Can Tor be trusted anyway?
The Onion Router:
The term "onion routing" refers to layers of encryption - Layers, geddit? Somebodies been watching too much Shrek.
But who were the notorious anti-establishment anarchists who created this beast I hear you ask.
"Originally sponsored by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, which had been instrumental in the early development of onion routing under the aegis of DARPA"
Hmm, not exactly the freedom and openness promoting entity one might hope. Given Tors provenance I'm reluctant to trust it 100% and am amazed that anybody else does either.
