Intervention in National and Private Cyber Space and International Law
2013 (English)In: The Fourth Biennial Conference of the Asian Society of International Law, Delhi, 14 - 16 November, 2013, 2013Conference paper, Abstract (Other academic)
In international law discourse on cyber attacks, there has been much focus on the threshold for the use of force. Cyber attacks or intrusions which do not reach the threshold of the use of force have been held to be unproblematic. However, such intrusions -- including many measures amounting to cyber espionage or counter-terrorism -- will often constitute illegal interventions into the sovereignty of another state, or constitute violations of human rights.Unfortunately, states have not been very helpful in clarifying these issues. States have not agreed to negotiate a new convention or other form of legal instruments, and there is very little opinio juris or public state practice. Nevertheless, the old principles and rules of international law apply to cyber space, too.
