Hi! It's great you're interested this!

Unfortunately, no. There isn't an all-inclusive book about Tor. This is partly due to no one having any spare time for working on it, and partly due to Tor evolving so quickly the book would be outdated before it reached the publishing presses (along with some other reasons). The current Tor documentation page  has nearly all the details you need, but it's spread across multiple locations. There are high-level overviews and lower-level specifications, but we are missing a middle-level description. The specifications are the core documentation for the different components. If you want something high-level you can look at  section (a) and the EFF's "Tor and HTTPS" website . If you need more details about how this all works,  section (k) has links for the various parts of Tor. In particular, the Tor Design paper (The Second Generation Onion Router) is still relevant, although many parts of Tor today are different. There is a series of blog posts from a few years ago describing updates since that paper was published  (although some of that information is now old, too). Section (i) at  has links for some interesting videos, too.  https://www.torproject.org/docs/documentation  https://www.eff.org/pages/tor-and-https  https://blog.torproject.org/top-changes-tor-2004-design-paper-part-1  https://blog.torproject.org/top-changes-tor-2004-design-paper-part-2  https://blog.torproject.org/top-changes-tor-2004-design-paper-part-3 I hope this helps, Matt -- tor-talk mailing list - email@example.com To unsubscribe or change other settings go to https://lists.torproject.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/tor-talk
