Description : Pluggable transport to circumvent IP address blocking via public services
Meek is a tool to circumvent censorship by relaying traffic through a
third-party server that is hard to block, for example a CDN. It uses a trick
called "domain fronting" to talk to a Tor relay-like service while appearing
to talk to another domain. The traffic itself is HTTPS, aiming to look like a
typical encrypted web session.
This is similar in many respects to flashproxy-client/pt-websocket.
I will be maintaining this as part of the Debian Go Packaging Team.
