You can check network packets against public Tor node list (for example https://torstatus.blutmagie.de/) using WireShark or any other packet sniffing software.

Yes! I'll answer by another security question, which is big enough a key. In a company phone network, how the admin notice that a line is used to establish an outside connection to build an Internet connection on modem? A rogue modem has a scheme of communication which is pretty clear: one number called and a terrific communication time. More seriously, ...

According to scuzzy-delta, yes: It is possible to detect that someone on your network is using Tor (e.g. You're a network administrator at a workplace, and an employee is using it), and the fact that you're using it is in itself interesting information. His answer: http://security.stackexchange.com/a/27848/76663 Using a bridged TOR connection is a ...

TOR -> startpage search -> view by Ixquick Proxy. This always worked for me the few times I've needed it. or just use https://ixquick.com search engine instead of startpage. As for setting TOR up to do this automatically without the hassle, I don't know.

Am I just running around and is there a better way to do this or is this not going to accomplish a private email account anyway? It's not going to accomplish privacy from the prying eyes of major governments for a very simple reason: the e-mails sent to your company can be read from the sender's outbox (perhaps even while they are being composed!). ...

TLDR: - The two are distinct concepts (as you noted) - The use of "darknet" in both cases is coincidental - As of 2015, "darknet" would be much more likely to refer to a private overlay network In full: In their paper about operating the Internet Motion Sensor (Bailey et al, "Practical Darknet Measurement") refer to the unallocated IP range as a portion ...

The exit node doesn't need to know the public key of the client, because they operate on symmetric keys. Tor's design document has a section where it describes how circuits are built. The client (called onion proxy) sends a CREATE packet (or cell in Tor terms) to the first relay. It uses Diffie-Hellman key exchange to construct a symmetric key. The first ...

The client uses Diffie-Hellman to negotiate a session key with each node when establishing a circuit. This is done incrementally, so each DH handshake (after the first) is routed through the existing partial circuit. https://svn.torproject.org/svn/projects/design-paper/tor-design.html#subsubsec:constructing-a-circuit So, the exit node has a shared session ...

Before searching via Internet, I was thinking about it; what about creating virtual machine inside a virtual machine (nested vms) and use different VPN for each of them. At the end, Is it more secure or just making 'tortoise' Internet speed? After searching, I found a guy who claims that using nested VMs with VPN chain is a complete solution for ...

Short answer, I do not think that any society will prosecute anyone for removing illegal content. You are just cleaning some mess, that's all you are doing. Would you talk about uploading new content of the same kind, creating new accounts for such usage, etc., then anonymity would be preferable. But here you are just cleaning your account. From a more ...

It never hurts to anonymize the traffic. Chances are nothing is going to happen either way, but if you do login hide the current IP address. It would depend on log retention length and a LOT of other factors.

Running requests via proxy will break a lot of default options for tools. If you look into how proxychains works you'll find: SOCKS is a layer 5 protocol. That means it doesn't care about anything below that layer in the OSI model! That means that you can't use it to tunnel protocols operating below layer 5. This includes things such as ping, ARP, etc. ...
