    Cybersecurity

    (Florianópolis, 2004)

The World Telecommunication Standardization Assembly (Florianópolis, 2004),

    considering

    a) the crucial importance of the information and communication infrastructure to practically all

    forms of social and economic activity;

    b) that the legacy public switched telephone network (PSTN) has a level of inherent security

    properties because of its hierarchical structure and built-in management systems;

    c) that IP networks provide reduced separation between user components and network

    components if adequate care is not taken in the security design and management;

    d) that the converged legacy networks and IP networks are therefore potentially more

    vulnerable to intrusion if adequate care is not taken in the security design and management;

    e) that the type and number of cyberincidents, including attacks from worms, viruses, malicious

    intrusions and thrill-seeker intrusions are on the increase,

    exploitation by malicious parties to interfere destructively with their deployment in the global information

    and communication infrastructure;

    2 that ITU-T continue to raise awareness, within its area of operation and influence, of the need to

    defend information and communication systems against the threat of cyberattack, and continue to promote

    cooperation among appropriate entities in order to enhance exchange of technical information in the field of
