Abstract

If we were to acknowledge cyberspace as a standalone strategic domain, I believe it is quite natural to talk about “geography” and “sovereignty” in terms of IR, power, and security within cyber arena as well. Indeed, decrypting the geopolitics of cyberspace may be quite difficult sometimes, but never meaningless. Therefore, the current paper aims to discuss whether and how cyber sovereignty may be relevant for national security, in terms of cyberspace topology and/or geopolitics.

Keywords: national security, cyber sovereignty, geopolitics, cyber warfare, cyberspace.
