Teaser image for the TOR Relays contribution.

SYNOPSIS: TOR is short for The Onion Router and was a project initiated by the U.S. Navy purposed to keep internet traffic anonymous. Now, TOR, mainly contributed by TOR Project is a non-profit organization whose main purpose is the research and development of privacy tools.
The Onion Router project relays could be hosted by anyone, including you and I. Higher the amount of relays mean a more robust and faster connection in the TOR Network. I host several TOR Middle Relays. Middle Relays are nodes in the network that relay encrypted traffic to another middle relay or to an exit relay (the final relay that will output signals from TOR to the world). The traffic that goes throughout my relays are set to be never released to the internet but kept only within TOR Network. Most likely, any relays named "SIGINT" hosted from Canada are owned by me.
