While the government's initial efforts to censor the Internet were blunt and
often ineffective, it has started employing more sophisticated tools to
thwart dissidents' attempts to communicate with each other and the outside
world. Iranian dissidents are not alone in their struggle, however, as
several sympathetic hacker groups have been working to keep them online. One
such group is NedaNet, whose mission is to 'help the Iranian people by
setting up networks of proxy severs, anonymizers, and any other appropriate
technologies that can enable them to communicate and organize.' NedaNet
project coordinator Morgan Sennhauser, who has just written a paper detailing
the Iranian government's latest efforts to thwart
hackers<http://emsenn.com/SoIN.pdf> (PDF),
says that the government's actions have been surprisingly robust and have
challenged hackers in ways that the Chinese government's efforts at
censorship have not.
