In Shift, U.S. Talks to Russia on Internet Security – Series – NYTimes.com

Many countries, including the United States, are developing weapons for use on computer networks that are ever more integral to the operations of everything from banks to electrical power systems to government offices. They include “logic bombs” that can be hidden in computers to halt them at crucial times or damage circuitry; “botnets” that can disable or spy on Web sites and networks; or microwave radiation devices that can burn out computer circuits miles away.

Internet Security is a must for those big countries whose nuclear pile stocks may be controlled by some malicious hacker who is beneath the mazes of technological breakthroughs and opportunities.

A State Department official, who was not authorized to speak about the talks and requested anonymity, disputed the Russian characterization of the American position. While the Russians have continued to focus on treaties that may restrict weapons development, the United States is hoping to use the talks to increase international cooperation in opposing Internet crime.

An administration official said the United States was seeking common ground with the Russians.
