By deploying a homegrown firewall, Iran is fully prepared to fend off Stuxnet-like cyberattacks, says ICT Minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi.
In an Instagram post, Jahromi wrote on Thursday, “Backed by Iran IT Organization, young academicians have developed a firewall that can protect the country’s industrial infrastructure against cyberattacks like Stuxnet.”
The minister noted that the cybersecurity tool can be employed for protecting the country’s key infrastructure, such as the power distribution network. 
“The firewall has been successfully tested. After securing the approval of the High Council of Cyberspace, the firewall will be deployed to protect Iran’s key industrial infrastructure,” he said.
