Re: all traffic through a VPN on top of tor, done!

I don't really know. I think that you really don't want to be your own
"anonymizer", unless you control computer all over the world. It seems
you are just trying to shorten the circuit.

For this kind of use (VPN) you are connecting to a server you implicitly
trust, since you control it. You don't really need strong anonymity, one

Any malicious node has only one way of attacking you: be the man in the
middle and try to get your ssh key. But ssh comes with protections
against it and, with a simple precaution, even a malicious node it's ok,
if it routes your traffic.

limited to 3 hops, so that it can't be used to over saturate the
