Psiphon inc today launched an official beta test of PsiphonX � the version of its award-winning content delivery system .
"We designed PsiphonX from the ground up based on user feedback. Our aim was to develop
a secure portable client that leveraged Psiphon's zero footprint architecture while
keeping everything seamless and transparent for the user", says Rafal Rohozinski,
CEO of the SecDev group and Psiphon Inc..
PsiphonX is designed to overcome the shortcomings of link-rewriting proxies which made
it difficult and cumbersome to view web 2.0 sites like YouTube and Facebook. PsiphonX
runs from a single executable file which configures the Internet proxy settings of a
machine to point HTTP traffic to a local proxy that then forwards the traffic to a
Psiphon in-proxy via a secure connection (via an SSH Tunnel). When the user quits
PsiphonX, the original Internet configuration is reset.
PsiphonX was built using a rapid prototyping methodology and released as an open source
project. The beta program is designed to get early feedback and engagement from the
open-source community in order to make PsiphonX a better and more secure product. A
public PsiphonX node pointing at Facebook is located at Phacebook
PsiphonX builds upon the award-winning Psiphon platform, which is currently used by
the British Broadcasting Corporation, Voice of America, Radio Free Asia, and other
public international broadcasters to deliver content into countries where their
services are blocked or filtered
The public beta will run through to the end of April.
