Building a Tor implementation in Erlang

Lecture by Alexander Færøy at BornHack in Bornholm, Denmark on September 2, 2016.

Over the past year, I have been hacking, on and off, on a third-party implementation of Tor in the Erlang programming language. While the implementation is far from prime time ready, I believe it’s time to be a bit more public about the project.

During the talk, I will go over some of the design decisions, how things are implemented, and the overall architecture of Talla. I will walk over the first milestones that I hope the project will reach within the nearest future.

No prior knowledge of the Erlang programming language or Tor will be needed to attend this talk.
