If War Comes, Russia Could Disconnect from the Internet. Yes, the Entire Country

Quote:
A two-year-old effort to allow the Russian military to rely solely on internal networks during wartime has apparently blossomed into support for a digitally isolated government and civil society as well, a top advisor to Vladimir Putin said this week.

“Technically, we are ready for any action now,” Herman Klimenko told Russian television station NTV on March 6. He added that any such move would not be painless.


Why wait? Maybe it's time to test out his theory right now.
No war needed, just disconnect Russia from the internet, and see if their project works.

Do we need Russians having access to the internet?
How about OUR internet? Do we really need Russians having access to OUR US internet?

What are we gaining by allowing them access to our domestic digital infrastructure?
I don't really see much of anything.
Oh, so we won't be able to order vodka and caviar online anymore, boo hoo.
And there go all those hot Russian mail order brides.
Awww snap.

Early in the Internet, there was a thing called "Internet Death" reserved for bad actors. This was usually just for nodes that sent continuous streams of bad packets, like a DenialOfService attack. But Russia as an entire country can be held responsible when government-sponsored hackers do the stuff they have been doing.

Sentence them to Internet Death for a year, and see if they can reform their ways. Maybe that would hurt enough for them to depose their President for Life and play nice again.

I wish I knew more about IPv6 to understand how it parses internet addresses, but from what little I can gather, apparently it has no trouble rinsing out the spoofs and getting down to the nitty gritty, or would have no trouble if we weren't still so dependent upon IPv4, as I still see all those IPv4 addresses being used today.

Is it like a phone company still catering to rotary dial?
Most of them still do, you know. You still CAN connect an old rotary dial phone and make calls.

I think it is time we updated all the patches and started being 100% exclusive with IPv6 addresses. From what I heard, there's enough of them available to give a unique address to every single blade of grass on the planet with a few thousand trillion left over for every single computing device and every living being with a few thousand trillion left over after that. Am I right?
