Re: Sharing is caring

I'd not noticed this conference before. But it's the first logical outcome of countries getting together to cooperate in this way that came to mind. The Saudis have a firewall, I'm not sure how effective it is mind, but then they've got loadsamoney. Iran have the manpower, and possibly the knowhow, but I'm not sure they have the equipment budget. So I think they operate by disrupting domains they don't like at crucial times and playing games with routing. Russia have the knowhow but are short of cash - but it would probably be too embarrassing to take Chinese help.

It's not like it's easy, as it means routing via China or building outposts of the Great Firewall around the world - but I bet it's nor impossible either.
