Abstract
  • In the US today, discussions of foreign policy by politicians and policymakers across the country have been dominated by a single subject: a rising China. As two wars wind down, the US has turned its attention East-- dominated in particular by President Obama’s “Pivot to Asia.” Candidates for office have embraced “tough on China” as a qualifier as necessary for ensuring success at the polls where “tough on crime” was not long before. One particular area of US-China friction gaining prominence is that of cybersecurity: the protection of US intelligence and digital infrastructure, as well as private intellectual property, from electronic attacks and intrusions (DHS “Cybersecurity Overview”).
