Securing Tor


How to secure services like Tor against FBI/NSA ? The topic of Tor security is special: the opponents are typically TLA's. Silk Road was taken down by a very capable TLA with hackers, 0-days, and legally-empowered investigators. They are partnered with the most powerful TLA (NSA) in the world of SIGINT collection, with ability to ask for their help & parallel construct that away. They also have legal partnerships with others around the world. So, this is a situation where even remote attacks demand a high assurance solution. If it's medium, it needs to focus assurance activities on everything we know they hit. And you better be covered legally, but I'll focus on technical side for now.
