Re: exit node back to user

No. If you are using tor (for example) at your office, the office firewall can't see what you're doing, they just see encrypted data. However, if there is a tap _on_ _your_ _computer_ they can see what you're doing.

     I meant like this:

                            My Computer-----------------*Local
Tap-*-------------------[first node]------    -------   -------Destination

I think you meant traffic going out from My Computer is encrypted, so
*Local Tap *can't read it. Right?
*Traffic coming back from Destination must pass through [first node],
*Local Tap*, before reaching My Computer. Please clarify, does *Local
Tap* see unencrpted traffic between [first node] and My Computer?
