Synopsis

Client to the anonymous Tor network

Description

Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location. Tor works with many of your existing applications, including web browsers, instant messaging clients, remote login, and other applications based on the TCP protocol.

To torify applications (to take measures to ensure that an application, which has not been designed for use with Tor such as ssh, will use only Tor for internet connectivity, and also ensures that there are no leaks from DNS, UDP or the application layer) you need to install torsocks.

This package only provides a client to the Tor Network.
