Re: [tor-talk] Clarification of Tor's involvement with DARPA's Memex
And to be clear, I think this is a great trend: we need to make onion
services easier to understand and more accessible (and faster and more
robust) for ordinary people, or we'll remain stuck with all the metaphors
that include the word 'dark'.
Realizing that there are many different considerations of which I'm
not aware, (also that this is a feature request of sorts, so please do
point me in the right direction here) I for one would really like to
see TBB automatically translate (for example) "3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion"
into the human readable "DuckDuckGo," perhaps in a similar manner as
with EV SSL cert's, though perhaps only for location-known and
the-content-is-legal-everywhere onion services.
Perhaps some sort of opt-in procedure would be reasonable for those
high-security-yet-not-location-anonymous onion services who really
would rather be more easily identified? That would save the users'
time of verifying their .onion URL's at least (plus, it could possibly
decrease any phishing / link-jacking opportunities as well).
It just seems like all the information is already there, in the Tor
world, that if .onion site operators are okay with being found
geographically... then why keep their business names hidden from the
browser? Vote cast.
