Skype is officially illegal in Ethiopia

Skype is officially illegal in Ethiopia

Ethiopia’s state owned Ethio-Telecom, which is the only ISP in the country has implemented Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) in order to block access to Tor proxy network. The local authorities do their best in order to prevent users from browsing the Internet anonymously.

DPI is often used by countries like Iran and China to intercept citizens’ online browsing. The official reason or the DPI use is usually blocking access to child porn or terrorist resources. But truth is that once DPI is ready for use, it is abused by state regulators to fight the political, religious or economical enemies.

According to reporters without borders, installation of DPI and blocking access to Tor is just a first step towards a vast filtering system that will eventually allow state-agents to intercept e-mail, social network, IM, IRC and VoIP messages.

Since 24 May use of VoIP hardware and software is considered to be a crime. Anyone violating the new law can be sentenced up to 15 years in prison. According to the officials, the VoIP use threatens national security because it denies country telephone communication monopoly.

The new legislation also gives local communications and information technology ministry the power to issue and supervise licenses to all private companies that import equipment used for the communication of information.

“This new law and the possibility that a Deep Packet Inspection system has been installed mark a turning point in the Ethiopian government’s control of the Internet. We fear that DPI will be misused for surveillance purposes by a government that already subjects the political opposition and privately-owned media to a great deal of harassment” Ц reporters without borders said.
