The International Legal Constraints on Cyber Operations

Cyber capabilities have fundamentally changed the nature of international “armed” conflict but have not done away with the underlying principles of international law. While there is general agreement that long-standing international legal principles and norms of armed conflict survive technological change, there is no consensus among experts about how these rules apply to cyber operations.

This session will provide an overview of issues such as:

  • Sovereignty
  • Prohibition of intervention
  • The use of force
  • Attribution
  • Cyber espionage
  • International humanitarian law.

The discussion examines the interplay between the use of offensive cyber-capability and international law that national security managers must understand.
