FkdPanda supports an open and uncensored Internet.
We'd like to thank the creators of the Peek-a-booty Project who worked hard to protect these freedoms.
About the Peekabooty Project
The concept and the code
The goal of the Peekabooty Project was to create a product that can bypass the nation-wide
censorship of the World Wide Web practiced by many countries.
The free, easy and quick exchange of information possible on the Internet is seen as a threat by governments in countries where a free press and freedom of expression are not considered to the parts of their people's rights. Such a government would have two options. The first would be to completely ban use of the Internet. This is an impractical measure, as it would close off that country to business opportunities and technological innovation. The preferred option is to make use of filtering computers and software - called firewalls in technological parlance - that make only those Web pages approved by the government available to their citizens.
In layperson's terms: firewalls act as intermediaries between users and the rest of the Internet. In countries where the Web is censored, the only way to access the Internet is through the firewalls. A user enters a URL - the address of a Web page - into his or her browser. This URL gets passed to the firewall, which checks to see if it is one of those banned by the government. If the URL is not on the list, the firewall forwards the request for the Web page and the contents of the page are relayed back to the user, who can then read it. If the URL is on the banned list the firewall refuses to forward the request and sends a page back to user indicating that the page he or she requested cannot be viewed by order of the government.
In addition to barring access to specified Web sites, firewalls can also monitor the data that
passes through them. They can be configured to look for content that the government considers
inappropriate or subversive and either make a note of who requested the content or simply
break the connection.
21 countries currently censor the World Wide Web. These countries are populated by a hundreds of millions of people who have been denied access to information by their goverment. We want to create software that will give these people the free access to information on that Web that we enjoy.
How it works
Peekabooty is software that enables people inside countries where the Web is censored to
bypass those censorship measures. The theory behind it is simple: bypass the firewalls by
providing an alternate intermediary to the World Wide Web.
Peekabooty takes advantage of three things:
Peekabooty is software run by "global-thinking, local-acting" people in countries that do not censor the Internet. A user in a country that censors the Internet connects to the ad hoc network of computers running Peekabooty. A small number of randomly selected computers in the network retrieves the Web pages and relays them back to the user. As far the censoring firewall is concerned, the user is simply accessing some computer not on its "banned" list. The retrieved Web pages are encrypted using the de facto standard for secure transactions in order to prevent the firewall from examining the Web pages' contents. Since the encryption used is a secure transaction standard, it will look like an ordinary e-business transaction to the firewall. Users in countries where the Internet is censored do not necessarily need to install any software. They merely need to make a simple change to their Internet settings so that their access to the World Wide Web is mediated by the Peekabooty network. Installing the software makes the process of connecting to the Internet simpler and allows users to take fuller advantage of the Peekabooty network.
"Global-thinking, local-acting" people in countries that do not censor the Internet install
Peekabooty, which can run "in the background" while they use their computer for their day-to-
day work. It doubles as a screen saver that displays its status as well as information about
human rights and censortship.
Peekabooty can be classified as a distributed or peer-to-peer application. This means that its actions are the result of several computers working collectively rather than a single computer doing all the work. The distributed nature of Peekabooty makes it harder for a hostile government or group to shut it down. Given enough users, it would be almost impossible to block access to or otherwise disable all the computers in the Peekabooty network. Each computer in the Peekabooty network "knows" of only a few other computers in the network. This makes it more difficult for a hostile government to discover the Internet addresses of Peekabooty machines and add them to their "banned" lists or target them for "cracking".
