+<p><strong>WALPOLE, MA</strong> The Tor Project releases an article about
+the <a href="/press/presskit/2010-09-16-circumvention-features.pdf">"Ten
+Things to Look for in a Circumvention Tool"</a>. As more countries
+crack down on Internet use, people around the world are turning to
+anti-censorship software that lets them reach blocked websites. Many
+types of software, also known as circumvention tools, have been created
+to answer the threat to freedom online. These tools provide different
+features and levels of security, and it's important for users to
+understand the tradeoffs.</p>
+<p>This article lays out ten features you should consider when evaluating
+a circumvention tool. The goal isn't to advocate for any specific
+tool, but to point out what kind of tools are useful for different
+<p>Tor's tools and technologies are already used by millions of people
+to protect their activities online.  These users include journalists and
+human rights workers in politically rigid countries communicating with
+whistleblowers and dissidents.  Law enforcement officers on Internet
+sting operations stay anonymous with Tor, as do people wanting to post
+socially sensitive information in chat rooms, like rape or abuse survivors
+and those with illnesses.  The Tor network also provides protection
+for people looking for another layer of privacy from the millions of
+websites and ISPs bent on collecting private information and tracking
+their moves online.</p>
+<p>Based in Walpole, MA, The Tor Project develops free and open-source
+software that provides online anonymity to the everyday Internet
+user. Tor was born out of a collaboration with the U.S. Naval Research
+Lab starting in 2001, and it became an official U.S. 501(c)(3) non-profit
+in 2006. The Tor Project now works with many individuals, NGOs, law
+enforcement agencies, and businesses globally to help them protect their
+anonymity online.</p>
+<p>In addition to its efforts developing and maintaining the Tor anonymity
+software and the Tor network, The Tor Project also helps to lead the
+research community in understanding how to build and measure scalable and
+secure anonymity networks. The Tor developers publish several new research
+papers each year in major academic security conferences, and just about
+every major security conference these days includes a Tor-related paper.
+Tor is a project-funded organization with a staff of 15.</p>
