Psiphon, known as Human Rights Software is a software project designed by University of Toronto's Citizen Lab under the direction of Professor Ronald Deibert, Director of the Citizen Lab.
Psiphon is designed to help Internet users bypass content-filterint systems setup by governments, such as Burma, China, North Korea, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam and others.
It is a personal proxy application designed to allow users to circumvent Internet censorship from countries where content filtering takes place. It is installed on computers in locations that do not censor the Internet and is accessible through a browser by users in locations that are censored. Users in censored countries do not need to install any software.
Psiphon accepts connections the over HTTPS protocol (port 443), but also has options to run over any port.
Burma Information Technology manger U Aung Kyaw Myo from New Delhi, India discussed about Internet censorships in Burma and how to deal with it. Most Internet users in Burma used yourfreedom software to get information from banned sites and 'Psiphon' is difficult to use in Burma for now.
