Default The Tor BSD Diversity Project

The Tor BSD Diversity Project is an initiative seeking to extend the use of the BSD Unix operating systems in the Tor public anonymity network. The OpenBSD Guide to Configuring Tor Relays is based on OpenBSD 5.7. It might be worthwhile to update that guide to the recent release (6.2) and maybe add guides for non-relay configurations - network proxy; hidden services - and perhaps include examples for deployment of various network services. To that end, I am curious to hear what the OpenBSD gurus in this community think about the current guide, in particular, any assessments and suggestions that might lead to improvements in pairing OpenBSD's security concerns with Tor's privacy concerns.

To anyone who hasn't tinkered with Tor, I highly recommend it; it's a nifty project that seems to be competent in its execution and, besides the primary goal of privacy, it is sometimes a convenient way to circumvent limitations or restrictions in network access: for example, hosting a service behind a NAT'ed ISP or getting around a goofy firewall policy.

So... the TDP is an outgrowth of NYC*BUG and I'm still technically part of it.
It's also important to point out one of the big TDP outputs so far is the Tor Browser Bundle on OpenBSD.

A Tor installfest was just done at NYC*BUG: http://www.nycbug.org/index.cgi?action=view&id=10654

I can't speak too much to the current guides but I too am interested in what others think of them.

I found a little problem in the guide: the _tor user's login class should be changed to tor from the default class of daemon.

$ doas usermod -L tor _tor


Other than that, a few useful points might be:

Set up a control port password.
$ tor --hash-password examplePW
16:FC80FE79EA7545D5600721A18EBEE1B4D929CD65017732D EF5ADAD8169

A working example configuration file.
/etc/tor/torrc
Code:
SOCKSPort 9050
SOCKSPort 192.168.1.1:9050
SOCKSPolicy accept 127.0.0.1, accept 192.168.1.0/8
Log notice syslog
RunAsDaemon 1
DataDirectory /var/tor
ControlPort 9051
HashedControlPassword 16:FC80FE79EA7545D5600721A18EBEE1B4D929CD65017732DEF5ADAD8169
User _tor
Verify the configuration file.
$ doas tor --verify-config -f /etc/tor/torrc

Start the daemon.
$ doas /etc/rc.d/tor start

A method to set up clean circuits.
$ printf "AUTHENTICATE \"examplePW\"\r\nSIGNAL NEWNYM\r\n" | nc -w 1 127.0.0.1 9051
