  • Is it Important?

    • People’s lives depend on it

    • Authoritative Government vs. Activist Groups

    • Syria, Egypt, China

  • Answer: Tor





Tor problem

  • The public list of Tor relay nodes can give away all the IP addresses.

  • To fix, developers added “bridge”

4 ways to get bridge ip
4 Ways to get Bridge IP

  • https://Bridges.torproject.org will tell you few based on your IP address and location

  • Mail [email protected]

  • Via social network

  • You can set up your own and tell your target users directly


Problem
Problem

  • Slowly China was able to block most Bridges by probing

  • DPI (deep packet inspection) is still possible


Solution paper
Solution/Paper

  • Pluggable transports

  • SkypeMorph

    • Disguise the Tor packets to look like Skype traffic by using already existing Skype VoIP protocol and user authentication system.

Bridge


Advantages
Advantages

  • Anyone can use, it’s free!

  • Can transfer reasonable size of data = no bottleneck

  • Encryption already built in

  • In order to stop Tor, they also have to stop legitimate Skype calls, which is highly unlikely

  • Another big advantage: Harder to block bridges even after they are found
