Resource: DPI Literature Review

A new document, prepared by Christopher Parsons (picture) for the "New Transparency Project’s Cyber-Surveillance Workshop", "takes up the most prominent scholarly analyses of the technology [DPI]. Given Canada’s arguably leading role in regulating the technology, many of its regulator’s key documents and evidentiary articles are also included".

See "Literature Review of Deep Packet Inspection" - here.

"In summary, this literature review addresses some of the motives and strategies of digitally mediated surveillance actors, relationships between actors involved in DPI based surveillance, the politics of DPI, the impact of DPI on personal privacy, and how novel technical configurations promote surveillance and challenge privacy. Prior to examining the literature itself, however, I briefly discuss how DPI functions as a technology and introduce the reader to some of the technical terminology associated with it".
