Tor: an anonymizing overlay network for TCP
Tor is a connection-based low-latency anonymous communication system which
addresses many flaws in the original onion routing design.
Tor is a toolset for a wide range of organizations and people that
want to improve their safety and security on the Internet. Using
Tor can help you anonymize web browsing and publishing, instant
messaging, IRC, SSH, and more. Tor also provides a platform on which
software developers can build new applications with built-in
anonymity, safety, and privacy features.

To enable the tor server, set tor_enable="YES" in your /etc/rc.conf
and edit /usr/local/etc/tor/torrc as desired. (However, note that the
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/tor rc.subr script can override some torrc
options: see that script for details.) To use the torify script, install
the net/torsocks port.
Tor users are strongly advised to prevent traffic analysis that
exploits sequential IP IDs by setting:
In order to run additional, independent instances of tor on the same machine
set tor_instances="inst1 inst2 ..." in your /etc/rc.conf, and create the
corresponding additional configuration files /usr/local/etc/tor/torrc@inst1, ...
Alternatively, you can use the extended instance definition to specify all
instance parameteres explicitly:
Install tor txz package:
# pkg install tor
