Overview Edit

Information Operations Condition (INFOCON) classifications mirror Defense Conditions (DEFCON) Alert System and are a uniform system of five progressive readiness conditions: INFOCON 5 thru INFOCON 1 with INFOCON 5 being a level of normal readiness and INFOCON 1 a level of maximum readiness, implemented because of severe threat or attack. As the INFOCON levels increase, elements of network functionality or services deemed lower priority or at high risk of attack may be temporarily suspended. Thus, CNA tools that work during a normal state of readiness may be rendered ineffective if the services or applications they exploit are turned off.
