ITU DPI Threat to Freedom of Expression
Herdict Blog » Blog Archive » DPI Threat to Freedom of Expression: "The ITU’s non-public development of a DPI standard is alarming given that the ITU is providing a standard for a technology that can and has been used for extensive fine-grained censorship and surveillance. Moreover, it is doing so without any accompanying discussion of how to preserve internet freedom. Perhaps this is unsurprising given how several countries recently tried to use the ITU as a vehicle for increasing filtering and government control of the Internet. Although these proposals were not implemented, it seems that the ITU may still be a vehicle for standardizing censorship through other means." 'via Blog this'
