Privacy: The New York Times Now Available as a Tor Onion Service
Direct to NY Times on Tor: https://www.nytimes3xbfgragh.onion
From a Post by Runa Sandavik, Director of Information Security at the NY Times (via Times Open/Medium)
Today we are announcing an experiment in secure communication, and launching an alternative way for people to access our site: we are making the nytimes.com website available as a Tor Onion Service
The New York Times reports on stories all over the world, and our reporting is read by people around the world. Some readers choose to use Tor to access our journalism because they’re technically blocked from accessing our website; or because they worry about local network monitoring; or because they care about online privacy; or simply because that is the method that they prefer.
The New York Times’ Onion Service is both experimental and under development. This means that certain features, such as logins and comments, are disabled until the next phase of our implementation. We will be fine-tuning site performance, so there may be occasional outages while we make improvements to the service. Our goal is to match the features currently available on the main New York Times website.
Over time, we plan to share the lessons that we have learned — and will learn — about scaling and running an Onion Service.
