The Mind Tech Podcast is your weekly dose of tech, privacy, security and conspiracy.
Each week we'll talk about the very latest tech news and the continued threats to internet freedom.
Mind Tech News:
From wikipedia: “Tor (originally short for The Onion Router) is free software for enabling online anonymity. Tor directs Internet traffic through a free, worldwide volunteer network consisting of more than three thousand relays to conceal a user's location or usage from anyone conducting network surveillance or traffic analysis.”
Easiest way to get it running is with the Tor Browser Bundle. In Windows, Mac, and Linux just download the zip file, extract the folder inside it and run the binary. It takes about 20 seconds to connect to the Tor network and then it opens a browser.
Currently uses Firefox 17 with some extensions (Https-everywhere and Noscript) Pretty slow (about 200 KB/s max).
Exit nodes can see your traffic. Https helps prevent this to some extent.
