==[[International humanitarian law (jus in bello)|International humanitarian law (''jus in bello'')]]== <section begin=US_2012 IHL /> "In the context of an armed conflict, the law of armed conflict applies to regulate the use of cyber tools in hostilities, just as it does other tools. The principles of necessity and proportionality limit uses of force in self-defense, and would regulate what may constitute a lawful response under the circumstances. There is no legal requirement that the response to a cyber armed attack take the form of a cyber action, as long as the response meets the requirements of necessity and proportionality."<ref>[https://harvardilj.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/15/2012/12/Koh-Speech-to-Publish1.pdf Harold Hongju Koh, International Law in Cyberspace, 18 September 2012], 5</ref><section end=US_2012 IHL />
