The Citizen Lab is an interdisciplinary laboratory based at the Munk School of Global Affairs,at the University of Toronto, Canada focusing on advanced research and development at the intersection of digital media, global security, and human rights. In 2010, Citizen Lab (and its partner the SecDev Group) uncovered 1,294 computers in 103 countries (embassies, government agencies etc. including to the desktop of the Dalai Lama) that had been compromised by a virus originating out of servers in China. The Citizen Lab developed the psiphon censorship circumvention software, and continues to provide "red team" research, threat analysis, and support for open source development for Psiphon Inc through the Psi-Lab project.
