Christopher Painter, the State Department’s coordinator for cyber matters, said he is developing measures to bolster the nation-states’ trust in cyber technology, FCW reported Monday.

During a cyber conference in Georgetown University, Painter proposed that countries exchange points-of-contact and discuss cyber doctrine, noting that establishing cyber norms through a treaty is unlikely due to the rapid-changing nature of cyber technology, Sean Lyngaas reports.

Painter also said he is eyeing a principle of self-restraint among nation-states that would take effect during peacetime, according to the report.
