Det blir eit lite møte i dag med Roger Dingledine fra TOR-Prosjektet på 
HIO i Vika 18:30.

Det er eit noko kort varsel men vi håper folk finner veien for å høyre 
litt om TOR,

What do the United States Department of Defense and the Electronic
Frontier Foundation have in common? They have both funded the
development of Tor (, a free-software onion routing network
that helps people around the world use the Internet safely.

The public Tor network has 150 servers on five continents, and averages
over 40Mbit/s of traffic. Our users include ordinary citizens who want
protection from identity theft and prying corporations, corporations
who want to look at a competitor's website in private, and aid workers
in the Middle East who need to contact their home servers without fear
of physical harm.

I'll give an overview of the Tor architecture, and talk about why you'd
want to use it, what security it provides, and how user applications
interface to it. I'll show a working Tor network, and invite the
audience to connect to it and use it.

Roger Dingledine is a security and privacy researcher. While at
MIT he developed Free Haven, one of the early peer-to-peer systems
that emphasized resource management while retaining anonymity for its
users. Currently he consults for the Electronic Frontier Foundation and
the U.S. Navy to design and develop systems for anonymity and traffic
analysis resistance. Recent work includes anonymous publishing and
communication systems, traffic analysis resistance, censorship
resistance, attack resistance for decentralized networks, and reputation.
