TOR - Exactly How to Remain Invisible

By Joshua Cody

EXPLORING THE DEEP WEB CAN BE
DANGEROUS

The author and publisher of this book highly
discourage you from using TOR for any type of illegal
purposes.

 

The Internet is non-arguably one of the most amazing developments in human
history. The worldwide network of computers has forever changed our
perception of communication. It started as an innovative development in a
laboratory to interchange text messages.
Can you imagine that? During its early stages, the Internet only had code and
plain text; no images, no multimedia, nothing else than text. Almost 30 years
later, the web has completely changed at a hectic pace. Nowadays, the Internet
contains vital information of every user. It carries our personal information,
photographs, videos, and much more. Data you may never realize you were
creating is floating in the cyberspace as you read these pages, such as your
search preferences, cookies, latest search engine enquiries, and so on.
So, the Internet is unsafe not only due to the malicious users who try to grab
your personal information for their perverse purposes (such as PIN Codes for
credit cards; a risk you should never underestimate) but also due to the personal
information ongoing “leakage” that occurs during the regular use of the online
services. Do you agree with this manipulation of your personal data?
Most likely, you don’t. However, it is rather difficult to escape completely from
this exposure. After all, every time you use a certain software tool or a web
application; you must agree with the terms of use. Otherwise, you will not be
making any use of those services. So, when you open a browser to surf the
Internet, you agree with the use of your personal information on the developers’
side. For instance, Google collects data from all of us, ranging from locations to
personal searches.
Doesn’t it sound good? Fortunately, there are more secure options our there; the
major candidate in the search engines sector is DuckDuckGo: a search engine
that does not store personal information form users. However, as you may
already realize, most people will continue to make use of Google. Why? There
are two strong reasons. On one side, the risk is not that high and, most likely,
people do not care.
Most of us may have been using the worldwide network for quite some time.
Have you ever been hacked? And, if so, was it your fault or you just run into a
god-like hacker who broke every security protocol until the greenish “Access
Granted” message prompted on top of a black screen? If you think it was the
latter; you may have watched too many films about cyber-hacking experts who
do not actually exist.
Let us face reality for a moment before we resume the course of the book. Just a
few, a really small minority of us, will ever be subjected to online threats. And
no, I am not talking about that message that shows up on your browser claiming
that a virus will destroy the PC, the city and every inhabitant unless you –
casually – pay some money. That’s just a joke – a disgusting one the first time
you run into it.
We will discuss how to avoid such kind of situations and how to handle them
when they show up. They will eventually show up as long you continue to
navigate online. Just a few of us will lose money due to online hackers. And,
among those unfortunate ones, most of them will have made a major mistake –
such as forgetting to log out of your Facebook account in a public PC. Has it
happened to you? A friend of mine suffered the consequences of such innocent
mistake. It didn’t have major consequences but it could have.
Just as you do in real life, you should never expose personal data online. Never,
ever. So, if you have been hacked, was it the hacker’s skill or your “own” fault?
I’m not trying to blame anyone; these situations happen. The purpose of this
book is to illustrate you in the techniques of becoming a ninja online: someone
who navigates and is not seen. And, above all, you will learn many strategies
I’ve gathered during the years to stay safe online.
The ultimate tool we will review is The Onion Routine Project (TOR).
Originally developed by the military, The Onion Routine Project was born in a
Naval Research Laboratory. Nowadays, fortunately, this amazing software tool is
of regular use; and it is open to anyone on the Internet. It allows you to become
invisible in your daily navigation. Hence, TOR will be helpful to reduce the risk
of data leakage to zero as long as you stick to the recommended use.
Let us start our journey to become savvy navigators and develop a set of
practices to enforce the security of your personal info.
