Tor for Windows 4.0

O. James Samson - October 22, 2014

Improving safety and security on the internet is not negotiable if you want to your organization to be very successful; and that is why you need Tor.

What is Tor?

Tor is a toolset for organizations and people that want to improve their safety and security on the Internet. Using Tor can help you anonymize Web browsing and publishing, instant messaging, IRC, SSH, and other applications that use the TCP protocol. Tor also provides a platform on which software developers can build new applications with built-in anonymity, safety, and privacy features.

Communications are bounced around a distributed network of servers, called onion routers. Instead of taking a direct route from source to destination, data packets on the Tor network take a random pathway through several servers that cover your tracks so no observer at any single point can tell where the data came from or where it’s going.

When this happens, it becomes difficult for recipients, observers, and even the onion routers themselves to figure out who and where you are. Tor’s goal is to provide Internet users with protection against “traffic analysis,” a form of network surveillance that threatens personal anonymity and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security.

Does it have a downside?

It takes a little longer for a page to load.
