In the aftermath of the relay early attack and in order to significantly reduce one’s exposure to traffic confirmation attacks in general, one can restrict entry access to Tor through a single trusted entry guard.
Assume I have a Tor relay “SweetRelay” set up somewhere that has earned the guard flag, that I trust it, and that I want to use it as my sole entry guard.
Normally, I would just go to my client Tor config file (/etc/tor/torrc) and add:
MY QUESTION IS: Can I make this same modification to /etc/tor/torrc on Whonix gateway and achieve the same result (i.e. Whonix only connecs through my trusted entry guard)?
Thanks in advance for input.
