About this blog…

I am employed by Netnod as head of engineering, research and development and am among other things chair of the Security and Stability Advisory Committee at ICANN. You can find CV and photos of me at this page.

Attack against Estonia

Many many people have asked me about what happened in Estonia. I have all the time referred to the Estonian CERT (for those who have access to it), and to news articles that I think correctly written about it.

Here is another one, in Wired. I was interviewed and so where many other people. My visit to the Cert with my friends Kurtis and Bill on May 9 is described as well.

The style is kind of easy to read, movie manuscript, which is a kind of interesting way of writing a description of what really happened. To some degree I think it was fun to read.

The content is very correct…so people interested should read.

The minister of defense checked the Web page again — still nothing. He stared at the error message: For some reason, the site for Estonia’s leading newspaper, the Postimees, wasn’t responding. Jaak Aaviksoo attempted to pull up the sites of a couple of other papers. They were all down. The former director of the University of Tartu Institute of Experimental Physics and Technology d been the Estonian defense minister for only four weeks. He hadn’t even changed the art on the walls.

Updated:There is also an article at IDG, in Swedish, about the cooperation between Sweden and Estonia as a result of the events. That article is not at all as detailed as the one in Wired though. The only thing that is really interesting (and I think correct) in the Swedish article is that we can not in Sweden use the same defense as they used in Estonia. Not specifically because Estonia is a young country though as the article claims. They have much better IT Infrastructure than Sweden in many cases.
