Armageddon and the Cyberghost: Cyber-attacks as acts of war

Alexander Carter-Silk

The states' right to retaliate against attack is a central pole of international law and politics. But how are we to understand this in the age of the internet. Would China, Russia or the USA be right to retaliate against a cyber-attack from another state? Where would that leave the world today? ...We are a lot closer to international cyber-warfare than you might think.
