To address worries that Tor could either be technically subverted or subject to court orders, Tor developers are now designing the system in such a way that many people can verify if code has been changed and 'eliminate single points of failure,' wrote Mike Perry, lead developer of the Tor Browser, on Monday. 'Even if a government or a criminal obtains our cryptographic keys, our distributed network and its users would be able to detect this fact and report it to us as a security issue,' said Perry.
