The Tor network is the largest and well known anonymity network ever deployed.How does it work? Who uses it, where do they use it, and why do they use it? This talk will give a quick introduction to the Tor network, it will include real life examples of people using Tor to safeguard their use of the internet, and it will cover some of the current challenges facing the Tor network. If you've ever wondered about country-wide firewalls (both the technology and the social support behind them), geographically anonymous hosting, or practical privacy on the internet - this talk will be of interest.
