The amazing Rasberry PI is a mini home computer for Linux hobbyists. It is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. Used by kids all over the world to learn programming.
One of the best uses for one is configuring it as a WIFI router hotspot enabling WIFI internet anywhere you can cable it in.
I have preconfigured this Pi as WIFI hotspot that automatically connects over the secure TOR network!
Tor was originally designed, implemented, and deployed as a third-generation onion routing project of the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory. It was originally developed with the U.S. Navy in mind, for the primary purpose of protecting government communications. Today, it is used every day for a wide variety of purposes by normal people, the military, journalists, law enforcement officers, activists, and many others.
Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. It also enables software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features. Tor provides the foundation for a range of applications that allow organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy.
Individuals use Tor to keep websites from tracking them and their family members, or to connect to news sites, instant messaging services, or the like when these are blocked by their local Internet providers. Tor’s hidden services let users publish web sites and other services without needing to reveal the location of the site. Individuals also use Tor for socially sensitive communication: chat rooms and web forums for rape and abuse survivors, or people with illnesses.
Journalists use Tor to communicate more safely with whistleblowers and dissidents. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) use Tor to allow their workers to connect to their home website while they’re in a foreign country, without notifying everybody nearby that they’re working with that organization.
This build makes using TOR very easy.
Simply plug into your home router and turn the device on. it will automatically:
1. Boot a fully usable version of Linux
2. Create a WIFI hotspot called “Police_Surveilance”
3. Start DCHP networking
4. Connect the wired network port to direct traffic over the TOR network.
Simply connect the NETWORK and the POWER and the system will do the rest*
Fantastic! From Windows 8:
From IOS devices too!
Comes with all the Equipment needed:
- Raspberry Pi Model B 512MB RAM – The Raspberry Pi® is a single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of stimulating the teaching of basic computer science in schools. The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. The design is based around a Broadcom BCM2835 SoC, which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and 512 Megabytes of RAM. The design does not include a built-in hard disk or solid-state drive, instead relying on an SD card for booting and long-term storage. This board is intended to run Linux kernel based operating systems.This is the Raspberry Pi Model B 512MB RAM model with two USB ports and a 10/100 Ethernet controller.
