Legality in Cyberspace: An Adversary View

Legality in Cyberspace: An Adversary View

While conflict in cyberspace is not new, the legality of hostile cyber activity at a state level remains imperfectly defined. While there is broad agreement among the United States and its allies that cyber warfare would be governed by existing laws of armed conflict, with no need for additional treaties or conventions to regulate hostilities online, this view is not shared by many nations that the United States could potentially face as adversaries. 
 
The author illustrates the very distinct set of views on the nature of conflict in cyberspace that pertains to Russia. He provides an important window into Russian thinking and explains how fundamental Russian assumptions on the nature of cyber activity need to be considered when countering, or engaging with, Russian cyber initiatives.
 
This paper examines Russian perspectives on the nature of conflict in cyberspace. In particular, the author illustrates the very distinct set of views that Russia holds on conflict in cyberspace in comparison to the US and how they need to be considered by the US when it counters or engages with Russian cyber initiatives.
