The law of information conflict - drawn from the peacetime regime of public international law and the law of armed conflict - is that discipline of international law that governs a state's rights and responsibilities when it conducts operations that affect another state's information or information systems. This text is intended to serve as a modest beginning to the task of providing a detailed analysis of the law of information conflict. It is designed to serve as a framework of analysis for the legal regime that governs the law of information conflict, and to be a useful desk reference for lawyers, policy makers, warfighters, and other professionals concerned with a state's use and misuse of another state's information and information systems.

Although a more thorough introduction to the substance of this book is presented in its first chapter, it is worthwhile to address the principle questions to be answered in evaluating an information operation. First, is this a use of force under international law? Second, if it is, how does the law of armed conflict apply? Answering the first question is the role of the jus ad bellum, the law of conflict management, which governs the transition from war to peace and sets the standards for when that crucial line has been crossed. The second question is governed by the jus in bello, the law of armed conflict, which regulates the actions of belligerents in a conflict and the neutrals around them. This book is structured to reflect these two key questions. Part I is introductory, Part II covers the jus ad bellum, Part III addresses the jus in bello, and Part IV draws conclusions from the material surveyed.
