[tor-talk] Tor relay on small and cheap devices
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I'm currently trying to find a way to easily spread some pre-configured, pre-installed devices embedding a tor-relay. And I have some TP Link hardware, the smallest of them being the WR703N (http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-wr703n). Those devices are cheap and handy (can actually run on battery for years,since it does not consumes that much power... around 1W/h).
Tor can actually fit on them (as long as you build an OpenWRT firmware including tor), and you even have around half a megabyte of space on the 4MB flash drive after that. And it runs pretty much easily (I used the notes here https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/Torouter/OpenWRT_setup_notes for the whole process).
However, given the relatively limited capability of those devices, 4il wondering if they can have enough entropy to run Tor safely, and if it won't endanger the network.
So,before going further on the step of propagating those Tor small boxes, I need advices about this entropy. Is it an issue? Is there a way to work around it (generating keys and certificates on a different computer maybe? but then, how?)
