    Fedora Update Notification
    2015-04-08 03:25:59
    Name        : tor
    Product     : Fedora 21
    Version     :
    Release     : 1.fc21
    URL         :
    Summary     : Anonymizing overlay network for TCP (The onion router)
    Description :
    Tor is a connection-based low-latency anonymous communication system.
    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.
