Deception in the Modern, Cyber Battlespace

Deception in the Modern, Cyber Battlespace

(p.195) 9 Deception in the Modern, Cyber Battlespace
Cyber War

William H Boothby

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines what the law says about deception operations in warfare and the implications for the lawful exploitation of cyber deception methods. It first considers whether deception operations in the cyber sphere seem likely and, if so, what form they are liable to take. It looks at the history of the use of deception in warfare. It traces the development of the relevant law, explaining what the modern law permits and, respectively, prohibits. It applies those legal rules to different kinds of cyber deception and asks whether the law challenges, or is challenged by, the foreseeable use of such technologies.

Keywords:   cyberwarfare, cyberwar, cyberspace, international law, deception operations
