13) Pluggable transports are tools that Tor can use to disguise the
14) traffic it sends out. This can be useful in situations where an Internet
15) Service Provider or other authority is actively blocking connections to
16) the Tor network.

34)       obfs3 makes Tor traffic look random, so that it does not look
35)       like Tor or any other protocol. obfs3 bridges will work in most
36)       places.

48)       obfs4 makes Tor traffic look random like obfs3, and also prevents
49)       censors from finding bridges by Internet scanning. obfs4 bridges
50)       are less likely to be blocked than obfs3 bridges.
