US, Russia begin talks on cyberspace security

The United States, Russia and the UN arms control committee are holding talks about strengthening Internet security, reining in the growing threat of cyber warfare and limiting the military use of cyberspace. The effort is a virtual version of the ongoing negotiations of nuclear arms talks between the two nations.

The United States has begun talks with Russia and a U.N. arms control committee about strengthening Internet security and limiting the military use of cyberspace, The New York Times reported.

The effort was a virtual version of the nuclear arms talks being held between the two nations in Geneva – but rather than focusing on bombs and missiles, the discussions are aimed at curbing the increasing level of online attacks.

The Kremlin said President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev discussed ongoing negotiations for a successor to an expired nuclear weapons treaty Saturday, adding that the two sides are making "substantial progress" on the matter.
