yey i can connect to oftc with tor again!
torQUES
finally I moved my middle relay server to an Intel® Xeon® machine managed through a ssh-2 connection
[notice] Tor v0.2.7.3-rc (git-9a4cac74fd2f4bb3) running on Linux with Libevent 2.0.22-stable, OpenSSL 1.0.2d and Zlib 1.2.8.
hoe many cores can be actually set in torrc?
SnowyNight
Hello. I readed https://www.blackhat.com/presentations/bh-dc-09/Fu/BlackHat-DC-09-Fu-Break-Tors-Anonymity-slides.pdf and https://blog.torproject.org/blog/one-cell-enough from 2009. How many Tor routers in circuit must be bad to determine my ip address and hidden server that I am connecting? How many when I am connecting to server outside the Tor network? Who are choose middle relay? My Tor client or entry node?
cacahuatl
SnowyNight
Thank You very much cacahuatl . :)
cacahuatl
And the client chooses all the relays used in a circuit

sry, made a typo
SnowyNight
Thank You very much cacahuatl . :)

question about isolated streams.
If I use torbirdy with the TBB, is it using an isolated stream? (am I browsing with a different IP?) I setup torbirdy with my real name email address (for the general benefits it provides.)

Why am I not able to access chat through tor?
I get "ERROR: Anonymous TOR usage is unavailable"

I triggered signal RELOAD with tor-arm and I get 5 warns:
Oct 15 05:27:35.000 [warn] Can't return context-sensitive 'HiddenService...' on its own
is missing a "/" in torrc?
yes
an interesting thing: I compiled a static tor on a Linux x86 platform and now I run the compiled app on a Linux amd64 platform - is there any problem with it or tor can run both x86 and amd64?
scrambler
hi ppl
what encrypted phone call app for android should i use?
evilolive
signal
scrambler
red phone is a server based service, i thought the server was mostly a keyserver
and the thing was mostly p2p
evilolive, signal?
evilolive
textsecure and redphone have been merged into signal i believe
ios version as well
scrambler
but signal is for ios
i need android
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Signal_%28software%29
evilolive
yes there is android version
scrambler
evilolive, but what is the server role in the communication?
evilolive
? what do you mean? the encryption is client side server doesn't see anything if that's what you mean
it's done right it's from moxie and has been well reviewed
scrambler
evilolive, no there is no android app called signal
https://play.google.com/store/search?q=signal%20whisper%20systems&c=apps
its even text secure or redphone
what is the main difference of SMSSecure and TextSecure? https://github.com/SMSSecure/SMSSecure

hello all is this server part of tor? 217.79.178.60
i tried https://globe.torproject.org/#/search/query=217.79.178.60
came back no data available
wtf_fcntl
Are there any plans yet for having torsocks recognize setcap binaries like it does setuid binaries?
wowaname
thats fun
PlasmaStar
oh pal
Sweet
hehe
Guest5212
god damn pancakes enabling nick protection
         

wtf_fcntl
What happened, pancakes took over wowaname's nick?
Guest5212
this is old news
wtf_fcntl
I do not spend much time on IRC, I wouldn't know.
Guest5212
idk, news about the great almighty wowaname travels fast on the oftc grapevine
everyone seems to have wet dreams about me here
wtf_fcntl
So everyone here's gay?
Guest5212
i guess
wtf_fcntl
gay
Guest5212
everyones already gay

hi is it possible to tell tor not to buyild any general purpose circuitd and only build circuits when requested without canibalizing
suelin
if you use Tor to connect to a remote desktop, and then use Tor from that remote desktop to connect to a server, what are the Tor via Tor considerations?
dusty
hello
I'm just researching about networking
I want to set up a container on gnu/linux for which all its traffic is routed through tor
so I'm just reading up on background stuff now but I think this is doable with nft, is that right?
and are there any resources you'd recommend on this
SnowyNight
dusty : Check out TAILS LiveDVD https://tails.boum.org/
dusty : https://tails.boum.org/about/index.en.html "all software is configured to connect to the Internet through Tor" and "if an application tries to connect to the Internet directly, the connection is automatically blocked for security."
cacahuatl
If by "nft" you mean iptables/packet filtering, then yes but caveat emptor.
using tails will do this for you
dusty
alright thanks a lot
it sounsd like im as usual trying to do everything the hard way
so I'll try this tails out first
suelin
if you run it in a VM consider loading it from a snapshot so you keep the same entry guards between sessions, if that is what you want
cacahuatl
there is a wikipage on the iptables method using transparent proxying but it's less than ideal.
srg
Is it normal for a tor relay to be taking up 80% of my CPU?
suelin
I'm not certain but Tor does a lot of encryption operations and those are resource intensive
cacahuatl
Depends on how much traffic you're shifting and how much CPU you have in the first place.
srg
hm, ok. It's about 9-10 MB/sec
on a VPS
toralf
srg: 5MB/sec takes here 13% of 1 of 8 threats of a real i7-3770 CPU
srg: AES support is in the kernel and used from the hardware of the CPU ofc
dusty
any idea why tails uses ferm rather than nft?
cacahuatl
ferm just configures iptables
dusty
yeah
i wonder why you'd pull in a whole dep for that? when you could just do it with nft
oh well i guess its just personal perference
cacahuatl
It makes the config easier to read and write
troulouliou_div2
hi is it posible for the average foo to know the HS reached by a user in tor2webmode ?
or it still require to be in control of the RV point
cacahuatl
I believe it adds an http header
so yes

phillw
is tor 0.2.4.27-1bu still a current release?
qwk
why is "change details that distinguish you from other Tor Browser users" set by default in TBB?
Less fingerprints is better imo
