With tension growing between the nations, a possible unseen cyber-war already started, and an ever changing state of computer capability, many questions have been raised about the ethics of cyber-warfare. This paper examines the history of cyber-warfare, making note of cyber-attacks both carried out by, and carried out against the United States. It also looks at the possible future of cyber-warfare, illustrating techniques used now and techniques possibly used in the future of cyber-warfare. Lastly, this paper synthesizes a Biblical worldview into this ever-changing issue. The paper looks at the role of government, in both protecting its citizens and promoting their freedom. It also examines the rules of war, how they have applied in the past, and in what ways these rules should apply to the future.
