Note: I was asked by the tor developers (Roger et al.) if I would like to maintain this
package for FE.
Tor is a connection-based low-latency anonymous communication system.
This package provides the "tor" program, which serves as both a client and
a relay node. Scripts will automatically create a "_tor" user and
group, and set tor up to run as a daemon when the system is rebooted.
Applications connect to the local Tor proxy using the SOCKS
protocol. The local proxy chooses a path through a set of relays, in
which each relay knows its predecessor and successor, but no
others. Traffic flowing down the circuit is unwrapped by a symmetric
key at each relay, which reveals the downstream relay.
Incorporated fixes as advised by Dmitry similar to nsd and l2tpd packages. That
is not using /var/run/name.pic, added chkconfig --add, and added a rm -r
