Network transparency cuts both ways. It can be exploited to engage in surveillance of Internet service providers as well as Internet users. In order to better understand DPI use and the scope of its deployment, the project makes use of crowdsourced network monitoring data. So far, we have used data from a test known as Glasnost, which was developed by German researchers to detect blocking or throttling of BitTorrent and other peer to peer (P2P) file sharing protocols. The detailed workings of the Glasnost test are described in Dischinger, Marcon, et al (2010).
