Technical & legal determinants of implementing a Tor exit node

In this paper we describe the ideas and thoughts behind the pre-cautions when implementing a Tor exit node. These nodes are a necessity for the Tor network, but have a bad reputation, both in terms of public perception as well as entries in network address block lists. Additionally, they may lead to legal difficulties for the operator, if illegal traffic is traced back to it. To prevent legal consequences for the person(s) involved and technical difficulties for the university, careful planning and preparation was necessary, which is described in this paper.
