Tor launches do-it-yourself privacy bridge in Amazon cloud

Tor launches do-it-yourself privacy bridge in Amazon cloud.

While the core routers are known to the Tor team, bridges are “hidden” from the network and act as a way for users to get around Internet service providers who block access to Tor’s core network for one reason or another. A Tor bridge configured in Amazon’s EC2 environment would be available to route traffic from anyone who can reach Amazon over the Internet, concealing the true destination of a user’s Web traffic.

Tor Cloud will make it even easier for individuals within enterprises to bypass traditional internet security controls.
