Internet Filtering in Tunisia in 2005

The OpenNet Initiative is proud to announce the release of Internet Filtering in Tunisia in 2005, a country study that documents Tunisia’s attempts to control Internet information, including the filtering of political opposition Web sites, human rights groups, and sites that provide access to privacy-enhancing technologies. ONI research reveals that Tunisia’s government Internet agency, ATI, uses SmartFilter — filtering software produced by Secure Computing, a US-based company — as the basis of its filtering regime. The state falsifies the information provided to users who try to reach filtered sites; the error page received claims the site is not accessible for technical reasons.
