There has been a diffusion of power away from governments over the years. ++ Cyberspace is a good case in point. ++ The recent sabotage of Iranian centrifuges is just one example of cyber warfare. ++ Large countries, such as the US, which built the Internet, are vulnerable to being exploited by small states and non-state actors, since the barriers to entry in the cyber domain are low and cheap. ++ Soon terrorists will achieve cyber-sophistication. ++ The time has come for states to discuss the measures needed to curb this new threat.
