Proposal for cyber war rules of engagement

BBC reports that the EastWest Institute in New York will propose that cyber war needs rules of engagement. The draft document also calls for a fresh definition of “nation state”, with new “territories” and players in cyberspace beyond government – such as multinationals, NGOs and citizens. The proposal also says that ambiguity about what constitutes cyber conflict is delaying international policy to deal with it, and that perhaps the idea of “peace” or “war” is too simple in the internet age when the world could find itself in a third, “other than war”, mode.
