Relay-based Internet censorship circumventer
Psiphon Circumvention System is an open source relay-based Internet censorship circumventer.
The system consists of a client application, which configures a users computer to direct Internet traffic; and a set of servers, which proxy client traffic to the Internet. As long as a client can connect to a Psiphon server, it can access Internet services that may be blocked to the user via direct connection.
- The Internet is not World Wide if someone somewhere is denied access.
- The right to freedom of opinion and expression affects us all, even if censorship does not.
To accomplish its design goals, Psiphon uses computer security technology including encryption and digital signatures. Using these algorithms does not mean Psiphon 3 offers additional security properties such as privacy or authentication of destination sites for users’ Internet traffic. [ref]
