Ukraine conflict provokes debate on how to define the rules of war in the cyber era

Authorities as varied as the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee and the president of Microsoft have recently questioned how the rules of war may be redefined for the cyber era as the conflict in Ukraine intensifies.
