When Privacy tools protect felons


New Hampshire library stands on the frontlines of protecting privacy in a Boston Globe
article addressing a privacy tool the library uses called Tor. Tor is a server that traverses the
network accessing digital back roads and blind spots to evade pursuers tracing their movements
through the World Wide Web. Law enforcement Assistant US Attorney General Leslie Caldwell
argues Tor will strengthen criminal endeavors leaving internet police at a disadvantage because
criminals will not be able to be tract. The local Kilton Public Library fought back law
enforcement by keeping the focus on the intended users. Yes, criminals stand to gain from the
use of Tor, but law enforcement have taken down Silk Road. Silk Road was a black market web
site that dealt in child pornography, illegal drugs, guns, and hosted many more black-market
activities. Law enforcement apprehended the CEO of Silk Road by tracking tangible products
and people. Since the release of this article, the libraries have been reaching out to add Tor to
their facilities now. Law enforcement supporters are still fighting the battle for privacy.

Tor was the focus word used to find the articles I need, but ProQuest database in science and
technology the information was gathered.
Compare the Internet and Journal articles
The Emails Describe DHS TOR Concern and Private Policy were moderate to access on
the scholarly journal database. The advance search brought material up but the articles I needed
focus on Tor servers. The Pro education Journal database used articles housed in privacy. The
timeliness did not vary on the information subject is recent.
