Hide SCADA in the ToR network – ..FREE-hiding in plain site..
gAtO cAn -now provide your company a FREE .onion network – reliable 24/7 secure / encrypted / untraceable communication between your SCADA systems talking to each other and the main office giving you real-time data from any remote SCADA site. As an example from Scheider Electric white paper on – Video Surveillance Integrated with SCADA – White Paper – we can now take that physical video security of all your remote video assets and transmit them securely, encrypted and untraceable to anyplace in the world to your datacenter. When going in and out of the invisible .onion network, you can control the entry and exit relays so picking safe verified relays to use is easy, or you can use your own relays, the more relays the better the system becomes at making you more invisible. The more people that use it the more untraceable and unmonitored it becomes. This kind of SCADA communication in the ToR- onion network redefines geo-political digital boundaries. Since it rides on any Internet connection it can be used anywhere.
in the ToR-.onion network merchants can’t spy on you and they can’t steal your information
Not if but when —business take over the ToR- .onion network it will change the landscape and give it more order but it will still give the user anonymity thats the key to this network your signal, your voice cannot be found but you can still communicate. The ToR- .onion network rides not on top or the bottom of the digital super-highway but thru it.
Let’s keep in mind that access to the ToR-.onion network is FREE to anyone and your company’s use of the network makes it safer for everyone since the more people use it the more unreachable-undetectable you become. But in business you also have to deal with hostile governments and protecting your people and assets thru a ToR .onion network becomes even more critical. You can still operate but be safe and secure in your business communications.
The ToRProject.org is something that is making an impact on the very lives of people that want to have a free safe secure voice. Just look at Mr Chen a dissident from China he was jailed because he spoke up about the disable in China. The ToRProject.com helps people like Mr. Chen speak and to remain in anonymity. But by adding real business -reays into the ToR- .onion network we will give these people and the business more transparency, it makes you more invisible on the internet. You can donate to the ToR project and it’s a 501(c), so it’s deductible. Look at the donors list and see who support this invisible network. U.S Naval Research, National Science Foundation- DARPA – National Christian Foundation are some of the people supporting the ToR Project, it’s not so bad if they use it— see lab Notes below –
How you gonna hack what you can’t find, can’t see and can’t trace to you?
Just think mr. bankers a free secret untraceable encrypted-communication place were you can do your banking deals -in secret- and nobody but you and your closes friends know it even exist, not the government, not your spouse and harder for criminals to find your valuable data. It hides you in an Internet bubble of packets were nobody knows who you are or how to find you. Try can’t even tell it’s a ToR- .onion network it hides it’s signal to blend into the bit’s and bytes of the landscape in the digital noise.
Technically it pretty cheap get the free software as many copies as you need FREE!!! No volume pricing no updates FREE!!! Once your computer that talks to the internet hooks up to a ToR- Relays it’s in the matrix. If you add your own ToR-Relays you can use trusted Relays as entry and exit nodes into the ToR-.onion network so you can let the program use it randomness or choose a path into a FREE invisible communication media accessible from any Internet connection. –
The ToRProject.org is currently still fighting censorship and monitoring in China, Iran, Syria and others were people are being killed and sent home in small boxes to their relatives. Because that person could not use a ToR-network access to his gmail account that was monitored they showed him his emails and his guilt and killed him. That’s how brutal it can become if you cannot have a safe secure access to a basic email to communicate with the world. Government will kill you for what you say. Donate to the ToRProject.org
It’s easy -if all else fails call the gAtO I can help your business become invisible in/on the Internet– gATO oUt.

SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) generally refers to industrial control systems (ICS): computer systems that monitor and control industrial, infrastructure, or facility-based processes, as described below:
- Industrial processes include those of manufacturing, production, power generation, fabrication, and refining, and may run in continuous, batch, repetitive, or discrete modes.
- Infrastructure processes may be public or private, and include water treatment and distribution, wastewater collection and treatment, oil and gas pipelines, electrical power transmission and distribution, wind farms, civil defense siren systems, and large communication systems.
- Facility processes occur both in public facilities and private ones, including buildings, airports, ships, and space stations. They monitor and control HVAC, access, and energy consumption.
A SCADA system usually consists of the following subsystems:
- A human–machine interface or HMI is the apparatus or device which presents process data to a human operator, and through this, the human operator monitors and controls the process.
- A supervisory (computer) system, gathering (acquiring) data on the process and sending commands (control) to the process.
- Remote terminal units (RTUs) connecting to sensors in the process, converting sensor signals to digital data and sending digital data to the supervisory system.
- Programmable logic controller (PLCs) used as field devices because they are more economical, versatile, flexible, and configurable than special-purpose RTUs.
- Communication infrastructure connecting the supervisory system to the remote terminal units.
- Various process and analytical instrumentation
