The Tor network is comprised of thousands of volunteer-run relays around the world, and millions of people rely on it for privacy and freedom online everyday. To monitor the Tor network's performance, detect attacks on it, and better distribute load across the network, we employ what we call Tor bandwidth scanners.
The Tor Project has learned that there may be an attempt to incapacitate our network in the next few days through the seizure of specialized servers in the network called directory authorities.
Today is the 10th anniversary of collecting Tor directory data!
Tor 0.2.2.23-alpha lets relays record their bandwidth history so when
they restart they don't lose their bandwidth capacity estimate. This
Tor 0.2.1.27 makes relays work with OpenSSL 0.9.8p and 1.0.0.b --yet another OpenSSL security patch broke its compatibility with Tor.
Tor 0.2.2.14-alpha greatly improves client-side handling of circuit build
timeouts, which are used to estimate speed and improve performance. We
Earlier this year, we started looking for a new hosting location for a directory authority outside th
On October 11, we released Tor 0.2.2.5-alpha.
