Advanced Web Filtering by Iranian Regime to Block Information and News Exchange

Khosravi, Iran’s communications director stated that, “According to Iran’s Computer Crimes Law, filtering has been defined.”  He continued that this unified filtering system uses what he called a “gateway.”  A special committee will designate the websites that will be filtered which consists of some members of mullahs’ parliament, judiciary and other oppressive forces.

Selling filtering and internet control devices to the Iranian regime has been prohibited by the United States as it has stated that it will sanction companies providing such technologies to Iranian regime.

Major western companies have since announced that they will no longer provide internet filtering technologies to Iranian government. 

Under these circumstances, Iran’s ability to establish and control such filtering system is questionable as this country is incapable of developing the technology on its own.
