Onion Routing

Looks like another potential tool for the bag of tricks.

Onion Routing. Ever wanted, or needed, to surf the Web anonymously? Intelligence officers have this need, but so do others. Anonymizing proxies can make it so that the site you visit doesn’t know who you are, but they don’t protect you from instream eavesdroppers or your own company or ISP. Now there’s an open source project you can use to protect your communications called Tor. [Windley’s Enterprise Computing Weblog]
