Roskomnadzor to introduce another technology worth of $300 thousand to block Telegram
So far, the attempts to block the Pavel Durov’s messenger have been futile.
In 2019, Roskomnadzor is going to implement a new technology to fight the prohibited web sites and services including Telegram. BBC News Russian found out the authorities are ready to spend 20 million rubles (roughly $300 thousand) on it. So far, the attempts to block the Pavel Durov’s messenger have been futile.
The new technology is going to be implemented as early as next year, reports the BBC source familiar with the situation. The same time period is confirmed by another source close to the software developer. Both asked not to be named due to the fact that they are not authorized to comment in the media.
It is about a DPI (deep packet inspection) technology. Hardware and software package is set on the Internet access provider; it analyses the traffic and marks out peculiar packages intrinsic to certain web sites and applications. It also smites off the undesired traffic.
“Each and everyone of us has his own gait. For instance, a relative can be learnt by gait in the dark. Each traffic has its own distinctive features, as well,” clarifies Philip Kulin, a creator of Usher2.club, a service of statistics of blocked IP addresses.
DPI differs fundamentally from the current system Roskomnadzor used when they tried to block Telegram.
Aqua business on Baikal. Chinese people to drink the unique lake to the lees? What does this have to do with Deripaska?
Following a request from the West-Baikal Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk has suspended the construction of a water bottling plant in Kultuk township, Slyudyanka district, pending the rectification of defects identified in the course of the inspection. The construction has been put on hold; the court has to make the final decision in two months. In the meantime, public activists and environmentalists are ringing alarm bells. An all-Russia public rally to protect Lake Baikal is scheduled to March 24; its program includes collection of signatures against the plant construction by AquaSib company belonging to Chinese investors. A day after the court decision, a fire occurred on Talovskie swamps in Kultuk – it must be noted that the main claims brought against the project owners pertain to these swamps. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what threats does the project pose to the lake and local environment, how was it approved, whether a ‘water competition’ is possible in the region, and what has oligarch Oleg Deripaska to do with this?
