Tor launches WebTunnel Bridge as another way to bypass censorship
Quote:The Tor Project announced the immediate release of WebTunnel Bridge, a new way for Tor users to bypass censorship. Not all Tor users may fire up the official client to connect to the network and access content on the Internet that would otherwise be blocked.

Depending on the environment, default Tor browser and network connections may not work. This is a problem that so-called bridges attempt to solve. Think of a bridge as a way to access Tor indirectly. There are several options available, and the latest one is WebTunnel Bridge.

The main idea behind WebTunnel Bridge is to obfuscate anything that has to do with Tor. It is designed to look like regular encrypted web traffic using HTTPS. In other words, automated systems that monitor network connections for certain traits or patterns cannot link WebTunnel Bridge traffic to Tor.

Another positive feature of WebTunnel Bridge is that it can be configured to be on the same network endpoint as websites. Anyone checking the connection manually, by loading the address in a web browser or other tool, will notice that the website is being loaded. There is no indication that the same connection may also be used to fuel Tor.

The Tor Project says that this new way of circumventing censorship is ideal for environments that use protocol allow-lists and "a deny-by-default network environment".

Using WebTunnel Bridge

Using the WebTunnel Bridge is slightly more complicated than using Tor directly. Here are the required steps:
  1. Visit this special Tor Project website. It is the Get Bridges page on the website, which allows you to gain access to bridges.
  2. Select webtunnel from the menu on the page.
  3. Activate the "Get Bridges" button.
  4. Solve the captcha that is displayed.
  5. Copy the bridge line.
