I’ve been trying to find recent and technical information about the great firewall of china. Does anyone know where this discussion is happening, or have any interesting links or papers to share about it?

Here’s some sources I’ve found in the meantime:

Note that this is not a question of finding ways to bypass the firewall; this is arguably a solved problem as in my experience most chinese have VPNs. If you’re interested in self-hosting interested check out shadowsocks, or check out greatfire’s list. I’ve heard good things about VyprVPN and ExpressVPN.

    I don’t have an answer for you, but it’s probably intentionally tough to find public up to date information about it. After all, if China knows exactly what people know, it knows what to change. And if sizable businesses are built to overcome the firewall, they can’t risk publicizing their knowledge/techniques and having the rug swept out from under their entire business by the Chinese government.

        Thank you so much! This video and the sources in it is exactly what I need to start understanding this.
