I'll be working on arm this summer with Damian Johnson. My project is to
implement the following items in arm:
* A GTK+ frontend for enhancing its appeal for casual users
* Client mode improvements:
-- More details in the header regarding Tor-related info such as
HTTP/SSL/Socks proxies, DNS listener and proxy ports etc. Ports
shall be scanned to determine whether these services are running.
-- Allow users to request new identity.
-- Implement path selection for specifying constraints such as number
of hops in each circuit, entry/middle/exit countries, excluded
countries and number of countries and oceans traversed by the path.
-- A simple configuration interface for setting up Tor in bridge/relay
mode. UPnP shall be used to make the process as painless as possible
for the users.
I write a blog at  which I shall be keeping regularly updated with
GSoC progress. There's an archive for GSoC related posts at  (which
also contains the posts from my last year's participation in the
program). The complete proposal for my project can be read at Google
Docs  or downloaded from .
I can be found idling on Freenode and OFTC in #gsoc, #tor and
#tor-dev. I'm also subscribed to tor-talk and tor-dev. It's really
exciting to be a part of the Tor community and I plan on sticking around
after the summers as well in order to continue contributing to this
wonderful piece of software.
