Abstract

A year ago, negotiations led by the United States to change the terms of the Wassenaar Arrangement collapsed. At the behest of the United States, the December 2016 Wassenaar Plenary was tasked with re-evaluating the amendments made in the 2013 Plenary which introduced the regulated export of dual-use cyber technologies, namely intrusion software and IP surveillance networks. The Wassenaar Arrangement is one of several non-proliferation arrangements India has sought to enter, and it is therefore pertinent to analyse the implications of the 2013 Amendment regulating the export of intrusion software and IP surveillance networks.This paper examines the failed negotiations from an international and an Indian perspective.

Keywords: cybersecurity, wassenaar, international relations, non-proliferation, international trade
