Most Pluggable Transports, such as obfs4, rely on the use of "bridge" relays. Tal como as retransmissores Tor comuns, as pontes são executadas por voluntários; ao contrário dos retransmissores comuns, contudo, estes não são listados publicamente, por isso um adversário não os pode identificar facilmente.

Using bridges in combination with pluggable transports helps to conceal the fact that you are using Tor, but may slow down the connection compared to using ordinary Tor relays.

Os outros transportes de ligação, tal como "meek", utilizam outras técnicas contra a censura que não se baseiam em pontes. Não precisa de obter os endereços de ponte para utilizar estes transportes.

OBTENÇÃO DE ENDEREÇOS DE PONTE

Porque os endereços de ponte não são públicos, terá de os solicitar. Tem algumas opções:

UTILIZAR MOAT

If you're starting Tor Browser for the first time, click on "Configure Connection" to open the Tor settings window. Under the "Bridges" section, locate "Request a bridge from torproject.org" and click on "Request a Bridge..." for BridgeDB to provide a bridge. Complete the Captcha and click "Submit". Click "Connect" to save your settings.

Or, if you have Tor Browser running, click on "Settings" in the hamburger menu (≡) and then on "Connection" in the sidebar. In the "Bridges" section, locate "Request a bridge from torproject.org" and click on "Request a Bridge..." for BridgeDB to provide a bridge. Complete the Captcha and click "Submit". Your setting will automatically be saved once you close the tab.

Se a sua ligação falha, as pontes que recebeu podem estar desligadas. Por favor, utilize um dos métodos acima para obter mais endereços de ponte e tente novamente.

BRIDGE-MOJI

Each bridge address is represented by a string of emoji characters called Bridge-mojis. The Bridge-mojis can be used to validate that the intended bridge has been added successfully.

Bridge-mojis are human-readable bridge identifiers and do not represent the quality of connection to the Tor network or the state of the bridge. The string of emoji characters cannot be used as input. Users are required to provide the complete bridge address to be able to connect with a bridge.

The bridge addresses can be shared using the QR code or by copying the entire address.
