The Rights and Obligations of the States in the Information's War

Moustafa Na’os

Abstract


This study begins with a short overview of the various aspects of cyberspace warfare in an attempt to make clear the new form of war which represents to international peace and security. It then moves on to examine cyberspace warfare within the context of currently existing international legal norms on the use of force and to determine if these norms can be applied to this new form of warfare and if so, to what extent. Finally, the essay attempts to make apparent a twofold fact: first, that current legal norms on the use of force can only be applied to cyberspace by analogy and up to a certain point, hence there is a need to develop a regulatory framework specifically tailored for this purpose; second that the cause behind this need is the ‘special’ nature of cyberspace warfare.
