Greetings MIUIers,

Welcome to our new session of Quick Discussion. Our last discussion was Which Feature Do You Want Most in MIUI 10 Global ROM? Here comes another interesting discussion, "TOR Vs I2P: Which One You Prefer? and Why?" When we talk about security and privacy, there are several common acronyms that get thrown around. TOR and I2P are among those. While both of these technologies will keep you anonymous, they work in slight different ways. I2P routes traffic differently than Tor. It performs packet based routing as opposed to Tor’s circuit based routing. Both will be compared and contrasted below.



TOR

Tor encrypts all network traffic, including the next node IP address. Encrypted data passes through multiple randomly selected relays. Tor is valuable as a tool to protect the user’s privacy, but that is not its only function. The other, more infamous use for Tor is as a gateway into the Deep Web, the massive portion of the Web that is not indexed by search engines.


PROS-
  • It supports .onion sites which are impossible you to open on other existing browsers rather than Tor.
  • TOR have huge share in Deep Web and have large database of sites and dark services as compared to I2P

CONS-
  • Tor only encrypts data sent and received within the Tor Browser (or a different browser using Tor software).
  • It does not encrypt network activity for your entire system.

I2P

I2P (Invisible Internet Protocol) is a universal anonymous network layer. All communications over I2P are anonymous and end-to-end encrypted, participantsdon't reveal their real IP addresses. I2P was designed from the ground up to provide a different set of benefits. Its primary function is to be a “network within the internet,” with traffic staying contained in its borders.

PROS-
  • It is probably slightly faster than Tor Browser, if configured properly.
  • It runs from the comfort of your existing browser

CONS-
  • I2P isn’t the best tool for browsing the open web anonymously.
  • I2P only encrypts data sent and received through a configured browser.
  • It does not encrypt network activity for your entire system.

In Short




       * Tor provides one with better anonymous access to the open internet
       * I2P provides one with a more robust and reliable “network within the network”

So, TOR Vs I2P: Which One You Prefer? And Why?

If wanted to be secure, of course choose I2P which is more secure among the two!
