-    Tor does provide a partial solution in a very specific situation, though.
3348
-    When you make a connection to a destination that also runs a Tor relay,
3349
-    Tor will automatically extend your circuit so you exit from that circuit.
3350
-    So for example if Indymedia ran a Tor relay on the same IP address as
3351
-    their website, people using Tor to get to the Indymedia website would
3352
-    automatically exit from their Tor relay, thus getting *better* encryption
3353
-    and authentication properties than just browsing there the normal way.

-    We'd like to make it still work even if the service is nearby the Tor
3358
-    relay but not on the same IP address. But there are a variety of
3359
-    technical problems we need to overcome first (the main one being "how
3360
-    does the Tor client learn which relays are associated with which
3361
-    websites in a decentralized yet non-gamable way?").
