Tor vs. VPNs and Proxies Slides

I am posting a short set of visual slides that are meant to show the similarities and differences between Tor, VPNs and proxies. I am sharing them in case folks can use them in their work. These are available in PDF and ODP formats under CC-BY-SA license.

Here is just a quick couple of example slides. This one shows what (meta)data is available at various observation points for VPNs:

Observable Metadata with Internet VPNs

The point of this next example slide is that there is no "one tool" that completely solves security and that you have to be mindful of which tool solves which problem.

Use the right tool for the job, and know the job!

Good luck!
