Re: Ultimate solution
I wrote Torpark, so let me respond to your points.
1) Torpark is only for windows at the moment, it will be available for
Mac and Linux shortly.
2) Torpark is not commercial, it is totally free and open source. We
simply offer an upgrade to get higher speeds than the tor network can
3) The fact that trust isn't distributed is a positive, not a
negative, because you don't have to trust everyone with your outgoing
plaintext traffic. We have independent security auditors make sure our
admins are not tracking anyone or doing anything malicious. However,
we are using a distributed trust internally, so if anyone comes asking
for customer info, they won't get them without NSA letters to all our
associates in all our jurisdictions. And naurally, free users of
torpark we don't have any records of anyway.
4) The online tutorial is only a video for streaming. Perhaps you
would prefer to download the 25mb file directly? Or perhaps you know
of a way to stream video without using scripting? I'll be happy to
5) Offshore from the USA, UK, etc. We have servers in Germany,
Malaysia, and some other hidden places. Currently none in the USA or
UK, etc. Unfortunately, it is better to not tell you specifically
where they are because that makes it much harder for agencies to
attempt to subpoena/court order. If they are guessing jurisdictions,
we are all happier. Bottom line is place faith in audits. Further,
Torrify is formed as an offshore corp in the country of Saint Kitts,
so it is not subject to US laws, only those of UK Commonwealth and the
Regarding commercial anonymity, you will eventually realize that it is
the only way to go for high speed and low latency, otherwise the
network will be abused and suffer the tragedy of the commons.
Further, the browser is entirely capable of having no flash, java,
And lastly, TORPARK IS FREE. It just isn't released under the GPL, it
is released under the TESLA license, which is similar to the HESSLA
license. Because the way it is written GPL can have malware inserted,
the TESLA makes a legally actionable violation if malware is inserted.
With such sensitive project, I insist that people are not legally able
to abuse it.
