= Devuan "Tor" Service(s)
This is a short note about the administration of "Tor" service(s) on
the Devuan infrastructure.
There is a "Tor node" on +pkgmaster.devuan.org+ in order to support
using the +tor-http+ method for +apt+ package access.
In addition to providing access to +pkgmaster.devuan.org+ via the
"onion" address, this "Tor node" is also set up as "Exit node" for
access to other Devuan services:
The exact list of permitted access is found in +/etc/tor/torrc+ (at
+pkgmaster.devuan.org+). which includes an enumeration of all allowed
services via their "external" IP addresses (both ipv4 and ipv6) and
ports for HTTP and HTTPS. This restrictive configuration intends to
ensure that the "Tor node' cannot be misused for improper activity
Note that the configuration needs update when there is a change to
service IP addresses. See also +/root/check-tor-services.sh+.
