Publisher's Summary

The NSA hates Tor. So does the FBI. Even Google wants it gone, as do Facebook and Yahoo and every other soul-draining, identity-tracking vampiric media cartel that scans your emails and spies on your private browsing sessions to better target you.

But there's hope. This manual will give you the incognito tools that'll make you a master of anonymity! Other books tell you to install Tor and then encrypt your hard drive...and leave it at that. I go much deeper, delving into the very engine of ultimate network security, taking it to an art form where you'll grow a new darknet persona - how to be anonymous online without looking like you're trying to be anonymous online.

Covered in Tor and the Dark Art of Anonymity:

  • Browse the Internet Anonymously
  • Darkcoins, Darknet Marketplaces, and Opsec Requirements
  • Tor Hidden Servers
  • How to Not Get Caught
  • Counterforensics the FBI Doesn't Want You to Know About
  • Windows vs. Linux - Which Offers Stronger Network Security?
  • Cryptocurrency (Real Bitcoin Anonymity)
  • Supercookies and Encryption
  • Preventing Marketers and Debt Collectors from Finding You
  • How to Protect Your Assets

    "informative read overall"

    overall this is not a bad a read and is quite informative across the chapters. it is a little short though and I felt it could have been longer.

    however, I would recommend it to anyone interested in Tor, anonymity and privacy online, and think that you'll feel more informed about these topics by the time you reach the end

    "Very informative"

    I bought another, more popular book expecting to learn about TOR and hopefully give myself some lessons and education on the subject. However, this isn't what I got.

    So I found this book, with some reservations as there wasn't any reviews. I was pleasantly surprised. The narration is good, but obviously narration isn't something that takes away from this as it is just an informative book with plenty of 'do's' and 'don'ts'. Exactly what I was looking for.

    "Interesting overview but unprofessional tone"
    What did you like best about Tor and the Dark Art of Anonymity: How to Be Invisible from NSA Spying? What did you like least?

    There is an interesting smattering of information about different apps, services, techniques and theories


    Any additional comments?

    Some of the technical info was really interesting, and it certainly gave me quick overview of the landscape and some current applications. As with all books, the application names can be quickly out of date but the author does a good job of delving into some of the technical detail.I found the undertone really put me off though - the author cannot help but continually imply that the security agencies are out to put innocent people in jail and he even refers to foreign governments using words like 'cesspools', and at one point goes off on a tangent about being bullied at school and therefore desiring privacy. As an IT professional who is just curious about how these technologies work, I found this quite offputting and it undermined some of the serious aspects of the book.

    "Useful information"

    Pretty useful content and tips. It might be a bit extreme for those who just want to know how Tor works and get some basic principles of anonymity. Part of the content felt like it was meant for those doing pretty shady or ilegal stuff. Even though, it is still pretty useful and informative.

    "Really enjoyed it but"

    I really liked this book. But even although it's well read and good content I would have probably preferred the book and not the Audio book.
    Very good.

    "Read it twice"

    Lots of useful info that you will need to make notes from. Read it twice, the second time with a pen and paper handy

    "Short, and not a lot of detail"

    Good information but very limited in details about the actual application, wish I was a lot longer.

    "Good Read"

    Enjoyed TOR, I had been in search of a book that would be more than a technical manual but provided descriptive examples as well. This book offered both. Great attention holder. Story's were well selected for illustration.

    "terrible middle ground"

    This was too complicated for an uniformed user, and too simple for an educated one. As someone familiar with the topic, the tone was one of a conceited child, while the information was mostly fluff with a very select few actual tidbits of information sprinkled in. Would not recommend for education or enjoyment.

    "Not bad for awareness"

    Great to make you aware of issues, and that tools are available. Doesn't address how the recommended tools can be trusted. Does a decent job separating privacy from anonymity. Could do more to tackle Tor exit node risks.

    "A fantastic and enlightening book!"

    I really enjoyed this book and found it very enlightening! As the author states, "Once you read and learn these truths you can never unlearn them" like Neo in the Matrix. I highly recommend this and a must read for anyone interested in changing their habits and having more security and privacy in their lives.

    "weird world we live in today, not my proficiency."

    I struggled to finish it very detailed for me. I have no clue now I want less computers in my life. I realize I'm being tracked just from my review, crazy world of a new type of human Symantecs. it's kind of a sad story.
