TLDR, an AS advertised itself as containing every range?
>>71834548
realistic answer
>>71834283
expensive answer

i have a poor understanding of the technology, but i would probably try to MITM the OCSP servers firefox and chrome use. they are apparently sent in http?? i guess we should be using dns over ssl huh. anyways, i would have my MITM OCSP nodes declare every cert they are queried for as revoked
under the presumption that internet access was insecure until my mitm nodes were pulled, many would just go jerk off
however many would just fall back to HTTP for their business communications because stupid boomers.
right around this time, people would realize there was money to be made, and start trying to MITM all of these HTTP connections. hackers would be trying to digitally and maybe even physically compromise a bunch of PBX's at once to capitalize on this opportunity, and i think infrastructure would fully shit itself pretty quick, start recovering once they found my nodes and pulled them, and not be fully fixed for quite a while after

thoughts? im not sure i fully understand the technology but this seems workable

They have, Google it.
Still, it's thick and it will shock you to death as soon you crack open the shielding. Also, you will have to cut multiple ones to do real damage, and they can replace the part you cut off rather easily, they don't need to replace the entire cable.

that's why i said i would have my man in the middled server respond with denials rather than just time out? so every certificate would return that it was revoked

Idk what exactly do you mean by "the entire internet", in any case a modular self replicating polymorphic threat would be a way to start

how would they even do that? dont believe that they are a isp and dont you need to be to have any kind of modification access to bgp configurations

maybe dont touch it then? im sure that the people who would be interested in doing such things have the proper tools for it.

so just ignore the stupid cert warning like usually because its always about some misconfiguration or self signed thing not a hacked server or fake cert?

that's obvious considering you can't tell the difference between the Internet and the WWW. Just because you shut down anything http doesn't mean the Internet would shut down.

>>71839899
i didn't say anything about shutting down http. this would fuck SSL. openvpn uses SSL, https uses ssl, ssh uses ssl. a majority of encrypted protocols would fail, which would constitue a major service disruption. furthermore people trying to take advantage and trying to MITM in PBXes could very well create some big problems for all connectivity

Nothing short of no limits global thermonuclear war given an arsenal equivalent to US/Russia at their peak would do the job. Even that has a large chance of leaving large chunks up, and those chunks may still be able to communicate with each other through various means. The internet is very durable on a global level.

>>71838376
Dumbass, just dump some explosives along it. Fucker will get torn to bits. One bomb per mile for a few hundred miles would be a massive pain in the dick to repair. You'd have to do this to many cables at once to actually cut large countries off though.

The internet is deliberately decentralised to prevent this exact situation. Governments can order the internet shut down on a national scale, but that would be about it. Theoretically, EMPs or a solar flare can shut down the internet, but only in the area affected. But if a solar flare powerful enough ever does hit the earth, no internet is the least of our worries. But even that is less likely to happen as more key infrastructure is being emp-proofed. There is some concern about how there are fewer DNS providers, or a concentration of data centre companies, but it is in these companies best interest to prevent shutdowns, so I doubt they will be easy to attack or disrupt completely. You could try the ISPs and companies that own the international cables, as that is also how governments shut the internet down. If you can control the ISP's kill switch, you can shut down everything the ISP provides service to, but you will need to control a lot of ISPs to control even a single country.

10% of the entire internet traffic was kill when cloudflare was down.
attack google, amazon, microsoft and some other big cloud providers and while you wont take down the entire internet a large part of it will be kill.
if you want the entire internet offline attack the power infrastructure. its easier.
>>
>>71840455
It's not decentralized anymore. Most people visit Facebook, twitter, google, reddit and CloudFlare websites. Take those 5 down and you'll have full blown panic in the west. Same in China and Russia. Qq, vk, etc.

do you not have the potential to MITM an unsecured connection if you have access to a PBX? i guess i had some stupid assumptions about the routing architecture of a PBX
