Currently, cyberspace has already been deemed as “the fifth space” alongside land, sea, air and space. While enjoying the benefits of Internet development, the world is also marred by cyber-attacks. The problem of Internet security has already become a severe challenge gripping the world.

To solve the problem of Internet security, the sovereignty of various countries in cyberspace should be respected, which is the development of the principle of “Respecting Sovereignty” in International Law.

Second, cyberspace should be utilized in peace and an armament race in cyberspace should be restrained.

Further, order in cyberspace should be maintained in accordance with law. In recent years, multiple countries have successively made Internet-related policies, perfected relevant laws, regulations and management systems, thus cyber space governance level was somewhat improved.
