Announcing Arti, a pure-Rust Tor implementation

by nickm | July 8, 2021

Greetings!

Today I'm happy to announce a new era in Tor implementation.

Over the past year or so, we've been working on "Arti", a project to rewrite Tor in Rust. Thanks to funding from Zcash Open Major Grants (ZOMG), we can finally put the Arti project up in our priorities list, and devote more time to it.

Below I'll talk about why we're doing this project, what it means for Tor users and operators, where it's going in the future, and how people can help.
