To avoid sanctions, Russia establishes its own TLS certificate authority.

To avoid sanctions, Russia establishes its own TLS certificate authority.
TLS certificates assist the web browser in verifying that a domain is associated with a recognised organisation and that information being transmitted between the user and the server is encrypted.

The inability of signing authorities situated in nations that have placed sanctions on Russia to accept fees for their services prevents numerous websites from being able to renew their expired certificates.

Web browsers including Google Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox will display full-page warnings that the pages are vulnerable after a certificate expires, which may cause many users to leave the website.

a national authority
For the independent issuance and renewal of TLS certificates, the Russian government has envisioned a domestic certificate authority as a potential solution.

If the foreign security certificate is revoked or expires, it will be replaced with this one. A complimentary domestic analogue will be offered by the Ministry of Digital Development. According to the Russian public services web Gosuslugi, the service is offered to legal entities – site owners upon request and is delivered within 5 working days (translated).

However, it can take a while for new Certificate Authorities (CA) to pass scrutiny from various businesses before being trusted by web browsers.

The Yandex browser and Atom products from Russia are the only web browsers that now acknowledge Russia’s new CA as reliable, so Russian consumers are advised to use these rather than Chrome, Firefox, Edge, etc.

Sberbank, VTB, and the Russian Central Bank are among the websites that have already obtained and are presently utilising these state-provided certifications.

A list of 198 domains with a notification to use the local TLS certificate has purportedly been distributed in Russian media, but its usage is not now required.

A questionable proposition
Users of other browsers can manually apply the new Russian root certificate to keep accessing Russian websites that use the state-issued certificate. Examples of these browsers include Chrome and Firefox.

However, this raises fears that Russia might misuse its CA root certificate to carry out man-in-the-middle attacks and intercept HTTPS data.

The new root certificate would eventually be added to the list of certificates that have had their validity revoked as a result of this misuse (CRL).
As a result, Chrome, Edge, and Firefox will prohibit access to any websites utilising these domestic certificates, rendering them invalid.

All parties are obliged to trust certificate authorities. However, it is unlikely that the main browser vendors will add Russia to their root certificate stores given that it does not already have any level of trust.

To mitigate the negative effects of Western sanctions on its economy, Russia has taken some extreme steps. Many have assumed that the time has come to shut off communication with the world internet and move its users to the “Runet.”

In a statement distributed to local news agencies in reaction to these claims, the Russian Ministry for Digital Technologies categorically denied that there is a plan to turn off the internet from within.

Press Release

Nine widely used WiFi routers had 226 vulnerabilities.

Nine widely used WiFi routers had 226 vulnerabilities.

Even when using the most recent firmware, security researchers examined nine widely used WiFi routers and discovered a total of 226 possible vulnerabilities in them.

Millions of people use the tested routers, which are made by Asus, AVM, D-Link, Netgear, Edimax, TP-Link, Synology, and Linksys.

The TP-Link Archer AX6000, which has 32 problems, and the Synology RT-2600ac, which has 30 security flaws, are the two devices with the most vulnerabilities.

The examination process
In partnership with CHIP magazine, researchers at IoT Inspector conducted security tests with a focus on models primarily used by small businesses and residential users.

According to Florian Lukavsky, CTO & Founder at IoT Inspector, “vendors provided them with current models, which were upgraded to the newest firmware version, for Chip’s router review.”

“IoT Inspector automatically examined the firmware versions and searched for more than 5,000 CVEs and other security flaws.”

Although not all defects posed the same risk, the researchers discovered a few widespread issues that impacted the majority of the evaluated models:

The firmware contains an outdated Linux kernel.
stale VPN and multimedia features
over-reliance on BusyBox’s earlier iterations
weak default passwords like “admin” are used
Hardcoded credentials are present in plain text.
Changing the router’s default password when configuring it for the first time is one of the most crucial steps you can take to secure it, according to Jan Wendenburg, CEO of IoT Inspector.

Whether an IoT device is used at home or in a corporate network, changing the password upon first use and turning on automatic updates must be regular procedure, according to Wendenburg.

In addition to manufacturer-introduced vulnerabilities, utilising an IoT device with the adage “plug, play, and forget” poses the greatest risk.
