Tor server


when

The political situation in the Ukraine in 2014 triggert me to provide a Tor relay. The NotPetya attack in 2017 motivated me to provide a Tor public bridge. Starting in March 2022 I setup much more of them.

why

Freedom needs free press.
Free press needs whistle-blowing.
Whistle-blowing needs anonymity.
Anonymity is provided by Tor.

But my main motivation is based by reading the Stasi observation files about my parents - few hundred pages. My spy file contains just 9 (mostly blackened) pages. I should have been done better in the time of the former GDR.

status

The status of my Tor relays/bridges is provided by torproject and nusenu.

tools

I do maintain here a solution to prevent DDoS attacks against a Tor relay (at network leyer). One or two helper scripts for a Tor relay can be found there too.
To deploy and maintain Tor bridges I do use this Ansible role.
