半世紀以來徹底顛覆人類生活的發明莫過於網路的出現。作者Alexander Klimburg身為獨立智庫HCSS的程式設計總監,透過網路的普及化,提供了創新、資訊共享的自由連接,創造了完美的網路烏托邦。20年後,網路世界的發展趨向黑暗,網路就如同軍事武器般危險,濫用的網路力量縮短了全球連通,甚至威脅各國利益。Klimburg透過本書指出多數人過於低估網路世界爭奪權力的後果,以網路資訊為武器的衝突正在默默發生,危害的不僅是個資洩漏、選舉結果,甚至是民主社會的存亡。重點探討美、中、俄三國的網路衝突,看清大國如何利用網路操控及爭奪霸權。

No single invention of the last half century has changed the way we live now as much as the Internet. Alexander Klimburg was a member of the generation for whom it was a utopian ideal turned reality: a place where ideas, information, and knowledge could be shared and new freedoms found and enjoyed. Two decades later, the future isn’t so bright any more: increasingly, the Internet is used as a weapon and a means of domination by states eager to exploit or curtail global connectivity in order to further their national interests.
Klimburg is a leading voice in the conversation on the implications of this dangerous shift, and in The Darkening Web, he explains why we underestimate the consequences of states’ ambitions to project power in cyberspace at our peril: Not only have hacking and cyber operations fundamentally changed the nature of political conflict—ensnaring states in a struggle to maintain a precarious peace that could rapidly collapse into all-out war—but the rise of covert influencing and information warfare has enabled these same global powers to create and disseminate their own distorted versions of reality in which anything is possible. At stake are not only our personal data or the electrical grid, but the Internet as we know it today—and with it the very existence of open and democratic societies.
Blending anecdote with argument, Klimburg brings us face-to-face with the range of threats the struggle for cyberspace presents, from an apocalyptic scenario of debilitated civilian infrastructure to a 1984-like erosion of privacy and freedom of expression. Focusing on different approaches to cyber-conflict in the US, Russia and China, he reveals the extent to which the battle for control of the Internet is as complex and perilous as the one surrounding nuclear weapons during the Cold War—and quite possibly as dangerous for humanity as a whole.

Authoritative, thought-provoking, and compellingly argued, The Darkening Web makes clear that the debate about the different aspirations for cyberspace is nothing short of a war over our global values.
