[tor-talk] Can Tor resist active IP discovery attacks from inside the client?


As suggested by @proper, I am opening a new topic on the subject:

I have not seen this addressed previously. Is this easily possible, or
does the question require further research? Clearly, the assumption is
that the client cannot issue GETINFO requests to Tor control port or
anything of the sort — all client traffic is routed via Tor (directly
or transparently) or blocked.
