The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is testing the "military Internet"

It's no secret that the military and special servicesfor their purposes they use dedicated and super-secure communication channels for data exchange. And in this area are regularly tested new technologies. For example, quite recently, the Russian army, as part of its planned exercises, tested high-speed lines for exchanging information that can form the basis of a high-speed “military Internet”, which, by the way, will also have an excellent system of protection against hacking.

What is the speed of the "military Internet"?

According to the publication "Izvestia", speed"Military Internet" reaches 300 megabits per second. The communication session was conducted between field control points located at a distance of more than 2000 kilometers from each other. For these lines, the Ministry of Defense used more than 1,500 mobile systems to process and encrypt signals. Military experts believe that it is impossible to access such networks from outside. Data exchange provides a highly secure local wireless network that allows you to transfer large files, including video and audio messages.

How is the "military Internet"

During the exercise, digital and mobile were used.complexes for information processing. All transmitted data is encrypted using the Nickel mobile systems. Nickel is, in fact, a high-speed cryptographic router that allows you to both relay data and encrypt it within the network. In addition, he is even able to create internal secure subnets. The military managed to deploy all vehicles within 1,5 hours by 1,500 troops.

This is interesting: Satellite Internet from Ilona Mask may be banned in Russia.

The created network is completely autonomous and does not havetraffic exchange points connecting it with the "external" Internet. This avoided possible leaks. In the future, such communication lines will allow organizing high-speed transmission of information of almost any size at any point of the Russian Federation.

Stable communication lines provide sustainablethe work of automated control systems. To create such communication channels, the tropospheric one is used (satellite edition: one of the types of radio communication), satellite and other types of long-distance communication. Unlike the Internet, these are completely closed channels. The main advantage of military networks is that they are absolutely autonomous and resistant to external influences - even theoretically, third-party consumers cannot access them.

Also, of course, it would be interesting to know howSoftware and communication standards are used by the military to organize their networks. For obvious reasons, this is classified information, but the use of, for example, foreign equipment or protocols can negate all methods and encryption methods.

Why do you need a "military Internet"

As stated in the military, the main tasksuch communication channels - data transmission and processing. The modern control system of the troops allows the headquarters to obtain comprehensive information directly from the battlefield. For example, in real time to see the fuel reserves of combat vehicles. At the moment, the military is creating temporary networks to test the capabilities of their work in real field conditions, but later this type of communication can be used not only on the battlefield. But, for example, in areas of emergency situations and natural disasters.
