Tehran, YJC. Secretary of the Supreme National Cyberspace Council Mohammad Hassan Entezari said that the council is going to overhaul the country’s internet censorship system.

Speaking at the sidelines of the 15th international telecommunication exhibition (Iran Telecom 2014) he said that the cyberspace council is to conduct a session in the near future in which it will pass 30 nation-wide plans on cyberspace.

The plans will then be referred to the president for approval, he maintained.

Entezari stated "One of the plans is the surveillance system for the national information network which will be issued to the Communication Ministry in the near future.”

Pointing out that the national plan concerns issues such as the production of content, appointment of regulations, and watching over security in the cyberspace, he said that the plans will aim the development of the cyberspace content.

Also providing comments on the smart censorship policies which were launched by the council a week earlier he said a filtering software has been designed which, instead of blocking an entire website, filters undesired parts as decided by the administrator.
