    Default Hackers could be fair game for deadly force, cyberwar experts say

    From March, but worth thinking about.

    March 22, 2013 CSO Deadly force against organized hackers could be justified under international law, according to a document released Thursday by a panel of legal and cyber warfare experts.

    Use of lethal force on those behind a cyberattack on a nation would be legal if the virtual attack meets criteria similar to those currently accepted for real-world warfare, said Michael N. Schmitt, chairman of the International Law Department at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, R.I.

    Schmitt is the editor of the Tallinn Manual on the International Law Applicable to Cyber Warfare, a 300-page book put together by a score of experts at the request of NATO and published by Cambridge University Press.

    At the recent Infosecurity Europe conference in London, Drew Amorosi was joined by representatives of ISACA (Peter Wood), the SANS Institute (Eric Cole), and City University London (David Stupples) for a discussion on state-sponsored cyber activities. The panel considers nations that are active in this area, the information they are targeting, and why. Also discussed are legal frameworks and the recently published Tallinn Manual on the International Law Applicable to Cyber Warfare.
