As a follow up to my last couple of weeks posting around Tor and the research I am doing within the Tor network, I presented at the Central Ohio ISSA Security Summit around the topic of Tor Hidden Services. The audience asked some great questions, and today I wanted to post some links for folks to explore the Tor network on their own in as safe a manner as possible.
The following is a set of links for gaining access to the Tor network and a couple of links to get people started exploring Tor Hidden Services. (Note: Be careful out there, remember, this is the ghetto of the Internet and your paranoia may vary…)
- Tor main site for reading about the Tor network
- Tor browser bundle download
- Tails – privacy focused operating system downloads
- EFF information on Tor
Once you get into the Tor network, here are a couple of hidden service URLs to get you started:
http://kpvz7ki2v5agwt35.onion – Original hidden wiki site
http://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/ – Duck Duck Go search engine
http://kbhpodhnfxl3clb4.onion – “Tor Search” search engine
As always, thanks for reading and stay safe out there!
