I remember reading a couple of years ago (I believe it was during the Egyptian Revolution) that hackers managed to bypass government filters by making their traffic appear as another protocol. If memory serves me right they were masking their "forbidden" content and making it appear as online video game traffic (which supposedly wasn't filtered at the ISP level).
Is there a name for this practice? Are there resources I can read about it?
I'm considering doing this as my next semester's project but I'm unable to find much resources about it on the net, probably because I don't know what it would be called.
I guess it's some form of steganography?
