Cyber Operations and the Use of Force in International Law

Marco Roscini

  • Provides a comprehensive understanding of the international legal rules applicable to cyber attacks
  • Examines whether cyber attacks can ever meet the threshold of 'armed conflict' and to what extent rules of international humanitarian law apply to cyber operations
  • Investigates whether a computer network can ever be a legitimate military target, what the status is of civilians involved in cyber attacks, and what implications cyber offences can have for neutral states
