Suppose I have a user account on a remote server run by a friend.
I create a SOCKS tunnel on my computer that forwards connections from a local port to the remote server:
ssh -N -D 12345 [email protected] (i.e. all local connections to
localhost:12345 gets forwarded to the
I configure the connection settings on the Tor browser to connect to the Tor network through a proxy: the SOCKS proxy on
localhost:12345 that I just created.
The question: what are the security implications of this scheme? What can the remote server (
10.1.1.5) see when I browse the web through the Tor browser?
Presumably, the remote server will be able to log connections and determine the sizes of the HTTP requests made through the Tor browser, but will it be able to determine the specific websites visited, or eavesdrop on POST requests?
