Hello Again Tor-landers!
I'm running out of things to ask because the Tor docs are pretty good
I'm pretty sure about the answers to some of the question below. I just
wanted to verify I didn't goof somewhere....
So basically ORs have a a limit on number of Relay Data cells they are
willing to send down/up the circuit in **each direction**?
It appears, when an OR can send more cells, it sends a RELAY_SENDME to OP
which may respond with another RELAY_SENDME back to OR right? Do BOTH of
these RELAY_SENDMEs cause (both?) the OR's windows to increase (by 100)?
So ORs have freedom to send out tons of RELAY_SENDMEs to increase its
windows? So OPs have freedom to send out tons of RELAY_SENDMEs to
increase OR windows? Then why aren't windows vulnerable to attack since
both ORs and OPs can just pump out more RELAY_SENDMEs to increase windows
whenever they want? What prevents manipulation?
