This post explores how Tor onion services can be integrated into existing web services, making them more secure. This integration will use the “publish / subscribe” pattern over Tor to trigger re-builds of the txtorcon documentation (which is hosted on an onion service). We will use Tor to transport the published messages so the network-location of the machine hosting the onion service remains hidden. We will use a messaging system called “Web Application Messaging Protocol” or WAMP.
carml is a command-line, pipe-friendly tool for exploring and controlling a running Tor daemon.
During the month of December, we're highlighting other organizations and projects that rely on Tor, build on Tor, or are accomplishing their missions better because Tor exists.
