An anonymous Internet
communication system based on a distributed
network. Tor is a toolset for a wide range of organizations and people that want to improve their safety and security on the Internet. Using Tor can help you remain anonymous while Web browsing, instant messaging
, using IRC, SSH, or other applications which use the TCP
protocol. The Tor network
takes a random pathway through several servers that cover your tracks so no observer at any single point can tell where the data came from or where it’s going. Tor also provides a platform
on which software developers can build new applications with built-in anonymity, safety and privacy features.
Tor was developed is supported by the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
