The first two weeks of working on my GSoC project, which has been
dubbed "EvilGenius", are nearly over. and I just wanted to share a bit
of the experience I made during that time.
EvilGenius is a tool that - much like Descartes' idea of an "evil
genius", it "presents a complete illusion of an external world,
including other minds, to Descartes' senses, where in fact there is no
such external world in existence." (Source: Wikipedia), it distorts
the guests' view of the real internet, in short, it creates a virtual
environment that simulates censorship in order to verify OONI's
So, after getting started with vagrant, the virtualization abstraction
layer used for my project, i started simulating a virtual netwotrk and
configuring the hosts to act as if they were connected to each other
and the rest of the internet through a router that is part of the
the "precise32" box is used as base image for all nodes, and I created
scripts that configure the network and packed it up in a nice vagrantfile.
Then I began deploying ooniprobe and oonibackend and executed the
first successful tests.
Next week, I will begin working on censoring environments.
Have a nice weekend everyone!
