== Announcements ==
== Discussion ==
What is the status of activating the snowflake-02 bridge in Orbot?
snowflake-01 is still pretty much saturated, and snowflake-02 relatively almost unused
no news yet from Orbot on status of deployment
latest Orbot release was 2023-01-13
will add to S96 agenda and discuss in 2 weeks (On March 2rd) if they are not around
forking obfs4proxy, a new name?
rdsys is using onbasca to measure bridge bandwidth
bridgestrap is reporing most bridges as non-functional
looks similar to an old issue: https://gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/anti-censorship/bridgestrap/-/issues/7
rdsys can handle the situation and will not be a big problem if is not fixed fast
== Actions ==
meskio will write a survival guide on onbasca
move the ampcache snowflake fallback forward
== Interesting links ==
continued sporadic blocking of cdn.sstatic.net in Iran
== Reading group ==
We will discuss “Detecting Tor Bridge from Sampled Traffic in Backbone Networks” on March 9
Questions to ask and goals to have:
What aspects of the paper are questionable?
Are there immediate actions we can take based on this work?
Are there long-term actions we can take based on this work?
Is there future work that we want to call out in hopes that others will pick it up?
== Updates ==
