Access Control and internet Filtering

Looking for an insightful guide to the growing trend of internet filtering, censorship, and online surveillance around the world? Look no further than Access Controlled, a free 635-page PDF file offered by MIT Press. While the first generation of internet controls primarily consisted of building firewalls, today's emerging tools for internet control go beyond just denying access to information. They include targeted viruses, distributed denial-of-service attacks, surveillance, take-down notices, and national information shaping strategies.

Access Controlled, a project from the OpenNet Initiative (ONI), offers a detailed analysis of this new normative terrain. The book includes six substantial chapters that examine internet control in both Western and Eastern Europe, as well as regional reports and country profiles drawn from material gathered by the ONI around the world. The ONI is a collaboration of the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto's Munk Centre for International Studies, Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society, and the SecDev Group.

Stay informed on the evolving landscape of internet control with Access Controlled, a must-read for anyone interested in the topic.
