The National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (NTRA) has confirmed that Internet services in Egypt are not affected by the updates made by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). NTRA has been coordinating efforts with Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the past months. Moreover, NTRA has reviewed the technical procedures and guidelines issued by ICANN concerning the updates made to the secure DNS servers, and has ensured that the services in Egypt are not affected by these updates.

ICANN announced early today that it would make updates to its secure DNS, particularly its encryption codes today October 11, 2018, and that only a small percentage not exceeding 1% of Internet users worldwide may be affected by these updates.
