But instead of showing users a blockpage indicating that the site has been blocked, they have created a blockpage that looks like the Internet Explorer browser’s default error page (in French), presumably to disguise the fact that they are blocking Web sites. A proxy-based filtering system can also be programmed such that Internet traffic passing through the filtering system is reassembled and the specific HTTP address requested is checked against a list of blocked keywords. No country that ONI tested blocked access to a Web site as a result of a keyword appearing in the body content of the page, however, there are a number of countries that block by keyword in the domain or URL path, including China, Iran, and Yemen.
