That code is now getting a revamp, set to go live sometime later this year, designed to both strengthen its encryption and to let administrators easily create fully secret darknet sites that can only be discovered by those who know a long string of unguessable characters.And those software tweaks, says Tor Project co-founder Nick Mathewson, could not only allow tighter privacy on the darknet, but also help serve as the basis for a new generation of encryption applications."Someone can create a hidden service just for you that only you would know about, and the presence of that particular hidden service would be non-discoverable," says Mathewson, who helped to code some of the first versions of Tor in 2003.This includes but is not limited “Just a few hours later, we checked the new service from Anonymous and to our amusement, there were only 20 people present in the room and out of the 20 just 3 to 4 users had an idea about the new service or even Anon ops.So uninformed were these clueless users in the chat room that they were learning about newly heard terms such as hacking.” states Hack Read.“I wouldn’t expect there to be any planned lessons taught for a bit here.See also Overview about Pidgin protocols and their encryption features.If encryption to the server is enabled, the Tor Exit Node can no longer eavesdrop.Anonymous also published a video on You Tube announcing the chatroom and the service it offers.In a video posted online, the group outlined the intentions of the chatroom.
Developed by the Tor Project, a nonprofit organization that advocates for anonymity on the internet, Tor was originally called The Onion Router because it uses a technique called onion routing to conceal information about user activity.
