Proof of concept transport plugin: superencryption
Nick started work on a socks proxy that will add its own layer of encryption on top of the Tor transport. The goal is to separate the task of making Tor unrecognizable on the wire from the task of achieving Tor's desired authentication and confidentiality requirements.
I think asn picked it up from there, and it's now called obfsproxy.
One of its goals is to act as a proof of concept for our modular transport proposal (#2758 (moved)), but I also want to actually ship it with the Tor bundles for users in blocking countries, so they have a chance against the next DPI-using adversary.
What's the current status? Is it ready to get its own Trac component and its own Tor git repository?
