War and conflict have become synonymous with humanity. They have existed since even before human civilization, as we know it, came into being. As time passes by and civilization evolves, the means of war and conflict evolve with it simultaneously and increase their capacity to cause destruction and chaos. One such means, which has developed over the last few decades, is cyber-warfare and it is growing at an unprecedented rate to become something which was hitherto unheard of. In the such circumstances, when there is a lot of ambiguity and nescience with respect to formation of laws which efficiently cater to cyber-space, the question before us is to analyze how can the existing international legal framework be applied to effectively deal with cyber-warfare.
