gAtO wAs – asked the Tor-Network is slow as heck, does not support sending outgoing email and does not support UDP packets of the TCP/IP protocol, so can it be weaponized? Maybe monitoring the Tor-Network like Prism and Nucleon or the Japan based Daedalus Monitoring program at the very least?
Data collection in Tor:
I guess this all depends on your definition of what a weaponize cyber weapon is-///-IP theft- here we have a vast collection of both /IP-(intellectual Property) and /copyright – /hacking /sql-i in Tor// -.- /hacktivism -how about /personal privacy online-collection of all internet transaction and data sharing with Google, Facebook, Microsoft and others— /government censorship of it’s people /Worldwide Internet monitoring-/// Like a room 641a for Tor only traffic.
Mix a little more counter-offensive cyber class weapons like Stuxnet, Flame and DuKu – add a bit of misinformation and propaganda to the mix and we have a better question.
Next we have a more military type cyber weaponized solution. Control Drones planes in Tor -another one is dDos, attacks on the electric grid or sabotage satellites. Cyber attacks like power outage, hacking attacks on cell phones and wall street computers and add traffic lights and traffic in the northeast going wacko. Like they say trains, planes and automobiles are all connected to cyberspace from China to Canada…
Tor can also be used in all the above scenario- Yes big brother/sister it can. So the answer is Yes, but Tor is not the pony network that can do this work. There are other kinds of anonymized networks that can be used, and with your own relays all over the world you can create your own Tor-private network that only you use so it will be faster and side nobody can see it – well Tor is not the only network one to watch for cyber weaponized products – gAtO oUt
