Chief among the challenges faced by those wishing to conduct warfare within the cyber domain are the misconceptions that lead to ill-informed policy, planning, and execution regarding cyber activity. Misconceptions surrounding cyber warfare stem from essentially two causes. One reason for many misconceptions is a lack of technical understanding for what is actually involved in carrying out warfighting actions within the cyber domain. The other reason that cyber warfare is generally misunderstood or misrepresented is that most individuals, even in the military and government, do not adequately understand the authorities, definitions, and legality which are involved in warfare in general and specifically how they apply to the cyber domain of warfighting.
