Abstract

Technological advancement is always a disruptive process; its impact on society, economics, politics, military and strategic affairs are profound but it takes a certain amount of time before the effects are visible. Cyberspace has been termed as the battlefield of the 21st century. It is considered the most potent threat to international security. With the speed of technological advancement, its wide-ranging affects, and its potential weaponization, a comprehensive study to reconcile the international legal paradigm and cyber warfare is warranted. This article is a discourse analysis to examine the unique nature of cyberspace, the taxonomy and role of cyber operations in the modern-day strategic sphere, and how international law interprets different kind of cyber operations.
