The United States is presently facing progressively complex global cyberattacks. While critical and dangerous, these cyberattacks are still in the classical realm of such attacks. However, international cyber competition will soon advance beyond this level as it moves toward quantum cyber competition. The global cyber race is very similar to the arms race. An arms race grows rapidly due to the political purposes of the state;1 cyber races also develop swiftly in conjunction with political purposes. A cyber race is a direct variant of an arms race as it helps arms manufacturers to develop better weapons control and guided cyber systems. To meet the political needs of the state, states participate in both weapons and cyber races. States sell arms to developing countries for use in regional wars to test the power of their arms. Cyber states apply cyber arms such as logic bombs, Trojan viruses, and zero-access rootkits directly to attack rival countries by utilizing the intangible, agile, and unpredictable properties of cyber technology. This research discussed how the United States should respond if an adversary attacks using the case studies of principle game theory, the prisoner’s dilemma, the quantum prisoner’s dilemma, or metagame theory. This study showed that if the principle game theory of the prisoner’s dilemma is used to develop a strategy related to obeying or disobeying international law concerning cyberattacks, the United States should disobey international law to protect its interests. The selection of this strategy is supported by the concepts of rational choice theory and deterrence theory. The present study applied metagame theory by building on the core strategies related to obeying or disobeying international law; it was found that the United States has sixteen options for response under this theory. The best outcome illustrated by this research concerning cyber metagame theory was that the United States should continue disobeying international law on cyberattacks until its enemies also obey the law and all parties sign an effective international agreement for international cyber peace. This work also applied the prisoner’s dilemma based on the strategies of applying or avoiding the use of a Quantum Cyber Unit (QCU). The result was that the United States should employ its QCU to protect the interests of US cyberspace. The findings from the classical prisoner’s dilemma also supported this view via the concepts of the rational choice and deterrence theories. Finally, this research study applied the quantum prisoner’s dilemma based on the core strategies of applying or avoiding a QCU with the quantum strategy (a superposition of applying the QCU and avoiding the QCU). The final solution to the quantum prisoner’s dilemma for both the United States and its adversaries in the quantum cyber age was to avoid using the QCU. This does not mean that the United States must avoid using a QCU; rather, if the adversary avoids using its quantum power, then the United States should also avoid using its own QCU.
