Tallinn Manual 2.0 on the International Law Applicable to Cyber Operations 2nd edition expands on the highly influential 1st edition by extending its coverage of the international law governing cyber operations to peacetime legal regimes. The product of a 3-year follow-on project by a new group of 20 renowned international law experts; it addresses such topics as state responsibility; sovereignty; human rights; and the law of space; air; and the sea. Tallinn Manual 2.0 identifies 154 ‘black letter’ rules governing cyber operations and provides extensive commentary on each rule. Although Tallinn Manual 2.0 represents the views of the experts in their personal capacity; the project benefitted from the unofficial input of many states and over 50 peer reviewers.
