There are many reasons to use TOR, including personal privacy and being able to use the “deep web”. Google has indexed over 200 terabytes of data that makes up the internet that can be accessed using HTTP traffic. This currently only accounts for 0.004% of the total internet which is made up of thousand’s of servers connecting organisations and individuals across the planet. To understand how these protocols and systems can interact with each other we need to be aware of the many different protocols, like TOR, that are available. Just like going on the internet every day, we need to be cautious but accessing services like TOR are no different than accessing your “normal” internet. This project can easily be developed by making the Raspberry Pi an access point for other devices so their traffic is also using the TOR network. It is important to use strong passwords and if you are planning on accessing TOR websites make sure you are connecting to a .onion website, using common .html etc will still be tracked and by still expose data about you.
