Russia is planning to briefly disconnect from the internet as part of planning for a future cyber-war.The test will mean data passing between Russian citizens and organisations stays inside the nation rather than being routed internationally.The test is also expected to involve ISPs demonstrating that they can direct data to government-controlled routing points. These will filter traffic so that data sent between Russians reaches its destination, but any destined for foreign computers is discarded.Eventually the Russian government wants all domestic traffic to pass through these routing points. This is believed to be part of an effort to set up a mass censorship system akin to that seen in China, which tries to scrub out prohibited traffic.
