Releases: Nuclear Power Development Company of Iran (75 GB) and ArianTel (44 GB)
Two datasets from Iran, including a trove of materials from the Iranian mobile provider Ariantel with years of emails between company employees, contractors, and the Iranian government.
Today we are publishing torrents to two new releases from Iran.
Nuclear Power Production and Development Company of Iran
Over 100,000 emails from the Nuclear Power Production and Development Company of Iran, which owns the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant Operation Company and runs Iranian research and development in the nuclear fuel cycle, including uranium exploration, mining and conversion.
The company was linked to Iran's proliferation of nuclear weapons by the European Union in 2007, and by the British and Japanese governments in 2015. It was removed from the E.U. sanctions list in January 2016 as part of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
This data can be downloaded via torrent.
320,000 emails from ArianTel, an Iranian telecom company documenting Iranian surveillance systems and the SIAM system.
The Intercept wrote about these documents this week:
Part of Iran’s data clampdown may be explained through the use of a system called “SIAM,” a web program for remotely manipulating cellular connections made available to the Iranian Communications Regulatory Authority. The existence of SIAM and details of how the system works, reported here for the first time, are laid out in a series of internal documents from an Iranian cellular carrier that were obtained by The Intercept.
The article is also available in Persian.
The ArianTel data can also be downloaded via torrent.
