Software Projects

  • Stem - Stem is a Python controller library for Tor. With it you can use Tor's control protocol to script against the Tor process, or build things such as arm. Stem's latest version is 1.4.1 (released May 18th, 2015). [▲ UP 2017-08-26 ]
  • OnionScan - Scan Onion Services for Security Issues
  • Onion Balance - OnionBalance provides load-balancing and redundancy for Tor hidden services
  • Onion Pi - Make a Raspberry Pi into a Anonymizing Tor Proxy!
  • Onion Mail - TOR Mail encrypted server for Hidden Services
  • Onion Phone - VOIP tool for calling over Tor
  • Portal - Personal Onion Router To Assure Liberty
  • OnionTip - OnionTip is a web app which parses Tor relay data to allow users to tip volunteers for running relay in a fair and open way.
  • OnionIRC - Docker container for running an IRC server as a Tor hidden service
  • OnionCloud - An Anonymous Heroku-like PaaS
  • onion-manager - Manage individual onions for a Tor based UnrealIRCd network.
  • - Anonymous and fully encrypted peer-to-peer instant messenger for Android using onion routing (via Tor)!
  • Onioncat - An IP-Transparent Tor Hidden Service and I2P Connector
  • ONIOFF - Onion URL Inspector
  • Aliennet - If you're new to Alienet, know that you will not be able to connect to anyother network, until you rest connected. Alienet is a parallel network, out of the worldwide internet as you know: while you're connected to Alienet, your machine will result OFFLINE for the rest of the internet. Is that anonymous enough? Enjoy! [▼ DOWN 2016-09-10 ]

Vanity Onions

  • Scallion - Scallion lets you create vanity GPG keys and addresses (for Tor's hidden services) using OpenCL. Scallion runs on Mono (tested in Arch Linux) and .NET 3.5+ (tested on Windows 7 and Server 2008).
  • Eschalot - Eschalot is a TOR hidden service name generator, it allows one to produce a (partially) customized vanity address using a brute-force method.
  • OnionGen - Generate vanity URLs (i.e. they match a pattern you specify) with your CPU.

Tor Browsers


  • Keyringer - Keyringer lets you manage and share secrets using GnuPG and Git with custom commands to encrypt, decrypt, recrypt, create key pairs, etc. [▲ UP 2017-08-26 ]


  • Confidant Mail - An open-source non-SMTP cryptographic email system optimized for large file attachments. Confidant Mail is the easiest way to use PGP encryption. You can download and install the software and start using it in a few minutes. The only information you have to know and type in is your name, email address, and a password. No complex setup is required. Your public key will be created automatically. [▲ UP 2017-08-26 ]


Dead Hidden Services

Do not simply remove services that appear to be offline from the above list! Services can go down temporarily, so we keep track of when they do and maintain a list of dead hidden services.

  • In addition to an onion simply being gone (Tor cannot resolve the onion), sites that display 404 (and use a known onion/URL based hosting service) are the only other thing that is considered truly DOWN. Presumably the account is gone.
  1. If a service has been down for a while, tag it with Template:Down using {{Down|YYYY-MM-DD}} (your guess as to when it went down).
  2. If a tagged service on the above list of live hidden services has come back up, remove the DOWN tag.
  3. If a tagged service is still down after a month, please move it (along with the DOWN tag) to the list of dead hidden services.
  • The general idea of the remaining four service states below is that, if the Hidden Service Descriptor is available, and something is responding behind it... the service is considered up, and we track that fact on the Main Page. If any of these subsequently go offline, append the DOWN tag and handle as above.
  1. Hello world's / statements, minimal sites, services with low user activity, etc (while boring)... are listed as usual.
  2. Broken services are those that display 404 (and do not use a known hosting service), PHP or other errors (or they fail silently)... any of which prevent the use of the service as intended. They also include blank pages, empty dirs and neglected status notes. Presumably the operator is in limbo. Broken services are tagged with {{Down|YYYY-MM-DD|reason}} (your guess as to when it went broken)
  3. Services that automatically redirect to another service (such as by HTTP protocol or script), have their redirection destinations noted in their descriptions. These are tagged with {{Down|YYYY-MM-DD|Redir to site}} (your guess as to when it went redir)
  4. Sites that are formally closed via announcement are tagged with {{Down|YYYY-MM-DD|Closed}} (your guess as to when it went closed)
