0x00sec has used Cloudflare for a while; mainly for security reasons. Cloudflare is great. And it’s secure as well. But one thing is a little annoying. Captchas.
I use Tor on a daily basis, and the two biggest problems with Tor are Exit Nodes and Captcha’s, Exit nodes have been notorious for running crafty things like sniffers, which means any non-encrypted communication can be picked up. This has put many off Tor altogether; but Tor when used correctly, can be very powerful.
Today we are announcing the new Tor address for 0x00sec. This is an internal .onion, so no exit nodes are never used (or see any unencrypted traffic). All traffic to and from this site can be completely encapsulated within Tor. That means your identity can be completely anonymous when browsing the site.
I think this is a valuable addition to 0x00sec. And I know many of you will appreciate it.
Because it is a Tor Hidden Service; SSL is a tricky topic. We have normal ‘plaintext’ + a https port open; the https is self-signed, because it gets complicated and we’d end up having to sign another certificate to the .onion. For your own sanity, I will post the checksums.
If you’re paranoid; it’s completely safe to use the plaintext non-https port 80. As this is Tor. Anything within Tor is handled by Tor’s encryption layers. So you’re good just loading the .onion as it is.

I hope you all find this very helpful
Have a good one! And as always - stay snappy
So just a quick check up. Who is using the new address?
- Yes! It Rocks!
- Nah, I hate privacy. And TOR.
