Tech Highlight: CeNo Censorship Circumvention

NetFreedom Pioneers wishes to highlight the innovative new CeNo technology. CeNo was invented to preemptively defend against possible national intranets − networks maintained by a nation or country in order to restrict its population's access to outside media.

CeNo bypasses Internet censorship and gives users unlimited access to the most heavily restricted and censored content. It does this by caching and storing censored website content inside an uncensored zone network and uses encrypted transport protocol to transfer this content between users. Users can therefore surf anonymously and have plausible deniability.

CeNo uses GitHub, Freenet, and Bundler, and is a project of eQualit.ie. EQualit.ie is an organization dedicated to “digital security for civil society.” It “develops open and reusable systems with a focus on privacy, online security, and information management. [It’s] goal is to create accessible technology and improve the skill set needed for defending human rights and freedoms in the digital age.”

Congratulations to e.Qualit.ie and to CeNo on its success! Their efforts to combat censorship are much needed and deserve to be applauded.
