Cyber Weapons & Export Control: Incorporating Dual Use with the PrEP Model

Some data acquisition/transfer device at CERN (CMS experiment).

In “Cyber Weapons and Export Control,” Trey Herr and Paul Rosenzweig take up the complex task of characterizing software products in the context of the current export regulatory regime. Herr and Rosenzweig use their PrEP model to distinguish the components of the software functionally. They isolate the payload component as requiring special consideration, and propose a policy approach to regulating software exports based on their effects.
