EU to bring in great firewall

Written by Nick Farell


We love censorship
There are fears that the EU is about to bring in a Chinese style censorship system.

A great firewall of Europe will control citizens’ access to blogs, news websites and social networking services. The idea has come out of the Council of the European Union’s Law Enforcement Work Party (LEWP), a forum for cooperation on issues such as counter terrorism, customs and fraud. Its idea is to create a single secure European cyberspace.

The secure European cyberspace would have a "virtual Schengen border", it adds, referring to the treaty that allows freedom of movement within the EU but imposes controls on entry to the bloc. There would also be “virtual access points" whereby “the Internet Service Providers would block illicit contents on the basis of the EU ‘black-list’”, the proposal says.

The closed meeting was held in February, but the minutes have only gained attention this week after being leaked online. Of course everyone thinks the scheme is daft, but since everyone is on holiday, no one can be crucified by the media for being such idiots.

Over my dead body, there is already tons of crap that causing issues, outages and increase of response time, adding additional point of failure is just plain stupid. Not even mentioning how many computer resources it would take.

Waste of time and money.
They will do all this and end up with higher latency. And control nothing.
People will simply go around it buy using proxy's or other means.

Wonder what this refers as most of the countries are already under secret proxies by the government ?

I mean it wouldn't take exactly an master mind to dump a clone between proxy to track anyone when needed even now. Using dns/proxy is another deal of course, but that again would be risking the stuff to 3rd unknown party. blacklist/ip filter, lol, that is so idiot plan goodbye pig farm webpages ;P
