Abstract

As the Russian government is revealed that it had intervened in the US presidential election by hacking, the social confusion caused by cyber attacks increased. This incident has led to the impeachment of the president by the dismissal of FBI director James Comey. In the French presidential election held in 2017, the social confusion created because of fake news during the period of election silence. The past cyber attacks were used as deception tactics, like the Georgian war. Nowadays, these attacks are concentrated in the period of social issues. In other words, these recent changes in cyber attacks have begun to have an adverse effect on systems in the real world, such as hybrid battlefields. This attack is called cyber influence attacks. This paper identifies the weaknesses of the basic democratic election system and classifies it against cyber influence attacks. In addition, we analyze the cyber influence attacks in Russia during the US presidential election in 2016 as a case study.
