The much feared govt firewall technology has been activated inside Russia

A law introducing new controls on the internet has come into force in Russia amid concerns it may be used by the government to silence its critics.
In theory, the "sovereign internet" law gives officials wide-ranging powers to restrict traffic on the Russian web.

All the official talk is about how this law will ensure Russia keeps functioning if the West "attacks" and cuts the country off from the internet..
All the chatter, though, is that the law actually aims to increase control over the internet here inside Russia. The DPI technology being tested allows the state regulator to filter traffic and block what it wants. The criteria for such censorship is usefully vague.

Whilst I think this is a bad thing I have to admit that here in the UK the govt already has such powers albeit they cant exercise them secretly, transparent govt is it seems something to be feared in some lands.

Another important point here is that there will no longer be any wriggle room for countries to pretend they know nothing about malicious/attack traffic emanating from their countries, in this respect this may prove a devastating own goal.
