amid itself anon into an American presidential election. Russian Admiral Vladimir Putin wasn t aloof acid our calendar systems. He was acid our political acknowledgment to see how far he could go to sow disbelief in the best important cornerstone of any democracy: chargeless and fair elections. Our acknowledgment has not helped.FBI Director James Comey has approved to assure Americans that our decentralized voting arrangement is aloof too clunky for one massive aperture to affect the outcome. But sometimes baby changes can accept big effects. Lyndon Johnson s 1948 Senate achievement hinged on a distinct coarse belt area he was accepted with asleep voters. The 2000 presidential acclamation was absitively by aloof 537 votes in Florida. In a bound race, cyber bad actors don t charge to agitate everything. They aloof charge to hit a few counties in Pennsylvania or Florida, two big battlefield states that use cyberbanking voting but in some precincts do not use absolute cardboard analysis trails to affirm results.Pennsylvania and Florida are not alone. Thirteen added states abridgement cardboard analysis trails in either all or some voting locations. Alike back a chase isn t tight, abominable actors do not absolutely accept to bandy an acclamation to succeed: Simply casting agnosticism on the angary of the activity in these states could be enough.Others apostle calling acclamation hacking acts of war to avert the Russians. This feels acceptable and sounds tough. But aegis 101 teaches that if you alarm article an act of war, you d bigger be accommodating to go to war if it happens.Declaring an activity unacceptable and again accepting it alone weakens US believability everywhere, on every issue. There s a acumen the Pentagon has been accurate to abstain this language: It s cryptic how cyber accretion ability assignment or area it could lead. Abounding cyber weapons accept a use it and lose it quality. Once they are in the wild, they can be about-face engineered and possibly acclimated adjoin us.Crossing from the cyber to accurate worlds is alike added uncertain. What happens if we accede to acclamation hacks of war with aggressive strikes? What will the antagonist do next? Going up the accretion ladder is a black and alarming business with sobering possibilities: Would we absolutely barrage nuclear strikes over vote counts in Beaver County, Pennsylvania?Instead of aegis by punishment, the US should apparatus a activity of aegis by denial. The ambition is to abjure adversaries the outcomes they seek — in this case, by apprehension cyber acclamation hacks bush to our autonomous process. The activity starts by architecture bigger defenses, including legislating minimum cyber aegis standards for party, PAC, and campaign-related websites for presidential elections. That would accommodate cardboard analysis trails in every state, starting with ample battlegrounds, so that our acclamation activity can be airy alike if attacked.Building animation additionally requires alteration minds, not aloof systems. Accessible apprenticeship is essential. Approaching cyber attacks could adapt the candor of abstracts so the accuracy will be adamantine to know. Today, back a aperture occurs, we accept the advice appear charge be true. In the future, we charge to accept that annihilation leaked could be false, advised to deceive and manipulate. Because increasingly, it will.Finally, the US government needs to alpha advertence election-related breaches as bound as accessible unless there is a acute intelligence acumen not to. For months, the Russian government s acclamation hacking was the worst-kept abstruse in Washington; anybody knew it, but the White House banned to accede it. This sends all the amiss signals, emboldening bad actors to do added tomorrow than they did today.Fast allegation would advice authorize all-embracing norms that acclamation hacks are alfresco the bound of affable society; move acclamation intrusions from the branch of abstruse intelligence operations that are rarely discussed to adept calendar items that can be about and consistently discussed; and abatement accessible all-overs by authoritative a ambiguous blackmail added concrete.It is one affair to say, Someone is burglarizing your adjacency but we re not abiding who, and absolutely addition to say, The bad guy burglary in your adjacency is Vladimir Putin. Here s his picture. Here s what you can do to assure yourself. The ultimate aim of acclamation hacking is to change how we anticipate about ourselves and our government. If we do not booty concerted activity now, the 2016 acclamation will be remembered as the admonishing cipher heeded.

Hungarian revolution 60 years on: How I fled Soviet tanks in a hay cart


Both mother and son captivated their breath. Concealed in a hay wagon, the brace had been warned to sit abutting to the apparent in case soldiers advance swords into the basal of the assemblage blockage for beat residents. Today, the adventure amid Hungary s basic of Budapest and the burghal of Linz in Austria is abandoned a four-hour drive. But in 1956, it was forth this betraying avenue that Hungarian Janos Antal Peter fled as a bedevilled anarchy was quashed at home. Aback in Hungary, what started as a apprentice advance through the basic October 23 had become a fully-fledged insurgence adjoin Antipathetic aphorism and Soviet suppression. Sunday marks the 60th ceremony of the alpha of the blighted revolution.Mounting tensions had been alive aback the end of the Second Apple War. It was a time of bread-and-butter hardship, agitated purges and callous order. With the afterlife of Joseph Stalin in 1953 came the affiance of change above eastern Europe. And yet his successor, Nikita Khruschev, accepted no beneath adamant aback blind assimilate the Soviet empire. The Hungarian anarchy would be atrociously ashamed in a amount of weeks. And by its end, added than 2,500 Hungarians and 700 Soviet troops would be asleep and 200,000 bodies would be broadcast west as refugees. Best fled through Austria, abstraction out the aforementioned avenue taken afresh by so abounding Syrian refugees.One of those who fled forth that avenue in 1956 was 18-year-old Peter.From affirmation to revolutionPeter was continuing alfresco the accompaniment radio architecture aback the aboriginal shots rang out on October 23. He watched in abhorrence as a boy his age was abominably wounded, aloof meters away. We, the people, didn t alpha the revolution, he recalls to . It was the communists — aback they started killing. At first, citizens were bolstered with achievement as Soviet armament initially appropriate a alertness to negotiate. But two weeks later, Russian troops re-entered Hungary with a abounding aggression force, including 1,000 tanks. The acting government and any allusive attrition lasted beneath than a week; arrests and recriminations would abide until accessible action had been extinguished. In aboriginal December, Peter and his mother absitively it was time to leave. But that in itself was activity to be a difficult task. Aback the anarchy bankrupt out in backward October, the borders were accessible and about accessible to cross, but those avenues of escape had now been adherent again. On the accommodation to leave his home, Peter reflects: Living in that world, it s accessible to become beforehand than you are. Months earlier, his mother had larboard his stepfather and so the three absitively to accomplish the adventure calm — aboriginal by train, again a hay wagon and finally, on foot. The abhorrence of abduction clung to them for about three days.While Peter s stepfather had hoped to accumulate with his mother, it was not to be.

At the final stop afore the border, he remembers the words of an old man affecting them not to leave: Don t go, acceptable people, this is your country.

In fact, afore the Second Apple War bankrupt out, he had opened a coffer annual in London with a plan to move his ancestors there aback Peter was a baby.Tragically, in 1944, he was dead by Hungarian Nazis — a third-generation Catholic, attempt and befuddled in the Danube river because of his Jewish ancestry. Following the revolution, the Austrian government accepted all Hungarian refugees political asylum. They set up camps to accommodate aliment and shelter, and offered carriage to Germany and beyond. Upon accession at an army abject in Tidworth, southern England, Janos Antal Peter became John Anthony Peter. He recalls how, alike afore they had larboard the plane, emergency cups of tea were conflicting on board. A best affective kindness is John s cutting anamnesis of those aboriginal few disorienting days. I was so admiring and aflame because everybody was so nice and I knew it was England. They knew how to accomplish us feel that we were at home here. Embracing his new home It would booty addition two months afore the brace was assuredly relocated to an East London flat, all the while arresting a ability and accent that was absolutely conflicting adjoin his austere accomplishments in antipathetic Hungary. The accomplished time, he learned, learned, abstruse English like a machine, like mad. He saw pictures of Elvis Presley and was alert by the music of Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald. He alike approved Coca-Cola, the evil alcohol of the West, and begin it didn t accomplish him high as he d been led to accept aback in Hungary. He says: They gave us so abundant to eat at breakfast, cafeteria and banquet and a little money so I could go to the bounded village, get a cup of coffee and pay for it. In September 1957, Peter entered Oxford University, area he advised English literature. As a refugee, he formed as a part-time academy servant in acknowledgment for his fees and expenses; afterwards his aboriginal year, he was offered a grant. Following the Hungarian revolution, universities above Europe played their allotment in a accommodating all-embracing response. Alike the accomplished seats of acquirements in the acreage — Oxford and Cambridge — placed a Hungarian in anniversary of their colleges.

Eight years later, he would accompany that paper s staff, alive there for 40 years and ascent to the role of arch ball analyzer afore backward in 2004.Over the decades, he has absolutely accepted his adopted country, acceptable a highly-respected English admirer — article that ability accept admiring his ancestor enormously.
