How can I find a good node that configured strongly?

 You can't ensure
 that none of the Tor nodes in a particular three-node
 circuit aren't run by some three-letter
 government agency.
 are regular checks about expired versions of Tor, poorly
 configured Tor policies on nodes, or other
 explicit bad things, but
 those only catch
 the most obvious insecurities.
 You can run your own relay or bridge, which
 could at least ensure one
 hop isn't
 compromised, not to mention the benefit for the many other
 But ultimately, Tor's topography mitigates
 against one of the three
 nodes in your
 circuit being compromised. If the first hop is
 compromised, then they only know who you are,
 but not where your
 destination is. If the
 last hop is compromised, they only know where
 you're going, but not who you are (unless
 your providing clear text of
 identifying information).
 This happens to be why that quiet individual
 who runs one bridge or
 relay is so vital to
 the integrity of the network.
