 2009 OIW finalTechnology, Policy, Law, and Ethics Regarding U.S. Acquisition and Use of Cyberattack Capabilities 
This report concludes that although cyberattack capabilities are an important asset for the United States, the current policy and legal framework for their use is ill-formed, undeveloped, and highly uncertain and that U.S. policy should be informed by an open and public national debate on technological, policy, legal, and ethical issues they pose.
