CGIProxy

logo_on_big_white_background.png

CGIProxy is “the original anti-censorship software,” allowing anyone anywhere to view and share web content.

It is a clientless solution, meaning users do not need to download anything to use it.

CGIProxy is housed at Berkeley Institute for Free Speech Online (BIFSO), whose primary task is updating CGIProxy to add new features and support new Web technologies. Under OTF support, BIFSO is focused on upgrading the CGIProxy circumvention tool to offer the most efficient and secure tool available to users worldwide. To achieve this BIFSO plans to enable automatic upgrades, enable data gathering that measures unique users and traffic while preserving privacy, and improve user interface in 15 languages to ensure ease of use for non-technical users.
