Protect your privacy, reduce your online footprint with Tor. Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. It also enables software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features. Individuals use Tor to keep websites from tracking them and their family members, or to connect to news sites, instant messaging services, or the like when these are blocked by their local Internet providers. Now there is Tortilla to route all TCP/IP and DNS traffic through Tor.

The Tor Browser Bundle is everything you need to safely browse the Internet. This package requires no installation. Just extract it and run. It includes its own version of Firefox to preserve anonymity, but plugins such as Flash don’t work with the bundle.

I’ve mentioned the Tor Project earlier in my post encrypt your email with PGP.

Tortilla – Anonymous Security Research through Tor

CrowdStrike researcher Jason Geffner is going to release an open source free new tool, called Tortilla, a new tool to securely, anonymously, and transparently route all TCP/IP and DNS traffic through Tor, regardless of the client software, and without relying on VPNs or additional hardware or virtual machines. Because:

The global Tor network and its routing protocols provide an excellent framework for online anonymity. However, the selection of Tor-friendly software for Windows currently sucks.

This new tool, called Tortilla, also supports Flash and other plug-ins, and doesn’t require additional hardware or virtual machines. Jason will releaseTortilla in BlackHat Conference this year.

This talk presents a new tool to securely, anonymously, and transparently route all TCP/IP and DNS traffic through Tor, regardless of the client software, and without relying on VPNs or additional hardware or virtual machines. Black Hat 2013 will mark the release of this new Tor tool — Tortilla!

You can find Tortilla (currently v1.1.0 Beta) on GitHub in the CrowdStrike/Tortilla repository. A pre-built version of Tortilla.exe can be downloaded from http://www.crowdstrike.com/community-tools/.
