How The Onion Router (aka TOR) works?

Let's talk a bit about anonymization, more specifically onion routing, so Max has done a very good video on the Dark web And the deep web and the service web and the differences between them when people talk about the dark web They're mostly talking about Tor and specifically Tor hidden services. Now I am not talking about that certainly today I might do that in a different video Tor literally stands for the onion router, right, it is an implementation of onion routing right which was developed in the mid 90s by US Naval research.The idea is It bounces around connections between different routers so that they're hard to track and it's and it provides anonymity So this is different from confidentiality which we usually associate with encryption right most of the time, we're encrypting messages So that even if people see that we've sent a message We, they can't read what it is like, but sometimes we don't even want people to see that we sent a message at all So what I'd like to do is focus on onion routing specifically bearing in mind, that Tor is a and implementation of it so in some sense I am also talking about Tor, okay And maybe we'll focus a little bit more on what it is that Tor does differently a bit later. So this is me and which is my very well drawn computer as always and I want to talk to a server here Which doesn't have a monitor because in my view servers don't have monitors, so normally on this client server setup I want to talk to a server, but in this case I don't want anyone to know that I am talking to a server at all I'd like to be remain completely anonymous, right, now if I then go onto the server and log on obviously that's not anonymous anymore Right so it's limits to this but this is the idea, now how this works is I am going to bounce my connection around and Then it's going to go to the server and if in essence the last node on the hop, the last hop on the network is Is going to be the one actually visits that website on my behalf a bit like a proxy we're going to use multiple levels of encryption to try and Essentially confuse people who are trying to work out what's going on right now Tor in it in In its implementation uses three hops three intermediate nodes, so I am going to limit: one That's not a very good computer Two.

The Most PRIVATE Search Engine (2021)

And to circle back to web search, I got word that when netscape launches this week, yahoo will be the default directory. They've got their own button and everything what the hell is yahoo. Two guys stanford used to be called jerry and david's guide to the world wide web. These guides to the world wide web are called search, engines and they're. Like directories that list all the websites that exist websites are hosted on servers all over the world and when you use the web to visit one of these sites, your computer needs to know the specific address of where the website's information is located in order to retrieve it in the early internet days, it was really difficult to find all these websites, because there were no directories, you had to either type in an exact address or click on a link, or you wouldn't find the page.
