What’s an Internet engineer?
I’d not heard this term “Internet engineer” before this. I did find a definition of the term, but it doesn’t really match what’s being described below. The job definition I found talks about using websites for transactions. This is about understanding the Internet well enough that one can change the information flow on it. I have found that there are schools that offer a degree in “Internet engineering.” Is this a new kind of career for which we need to prepare students in Computing?
“Evidence related to this incident does not clearly indicate whether it was perpetrated intentionally and, if so, to what ends,” the report says. “Regardless of whether Chinese actors actually intended to manipulate U.S. and other foreign Internet traffic, China’s Internet engineers have the capability to do so.”
