Censorship Monitoring

I developed a WordPress plugin which interrogates a server running the Blocking Middleware by OpenRightsGroup. This middleware can test, through a set of connections to diverse Internet Service Providers if a web address is censored or blocked in a given country.

Co-developed with Martin Gutsch of zwoelf medien and available under GPL license through Github. Martin also authored a Perl implementation for the middleware.

Unfortunately it’s not possible to install the plugin without having access or having set up a server or so called middleware. But the code of this server is free software, so it’s up to you to get it up and running.
