If you sniff on the exit node and the connection is not https/hidden service, then you will have the traffic in clear but you will not be able to know from who it came.

Answer: Perform your own deterministic build based on the instructions provided at blog.torproject.org, which states "We achieve our build security through a ...


Nowadays compilers will generate different binary each time: BuildID will be different compiling time (present in some types of binaries) will be different So don't ever expect getting identical files from identical code. Apart from this, TOR is a very specific software, that is pain-in-the-ass for many governments, 3-letter agencies and everyone ...
