| ||Technology, 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.
