About the Legal Guide to Botnet Research

Cybersecurity research and development (R&D) involves numerous legal issues due to the fact that it requires communications data to develop and test hypotheses and solutions. Research pertaining to the detection and mitigation of botnets and other malware requires some of the most complex legal analysis because it can involve numerous bodies of law, including foreign laws and treaties. There are few resources available to assist cybersecurity researchers, institutional review boards (IRBs), attorneys, and funding organizations to help determine whether a particular research project could violate laws or organizational policies.

The Legal Guide to Botnet Research serves as a central resource and tool to advance understanding of legal and policy issues associated with cybersecurity research on botnets. This valuable resource will help determine whether proposed cybersecurity research projects could violate laws or organizational policies.

Included in the guide is the Botnet Research Legal Template, which helps clarify which laws are relevant to a particular project and simplifies the analysis required. Additionally, it highlights potential ethical issues and how researchers have been approaching them. Although the report and template are tailored to botnet research, they will be helpful to many other types of cybersecurity research.
