I’ve setup a transparent proxy and configured the Tor Browser not to start its own Tor daemon.
I have set
TOR_SKIP_CONTROLPORTTEST=1 but I’m confused as to what this does in the context of accessing the control port. Does this prevent the Tor Browser from accessing the control port? I have not configured the Tor Browser to use an alternative control port or configured one in my torrc.
Does this eliminate the risk of
GETINFO address? What if I configure a control port in my torrc, configure the Tor Browser to use it and unset the environment variable? Can
GETINFO address be used? Assuming I don’t have a control port filter proxy.
Will something like onion-grater still be required if
TOR_SKIP_CONTROLPORTTEST=1 is set?
This isn’t anything to do with Whonix. I just thought I could get some help here.
