Re: TorLab

For those who are experimenting with TorLab (I hope there is someone besides me ;-)
TorLab v 0.9 is ready, with the following new features:

+ filesystems upgraded to Tor and

+ startup files check Tor version and append version specific Tor parameters

+ merged log file: each VM logs into the hostlab directory as well. These logs can be merged with the mergelogs.sh script. I'm also planning to merge these high level logs with the packet logs based on timestamps.

Thanks for testing it!
Let me know if you have any problems or doubts during install, so that I can improve instructions!

Dear all,

My virtual machine based Tor framework is available at

It provides an easy way to set up a whole private Tor network on one
Linux PC (it works only on Linux). I was calling it TorLab .... let me
know if this is in conflict with sg, or if you have a better idea.

The aim is threefold:
- to help students/researchers in understanding how Tor works
- to study the effect of changes in Tor behavior, including
configuration changes and code changes
- I hope it will also be useful for development, by providing a rapid
test environment, maybe automated tests

If you find the framework difficult to install or use, have a look at
PuppeTor, a Java based framework with similar objectives.
