Information Controls Lab (ICLab) is a project focused on collecting and analyzing information controls data on the Internet at a global scale.

At ICLab, we regularly run information controls experiments on a large number of vantage points spread all over the world. Some of these vantage points are Raspberry Pis running the Centinel software, while others are VPN clients and Virtual Private Servers (VPS). These experiments include a standard set of tests designed to detect and analyze web content blocking, the results of which are processed by our data management server and can be explored using the web application available here.
