Session:Let's talk about practicalities of internet censorship circumvention
Has description Let's talk about practicalities of interneLet's talk about practicalities of internet censorship circumvention, from the perspective of the reader/user, and from the perspective of the publisher. From the point of view of the reader/user, there is Tor, there are VPNs, there are proxies. While useful and effective, these tools are often illegal, and blocked, in a rising number of countries. Centralized appstores also are obviously revealing themselves as a problem (no surprise to many Internet activists) by blocking VPN apps in certain areas as requested by governments (like Apple in China). From the point of view of the publisher, a solution is needed that does not require the readers/users to install specific software. Requiring or expecting a large population of people to install Tor Browser has proved not to be a workable solution, for example. Domain fronting is in its infancy, browsers still do not support it, and we have seen SNI-based blocking of TLS traffic in the wild - not to mention, it relies on large, centralized providers to front for you. Again, this can mean a government has a way of pushing your content off of the Net simply by using the pressure points of a given large provider. Mobile apps might be a solution, but again, they require cooperation of large appstores. There really doesn't seem to be a good solution.really doesn't seem to be a good solution.  +
