Tor Project co-founder Roger Dingledine took the stage last week at DEF CON to bust popular myths and announce upcoming features related to the anonymity network that averages 2 million users a day. From the post:
Personally I’m (still) waiting for TOR Astoria, and to see if it’s truly as bullet-proof as they claim it will be in reducing the amount of potential rogue exit nodes… the figure I saw was from 58.8% to 5.8% I believe. But considering it’s a joint effort from America & Israel I’m more than skeptical about it. It just might be nothing more than a honeypot to trap unsuspecting victims that think they’re greatly improving their anonymity.
