US librarians defy cops, Feds and switch on their Tor exit node

Kilton Public Library in West Lebanon, New Hampshire, hosts Tor exit node. Cops warned it could be used for criminal activity and child abuse images. Board of trustees voted to turn it back on despite warnings. Tor is used to make internet traffic anonymous by routing it through different nodes before it reaches its final destination. It is also used by political activists and journalists who wish to avoid surveillance. Library Freedom Project aims to use spare bandwidth at US public libraries to expand the Tor network and so safeguard people’s privacy online.
