The collections of these measures, the internet due to features such as widespread usability and access, and given that the entirely new forms of interactions, activities, and have created social organizations of the importance of these finds INESTIMABLE.
The Iranian government’s security forces as well as newly established unit of Iranian Revolutionary Guards accompanied Cyber Division Afta (Security Information Exchange space) in order to deal with free flow of information contrary to what the Internet using their promotional possibilities going into the community have abolished the ability of high not And their goals due to spending millions of dollars of state assets, and having features, and arrest, and imposition of censorship experiences of leading countries such as China has done.
