Purpose The purpose of this lab is to become familiar with the capabilities of Tor and the security it offers while browsing the web. Materials For this lab, a virtual machine running Windows 7 was used, along with an installation of the Tor browser package. Procedures and Results After downloading and installing Tor, using the browser was extremely simple. IPchicken.com was used to verify the initial IP address that was given. At first, the machine started with an IP address of 85.25.103.69 (as seen in Figure 1). When using Internet Explorer along with IPchicken, a different IP address of 71.88.217.81 (as seen in Figure 2) was given. These IP addresses are different because Tor offers a more secure connection, masking the real IP address with a different IP address. Internet Explorer is not secure; therefore, the actual IP address is seen.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
