If a user connects to the clearnet webservice with Tor - then the webserver sees the exit node used by the user. If the user connects to the webservice through the .onion domain - the webserver sees the ip as 127.0.0.1 (localhost), and have no idea where the traffic comes from. The main difference is that if you connect through the onion domain everything ...

The user will have to configure their browser to use the Tor on your VPN server as proxy with remote hostname resolution. Otherwise they can not browse hidden services.

These words have no technical meaning and aren't used by the people who actually build these systems, so they have no formal definitions. For example these words are not used by Tor or the research community. They are terms used mostly by the media and are usually used to project privacy tools in a negative way, or by people trying to make these privacy ...

Timing Attacks: Having another non-Tor browser open will deanonymize you if it is correlated with the information the other browsers/programs provided. This means that you should avoid visiting the same websites, using the same accounts, etc. Assume that you have two accounts on a website, a public account which you access with a regular connection and a ...

First, let's establish the proper definitions of each term: The clearnet: the publicly available internet. This is the surface web, the part of the web that can be accessed by search engines. Darknet: A darknet is an overlay network within the Internet that can only be accessed with specific software, configurations, or authorization, usually using a unique ...

Neither of those links are to onion services. The first one (https://randomletters.onion.pet) is a MITM proxy which you can see from the .pet at the end. The second one (https://otherletters.com) is a site pretending to be an onion address which you can see by the .com at the end. So to answer your question, no DuckDuckGo is not indexing onion services.

Short answer: Using the .onion links can only increase your security or do no harm (the security stay the same). Use them as much as possible. Long answer: It depends on what your threat model is. If it includes someone have already hacked your computer (or the website have some of your private data but may betray on you), then no the .onion sites are not ...

It is as safe as using any other browser and internet connection, granted that you live in a country that has not banned tor traffic in general. If you live in a less strict country, say the USA, you can perfectly fine use tor for regular sites like reddit. Do note on the privacy part however: if you visit regular sites in a systematic order, or log in to ...

Generally yes, any requests to websites you visit in the Tor Browser whether it’s an onion address or a regular address will be routed through the Tor network. This means that any website you visit will not learn your IP address. Even with its new privacy features, Firefox does not hide your IP address.

ABE and ClearClick are part of the NoScript add-on. ClearClick Clickjacking is a method of tricking you into clicking something you probably didn't want to click on. There's various ways to clickjack, but most of them use iFrames or JavaScript to partially cover a link or button, so you accidentally click on the "bad" link instead of what you thought you ...

An answer is simple: use a second HS! You're using a second HS as a proxy or OpenVPN server for the very deep HS of yours. And no problem will be regarding the privacy/location/deanonymization of your first HS

You will probably need to create a transparent proxy (which uses socks to forward traffic via Tor), and have traffic routed through that. You will also need to do something funky with DNS, to stop clearnet DNS traffic leaking out of your VPN server. So it's technically possible, but difficult. Some other systems exist which do this, for example http://...
