Re: [tor-talk] isp monitoring tor
Sure, I understand what you mean. I'm assuming a situation that doesn't involve legal issues. This would be illegal surveillance, using average resources with your ISP supporting it for some reason. I think Tor would be able to handle this type surveillance if used correctly.
I would like to know what their procedure would be outside of monitoring ExitNodes. How much effort it would be to examine the packets and get any useful information.
