Russia could create internet that is walled off from the rest of the world



On Nov. 1, Russia is set to activate a version of the internet that's walled off from the rest of the world. This is so that it can protect itself in the event of a cyber attack.


On Nov. 1, Russia could disconnect from the internet (theoretically).

A long-planned internet bill would go into effect and lay the foundation for a national network whereby internet service providers are controlled by Roskomnadzor, Russia's telecom agency.

Russia would benefit from the ability to disconnect from the global internet in the event of a cyberwar. Meanwhile, a walled-off version of the web can be used that is sanctioned by Russia.

  2. What exactly is Internet sovereignty? Network Sovereignty is the created effort of a governing entity, such as a state, to create boundaries on some network. It then exerts a form of control, often in the form such as law enforcement over such boundaries. In the context of the Internet, the intention is to govern the web and control it within the borders of a certain state.
