There is no need to know the key of the relays to decrypt the data they send back. TOR works the in the same way as SSL/TLS does: when you connect via HTTPS (HTTP over SSL/TLS) to a web server, you don't need to know the key of the server to decrypt the data you receive from it, this because during the SSL handshake phase, your browser and the server agreed ...

It is almost secure and it doesn't matter hackers are also using TOR for anonymity. Since the traffic is encrypted at every hop your communication will be secure till the exit node of TOR. EXIT NODE It is the node where your Traffic leaves the anonymous network and enters into the open Internet. From there your traffic can be monitored. If anyone wants to ...

Tor is best known for providing anonymity to the users communication. Every time tor uses different routes to forward the data to destination to maintain anonymity. If it is not doing so then same path can be traced to intercept the communication. I think this is the best method to anonymize the communication.

I would assume this is to suppress the amount of intersection attacks(Nodes periodically fail or leave the network; any chain that remains functioning cannot have been routed through either the nodes that left or the nodes that recently joined the network) before/between/after the gaurd, relay and exit nodes. Since if you are able to intersect one and it ...

Different threat models. Whonix (needs to) assumes, that the host is safe. (Tails needs to assume this as well to some degree, because I suppose, many users are downloading and burning/installing Tails using their host, where malware could interfere.) Tails is more focusing on being amnesic. Whonix is more concerned about misbehaving applications and ...

No, it doesn't provide any additional security, and I don't see the point of your friend for suggesting that. ssh -D 8008 user@127.0.0.1 Connects to your local machine creating a SOCKS proxy on 8008 (the ssh-keygen -b 4096 above is only needed once, and is used for not requesting a passphrase from you) And also add Socks4Proxy 127.0.0.1:8008 to ...
