University Professor Chastised For Using Tor

Here’s a chilling first-person account of a university professor who was asked to stop using the anonymizing network software, Tor. University IT and campus security staffers came knocking on Prof. Paul Cesarini’s door asking why he was using Tor, and requested that not only he stop using it himself, but also that he not teach his students about it. While sensitive to the problems that a campus IT department faces, Cesarini correctly took a stand for academic freedom, and won’t let this kind of intimidation prevent him from discussing Tor in his classes.
