Russia: Universal disconnection from the Internet is being prepared

The Russian authorities and major Internet service providers intend to untie the country from the internet. Universal disconnection from the internet will be part of a planned experiment, according to the Russian news agency RosBiznesKonsalting (RBK).

The reason for universal disconnection is to concentrate and provide feedback on amendments to a proposed law introduced in the Russian Parliament in December 2018.Internet

Το προσχέδιο του νόμου επιτρέπει στις Ρώσικες διανομής internet να εξασφαλίσουν την ανεξαρτησία του Rωσικού διαδικτυακού χώρου (Runet) in case of a foreign attack to disconnect the country from the rest of the internet.

In addition, Russian telecommunications companies will have to install the appropriate "technical means" to redirect all Russian Internet traffic to exchange points approved or operated by Roskomnazor, Russia's largest broadcaster.

Η Roskomnazor θα επιθεωρεί την κυκλοφορία και θα μπλοκάρει το απαγορευμένο , εκτός του ότι θα διασφαλίζει ότι η κυκλοφορία μεταξύ Ρώσων χρηστών θα παραμένει εντός της χώρας και ότι δεν μεταφέρεται μέσω εξυπηρετητών από το εξωτερικό, απ'όπου θα μπορούσε να παρεμποδιστεί.

Η ημερομηνία για τη δοκιμή δεν έχει αποκαλυφθεί ακόμα, αλλά θα πρέπει να πραγματοποιηθεί πριν από την 1η Απριλίου, πριν την προθεσμία υποβολής τροποποιήσεων στον επερχόμενο νόμο που είναι γνωστός και σαν Digital Economy National .

Το πείραμα αποσύνδεσης δοκιμών συμφωνήθηκε σε μια συνεδρίαση της ομάδας για την ασφάλεια πληροφοριών στα τέλη Ιανουαρίου. Η Natalya Kaspersky, διευθύντρια της Ρώσικης εταιρείας InfoWatch και συνιδρυτής της , προεδρεύει της ομάδας, η οποία περιλαμβάνει στελέχη από μεγάλα Ρώσικα telcos όπως τις MegaFon, Beeline, MTS, RosTelecom και άλλους.

The RBK Reported that all internet service providers have agreed to the objectives of the forthcoming bill but disagreed with their technical implementation because they believe it will cause great upheaval in the Russian Internet traffic. Trial disconnection would provide Internet service providers with data on how to react to their networks. also reported that local Internet and also support trial disconnection.

The Russian government is working on this for years now. In 2017, Russian officials said they planned to route 95% of all internet traffic locally by 2020.

The authorities have even created a local backup of the DNS system (), which they first tested in 2014, The second test was done the 2018 and appears to be an important component of Runet when ISPs plan to untie the country from the rest of the world.

The proposed law, which was fully endorsed by the President Putin, and is expected to pass, as the Russian government has agreed to cover the costs of ISPs modifying their infrastructure to install new servers redirecting traffic to Roskomnazor. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
