idcloak Technologies publishes new guidelines on how restricted internet users may locate a private proxy group and sign up for lists of proxy sites delivered by email.
Web proxies are highly popular as tools for tunneling out of local or state censorship. When users have access to fresh proxies every day, they can keep one step ahead of censors' efforts to block known proxy services.
idcloak.com offers its own free web proxy but access to the website domain, as with many other established proxy providers, has recently been closed off by censors.
“When we realised that People's Republic of China, and even some company office filters, were forbidding access to our site, we knew we had to provide alternatives,” says idcloak's senior web researcher, Robin Welles. “We started with a free IP proxy list, which users can distribute themselves, and after that I wrote this article about third-party proxy remailers.”
The new article explains how proxy communities exist deep within the group pages of Google, Yahoo and Facebook. These private groups are often not indexed by search engines so they may only be found by searches carried out within the site after login.
When a group is found, the user must apply for membership and in some cases, pass through a validation procedure. It is clear why: if a censorship filter administrator is given access to the group, all proxies on the distributed lists may be blocked by filters around the world within minutes of their being distributed.
idcloak Technologies is excited about the forthcoming release of a third anti-censorship service: the software-delivered VPN service. “Our VPN will be practically uncensorable. It accesses the internet through an almost limitless number of global IP addresses or private designated IP addresses.”
An early bird discount for the VPN, due to hit the web in the next fortnight, is available on idcloak.com.
