    Dear JINR employees,
    On behalf of Alexander Alexandrovich Mikhan, Assistant Director of JINR for Security, we would like to provide you with the following information: Lately, there has been an increase in fraudulent activities involving phone calls and messages in messengers.

    26.01.2023 Significant changes to the eduroam terms of service

    As part of the EU sanctions policy, the European partners have decided, from January 20, 2023, to terminate the membership of the Interdepartmental Supercomputing Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences (MSC RAS) as a national service operator in Russia in the European eduroam confederation and to disconnect the top-level European servers from the Russian servers of the national level serving the service.

    In this regard, cross-border eduroam authentication sessions, both for citizens of the Russian Federation located abroad, and for citizens of other countries located on the territory of the Russian Federation, have become inaccessible.

    The MSC RAS, as the national operator of the service, will continue to operate and expand the user base in Russia in the interests of the Russian project participants, and will also consider the possibility of building bilateral international relations for cross-border authentication with friendly countries.

Optical Backbone

The local computer network of JINR consists of a clearly expressed transport backbone of optical backbone and access networks. Access networks at JINR are user networks of scientific and administrative units. Access networks are administered and developed under the supervision of the relevant personnel of the units.

User registration

All JINR staff members and seconded personnel using network and computer resources must be registered with the LIT Network Service of JINR.

External channels

The external optical telecommunication channel uses 10Gbps Ethernet over DWDM approach, when Ethernet data frames are transmitted by the DWDM (Dense Wave Division Multiplexing) technology signal.

JINR network infrastructure

The JINR network infrastructure consists of the following components: The external JINR-Moscow optical telecommunication data channel; The JINR Local Backbone Network; The Local Networks of the JINR divisions.

IntraCity networks

The interworking with city networks is organized on the basis of the traffic exchange node DBN-IX. The local network of the Institute has direct connections at speeds
