The Tor protocol provides an anonymous, secure way for individuals to access the Internet. It also enables access to anonymous websites, commonly known as the dark web. Learn how Tor provides anonymous browsing capability and implements perfect forward secrecy.
- [Instructor] Tor is a software package…that provides an anonymous, secure way…for individuals to access the internet.…Tor also enables access to anonymous websites…that are commonly know as the dark web.…Tor, which stands for The Onion Router,…uses encryption and relay nodes to hide the true sources…and destinations of network communications.…Tor is widely used in the security community…and was made popular by NSA leaker, Edward Snowden,…when he used it to transfer secrets to the Washington Post…and other media outlets in 2013.…
Let's take a look at how Tor works.…Suppose that there's a user, Alice,…who wishes to visit a website, the Washington Post,…but doesn't want that website to know her identity.…She also doesn't want anyone along the way…to know who she is.…Alice opens a Tor browser on her computer…and types in the website's URL, washingtonpost.com.…Alice's Tor browser then accesses a Tor Directory Server…and loads a list of all of the Tor nodes…currently available on the internet.…
Now this is a very long list,…
