The Defense Department is trying to figure out the rules of engagement in cyberspace, Defense.gov reports.

The doctrine includes: the definition of cyber war, reasonable responses to cyber attack and who — if anyone — has the authority to shut down the Internet.

The Joint Staff is reviewing the doctrine, which should define when the military can go on the cyber offensive. Once it is approved, Cyber Command will put out guidance and tailor its training accordingly.

Gen. Keith Alexander, the head of U.S. Cyber Command, told the International Systems Security Association Conference that the doctrine, laws, policy and standing rules of engagement will shape how the military trains its cyber warriors.
