Flash Proxies

Censorship is an everyday reality for many of the world’s Internet users. Users turn to circumvention systems like Tor; censors respond by blacklisting the addresses of those systems. This talk will cover the use of “flash proxies” to evade such blacklisting. Flash proxies—which despite the name, do not use Adobe Flash—are miniature proxies implemented in JavaScript running in web browsers. Browsers can become temporary circumvention proxies just by viewing a web page, and stop being a proxy just by closing a tab. Browsers provide a large, diverse pool of IP addresses, which change too quickly to be effectively blocked by blacklisting.
