we always hear about torrifying things in the the distro, but i had question on Tor Design:
Lets say im living in US , and i want to use whonix,tails…etc:
*= Tor relays
- a,b,c = tor nodes as guardian,middle,exit
- zz,zgl = connection fingerprint
so me using Tor Browser to visit Signal website:
c*Austria -> signal.org (located in US) tagged as zz (lets say zz is the tag for tor browser)
on the same time i have downloaded/using signal:
(since we are using the same running Tor)
c*Austria -> signal.org (located in US) tagged as zgl (lets say zgl is the tag for Signal application)
now if Tor doesnt make new hops for each connection that an application connecting to it = my connection through Tor relays is very predictable/distinguishable.
if Tor does take each connection to it with a different path then that solve the issue, if not then connecting applications with one tor connection (like one GW) not really good idea.
- I2P does take each and every connection with new Tunnel.
- Havent check what GNUnet is doing for this issue.
Note: my question above is not sure if Tor taking everything into one path or not.
