For those with legitimate reason to use the Internet anonymously--diplomats, military and other government agencies, journalists, IT professionals, and others--anonymous networking is an invaluable tool. Anonymous use of the Internet is made difficult by the many websites that know everything about us. Practical Anonymity: Hiding in Plain Sight Online shows you how to use the most effective and widely-used anonymity tools to become invisible online. This practical guide skips the theoretical and technical details and focuses on getting from zero to anonymous as fast as possible. For many, using any of the open-source, peer-reviewed tools for connecting to the Internet anonymously may be (or seem to be) too difficult—but actually using the tools can be pretty simple. The primary market for this book is IT professionals who need/want tools for anonymity to test/work around corporate firewalls and router filtering as well as to provide anonymity tools to their customers.
