TOR is talked about in a book I’m reading

Hi folks,
I’ve got a brand new podcast, which I’ve mentioned here before called the Books Podcast. On this podcast, the books read are talked about in podcasts, like this podcast which hasn’t had one in quite awhile. I also have an accompanying blog which posts books my co-host Janet and I are currently reading, whether it is for the podcast or not. That may be our choice. The current book I’m reading is This Machine Kills Secrets: How WikiLeakers, Cypherpunks, and Hacktivists Aim to Free the World’s Information by Andy Greenberg. It is not available on BARD as of yet, but maybe soon as some of the books on the podcast recently appeared there. In chapter 4, this book is talking about the Tor (anonymity network) which Steve Gibson talked about on Security Now a weekly security podcast which I subscribe. More recently, I published an article talking about how TOR now has services on it, just like the normal Internet. The difference between these services and the services you and I use are the very different. The services on TOR can’t be traced, so illegal activity such as child pornography, drug sales, and more can go on without law enforcement supervission. Chapter 4 of the above mentioned book is talking about this very thing. Here is the blog post I posted on the books blog about This Machine Kills Secrets in case you don’t want to go to Amazon right away. Byron Lee recommended this book, and so far I’m enjoying it. Things like TOR, or any anonymous service you may choose to use is only as secure as the users using them. I don’t think I’d personally use it for every day use, but I’d sure keep it in mind in cases i could see a use for, but not at the current time. I find it interesting that this book brings it up and some of the things that were discussed in articles and Security Now being in this book. The article in question that goes in to detail is Walkthrough Of Tor, Silk Road, Deep Web – from the Business Insider is the article I mention where the link to the article is within that post. Is this a coincidence or could TOR not be as secured as first built? I’m going to continue to read this book to find out, and I’d be interested in your thoughts. I recommend you use the comment system if possible or to send me an E-mail. View our about page here on the blog for contact information. The comment boards await you.
