In 2003, the United States began providing a free proxy server to Iranian citizens through its IBB service Voice of America with Internet privacy company Anonymizer, Inc.
The proxy website changes whenever the Iranian government blocks it.
Their task will be to define policy and co-ordinate decisions regarding the Internet.
This is thought to be the country’s authorities strongest attempt at controlling the Internet so far.
At the beginning of March 2012, Iran began implementing an internal Intranet.
This effort is partially in response to Western actions to exploit its Internet connectivity such as the Stuxnet cyberattack which have fueled suspicions of foreign technologies.
Iran has been accused by its critics of censoring more Internet sites than any other nation except China.
