How does the Internet work in China? or the Golden Shield project

How does the Internet work in China? or the Golden Shield project

Hello dear friend, today I would like to introduce you to the "Great Firewall of China"

The largest American companies took part in the Development of the "Golden Shield" - no matter how strange it may sound.

The shield project began to be done back in 1998, and the official launch took place in 2003.

According to IT industry experts, the cost of creating the shield project cost China $ 800 million.

What is the Great Chinese Firewall?

The Golden Shield Project is an Internet filtering system that blocks access to resources banned by the Communist Party from the outside Internet. Around the world , the Golden Shield is also known as The Great Firewall of China . The censorship does not apply to the special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macau , in these two cities access to the Internet is completely free.

Popular services do not work in China: Google, Gmail, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, Viber, Twitter - if you try to get to - forbidden resources - you will be transferred to the Local Police website with a warning about violation of the law.

Weibo - Chinese Twitter

Blocking is carried out in 5 ways:

Blocking - by IP - addresses

URL blocking

VPN Blocking - Connections

DNS level blocking

Filtering by - base of keywords

Chinese Youtube

And in some places: there is no Internet at all - that is, it is, but it is local "Inside the country" so-called Gwangmyeon

But - don't worry - you are unlikely - to be shot - but the citizen's rating will be reduced! Yes - yes, you heard right, every citizen has a rating system - reliability.

All blocked services have large Chinese counterparts, for example, Twitter will replace Weibo ( https://www.weibo.com/overseas ) YouTube - replaces Yuko / or Yukou - I don’t know how - read exactly) - > https://www.youku. com/

Instead of Google, the Baidu national search engine http://www.baidu.com/

There is also a messenger: Which will replace both viber and instagram: VetChat messenger WeChat - By the way, most open VPN channels are also blocked - but sometimes it works. However, the internet will be very slow! And you need it - do you like it? The price of the Internet in some "Prefectures" is, in my opinion, too inadequate.

Well - what, are you ready for our "Cheburnet"?
