Lead by Michael Schmidt, professor at the United States War College, the recent online war rules establishment is to guide military leaders with regards to the engagement with online battles.
Titled Tallinn Manual on the International Law Applicable to Cyber Warfare, the book was named after its initiative origin in the Estonian capital.
Officers and academics who worked on the book said the purpose is not to lay down propositions for world governance of electronic armies.
However, the publication aims to protect neutral nations and civilians in cyberspace in a similar fashion as in the geographical war zone.
Although currently unofficial in status, academics deem the manual as a significant guideline in the modernisation of rulebooks for the information age.
Released earlier this month, the manual can be obtained online as a published draft or a printed text through Cambridge University Press.
