Information Controls Fellow
The fellow will investigate the underlying mechanisms used by China's Great Firewall (GFW) to identify and block various popular censorship circumvention protocols.
There have been many reports from the users that their censorship circumvention servers were blocked. At the same time, preliminary experiments suggest that these censorship circumvention servers have been actively probed by the GFW. The fellow will investigate the underlying mechanisms used by the GFW to identify and block these popular censorship circumvention protocols. The fellow will then provide practical suggestions in building more censorship-resistant protocols.
