Nation-states impose various levels of censorship on their country’s Internet communications. Regardless of socio-political or economic reasons for censorship, the United Nations has declared that freedom of expression is a universal human right, and people should be permitted to freely communicate information through any medium. Given concerns of Internet censorship and surveillance, software developers have created tools designed to circumvent censorship in places where it exists – enabling communications and access to open information. This research is directed to characterize threats to Internet communications, and evaluate effectiveness of available anti-censorship technologies.
