I was browsing the tor site in order to find an idea for my masters project
in security and I came across the following:


In your project ideas page

You have the following :

Write a fuzzer
for Tor to discover security vulnerabilities. Determine if there are good
fuzzing frameworks out there for what we want. Win fame by getting credit
when we put out a new release because of you!


I have no experience in fuzzers but I think it would be a very nice topic
to learn and on the same time contribute.

I see that it is possible to create a private tor network for testing


And maybe use the command line options to have as one point of input


Bassically I send this email for 2 reasons:

1) To see if there are ways that you guys can help me with this on the


2) To give me any starting tips mostly related to what type of data that
would be good for testing, any other input places from where data can be
fed and generally any kind of usefull info related to this.

Thanks a lot and have a nice day
