Submission + - The NSA Is Becoming Skynet By Monitoring Tor Nodes

rjmarvin writes: Tor is the backbone of the anonymous Internet, and the NSA is turning the proxy network into Skynet by monitoring and even running its own Tor nodes http://sdt.bz/content/article..... A German news outlet has released a scathing report http://daserste.ndr.de/panoram... on just how the NSA monitors Tor traffic. Specifically, the NSA is tagging IP addresses that come to Tor nodes and watches them. They're especially watching anyone who knows about XKeyscore, a tool built at the NSA to do deep packet analysis of monitored traffic.the NSA has, effectively, built a huge stack of offensive intrusion tools that can be automatically triggered by something like searching for information about XKeyscore, and is the beginning of the end of Internet freedom.
