Psiphon FAQ

We’ve been fortunate to have a lot of advance press coverage of our Psiphon tool, which of course can be a double-edged sword. Journalists don’t always have an opportunity to get into the nitty gritty details and we’ve been fielding a lot of questions from interested observers. coders, well-wishers, and … well… not-so-well-wishers.

We have therefore put together a Psiphon FAQ that can be accessed here. Hopefully this will help answer some of those questions and concerns.

"Cracks in the Wall" Forbes Magazine/Psiphon/Citizen Lab

There is an interesting article in the recent issue of Forbes Magazine that talks about varioius circumvention strategies with respect to the Chinese firewall, including a brief mention of the Citizen Lab’s Psiphon circumvention software. It is nice to see Psiphon getting all of this attention before it is even done. We have a working concept and piece of software in rough form, but we still have a lot of work to do, work that we are presently intensifying greatly. We need volunteers with coding skills and and interest in the work. If you are interested and able, send your resume and cover letter to info at
