“Tor metrics are the ammunition that lets Tor and other security advocates argue for a more private and secure Internet from a position of data, rather than just dogma or perspective.”
— Bruce Schneier (June 1, 2016)
Country and ISP diversity are approximated by resolving IP addresses to a country code and an autonomous system. We process the capabilities and properties relays and bridges reported to directory authorities.
This graph shows the number of running relays that have had certain flags assigned by the directory authorities. These flags indicate that a relay should be preferred for either guard ("Guard") or exit positions ("Exit"), that a relay is suitable for high-bandwidth ("Fast") or long-lived circuits ("Stable"), or that a relay is considered a onion service directory ("HSDir").
