On friday the offer about the Internet control standard of China and other countries was approved after the ITU (International Telecommunication Union) conference in Dubai was finished. The Deep Packet Inpection (DPI) technology , that allows to read and identify any encrypted Internet traffic, for example pirate content was approved.
Some countries were against this project, there were some offers to limit ITU control over international calls and other types of communications. Germany opposed the DPI introduction, according to the representatives of this country ITU shouldn’t standardize none of the technical decisions that can lead to toughing of the Internet content control and that can be used for censorship and prevent free Internet information spreading. According to a quote from the Reuters document “ All countries must have the same aims and the same responsible for Internet control and also to provide the stability, security, continuity of the Internet existence and it’s future development”.
Otherwise, the adopted document Y-2770 is nonpublic and only the conference participants have an access to it. All the meetings were carried out behind closed doors. A part of undiscussed questions will be raised on Wednesday.
As a matter of fact Russia was going to represent international Network regulation offer that contains the idea of Internet control not only in the country but on the supranational level. However this initiatives caused a sharp critic from American Internet companies such as Google.
