16
-    Providing a usable anonymizing network on the Internet today is an
17
-    ongoing challenge. We want software that meets users' needs. We also
18
-    want to keep the network up and running in a way that handles as many
19
-    users as possible. Security and usability don't have to be at odds:
20
-    As Tor's usability increases, it will attract more users, which will
21
-    increase the possible sources and destinations of each communication,
22
-    thus increasing security for everyone.
23
-    We're making progress, but we need your help.  Please consider

30
-    Ongoing trends in law, policy, and technology threaten anonymity as never
31
-    before, undermining our ability to speak and read freely online. These
32
-    trends also undermine national security and critical infrastructure by
33
-    making communication among individuals, organizations, corporations,
34
-    and governments more vulnerable to analysis. Each new user and relay
35
-    provides additional diversity, enhancing Tor's ability to put control
36
-    over your security and privacy back into your hands.

16
-    Tor can't solve all anonymity problems.  It focuses only on
17
-    protecting the transport of data.  You need to use protocol-specific
18
-    support software if you don't want the sites you visit to see your
19
-    identifying information. For example, you can use web proxies such as
20
-    Poliipo while web browsing to block cookies and withhold information
21
-    about your browser type.
22
-    </p>
23
-    
24
-    <p>
25
-    Also, to protect your anonymity, be smart.  Don't provide your name
26
-    or other revealing information in web forms.  Be aware that, like all
27
-    anonymizing networks that are fast enough for web browsing, Tor does not
28
-    provide protection against end-to-end timing attacks: If your attacker
29
-    can watch the traffic coming out of your computer, and also the traffic
30
-    arriving at your chosen destination, he can use statistical analysis to
31
-    discover that they are part of the same circuit.

-    <h1>Why We Need Tor</h1>  
14
-    
15
-    <p>
16
-    Using Tor protects you against a common form of Internet surveillance
17
-    known as "traffic analysis."  Traffic analysis can be used to infer
18
-    who is talking to whom over a public network.  Knowing the source
19
-    and destination of your Internet traffic allows others to track your
20
-    behavior and interests.  This can impact your checkbook if, for example,
21
-    an e-commerce site uses price discrimination based on your country or
22
-    institution of origin.  It can even threaten your job and physical safety
23
-    by revealing who and where you are. For example, if you're travelling
24
-    abroad and you connect to your employer's computers to check or send mail,
25
-    you can inadvertently reveal your national origin and professional
26
-    affiliation to anyone observing the network, even if the connection
27
-    is encrypted.
28
-    </p>
29
-    
30
-    <p>
31
-    How does traffic analysis work?  Internet data packets have two parts:
32
-    a data payload and a header used for routing.  The data payload is
33
-    whatever is being sent, whether that's an email message, a web page, or an
34
-    audio file.  Even if you encrypt the data payload of your communications,
35
-    traffic analysis still reveals a great deal about what you're doing and,
36
-    possibly, what you're saying.  That's because it focuses on the header,
37
-    which discloses source, destination, size, timing, and so on.
38
-    </p>
39
-    
40
-    <p>
41
-    A basic problem for the privacy minded is that the recipient of your
42
-    communications can see that you sent it by looking at headers.  So can
43
-    authorized intermediaries like Internet service providers, and sometimes
44
-    unauthorized intermediaries as well.  A very simple form of traffic
45
-    analysis might involve sitting somewhere between sender and recipient on
46
-    the network, looking at headers.
47
-    </p>
48
-    
49
-    <p>
50
-    But there are also more powerful kinds of traffic analysis.  Some
51
-    attackers spy on multiple parts of the Internet and use sophisticated
52
-    statistical techniques to track the communications patterns of many
53
-    different organizations and individuals.  Encryption does not help against
54
-    these attackers, since it only hides the content of Internet traffic, not
55
-    the headers.
