This chapter examines the application of the law of armed conflict to cyberwar. It provides definitions related to cyberwar, analyses the actors in this unique battle space, and evaluates examples of relevant activities. The chapter suggests that though there are certain problems with the application of the law of armed conflict to cyberwar, it appears to cover the effects of a cyber attack, and that this is a testament to the strength and flexibility of the law.

Keywords:   armed conflict, cyberwar, legal application, cyber attack, computer security
