G8: Protect the Net

For the first time, Leaders of G8 developed countries are going to discuss Internet policy. Instead of promoting Net Neutrality, User Privacy and combating Online Censorship, the French Government has locked civil society out of these conversations, while inviting CEOs which will line corporate pockets while curtailing our digital rights.

Online censorship can possibly affect such area as college paper help. A lot of students use this kind of academic assistance to be able to cope with the wide range of tasks at school. If this happens, many people will not be able to obtain their diplomas and a lot of professional writers will lose their source of income.

Comments of the Internet Society of Mauritius in relation to ICTA's Public Consultation on Transition from IPv4 to IPv6 in Mauritius

On January 31 2011, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) allocated two blocks of IPv4 address space to APNIC, the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) for the Asia-Pacific region. On February 3, IANA allocated equally the remaining blocks to each of the five RIRs: Africa (AFRINIC), Asia Pacific (APNIC), North America (ARIN), Latin America and the Caribbean (LACNIC), and Europe and the Middle East (RIPE NCC). Each of these blocks represents about 16.7 million possible addresses. In response to IPv4 address exhaustion, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) created IPv6, a new version of the Internet Protocol with a vastly expanded address space. The new version also included many desired features such as enhanced security. As work progressed, many IPv6 improvements have been incorporated into IPv4 networks, leaving a vastly increased address space as the one clear feature of IPv6. 


The Internet Society of Mauritius is in the process of rejuvenation. We are seeking members and leaders.
