Tor (The Onion Router) is an implementation of second-generation onion routing.

Overview

Tor is a distributed censorship-resistant network designed to anonymize TCP-based applications.

Attacks

Timing attacks

Misconfigured software

TLS attacks

Eavesdropping by exit nodes Tor doesn't encrypt traffic between an exit node and the target server, so exit nodes are able to capture all unencrypted traffic. Malicious exit nodes can perform man-in-the-middle attacks on encrypted protocols.
