Stichting Article 12
The aim of the foundation is: to provide information about and promote the right to privacy as described in Article 12 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and to perform everything related to or conducive to this.
- Supporting a privacy-oriented TOR project in the form of setting up and maintaining TOR servers.
With Tor, The Onion Router in full, internet traffic is routed through different tunnels to make it more difficult to trace the internet traffic. About 2.5 million people use the Tor network every day to protect their privacy, as well as to visit websites that are blocked in their country of origin.
The servers that make up the Tor network are public. Regimes that do not want their population to use the Tor network can block the IP addresses of all these servers. To get around such blockages, there are “Tor bridges”. These are private Tor servers that act as a springboard to access the Tor network. Not only are the Tor bridges private, they can also modify their network traffic, making it difficult to see someone using Tor.
The foundation will focus on setting up TOR middle servers and “Tor bridges”.
