Re: [tor-talk] Tor Weekly News â October 15th, 2014

For general principle, I always thought it was a little strange that Tor changed circuits every 10 minutes. That it was too predictable, like a patrol car driving by the bank exactly at the beginning of the hour.
Never deviating.

There may not be any current, known exploits of this in Tor, but many things in Tor are built around randomness - for a specific reason.

On the other hand, what about destination sites that have only a few active Tor users at a given time. Of course, their 10 minute circuits wouldn't have all begun at the same time.

But of the Tor users on that site, if only one users circuits change at a specific time & continue to do so every 10 minutes, does that make them harder or easier to pick out of that specific crowd?
