There are numerous computer-aided tools to enable Computer Network Defense. However, their effectiveness in countering attacks is less than optimal when they are used independently of one another. Research has identified the requirements for an integrated command and control (C2) system that is able to conduct full-spectrum operations in the cyberspace environment. The most notable of that research revolves around the development and experimentation with the prototype system known as Cyber Command, Control and Information Operations System (C3IOS). C3IOS provides for a loose confederation of the cooperating systems with interaction between systems going through C2 interfaces. In this thesis, the authors introduce into C3IOS a means to support the commander's ability to take measured responses to coercive actions in a timely manner, specifically to facilitate the interaction between experts in the law of information conflict and information warriors responding to a cyber attack. The authors' research results in a set of use cases and requirements for the C2 understanding, planning, and deciding activities involved in such a capability, using Schmitt's analysis as an example.
