The aim of the contribution is to determine whether existing international conventions and other instruments of legal cooperation are adequate for the containment of cyberterrorism and other use of the Internet for terrorist purposes or whether the instruments should be amended. In light of this aim, the analysis focuses on the questions of whether the computer-specific international instruments are applicable with respect to terrorism and whether the terrorist-specific instruments are applicable in the IT environment. Furthermore, the article provides an initial analysis with respect to the question of whether the various international instruments provide adequate coverage of crimes associated with the use of the Internet for terrorist purposes or whether the instruments exhibit gaps or other general problems regarding this kind of criminal activity that should be addressed in the future.
