Tor: anonymity online
« on: November 27, 2008, 15:49:41 »
I share this interesting program to help those out there who would want to rest as anonymous as possible in the Internet

Tor is a software project that helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security. Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location. Tor works with many of your existing applications, including web browsers, instant messaging clients, remote login, and other applications based on the TCP protocol.

Strangers passing in the street, by chance two separate glances meet and I am you and what I see is me...
