The Tor Browser is designed to avoid writing any sensitive data to disk unless the user changes the default settings to enable a feature that does record sensitive data. So with the default settings, Tor Browser does not save cached versions of websites. You might find this document useful (section 4.3. Disk Avoidance): https://2019.www.torproject.org/...

If no login/password is implemented in any form, then it is 100% scam.

Building onion websites is generally no different than building regular websites. The main difference is the underlying connection protocol and not the website itself. You build onion websites using the same tools such as a web server (Apache, Nginx, etc), the documents (HTML, css, etc), and server-side languages (PHP, NodeJS, etc). There is no special ...

It depends on what you mean by Dark Net. There are several TLDs used for different systems of anonymous internet access. Here are a few: .bit used by Zeronet .i2p used by the Invisible Internet Project .loki used by Loki .onion used by the Tor Project (included for completeness) Also, there are systems that don't use domains at all or, at least, not as we ...

Onion services can only use a single TLD (.onion). The Tor network is designed to use only one TLD and you would need to modify all Tor clients and servers if you wanted to support more. As the address space for onion addresses will never run out and addresses are not human-readable, there's no practical need for additional TLDs. Multiple TLDs for onion ...

I'm not sure what exactly you mean here; but if you're trying to run a onion service you don't have to deal with JavaScript at all if you don't want to. Just don't include any JavaScript code on the webpages/services you plan to offer via the onion service. If you meant how you can disable all web servers from delivering JavaScript to the websites you visit, ...

Yes. You will probably want to see these two blog posts: https://blog.torproject.org/two-incentive-designs-tor https://blog.torproject.org/tor-incentives-research-roundup-goldstar-par-braids-lira-tears-and-torcoin

Indeed! run a node or two - and it will make the whole network a bit faster

Garlic Routing is a variant of Onion Routing which I2P (Invisible Internet Project) uses. The fundamentals of garlic routing and garlic encryption were developed by Michael Freedman and were improved and implemented by the developers of the I2P project. It encrypts multiple messages together to make it harder for attackers to analyze traffic. To protect the ...

As HackerNCoder stated, if the G-Suite admins can access your device, then they can almost certainly see your browsing history. They can install software to monitor your usage of the Onion browser. They control your device and you can't stop them. However, if they only have access to your google account, then you are probably anonymous. I would recommend not ...

It's decentralized in significantly different fashion than .crypto domain. In blockchain-backed domain system you can claim any name not claimed by anyone else. In .onion all you can do is to generate new private key that maps to SOME domain name (hash of your key). Period. Unless nobody else knows your private key, nobody else can publish hidden-service on ...

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 ...

This post on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/TOR/comments/8x7dwj/why_public_wifi/ is a good source to answer this question. As one Reddit use stated, if your Internet Service Provider can see you are using Tor (assuming you directly connecting to the guard node) and is also the Internet Service Provider of the connection endpoint like the website (which is ...

It is totally up to "designer" of this Search Engine, is not? Google has published their index-method, it is called PageRank, so here you could at least guess a little bit... Nevertheless, nobody knows all of "The Kitchen" and war for the first places in Google's Search Results is endless... You could try to tap your target, using kind of ...

The method you mention of preventing traffic correlation attacks is generally called cover traffic. Sometimes it also makes sense to reorder the traffic as well, which is a network design often called mix networks or Chaum mixes. These techniques generally have the downsides of increasing latency and decreasing network capacity, so you need to be careful ...

Keep in mind that by uploading your hs_ed25519_secret_key to ANY third party hosting you're losing control over it. Beauty of TOR is you can run your Hidden Service from your own hardware and be perfectly safe

Use different hidden services if anonymity (hidden services don't necessarily provide "privacy") is paramount. The reason being that if the service operating on one port reveals your identity (or if that identity is somehow leaked out-of-band), it also reveals the identity of the operator of the service on the other port. Moreover, you should ...

Great Questions! It's awesome that you're curious about protecting your identity and what you do on the web! After all, it should be nobody elses business but your own. Congratulations! I take issue with the answer provided by one user that said "Any programming language that you would use for normal websites (HTML/JavaScript/CSS for frontend/static ...

I found a tool which uses http pings to check if the website is online, tells you how many ms of response and status code: https://github.com/Isloka/tor-pinger/
