    Summary: Anonymizing overlay network for TCP (The onion router)
    Tor is a connection-based low-latency anonymous communication system.
    This package provides the "tor" program, which serves as both a client
    and a relay node.
    Applications connect to the local Tor proxy using the SOCKS
    protocol. The local proxy chooses a path through a set of relays, in
    which each relay knows its predecessor and successor, but no
    others. Traffic flowing down the circuit is unwrapped by a symmetric
    key at each relay, which reveals the downstream relay.
    Warnings: Tor does no protocol cleaning.  That means there is a danger
    that application protocols and associated programs can be induced to
    reveal information about the initiator. Tor depends on Privoxy and
    similar protocol cleaners to solve this problem. This is alpha code,
    and is even more likely than released code to have anonymity-spoiling
    bugs. The present network is very small -- this further reduces the
    strength of the anonymity provided. Tor is not presently suitable
    for high-stakes anonymity.
