O3.1: Improve automatic censorship detection during bootstrapping in Tor Browser (desktop and Android).
The next evolution of improving Tor Browser’s user experience under censorship is teaching it how to detect different types of connection interference and evaluate working alternatives. The first outcome of this Objective is an automated system that detects connectivity problems and discovers an alternative route into the Tor network using other pluggable transport bridges. The second outcome of this objective is integrating Salmon (see O2.2.1) into Tor Browser. Salmon provides a framework for automatically fetching new bridges without requiring interaction from the user, for more seamless censorship circumvention.
