Russians were warned about difficulties with access to Internet pages


The deficit of Internet addresses may occur at the end of September in Russia. Therefore, many users will not be able to visit portals and sites that they previously visited without problems.

A representative of one of the world's largest Internet registries RIPE Network Coordination Center (RIPE NCC) Alexey Semenyaka a few days ago said that by the end of September IP-addresses using IPv4 will end in Russia, as well as in the Middle East and Europe. This is due to the huge number of devices connected to the Network. A week ago there were 1.88 million free addresses in these regions, and on 9 September there were already 1.69 million.

In the fall of 2019, sites will begin to constantly require visitors to confirm that they are real people, not robots. Experts explained that this is due to the Internet features.

So, each user has their own IP address. Sometimes several people have the same IP. If they try to enter with a single IP a site, it can take it for a hacker attack or the actions of bots. This situation is quite likely with a lack of free IP-addresses.

Analysts said that millions of people in Russia will face this problem. So, it is necessary to transfer the Internet network to IPv6 protocol, which should completely replace outdated IPv4. Major providers have already taken care of this. For example, instead 192.168.39.156 will be used 3dfc:0:0:0:0217:cbff:fe8c:0. Available combinations will last for a long time.

However, according to the CEO of Telecom Daily Denis Kuskov, some small regional Internet providers may not have enough resources and competencies to switch to the new Protocol.

It became known this week that ROSKOMNADZOR (Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications ) at the request of the FSB (The Federal Security Service) may suspend the activities of two foreign postal services.

ROSKOMNADZOR demanded from companies Heinlein Support GmbH (owns a paid email service Mailbox.org) and SCRYPTmail LLC (operates the Scryptmail.com mail service) to provide encryption keys from user correspondence.

The FSB drew attention to the company's data because false reports of mining came from devices registered on scryptmail.com and mailbox.org. Representatives of the company refused to comment.

Recall, in the fall of 2017, Telegram was fined 800 thousand rubles, and then blocked in Russia because of the refusal to provide the FSB with encryption keys from user correspondence.
