Re: Warnings on the download page


I just subscribed to the or-talk list and would be happy to answer any 
questions related to the recent "catching pedophiles" article and the 
decloak test tool. I am in the process of updating the decloak 
demonstration to explain each of the tests and provide source code for 
the components. What may not be obvious (especially from the ZDNet 
article), is that I believe in the Tor project's goals and am not 
developing these types of tests to damage the project. 

I will not respond to any questions regarding the legallity of Tor traffic 
capture and manipulation. I believe this is still a gray area, since it 
depends on whether a Tor node qualifies as a service provider or meets 
the safe harbor requirements. I will not respond to questions about what, 
if any, Tor nodes I operate.

I am able to answer any technical questions related to the research I have 
done (which includes generic content-detection and filtering, as well 
decloaking/deanonymization tests). 

Some quick URLs for anyone who needs them:
