Tor server


when

The political situation in the Ukraine in 2014 triggert me to provide a Tor relay. The NotPetya attack in 2017 to provide a Tor bridge and since February 2022 I increased the number of bridges significantly.

why

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

But my motivation is based too at the reading of the Stasi observation files about my parents - few hundred pages. My spy file has 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 and bridges is provided both by torproject and by nusenu.

helper tools

I do maintain here a solution to prevent DDoS attacks agains a Tor relay. Few more more helper scripts for a Tor relay can be found there too. To deploy and maintain Tor bridges I wrote this Ansible role.
