What is Whonix-Gateway ™?

From Whonix



Whonix-Gateway ™ is software. Whonix-Gateway ™ runs Tor.

Tor is software. Thousands of volunteers are running computer servers that keep users anonymous on the Internet. It works by moving data across many Tor servers, called Tor relays. The role of each server is to move that data to another server. With the final hop moving data to the end site. As a result, information transmitted in this way is hard to trace. See also why Whonix uses Tor.

Every virtual machine properly connected to Whonix-Gateway ™ will be connect to the Internet using Tor and only Tor.

Users should never run applications such as Firefox inside Whonix-Gateway ™. All applications that the uses wishes to use Tor should be run inside Whonix-Workstation ™.
