Come talk with Roger Dingledine, Tor project leader, about some of the challenges in the anonymity world. How do we get enough users? How do we get enough servers? How does public perception impact the level of anonymity a system can provide? How should we be interacting with law enforcement? How can we patch Wikipedia so it no longer needs to fear anonymous users -- or can we do it without changing Wikipedia at all? Can we protect Tor users who want to keep running their active content plugins? When are we going to see well-documented and well-analyzed LiveCD, USB, virtual machine, and wireless router images for easier and safer deployment? Should Tor switch to transporting IP packets, or should it continue to work at the TCP layer? How do we scale the directory system while handling heterogeneous and unreliable nodes, and without sacrificing security? Are three-hop paths really still better than two hops? What are the performance/legal/security tradeoffs of caching content at the exit nodes? Are padding and traffic shaping still bad ideas? Why aren't more people using hidden services and censorship-resistant publishing? Is everybody comfortable with having corporate and government users on the same network? How's it going with China and Saudi Arabia? What development projects does The Tor Project need your help with? Roger will give you his best answers for some of these topics and more, but you are encouraged to bring your own questions too.
