-    <h2>Tor: GUI Competition Overview</h2>
73
-    
74
-    <p>
75
-    Tor is a decentralized network of computers on the Internet that increases
76
-    privacy in Web browsing, instant messaging, and other applications. We
77
-    estimate there are some 200,000 Tor users currently, routing their traffic
78
-    through about 500 volunteer Tor servers on six continents. However, Tor's
79
-    current user interface approach &mdash; running as a service in the background
80
-    &mdash; does a poor job of communicating network status and security levels
81
-    to the user.
82
-    </p>
83
-    
84
-    <p>
85
-    The Tor project, affiliated with the
86
-    <a href="http://www.eff.org/">Electronic Frontier Foundation</a>, is
87
-    running a <b>GUI competition</b> to develop a vision of how Tor can
88
-    work in a user's everyday anonymous browsing experience. Some of the
89
-    challenges include how to make alerts and error conditions visible on
90
-    screen; how to let the user configure Tor to use or avoid certain routes
91
-    or nodes; how to learn about the current state of a Tor connection,
92
-    including which servers it uses; and how to find out whether (and which)
93
-    applications are using Tor safely.
94
-    </p>
95
-    <br />
96
-    
97
-    <h2>Goals</h2>
98
-    <p>Submitters for phase two will produce a work of <a
99
-    href="http://www.opensource.org/">Open Source Software</a>
100
-    that will provide a user interface to the Tor system, perhaps by way of the
101
-    <a href="/svn/torctl/doc/howto.txt">Tor Controller Protocol</a>.</p>
102
-    
103
-    <p>We are looking for a vision of how Tor can work in a user's everyday
104
-    anonymous browsing experience.</p>
105
-    
106
-    <p>Entries may:</p>
107
-    <ul>
108
-    <li>Allow the user to fully configure Tor rather than manually searching
109
-    for and opening text files.</li>
110
-    <li>Let users learn about the current state of their Tor connection
111
-    (for example, how well the current Tor connection is working),
112
-    and configure or find out whether any of their applications are using it.</li>
113
-    <li>Make alerts and error conditions visible to the user.</li>
114
-    <li>Run on at least one of Windows, Linux, and OS&nbsp;X, on a
115
-    not-unusually-configured consumer-level machine.</li>
116
-    </ul>
117
-    
118
-    <p>Other ideas include:</p>
119
-    <ul>
120
-    <li>Provide detailed information about which
121
-    applications, ports, or packets are (or are not!) passing through Tor,
122
-    including accounting for both Tor- and non-Tor traffic.</li>
123
-    <li>Provide
124
-    additional statistics about the Tor connection.</li>
125
-    <li>Give users more control over how their Tor behaves at certain times
126
-    of day or in other contexts (like operating as a server).</li>
127
-    </ul>
128
-    
129
-    <p>More examples of useful features include:</p>
130
-    <ul>
131
-    <li>How much bandwidth is Tor using? How does this compare
132
-    to the overall network traffic to/from the computer?</li>
133
-    <li>Is there network traffic from ports or applications that the user
134
-    intended to be anonymized?</li>
135
-    <li>What Tor servers does the user know about on the network? Where are
136
-    they? How available are they?</li>
137
-    <li>An interface for displaying or controlling Tor paths:
138
-    "show me the network from Africa by way of Asia". Think of the global
139
-    satellite map from the movie <i>Sneakers</i>.</li>
140
-    <li>Configure other running applications to use Tor (for example,
141
-    by modifying or working through the network stack, and/or by altering
142
-    application configurations).</li>
143
-    <li>Provide an elegant installer for Tor, your GUI submission, and
144
-    other supporting applications.</li>
145
-    <li>Make your GUI manage the Tor process and other supporting applications
146
-    -- start them, stop them, realize when they've died.</li>
147
-    <li>Provide meaningful defaults for a good Tor experience.</li>
148
-    <li>Provide application-level anonymity -- that is, not just paying
149
-    attention to transport anonymity on the level of Tor, but also paying
150
-    attention to the anonymity of the http headers, cookies, etc.</li>
151
-    <li>Let the user specify different Tor config option sets depending on
152
-    time of day (e.g. daytime vs. nighttime).</li>
153
-    <li>Provide useful controller functions for Tor servers too --
154
-    for example, walk the user through recommended bandwidth configurations
155
-    and exit policies.</li>
156
-    <li>Have a "minimized view" of your GUI for common use, and then a more
157
-    detailed view or set of windows when the user wants more detail.</li>
158
-    <li>Provide a button or some automatically updating interface to let
159
-    the user learn whether Tor is working currently, perhaps by accessing an
160
-    external what's-my-IP site and seeing if it thinks you're a Tor server;
161
-    and give useful messages and recommendations if it doesn't seem to
162
-    be working.</li>
163
-    <li>Provide a way to automatically configure local firewalls (ipchains,
164
-    Windows firewalls, etc) to let Tor traffic out (and in, for Tor
165
-    servers). As a bonus, configure it to prevent non-Tor traffic from
166
-    leaving (and notify when it tries).</li>
167
-    </ul>
168
-    
169
-    <p>We're interested to see submissions that don't achieve all of the
170
-    above goals -- if it's useful to Tor or Tor users in any way, please
171
-    submit it!</p>
