Researchers Reinvent The Internet To Thwart Censorship
Telex turns the Internet into a proxy server to thwart government censorship.
Telex, a new system developed by University of Michigan and University of Waterloo researchers, claims to disable government censorship by transforming the Internet into a proxy server. Currently, accessing censored sites involves routing requests through a proxy server that acts as an intermediary from clients seeking to connect with blocked servers. But because censors are able to monitor the content of traffic on the whole network, they are able to eventually find and block the proxy too.
