Mapping the Iraqi IPv4 Space

This project is a continuing look at various countries' IPv4 address
space. For this particular project I look at Iraq (Apr 2006). Iraq is
unique in all the projects I have done in this venue thus far, even
compared to Afghanistan. The majority of the infrastructure that
supported Iraq's Internet was destroyed during the war. And the
rebuilding of that infrastructure, as for the rest of the country
itself, has been painstakingly slow. In fact, it appears that the vast
majority of Internet activity throughout Iraq is taking place on IP
ranges assigned to the US and Britain. Added to that, most of the
infrastructure that supports Internet communication appears to be
conducted over wireless and satellite as opposed to land lines.

Very interesting project from Osin.
