Re: Hacker strikes through student's router

by adding a protocol to signify persisting connections (so that while a circuit operates it is recognised as such) and a single signature check at the beginning of the circuit establishment. sure it will add *some* load to the server's cpu but the verification only has to be done once every 15 minutes per user at the most.

How do you propose to prove that the packet originated from a bona fide
Tor server, without agoric load leveling?
