Technology from the USA was used in Belarus to block websites

The Belarusian authorities have used Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology to block access to thousands of sites on the Internet, technicians said August 28 in a Bloomberg commentary.





According to experts, the development of the American company Sandvine Inc., which is designed to filter network traffic, was used to block access during the riots after the presidential elections in Belarus. Thousands of sites have been blocked, including popular social media and messaging services.

In 2018, the Russian company Jet Infosystems sold American technology to the Belarusian National Traffic Exchange Center. In Belarus, they said that technical innovation is necessary to prevent computer attacks.

The agency stressed that the Russian firm declined to comment. At the same time, the companies from the USA stated that they require their partners to commit themselves not to use the obtained technologies to infringe on human rights.
