Roger Dingledine, Project Leader of the Tor project, asks in this talk: what do the Department of Defense and the Electronic Frontier Foundation have in common? They have both funded the development of Tor (torproject.org), a free-software anonymizing network that helps people around the world use the Internet in safety. Tor's 1800 volunteer servers carry traffic for perhaps half a million concurrent users including ordinary citizens who want protection from identity theft and prying corporations, corporations who want to look at a competitor's website in private, bloggers and activists around the world, and soldiers and aid workers in the Middle East who need to contact their home servers without fear of physical harm. In this talk, Dingledine gives an overview of the Tor architecture, and talks about who uses it and why, and what security it provides. Then he opens up for discussion about open research questions, wider social implications, and other topics the audience wants to consider.
