(Reuters) - If someone did just knock North Korea off the Internet for half a day, it wouldn't have taken much.
With barely 1,000 Internet addresses, one Internet service provider and one connection to the outside world via China, North Korea's cyberlinks are negligible - barely one percent of that of Afghanistan, a similarly impoverished country with a roughly comparable population.
By the same token, closing down the links wouldn't have had much of an effect within North Korea. For internal online communications it uses a closed Intranet network, but that was apparently not affected, according to officials across the border in the South.
North Korea is "one of the least connected countries in the world," said Matthew Prince, CEO of U.S.-based CloudFlare, which, among other services, protects websites against web-based attacks.
It's also one of the most vulnerable, said Jim Cowie, chief scientist at Dyn, a U.S.-based Internet performance company.
"North Korea, historically, is fairly fragile," he said after Internet access to North Korea was restored at 0146 GMT on Tuesday. Internet links to the country remained snapped for several hours, but Cowie said the country had experienced outages of similar length this year.
