After some difficulties, I was able to launch TOR for the first time. The browser took 18 seconds to display the general page of Wikipedia. This will obviously be impossible for my professional activities.
I’m thinking of using (at the same time) several ways to connect to the Internet, depending on my profiles:
without VPN, for activities where I want to be clearly identified; I may never use this profile;
with VPN, for activities for which I don’t mind being “a little” identified. It’s also useful to get around location-related obstacles.
with TOR, for activities for which I want to be totally anonymous.
Can you confirm that I will be able to use these 3 types of connection simultaneously? For example, I will not use a VPN for a personal activity (in qube 1); at the same time, I will use a VPN for my professional activity (in qube 2); at the same time, I will use TOR (whonix) for a secret personal activity (in qube 3).
Won’t these 3 simultaneous connections disclose my activity on TOR? My presence (true or false) in a country?
Another type of network would be a cascade of VPNs (with different suppliers and countries): more secure than a single VPN and a higher throughput than TOR.
I also wonder: How can a VPN provider have VPNs (for example in Germany) without being obliged to keep logs? Some providers claim that they do not keep any logs…
How are the big VPN providers independently audited? Open source? Audit tool? Is it really reliable?
