Internet ID Card System in Tibet for Online Surveillance

Internet Censorship "A new Internet surveillance system was instituted in Lhasa in 2003 requiring residents to use an individual registration number and an associated password in order to access the Internet via Internet Explorer or other portals or to send and receive email at public cyber cafes. This is the latest known information monitoring step for computer users that the Chinese government has taken in the Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR) and is unique because it is imposed on the individual users and not imbedded in the computer system.

The new system of registration for Internet use in Lhasa is a step beyond dense filtering systems to screen and block items containing politically sensitive terms as it allows authorities to easily track anything that is viewed on the computer screen and place an individual's name with a visited website."
