+<h2><strong>TOR PROJECT RELEASES CIRCUMVENTION TOOL ARTICLE</strong></h2>
18
+
19
+<p><strong>WALPOLE, MA</strong> The Tor Project releases an article about
20
+the <a href="/presskit/2010-09-16-circumvention-features.pdf">"Ten
21
+Things to Look for in a Circumvention Tool"</a>. As more countries
22
+crack down on Internet use, people around the world are turning to
23
+anti-censorship software that lets them reach blocked websites. Many
24
+types of software, also known as circumvention tools, have been created
25
+to answer the threat to freedom online. These tools provide different
26
+features and levels of security, and it's important for users to
27
+understand the tradeoffs.</p>
28
+  
29
+<p>This article lays out ten features you should consider when evaluating
30
+a circumvention tool. The goal isn't to advocate for any specific
31
+tool, but to point out what kind of tools are useful for different
32
+situations.</p>
33
+
34
+<p>Tor's tools and technologies are already used by millions of people
35
+to protect their activities online.  These users include journalists and
36
+human rights workers in politically rigid countries communicating with
37
+whistleblowers and dissidents.  Law enforcement officers on Internet
38
+sting operations stay anonymous with Tor, as do people wanting to post
39
+socially sensitive information in chat rooms, like rape or abuse survivors
40
+and those with illnesses.  The Tor network also provides protection
41
+for people looking for another layer of privacy from the millions of
42
+websites and ISPs bent on collecting private information and tracking
43
+their moves online.</p>

+<h2>ABOUT THE TOR PROJECT</h2>
46
+
47
+<p>Based in Walpole, MA, The Tor Project develops free and open-source
48
+software that provides online anonymity to the everyday Internet
49
+user. Tor was born out of a collaboration with the U.S. Naval Research
50
+Lab starting in 2001, and it became an official U.S. 501(c)(3) non-profit
51
+in 2006. The Tor Project now works with many individuals, NGOs, law
52
+enforcement agencies, and businesses globally to help them protect their
53
+anonymity online.</p>
54
+
55
+<p>In addition to its efforts developing and maintaining the Tor anonymity
56
+software and the Tor network, The Tor Project also helps to lead the
57
+research community in understanding how to build and measure scalable and
58
+secure anonymity networks. The Tor developers publish several new research
59
+papers each year in major academic security conferences, and just about
60
+every major security conference these days includes a Tor-related paper.
61
+Tor is a project-funded organization with a staff of 15.</p>
