It shows that the Syrian authorities have installed more than 30 Blue Coat servers on their network. These servers are dedicated to intercepting communications and data circulating on the Internet.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div id="node-body" class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"> <p lang="en-US"><a href="http://surveillance.rsf.org/blue-coat/">Blue Coat</a> is a US company specializing in interception software and hardware. Their products are based on technology that analyses the content of network packets. Called <a href="http://surveillance.rsf.org/lexique/#dpi"><em>Deep Packet Inspection</em></a>, the technology is used by many Internet Service providers to regulate network traffic. But it can also be used to analyse the browsing activities of individual Internet users, including their Twitter, YouTube and Facebook activities, and the content of their emails.</p> <p lang="en-GB">Carried out by the Telecomix hactivist group, this network analysis has revealed the existence of <b>34 </b>new Blue Coat servers in Syria. Each server is identified by:</p> <ul> <li>an IP address: Nmap scan report for <b>188.160.1.189</b></li> <li>the ports on which the servers are connected, in this case <b>port 80</b>, assigned to web traffic (http)</li> <li>the server name, in this case <b>Blue Coat proxy server </b>or <b>Blue Coat PacketShaper 3500 firewall</b></li> </ul> <p lang="en-US">In 2012, Telecomix already revealed the presence <a href="http://surveillance.rsf.org/syrie/">15 Blue Coat servers on the Syrian Internet network</a>.</p> <p lang="en-GB">Its latest report shows not only that Syria continues to acquire monitoring and interception equipment – the Syrian Internet shutdown on 7 May was probably used to install the new surveillance infrastructure – but also that Western companies continue to provide authoritarian regimes with dual-use technology.</p> <p lang="en-US">On 12 March 2013, World Day Against Cyber-Censorship, Reporters Without Borders classified Blue Coat as one of the private-sector companies that are <i><a href="http://surveillance.rsf.org/category/societes-ennemis-internet/">“Enemies of the Internet</a>.”</i></p> <pre>Nmap scan report for 188.160.1.52 Host is up (0.16s latency).
