<!-- Cwtch -->
<div class="projectbox">
<a href="https://cwtch.im/"><img class="icon" src="$(IMGROOT)/cwtch-logo.png"
alt="Cwtch icon" width="80"></a>
<div class="projectdesc"><div class="name">
<a href="https://cwtch.im/">Cwtch</a>
</div>
<p>Cwtch is an extension of the metadata resistant protocol Ricochet to support
asynchronous, multi-peer group communications through the use of discardable,
untrusted, anonymous infrastructure.
</p>
<p>
<strong>Warning:</strong> Cwtch is an experimental prototype. Please do not use
it for anything where security, privacy, or anonymity is critical.
</p>
</div></div>

<!-- Ricochet -->
<div class="projectbox">
<a href="https://Ricochet.im"><img class="icon" src="$(IMGROOT)/ricochet.png"
alt="Ricochet icon" width="80"></a>
<div class="projectdesc"><div class="name">
<a href="https://Ricochet.im">Ricochet</a>
</div>
<p>Ricochet IM is an open-source, decentralized instant messenger project that
utilities the Tor network by design. It starts a Tor onion service on the users
local system and facilitates communication with other Ricochet users who are
also running their own Ricochet-created Tor onion service, providing End-to-End
encryption by never allowing the connection to leave the Tor network.
</p>
<p>
<strong>Warning:</strong> On some operating systems, Ricochet ships with
Tor 0.2.8.9. Tor 0.2.8.9 has several known onion service security issues,
including TROVE-2016-12-002 and later. Tor 0.2.8 has not been supported since
1 January 2018. Please update to a supported tor version before launching
Ricochet. Development stalled in November 2016, though it has been relatively
stable in the time since.

href="https://ahmia.fi/">Ahmia - Onion Service Search</a></div>
<p>
Ahmia (<a href="http://msydqstlz2kzerdg.onion/">msydqstlz2kzerdg.onion</a>)
is open-source search engine software that indexes, searches, and catalogs
content published on Tor Onion Services. Furthermore, it is an environment to
share meaningful insights, statistics, insights, and news about the Tor network
itself. In this context, there is a lot of work to do.
</p>
<p>
The Ahmia web service is written using the Django web framework. As a result,
the server-side language is Python. On the client-side, most of the pages are
plain HTML. There are some pages that require JavaScript, but the search itself
works without client-side JavaScript.

<!-- Orchid -->
<div class="projectbox">
<a href="https://github.com/mhatta/Orchid"><img class="icon"
src="$(IMGROOT)/icon-orchid.png" alt="OONI Icon" width="80"></a>
<div class="projectdesc">
<div class="name"><a href="https://github.com/mhatta/Orchid">Orchid</a></div>
<p>
Orchid is a Tor client implementation and library written in pure Java.
Orchid runs on Java 5+ and the Android devices. It can be used to Tor-ify Java
and JVM applications with near transparency. In a basic use case, running
Orchid will open a SOCKS5 listener which can be used as a standalone client
where Tor would otherwise be used.

pre-emptive blocking approach prevents exploitation of security vulnerabilities
(known and even unknown).
