@privacytools @blacklight447 I absolutely love this. I see so many "security people" claim that the Tor network is insecure, that the govnerment owns 80% of the exit nodes, etc.

It is not that simple. Tor is not the best, but it is good enough. And it is usually the users' faults they are identified, an error on their part.

As I noticed, Directory authorities are not mentioned in both blog posts about #Tor

ritter.vg/p/tor-v1.6.pdf

svn.torproject.org/svn/project

And this is very important topic because:
1. Makes Tor #centralized in aspect of decision making who will be able to be any other type of node, and introduces TRUST in 3rd parties in #anonymity system.

2. And whole network depends on ~10 servers, that can be hacked/controlled by NSA/GCHQ
