Russia in Talks to Create Independent DNS

By CircleID Reporter

The Russian Security Council has proposed development of an independent DNS which would continue to work in the event of global internet malfunctions, according to a report from RT. "The initiative was discussed at the October meeting of the Security Council, which is Russia's top consultative body on national security. ... While discussing the issue, members of the council noted that 'the increased capabilities of western nations to conduct offensive operations in the informational space as well as the increased readiness to exercise these capabilities pose a serious threat to Russia's security.' They decided that the problem should be addressed by creating a separate backup system of Domain Name Servers (DNS), which would not be subject to control by international organizations. This system would be used by countries of the BRICS bloc — Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa."
