Solving the Dilemma of State Responses to Cyberattacks

These days I am reading “Inside Cyber Warfare” (among other things). Chapter 4 (Responding to International Cyber Attacks as Acts of War) is written by Lieutenant Commander Matthew J. Sklerov. It is a rewrite of his 111-page thesis on the subject which is available online:

→ “Solving the Dilemma of State Responses to Cyberattacks: A Justification for the Use of Active Defenses against States Who Neglect Their Duty to Prevent

Like I said, I have not read the Thesis, but I am reading Chapter 4 from “Inside Cyber Warfare”. It is highly explanatory of the US strategic and military dogmas, including running cross-border operations against enemies who are non-state actors.
