Caveat in collaboration with The Tech Learning Collective presents Tor: What is it Good For? (Absolutely Everything!). Come learn how the free Tor Web Browser can be your gateway to the Dark Web while simultaneously keeping you safer & your personal info more private as you browse web sites big & small.
From illegal online drug stores like Silk Road to DDoS botnet command & control headquarters, media attention has long painted the Dark Web as though nothing good can come of it. But learn just a little bit more about how Tor & hidden services work & you'll find a treasure trove of valuable possibilities for day-to-day Internet use. The same technology that can hide the location of a drug ring can also serve as a free VPN-like service to protect your privacy while you browse the Internet, make censored websites available again, & even let you host your own Internet services for free, all without opening a single port on your firewall!
In this deep dive workshop on Tor, the Tech Learning Collective's cybersecurity trainers will show you how to make the most of this widely available & free digital safety tool. They'll demonstrate numerous Tor features such as Tor authentication, target service load balancing, & NAT-punching. In the process, you'll finally understand-on a technical level-what the Dark Web actually is & how it works. Bring a laptop to class, & you'll leave having run your own Dark Web site. Whether you're a veteran black hat or a timid newbie, this class will shine a light on the Dark Web once & for all.
