Building Your Own Tor-centric ISP for Fun and (non)Profit
Gareth Llewellyn, @NetworkString
Following the Snowden revelations and the UK government’s revival of the Snooper’s Charter legislation, Gareth was one of many people who accepted the EFF Tor challenge. Unfortunately, many UK ISPs’ colocation providers do not appreciate Tor exits and, after several abruptly terminated servers, he decided to build his own privacy centric, non-profit ISP so he could operate Tor exits and offer Unix shells, etc. on his own terms. This talk explores the process of becoming a local Internet registry in Europe, dealing with RIR polices such as IPv4 exhaustion, Tor abuse complaints, and the deployment of a broadband product that only has a Tor bridge instead of a next hop at the end of a DSL connection.
