[tor-talk] (UK) Parliamentary advice on Tor

Interesting reading  - the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology
(POST) has published it's report on Tor and the (in)feasibility of blocking
anonymous access for users within the UK.

The document's a PDF, and the layout is questionable, but it's worth a read
if you have 5 minutes.


There are some interesting insights in there, from the perspective of what
LEA's see.

The overall summary though is - blocking anonymous access wholesale is not
an acceptable policy option in the UK, and would impact on non-criminal Tor
users. There _might_ be more appetite for legislating against Hidden
Services, but enforcing it would be technologically infeasible.
