NAME

       ooniprobe - an internet censorship measurement tool

SYNOPSIS

       ooniprobe [options] ([test name] | [path to nettest.py])

DESCRIPTION

       ooniprobe,  is  a  tool  for  performing  internet censorship measurements. Our goal is to
       achieve a common data format and set of methodologies for  conducting  censorship  related
       research.

OPTIONS

       -h, --help
              Display help and exit.

       -n, --no-collector
              Disable writing to collector

       -N, --no-njson
              Disable writing to disk

       -g, --no-geoip
              Disable geoip lookup on start.  Warning: By using this option the IP address of the
              user executing ooniprobe is not excluded from the report.

       -s, --list
              List the currently installed ooniprobe nettests

       -v, --verbose
              Show more verbose information

       -w, --web-ui
              Start the web UI

       -z, --initialize
              Initialize ooniprobe to begin running it

       -o,--reportfile PATH_TO_FILE
              Specify the report file name to write to.

       -i,--testdeck PATH_TO_DECK
              Specify as input a test deck: a yaml file containing the tests  to  run  and  their
              arguments.

       -c,--collector COLLECTOR_ADDRESS
              Specify  the  address  of the collector for test results. In most cases a user will
              prefer to specify a bouncer over this.

       -b,--bouncer BOUNCER_ADDRESS
              Specify the bouncer used to obtain the address of the collector and test helpers.

       -l,--logfile PATH_TO_LOGFILE
              Write to this logs to this filename.

       -O,--pcapfile PATH_TO_PCAPFILE
              Write a PCAP of the ooniprobe session to this filename.

       -f,--configfile PATH_TO_CONFIG
              Specify a path to the ooniprobe configuration file.

       -d, --datadir
              Specify a path to the ooniprobe data directory.

       -a, –annotations key:value[,key2:value2]
              Annotate the report with a key:value[, key:value] format.

       -P, –preferred-backend onion|https|cloudfront
              Set the preferred backend to use when submitting results and/or communicating  with
              test helpers. Can be either onion, https or cloudfront

       --version
              Display the ooniprobe version and exit.

OONIPROBE

   Read this before running ooniprobe!
       Running   ooniprobe  is  a  potentially  risky  activity.  This  greatly  depends  on  the
       jurisdiction in which you are in and  which  test  you  are  running.  It  is  technically
       possible  for a person observing your internet connection to be aware of the fact that you
       are running ooniprobe. This means that if running network measurement tests  is  something
       considered to be illegal in your country then you could be spotted.

       Furthermore,  ooniprobe  takes  no  precautions to protect the install target machine from
       forensics analysis.  If the fact that you have installed or used ooni probe is a liability
       for you, please be aware of this risk.

   What is this?
       ooniprobe  is  the  command  line  tool  that  volunteers  and  researches  interested  in
       contributing data to the project should be running.

       If you are interested in  using  ooniprobe  from  a  graphical  user  interface  refer  to
       ooniprobe-agent and see how to run that.

       ooniprobe  allows  the  user  to select what test should be run and what backend should be
       used for storing the test report and/or assisting them in the running of the test.

       ooniprobe tests  are  divided  into  two  categories:  Traffic  Manipulation  and  Content
       Blocking.

       Traffic  Manipulation  tests aim to detect the presence of some sort of tampering with the
       internet traffic between the probe and a remote test helper backend. As such they  usually
       require the selection of a oonib backend component for running the test.

       Content  Blocking  are  aimed  at enumerating the kind of content that is blocked from the
       probes network point of view. As such they usually require to have specified an input list
       for running the test.

EXAMPLES

       Run the web_connectivity test on http://torproject.org:
          ooniprobe web_connectivity --url http://torproject.org/

       Run the http_invalid_request_line test to detect middleboxes:
          ooniprobe http_invalid_request_line

       Run the http_header_field_manipulation test to detect middleboxes:
          ooniprobe http_header_field_manipulation

       List all the available tests:
          ooniprobe -s

       Start the web user interface:
          ooniprobe -w
