The project examines the legal regulatory structures for internet security by focusing on established, new and proposed legal security requirements, at both international and national levels, for critical internet infrastructure and cloud computing. The project has four main prongs of research. The first prong studies legal requirements relating to use of cryptography. The second prong studies legal rules concerning the prevention of cybercrime. The third prong examines the role of intergovernmental organisations and international law in establishing security frameworks for critical internet infrastructure and cloud computing. The fourth prong assesses rules on the development and use of privacy-enhancing technologies.
