This paper seeks to understand how cyber-technologies are changing the space security environment. It argues that digital networking has resulted in changes that require us to reevaluate the nature of both legal and strategic limitations on states in relation to the use of anti-satellite (ASAT) technology. This paper contends that the introduction of cyber-technologies is changing the limitations that have traditionally restrained states in the development and use of ASAT technologies.
