Canadian encryption software beats Syrian regime’s censors

    16 July 2012

    Researchers from the University of Toronto's Citizen Lab have developed a piece of Internet software to allow access to censored websites. The software, dubbed Psiphon, encrypts all Internet traffic and funnels it through a server outside the country. The software has been introduced in Syria, and is now helping from 25,000 to 45,000 Syrians bypass government Internet censorship.
