Censorship in the Internet
Rajecký, Michal ; Rychlý, Marek (referee) ; Očenášek, Pavel (advisor)
Internet censorship is a phenomenon of the time, which significantly restricts freedom of speech. The aim of this work was to find out the current state of Internet censorship in China. As part of the analysis, I designed and implemented a tool for testing website availability and detecting censorship of potentially blocked keywords. This tool verified different levels of access to a target server. The analysis showed that the city of Beijing forms a significant part of China's system in the implementation of censorship, as it loses a large part of Internet communication, up to 97% of all lost data. Testing also revealed the variability of censorship over time. On average, 57.6% of websites received different results during the testing period. This article provides an up-to-date picture of the state of Chinese Internet censorship and its impact on users. Censorship in China can be considered centralized, very extensive and variable over time.
