[liberationtech] Iranian Internet Infrastructure and Policy Report - Feb 2013

Colleagues,

Early last week, Small Media released the second iteration of its "Iranian
Internet Infrastructure and Policy Report," which seems particularly
relevant at this point, especially the comment:

*Where the Supreme Council of Cyberspace promotes new policies on the
registration of VPNs, we can expect that unregistered VPN connection will
be blocked and throttled. As VPNs have been one of the most popular
anti-filtering mechanisms, this rhetoric also highlights the necessity of
educating users on the new and differing types of anti-filtering
technologies freely avail- able. *

For the sake of congruence between past works, I would also point out the
isolation of the VPN registration site in Iran's private domestic network.

vpn.ir. 3342 IN A 10.201.22.74


In the few days since the report was released, a lot has changed, and there
has been progress in identifying the mechanism for Tor blocking.

I suspect that Tor is not the only service that is subject to these new SSL
DPI rules and service filtering, however, the extent is not fully clear
yet.

Cordially,
Collin
