Infrastructure node for other people's use of Tor network

Tor is composed of a client, at least three middle nodes, and a public endpoint, and the result is that privacy-seeking users bounce their web, ftp, ssh, other traffic around the network, and recipients, observers, and even the relays themselves have difficulty tracking the source of the stream.

This package provides only the middle nodes, which are essential for a robust network, but don't provide an entry point or create an exit point.

This package DOES NOT INCREASE YOUR OWN PRIVACY. If you wish to use Tor yourself, get Tor Browser.
