Bridges in whonix

hello,

  1. does bridges like obfs4 work properly within latest whonix?

  2. is it just like configuring normally within the tbb?

  3. apart from hiding from isp or local network, is it true bridges are more vulnerable to attacks and user profiling than normal entry guards?

1) does bridges like obfs4 work properly within latest whonix?
Yes. For obfs4, wait for Whonix 11. [Release announcement most likely later today.]
2) is it just like configuring normally within the tbb?
No, unfortunately not.

Bridges in Whonix have to be configured on Whonix-Gateway. Manually. Using /etc/tor/torrc. Not using TBB.

See https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Bridges.

is it true bridges are more vulnerable to attacks and user profiling than normal entry guards?
A general Tor question. Please see this discussion (linked from Whonix https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Bridges documentation) but copied here for your convenience: https://lists.torproject.org/pipermail/tor-talk/2012-May/024369.html
