The article examines how the law of cyber warfare may evolve in response to the growing centrality of cyber activities to modern life. Drawing on the extant law as set forth in the Tallinn Manual on the International Law of Cyber Warfare, it focuses on the principle of sovereignty, the jus ad bellum, and the jus in bello.
