Riddle me this /g/....The CIA owns 90% of all tor exit nodes, yet you still suggest people should use it. The network itself is basically a honeypot at this point, when will you tards wake up and stop using this glowshit?
you have nothing to hide right ? :)
>pic related: me
>>83829341no duh but if you play their game and dont do anything overly illegal and dont target them they wont care (hopefully)
>>83829341I know this so I always type into the address bar first .."Mr.CIA , this is Dr.Pavel" for which the first search result is "You don't get to bring friends" and then its A.OK to browse.
I even donated to TOR oncethey made web scraping easier for me
so? just dont use same ip thats from your country. there is tor ip refresh button for a reason. set ipleak.net as your homepage
>>83829341Nice FUD glowie, the CIA doesn't own shit. I knew people who operared for years on skinroad and only got caught cause they met up irl.
>>83829452>Dr. Pavel I am MIA
>>83829341>The CIA owns 90% of all tor exit nodes
>>83830004He didn't browse so good
>>83829341You don't know how Tor works.The design of the Tor network as a whole is effectively to prevent this from having consequences.Assume that 100%, not just 90%, of Tor exit nodes glow. Assuming that the protocol works as intended and they aren't exploiting some kind of unknown vulnerability, all the exit nodes can see is:>outgoing traffic (which can still be hidden from them with any form of E2E encryption,which you should always use anyway>what middle node the connection came fromAs long as you do not send unencrypted information identifying you, even they won't be able to identify anything about you personally, at least according to this particular threat model.If assume the possibility of global monitoring, then Tor won't be enough to protect you. This is a well known limitation of the Tor protocol that even the designers themselves fully acknowledge and openly explain on their website.Same for the fact that Tor was funded by the U.S. government. Yes, it's true. so what? It's not some kind of horrible secret. This is well documented and again, fully acknowledged by the developers themselves.Just because something was made by glowies doesn't mean it can't be useful to you personally. SELinux, for instance, was literally made by the NSA, and yet it's very good for defining security policies on the Linux kernel.
>>83830128Who wants to try next? Tell me about Google! Why do they index the web?
>>83829341so run them yourself and helpi run 3
>>83830175>sees a 25GB porn torrent>That's a big file>for u (torrent)
>>83829341>The CIA owns 90% of all tor exit nodesProof?>The network itself is basically a honeypot at this pointProof?
>>83829341I use TOR to download shit so fucking legal you could go in a cinema and watch it or download it for free via tor on the internet.If glowies got a problem they can bring some popcorn, in exchange i can offer them a protein rich room-temperature refreshment.
>>83829341i2p is more resisten to this sybil attack, but it's crippled by cgnatif you're behind nat your speed will be 20KB/s
>>83830428>cgnatQRD on what this is?I don't currently know if I'm behind one or not.
>>83829341Simple. I don't use Tor to hide my identity from the CIA. Frankly, nothing can, and if you know otherwise then there's no way you're lurking on this wannabe board. https://www.usenix.org/system/files/1401_08-12_mickens.pdf
>>83829399this. the cia doesn't give a shit what illegal stuff /g/ does. they just want to topple governments. you're not important enough for them to care about you
>>83831032worked at cia. this is the truth
>>83830138For the first threat model, we could use a simple CIA proxy. Since we use HTTPS, it would not be a problem.When 100% of nodes are run by CIA, then it is effectively global monitoring.
>>83830678it's a commercial NATcg is for carrier grade
>>83829341so many maho posters recently...
Fuck off glownigger. If you don't want to use it, don't fucking use it. Stop spreading bullshit and go the fuck back to whatever hole you crawled out of. Matter of fact, I'm about to go on a darknet imageboard right now just to get away from this fucking nauseating stupidity.
>>83830678That's when your isp gives clients lan range IPs and has one shared external IP so you use PPPoE or similar to connect to internet.
>>83830678if you're behind a NAT then your torrent will show firewalled ports no matter if you forward on your router
Since I don't plan on buying drugs, I pretty much only use Tor to visit onionweb imageboards occasionally and witness schizos in their natural habitat.It's much more useful to access firewalled resources.
>>83829341The beauty of tor (as I understand it) is that 100% of the exit nodes could be owned by the Cia and you are still safe. Do I need to be redpilled on this? And what is the alternative?
>>83831056100% tor exit notes != 100% of tor nodesThere are orders of magnitude more middle relay tor nodes than exits nodes
Works for me. I only use it to buy weed
>>83829341prob a lot but not all. i run one, and i know a few vpn services do, among other privacy groups. they can't all be owned by 3 letter groups.
>>83829341The cia doesn't give a shit about your drug habit or illegal ukrainian hrt suppliers.
>>83830678afaik residential isp plans are behind cgnat
my mercenary has hacked CIA and cyber raped their tooty hole and now i use CIA's backend infrastructure as my personal proxy to hide my traffic from Mossad.i can confirm that CIA is not secretly running 80% or whatever number of Tor exit nodes are needed to identify all Tor users, because if they were, i would have come across it in my illegal exploration of CIA's classified computer systems.
>>83829341If that's true it's because they need a way to phone home while committing crimes in other countries.
