每月一文: 网络攻击的伦理-语言问题

Novakovic, Kristina  
A major debate within cyber ethics literature concerns the way in which the moral nature of cyber-attacks should be understood. The debate can be divided into two general camps; the first camp argues that cyber-attacks are not morally distinctive from kinetic attacks and so we can rely on an already-established ethical framework (i.e. Just War Theory) for their analysis, while the second camp argues that cyber-attacks are morally distinctive from kinetic attacks and require a new ethics. The problem with the respective approaches to the question about the moral nature of cyber-attacks has to do with the language used to discuss this issue.
