Peacetime Regime for State Activities in Cyberspace: International Law, International Relations and Diplomacy (Katharina Ziolkowski ed. 2013) (full-text).
Cyber threats that materialise in the loss of confidentiality, integrity or availability of information and communication technology can have an impact on the stability of States, in extreme cases threatening their existence. In order to minimise such risks, technical precautions certainly need to be taken; however, technical measures alone will not suffice: a solid and reliable legal framework for State activities in cyberspace is essential. The aim of this volume is to propose such a framework by identifying existing prerequisites and offering diverse interpretations, but also by pointing out unsettled issues.
