苹果对App Store启用https. 中国威胁审查App

最新,根据纽约时报的报道,中国可能将要求所有的app需要备案才能上线。这时间太巧了,因为Apple也最近在iTunes启用了https,用户在iTunes的搜索和下载都被加密。

在启用https之前,搜索特定关键字比如"vpn"会导致iTunes连接被重置,访问特定App的介绍页面也会导致连接被重置。这意味中国用户没有办法搜索和下载某些app,即使它们在中国的App Store是上线的。

但因为现在Apple对几乎所有到iTunes的服务器的流量启用了https,GFW没有办法选择性封锁特定的内容。对上述相同链接的测试,只把协议改为https,表明其没有受到GFW封锁。这个变化提供了一个中国的商业平台(中国App Store采用人民币付款),并且此平台不受政府任意的审查。比如opendoor,一个专业的翻墙软件在中国App Store 上架,并且用户愿意支付来去除应用内广告。其他的任何中国商业平台,比如淘宝都积极的进行审查,在那些平台光明正大的出售翻墙软件是不可能的。

因此,政府也注意到了这个审查漏洞,从而想推出新政策封堵这个漏洞的可能性非常大。

Bing Bests Baidu Censorship

Abstract

Independent research from Xia Chu has shown that, in addition to non-China content, Bing censors a vast amount of content that is hosted inside China and which is not censored by China-based internet companies like Baidu. After communicating our issues with Microsoft, Bing removed certain censorship rules (kudos to Bing), but much work remains to be done.

We recently called for Microsoft to release its transparency report for Bing (as have others - full disclosure, Rebecca sits on our advisory board).  Microsoft has yet to respond to this request. But Xia’s independent research of Bing’s China censorship policy could be regarded as a de facto transparency report for the search engine.

In this thorough study, the results of which we have verified, Xia examined Bing's SERP (search engine results page) for over 30,000 sensitive and nonsensitive query terms, and launched these queries from both inside and outside of China. Comparing and examining these results, plus querying with special search operators, reveals unprecedented detail on Bing's China filtering practices.

The main findings from Xia’s research include:

  • Bing has a list of “forbidden” terms where no results are shown. 139 such terms have been identified.

  • Bing has a blacklist of websites that it never shows to China users. 329 such websites are identified. (5 have been lifted after our communication with Microsoft.)

Setting Bing's Broken Record Straight

We can also now trace complicit Bing Chinese censorship back to 2009 as highlighted by Nicholas Kristof. It looks like Microsoft has indeed changed its censorship mechanism after our research made headlines this week. But Bing is still seriously flawed on two fronts: its algorithm favors pro-Chinese government websites by default on all search terms in simplified Chinese and their front end mistakenly delivers explicit censorship of search results on some search terms for users from all over the world.

No error here: Microsoft deploying Chinese censorship on global scale

Microsoft says: “The results themselves are and were unaltered outside of China”. This is simply not true.
