Submission + - Iran to create national intranet (

whoever57 writes: As a reult of the Stuxnet and Flame viruses (and to reduce western influence on its citizens), Iran plans to create a national intranet. It is planned to be completed in 18 months. At least one expert (Nima Rashedan, an Iranian cyber-security specialist based in the Czech Republic) is skeptical that Iran has the technical capailities to pull this off: ""In terms of cyber security, Iran is one of the most backward countries I know, ...Because of the dis-functionality of the government, I don't think they will be able to implement it properly."
