Home » Persistent Tor Entry Guard Relays can make you trackable Across Different Physical Locations
Patrick started developing Whonix, the Anonymous Operating System in 2012, when quickly others joined efforts. He collected experiences working pseudonymous on Whonix for two years, enjoys collaboratively working on privacy preserving software.
That is a quiet interesting problem. And I would like to convert it into a 'bigger' problem which named 'the differences between different ways to connect to the Tor network'
To make it clear I made a table shown below (please correct me if there's anything wrong) :
As you can see above, using an encrypted proxy/VPN to connect to Tor network is not a bad idea from many aspects, so I REALLY would like to see a proxy will be added into the WhoinxGateway, which will definitly benifit users (especially users from coutries like China) a lot. If you ask my advise, I would recommand a free (Both in price and freedom) proxy named lantern which is very popular in China, here's the link (https://github.com/getlantern/lantern).
I do appreciate your work and if there's any problem I can help with just tell me
We are not aware of any http(s) or socks4(a)/5 proxies that offer an encrypted connection between itself and the user.

research non-persistent Tor directory guards
That is exactly what I would like to discuss with you! I mean, as far as I see, a lot of proxies/VPNs are 'user-to-proxy encrypted'. And please let me introduce some of them: 1. VPNGate: http://www.vpngate.net/en/ 2. Psiphon3: https://www.psiphon3.com/en/open-source.html 3. ShadowSocks: https://github.com/Long-live-shadowsocks/shadowsocks 4. Lantern: https://github.com/getlantern/lantern
