Re: Preconfigured hidden service

Hash: SHA512

There is, it's old but it's something that could be built upon, an old
variant of Damn Small Linux called ELE (everything leaves encrypted)
that could be used as a base for something like this.  It could be
updated, complete with webserver & whatever else, and set up to
install on a hdd with out a lot of trouble.  Just a thought, but I do
believe it would work.

| If every user is a router(not necessarily an exit) and has a

| But this really, really is important. Why not have 200 000 routers or
| more instead of 480 knowing that these routers at least give 10% of
| their bandwith?
| As the internet connection speeds of users will increase in the future
| Tor will automatically benefit from this. Tor is free to use and the
| least thing users can do is give bandwidth.
| I don't know if this is possible but how about somebody receives just as
| much bandwidth as he offers himself.
| If he is giving much then Tor will look for a circuit of nodes that give
| just as much. In a user base of 200 000 users that should be possible.
| This could prevent such attacks like the one from the Boulder university
| as well.
| I don't see any Tor servers from Korea for example. But there surely are
| lots of users. In Korea they have very fast connections.
| If all of them become Tor routers Tor would fly.
| What exactly is the reason that there is a tor client and a tor server?
| A button with which people choose to be an exit or not would suffice.
| Only one Tor software(client & server combined) and everybody is a
| router with at least 10% bandwith.
| I am telling you nobody would ever use public procies again with this
| implementation!
