tor source package in Ubuntu


tor ( unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream version.
  * Update apparmor profile: replace CAP_DAC_OVERRIDE with
    CAP_DAC_READ_SEARCH to match the systemd capability bounding set
    changed with  This change will allow tor to start
    again under apparmor if hidden services are configured.
    Patch by intrigeri.  (closes: #862993)
  * Remove tor-dbg binary package.  Nowadays Debian's toolchain
    automatically builds packages containing debugging symbols.  The new
    tor-dbgsym package will end up in the debian-debug archive.
    This tor-dbgsym package will Replace/Break tor-dbg versions
    prior to for now (to match the version in experimental
    with the same change), but as we keep providing backported builds for
    older suites, and since those keep the tor-dbg package for now,
    we'll likely keep increasing this version in future releases.
    (closes: #867547)
  * The dbgsym migration options require debhelper >= 9.20160114; update
    build dependency list accordingly.

tor: anonymizing overlay network for TCP

 Tor is a connection-based low-latency anonymous communication system.
 Clients choose a source-routed path through a set of relays, and
 negotiate a "virtual circuit" through the network, in which each relay
 knows its predecessor and successor, but no others. Traffic flowing
 down the circuit is decrypted at each relay, which reveals the
 downstream relay.
 Basically, Tor provides a distributed network of relays. Users bounce
 their TCP streams (web traffic, ftp, ssh, etc) around the relays, and
 recipients, observers, and even the relays themselves have difficulty
 learning which users connected to which destinations.
 This package enables only a Tor client by default, but it can also be
 configured as a relay and/or a hidden service easily.
 Client applications can use the Tor network by connecting to the local
 socks proxy interface provided by your Tor instance. If the application
 itself does not come with socks support, you can use a socks client
 such as torsocks.
 Note that Tor does no protocol cleaning on application traffic. There
 is a danger that application protocols and associated programs can be
 induced to reveal information about the user. Tor depends on Torbutton
 and similar protocol cleaners to solve this problem. For best
 protection when web surfing, the Tor Project recommends that you use
 the Tor Browser Bundle, a standalone tarball that includes static
 builds of Tor, Torbutton, and a modified Firefox that is patched to fix
 a variety of privacy bugs.

tor-dbgsym: debug symbols for tor
tor-geoipdb: GeoIP database for Tor

 This package provides a GeoIP database for Tor, i.e. it maps IPv4 addresses
 to countries.
 Bridge relays (special Tor relays that aren't listed in the main Tor
 directory) use this information to report which countries they see
 connections from. These statistics enable the Tor network operators to
 learn when certain countries start blocking access to bridges.
 Clients can also use this to learn what country each relay is in, so
 Tor controllers like arm or Vidalia can use it, or if they want to
 configure path selection preferences.
