The newest essay, “To Confront Cyber Threats, We Must Rethink the Law of Armed Conflict,” by Jeremy and Ariel Rabkin, is available on the Emerging Threats essay series page. In this essay the authors discuss deliberate attacks on websites and computer networks, so-called cyber attacks, that are part of life on the Internet, with some foreign governments encouraging, assisting, or directing such attacks. In a serious international crisis, similar attacks might be launched with dire consequences.
