Iran begins blocking 30 million users from email, Web ahead of next week's parliamentary election

Wed Feb 22, 11:37 p.m. IRST: +Alex Johnson of +msnbc.com reports that Iran has begun blocking Internet services, according to Web security experts.

The Tor Network, which provides free software for anonymous use of the Internet, reported that on Feb. 9, Tehran began filtering keywords and throttling or shutting down access to sites that use a form of security called Secure Socket Layers, or SSL.

The action is reportedly blocking email and some Web access for as many as 30 million Iranians who use SSL-protected sites.

Iran, which will hold parliamentary elections on March 2, has referred to Google and other search engines as "spying tools," and it has throttled access to foreign web servers previously at politically sensitive times.
