Thanks for the feedback! Keep in mind this is the first applet I have ever written :-) Any information about the new API would be appreciated. Do you happen to know what versions it is compatible with? Bizzare that they would explicitly allow non-proxied connections. I used the Datagram Socket was so that I could send requests directly to the DNS server and not have to do any extra processing on the server side.

The next version of decloak should be able to avoid Java/Javascript completely by loading up streaming media, PDFs, and so on within IFRAME tags inside the HTML. These media files would reference the magic DNS domain or custom services running on my server. An easy hack would be to stick a fake SMB service on the server and then embed UNC paths into the HTML. The tricky part is implementing enough of CIFS that I could extract a unique identifier from client's request.

All versions since 1.5 (released Sept 2004) have it. The current version is 1.6 (although now Sun is calling it Version 6).

The docs for the 1.5 API are here:


Anyone who thinks it is safe to use Java with Tor needs to read this:

In the 1.6 API, everything is the same.

You should read the Fort Consult White paper "Practical Onion Hacking" as some of things you mention (SMB, CIFS) are mentioned there, I think. VB and ActiveX are probably worth exploring.
