DEFCON Toronto, GTALUG, and USENIX: Tor is Coming to Canada This Month

When people talk about Tor, they almost always think of the Tor daemon or Tor Browser. While this was true earlier, the Tor ecosystem has now expanded and includes a diverse set of applications helping you protect your privacy online or to circumvent Internet censorship.

Learn About the Tor Ecosystem in Toronto

Sukhbir Singh is a software developer in the applications and community team and has been with us since 2012. At two talks this month in Toronto, Sukhbir will introduce Tor and then walk through the Tor ecosystem: all of the applications build around it. These talks are appropriate for Tor beginners and advanced users.

For the academics, there will be two research projects presented at the 26th USENIX Security Symposium Wednesday, August 16th. The USENIX Security Symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others interested in the latest advances in the security and privacy of computer systems and networks.
