"TOR onion network" and "Freenet "

Postby PlasticAnnArbor » Wed Jun 26, 2013 4:53 am

with the USA and UK and the rest of the EU ( Australia and the Dutch NOT spying )
there has been a growing interest in TOR and Freenet
-- tor --
https://www.torproject.org/
( recommend the "tor bundle" https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en )

-- freenet ---
https://freenetproject.org/

I my self do not need help
But if others need help , i have used the onion router for many years and freenet ( and frost) for almost as long

feel free to ask for help .

It is good but it still has vulnerabilities. Would it not be just as safe and easy to constantly change your IP address instead of using an external service?

The attack targeted six exit nodes, lasted for 23 days, and revealed a total of 10,000 IP addresses of active Tor users. This study is particularly significant because it is the first documented attack designed to target P2P file sharing applications on Tor.

no
if you only change your ip , then traceroute and traceroute6 and "whois" can VERY easily find you ( and the logs for THIS site )
and asking the isp who the IP address belongs to is easy

tor
makes it mostly impossible to track a user
-- mostly --

the way the network works is that every packet has a "to:" and "from:" in the header , so IT can find it's way through the net

this makes it VERY easy to track

tor bounces it around in a network that dose NOT keep track of the "to:" and "from: "
this makes it very hard to track

That is not exactly true. If you got rid of the address entirely, you would not be able to communicate with the host through the network and the host would not be able to send responses back to you. The "to" and "from" must exist, no matter how your may mask the IP address the "to" and "from" still must exist at the physical layer. Unlike the IP address, the address at the physical layer can not be changed so easily. Otherwise, there would be no way of ensuring that the message got sent to the right place.

Something that recently came up on Tor.   (link)

The Tor Project wrote in a blog post yesterday that its clients, relays, and hidden services were all vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug. Ostensibly, anyone that had been using Tor—be it to buy drugs on the black market or protect themselves from oppressive governments or anything in between—may have had their activity monitored and encryption keys stolen.

It looks like the Tor network will shrink in size as a result of the Heartbleed flaw. Patches to fix bad servers just do not go in over night. So 380 bad servers will need to be taken over line.   (link)
