Suggestion: run Tor exit nodes

Recommended Posts

This would fall in the non-profit category of giving back to the community. Instead of the average AirVPN user thinking of running a Tor exit node, why not let the pros do this on our behalf. That way your users actually give back to the Tor Project, albeit indirectly by supporting AirVPN. So, users feel good. AirVPN takes another action in line with their mission and it's another small and feel-good ad for AirVPN. Win win for everyone.

Just to be clear, I did find this older post about Tor relay servers, but the Tor network has comparatively more of those than exit nodes. Also, this might alleviate the issue that is being expressed in the Tor server thread.

Hello,

As it seems that one of the weak points of TOR could be an "evil" exit node, do you think that it would be a good idea to restric TOR exit nodes (using the torrc configuration files) to a set of trusted exit servers, for example, the Quintex Alliance ones in the US?

Or, is best to let TOR itself to choose the exit node, and don't worry about?

Regards,

Definetely let Tor choose the exit nodes. Otherwise you could heavily decrease your anonimity.
Just because a node isn´t malicious, it doesn´t mean that it cannot be monitored by a malicious third party.
Fortunately, Tor chooses a different circuit for every website you visit.
