I have been running a Tor relay on a BeagleBone Black since last August. It’s been reset twice. Once after Heartbleed, which effectively destroyed the uptime calculation since it looks like a new relay. The other was when I accidentally unplugged it.
I run a Tor relay on my home network on a BeagleBone Black. It’s certainly not the fastest Tor relay out there, but it’s inexpensive, small, and doesn’t affect my home network. But more importantly, it allows users who are censored to access the Internet and the Tor project helps protect privacy online. The Tor … Continue reading Hulu Blocks Tor

I received my Tor t-shirt the other day! One can receive a t-shirt by meeting one of the following criteria (from the Tor Project website): A large enough ($65+) donation to the Tor Project. Operate a fast Tor relay that’s been running for the past two months: you are eligible if you allow exits to port 80 and you … Continue reading Received my Tor t-shirt!
I was happy to give Loveland CreatorSpace’s first class on how to use Tor! By the end everybody knew how to install, run, and verify that Tor is working and they could all connect to a hidden service! I recorded the class, so if the video and audio quality is acceptable, I’ll put the video … Continue reading Practical Internet Privacy with Tor
I’m posting my slides from last Wednesday’s Loveland CreatorSpace (LCS) show-and-tell. There was a great turn-out for our first meeting and an impressive display of art, jewelry, electronics, CNC milling, Daft Punk Helmets, and chickens. I decided to lay off some of the technical details with my project and instead present a Bildungsroman of how I became interested in cryptography and … Continue reading Crypto for Makers: Slides from Loveland CreatorSpace Kickoff
I’ve made some progress with using hardware acceleration on the BeagleBone Black (BBB) and running Tor. It appears that OpenSSL cryptodev engine does not use all the algorithms that the linux-cryptodev module makes available. I believe this can be changed with a patch for the OpenSSL cryptodev engine. But otherwise, at least from running Tor … Continue reading Tor and Hardware Acceleration with the BeagleBone Black
Imagine a place where mechanics, artists, and programmers go to work and play. Here you’ll see people soldering, others discussing home-brewing minutia, and some building robots. When you asking someone what they are making, they are excited to share and don’t respond with a please-don’t-bother-me-I-just-want-to-get-my-work-done-and-go-home attitude. These magical places are sometimes called by different names: … Continue reading Loveland CreatorSpace: the newest Hackerspace in Northern Colorado
I presented a few slides on Tor, the BeagleBone Black (BBB), and my BeagleBone Black Tor relay tonight. I think it went over well. There were some people who hadn’t heard of the BBB and they were excited about using it in all sorts of ways. On the Tor side, the question were more technical. … Continue reading Spreading the good word about Tor and the BeagleBone Black
