fteproxy provides transport-layer protection to resist keyword filtering, censorship and discrimantory routing policies. Its job is to relay datastreams, such as web browsing traffic, by encoding the stream into messages that satisfy a user-specified regular expression.

fteproxy is powered by Format-Transforming Encryption [1] and was presented at CCS 2013.
