Yes, if something/anything is leaking any kind of your data. The OrBot - or TransProxy in Linux/Unix - it's just a route diversion layer that works only if there's nothing else is leaking your data. In a simple example: a tool like wget or fetch or curl-cli will not leak anything by itself, but anything else that is running(and there's a lot of stuff on ...
The key is considered valid for a timeframe like a month - that's my observation as a node operator I used to be some years ago. You can regenerate keys anytime just by cleaning the key folder and restarting Tor.
You cannot use torsocks on system utilities without disabling SIP. Your best bet is to install alternate versions of these tools using Homebrew and use torsocks on those binaries.
For example, you can find curl at /usr/local/opt/curl/bin/curl.
just 3 steps:
Run a VM/box dedicated to Tor
Route all the rest of the traffic through it - except the Tor node one
Do not confirm your phone, e.t.c... = keep a digital hygiene up
And it will work for sure
Yes so far you are correct.
If your only threat model is your university, you may use VPN/ssh tunneling whatever, which may be faster than tor and wont use so much resources for such a simple task.
If your threat model includes more than that, you might need tor.
Well, you can have multiple outbound addresses shown by an external sites because of Tor's feature to use a separate authentication user as a separated pipe, i.e. it will go out through another chain and - most likely - through another Exit Node. If you have Tor on your PC - basically you don't need anything else, everything can be configured using a ...
Well, any botnet can be used with Tor - because Tor is just a tunneling tool. Actually, some botnets have already used it. The source codes for bot+c&c are available in clear and dark web for free - just make some search ;)
torsocks needs to intercept the system calls for connections to divert them into tor. Because this application behavior could be malicious, apple seems to protect some apps from such behavior.
You could try to copy one of those tools to another directory and try to run it from there (like /tmp/ for a temporary try), if apple allows to run from there.
First, a device (your PC) can have multiple IP addresses, even on one physical interface. But that's not the thing with tor.
When using tor, the address shown is not yours, but the one of the exit node you are using in that moment for that circuit.
Simply said, you are using a new circuit for every site you visit so everytime, new address. In tor browser you ...
