US TO BUILD SHADOW WEB

leave a comment »

When a wave of revolution crashed over the Middle East this spring, many said what ended in the streets began with 140 characters or less — through social media like Twitter, YouTube and Facebook.

Hoping to harness the people power of online communication, the US State Department is providing $2 million in grants for the “Internet in a suitcase” to help dissidents circumvent repressive regimes’ Internet censorship with mobile Web technology.

The suitcase is part of the $70 million the US State Department will spend on Internet circumvention technology in 2011.

The suitcase is designed to give dissidents a mobile web with mesh technology that can run through cell phones and other devices, and that doesn’t have to travel through centralized servers that are easily shut down by governments.

But John Young, founder of confidential document clearinghouse Cryptome, said that American suitcase servers will serve a “dual purpose.”
