Some time ago, we learned that Iran planned to disconnect its government agencies from the World Wide Web. It seems that the move has already started, officials reporting that all state organizations have already been connected to a secure “national information network.”
According to The Times of India
, representatives of Iran’s communications and technology ministry have revealed that the next step is to connect regular Iranian users to the same infrastructure.
The decision to separate the country’s systems from the rest of the world came after the 2010 cyberattack that relied on the now-infamous Stuxnet virus
Iran plans to fully implement its domestic Internet until March 2013. However, for the time being, it’s uncertain if the country will permanently disconnect its networks from the global Web once the project is finalized.
