Iranian government departments will disconnect from the Internet

Iranian government departments will disconnect from the InternetIran has decided to disconnect its ministries and other government departments from the Internet. This will be done to protect against cyber attacks, similar to those in which the famous viruses Stuxnet and Flame were used. The trip is scheduled for September.

Iran's Minister of Information and Communication Technology, Reza Tagipur, claims that intelligence information of strategic importance is vulnerable in a worldwide network. The Internet does not arouse the credibility of the minister, since, in his opinion, is controlled by one or two countries hostile to Iran.

The minister plans to create an internal national network that will replace the Internet. This project should be completed in the next year and a half.

The Stuxnet and Flame viruses that have infected a large number of computers in Iran over the past few years are believed to be the product of a joint development of specialists from Israel and the United States. Stuxnet, discovered in 2010, carried out attacks on Iran’s nuclear facilities. Flame, discovered in 2012, had Iranian oil ministry and the country's main export terminal as targets, ITAR-TASS reports.

    Our ministries need to be turned off, otherwise they sit on Twitter and classmates, they don’t want to work at all.

      How are you right. I completely agree. And they merge all the info through Twitter.
      And then Microsoft signed an agreement with the US government to view Skype correspondence and wiretapping.
      We have our own servers. Let there be registered. And block Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo and others are not our resources.

    Well done guys! They know what they are doing. Any war begins with an attack with the most advanced and high-tech means of attack, and ends with a banal bayonet attack and hand-to-hand combat in the trenches. Iran essentially makes defense in depth and is preparing for direct contact in all planes. And the Internet, networkcentricity and online battle picture? Against the poets, it’s good of course, but against the normal opponent, it will quickly disappear. And carrier pigeons will be more reliable, they will not pick up any electronic viruses there, and you still have to manage to shoot a bird, you won’t take such a patriot)))
