This is a link to the Raspberry Bridge Project: http://rbb.antitree.com/

I designed a custom Debian-based Raspberry Pi image for Tor (I know there
are dozens out there already [1][2]) with the goal of making it very simple
for any user to run an Obfuscated Bridge Node and have a stable operating
environment. The OS is built from the ground up with Debian Wheezy and is a
few hundred MB.

Some of the features:
- latest stable release of Tor compiled for the RBP architecture
- torpi-config tool that provides a text-based UI to walk them through the
process of setting up a bridge
- minimalist, hardened OS with temporal logging
- keeps obfsproxy up to date on a regular basis

I'd put it all on github but it's about 200mb. So everything besides debian
is on there.
* Source code for custom scripts:
* Design Document:
* Torpi-config Tool:
* Tor deb compiled for RBP: https://github.com/antitree/tor-deb-raspberry-pi
* [BONUS] Tor Ascii Art:

I have a lot of improvements to make, but it's fully functional. The next
revision will expand the torpi-config tool to cover updating Tor, managing
a watchdog service, and returning the specific ports needed to be forwarded
by the application.

Feedback appreciated.
