Cyber warfare is a global problem and its solution must also be global. In the past NATO has requested cyber security cooperation from India. This is the correct approach as there must be an international consensus about cyber security cooperation.
Cyber warfare against India is also a fact and reality. India is also interested in fighting against cyber warfare at national and international levels.
However, India would be least interested in cyber warfare regulations that are imposed upon it and when India is not a party to the negotiations that led to the formation of such regulations.
The Tallinn Manual is one such discussion that is talking about international cyber warfare and its consequences. Unfortunately, too much emphasis has been given to it than it deserved.
At Perry4Law Organisation and Perry4Law’s Techno Legal Base (PTLB) we believe that the manual is not and should not be an authoritative guide and it is at most recommendatory. Even the recommendations prescribed by this manual are not binding and decisive while addressing issues of cyber warfare.
We believe that the Tallinn Manual on the International Law is not Applicable to International Cyber Warfare Attacks and Defence. International cooperation and collaboration on cyber security must be ensured instead of the manual approach.
