You cannot run tor inside torjail.

Well, you can, but the tor instance inside torjail would exit through
the tor instance outside torjail (so using 6 nodes and not only 3 hops).

the whole point of torjail is to force all traffic via a virtual network
interface that's routed into tor's sock5 (tor is started by torjail

an use case could be an hidden service:
let's say you're running a website as an hidden service and your website got
hacked. without torjail an attacker could found the real ip of your
website easily.

thunderbird is another use case: if you got hacked, it's easier to
deanonimize you without torjail.

I hope this clarifies.


if you think the project's name is a real issue, suggestions are welcome :)
