DEEP WEB – Part 3



TOR – Bridges

When world getting addicted to the new technologies ,The rulers of the world started spying on the world and started limiting resources to the world which the whole world wanted to view

In my last article , i said you “How To Access Dot Onion Sites” using tor
I want to clear one thing here , privacy and Anonymity are two different concepts ,Tor guarantees you in providing Anonymity  and Privacy its all depends on you .
Tor is not responsible for your stupidity in revealing your original identity while using Tor, I remember one researcher said 81% of the tor users are vulnerable , he might be true . Because i admit 81% of the users use tor for day to day internet life using same usernames and passwords and most of them never heard of NoScript and Never knew how to update the browser
In my upcoming articles I will guide through the anonymity and privacy while using Darknets
so for now , will concentrate on TOR BRIDGES
Thank god , Am from a country where using Tor is not a big deal
But there are some countries who block Tor usage and ISP will be tracking your traffic (although it will be encrypted , ISP will come to know that you are using Tor but not for what purpose)
In this scenario , we need to play with the ISP and continue using tor with no restrictions
There are two options to use Bridges , tor by default provides some bridges which you can get it from their official website , but since they are listed publicly there are many chances that censors will block those connections .In this case you need to look for other bridges

Obfuscated Bridges and Pluggable Transports :
censors have found ways to block Tor even when clients are using bridges.They use some special boxes at ISP to detect Tor,when Tor is detected they block the traffic flow.To overcome this Tor introduced pluggable transports . These transports manipulate all tor traffic between client and its first hop such that it is not identifiable as a Tor connection. If the censor can’t decide if the connection is a Tor connectiom , then they are less likely to block it. But pluggable transports are not immune to detection, if a censor is given enough time they can be detected Tor provides  fte , meek-amazon ,meek-azure,obfs3,obfs4,scramblesuit Among all these obfs3 is most recommend , you can get the bridges on the tor offcial sites , for more custom bridges you can visit to BridgeDB

Understanding A Bridge configuration Line:

 
141.201.27.48:443 4352e58420e68f5e40bf7c74faddccd9d1349413

This is how a bridge looks like :
The first element is the IP address of the bridge: '141.201.27.48' The second element is the port number: '443' The third element, the fingerprint (unique identifier of the bridge), is optional: '4352e58420e68f5e40bf7c74faddccd9d1349413'
some bridges tells about the pluggable transport technology as like :

obfs3 141.201.27.48:420 4352e58420e68f5e40bf7c74faddccd9d134941

In this obfs3 tells about the pluggable transport technology

Adding Bridges In Tor Browser When Tor Does not Work :
1) To add a bridge, follow the instructions on screen. Click the “Configure” button.

2) If you must configure a proxy then select “Yes” and enter the details on the following page.
If you do not use a proxy then select “No” and click “Next”.
If you do not know if you must configure a proxy then you likely do not need to do it.


3) After you configure a proxy or skip over that configuration page, the following page asks “Does your Internet Service Provider (ISP) block or otherwise censor connections to the Tor Network?”. Select “Yes” and then click “Next”.

4) Now you have two configuration options. You can use bridges which are preconfigured and provided with Tor Browser, or you can specify your own bridge(s).

5) If you want to use one of the provided bridges, then choose the transport type you want to use. obfs3 is currently the recommend type, but depending on where you are located another type may work better for you.

6) Alternatively, if you want to use a custom bridge, then select “Enter custom bridges” and copy-and-paste the bridge information into the textbox.

7) After you decide which bridges you want to use, click “Connect”. Tor should now be able to load successfully and the browser window should appear.

 
Adding Bridge To Tor Browser When Tor Does Work :
1)  Start Tor Browser:

 

2) To begin using bridges, open Tor Browser’s Network Settings:

 

3) Select “My Internet Service Provider (ISP) blocks connections to the Tor network”:

 

4) Now you have two configuration options. You can use bridges which are preconfigured and provided with Tor Browser, or you can specify your own bridge(s).

5) If you want to use one of the provided bridges, then choose the transport type you want to use. obfs3 is currently the recommend type, but depending on where you are located another type may work better for you.

6) Alternatively, if you want to use a custom bridge, then select “Enter custom bridges” and copy-and-paste the bridge information into the textbox.
In the upcoming articles .. i will continue with other Tor services
