The special expanded issue of the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence's Tallinn Papers examines the nature, formation and evolution of international legal norms governing cyber activities. The inquiry’s foundational premise is that the rules of international law governing cyber activities are identical to those applicable to other types of conduct. Any differences in their explication and application are the product of the unique nature of cyber activities, not a variation in the legal strictures that shape their content and usage. It conducts the examination by genre of legal norm: treaty, customary law and general principles.
