Kalitorify – Transparent Proxy through TOR

kalitorify is a shell script for Kali Linux which use iptables settings to create a transparent proxy through Tor Network, the program also allows you to perform various checks like checking the Tor Exit Node (i.e. your public IP when you are under Tor proxy), or if Tor has been configured correctly.

What is Transparent Proxy through Tor?

A transparent proxy is an intermediary system that sits between a user and a content provider. When a user makes a request to a web server, the transparent proxy intercepts the request to perform various actions including caching, redirection and authentication.

Transparent proxy via Tor means that every network application will make its TCP connections through Tor; no application will be able to reveal your IP address by connecting directly. In simple terms, with kalitorify, you can redirect all traffic of your Kali Linux operating system through the Tor Network.

In the Tor project wiki, you find an explanation of what is the “Transparent Proxy through Tor” and related settings. you should read it.

Tor General FAQ

Whonix Do Not recommendations

kalitorify provides transparent proxy management on Tor but does not provide 100% anonymity.

From Arch Linux Wiki about Transparent Torification: Using iptables to transparently torify a system affords comparatively strong leak protection, but it is not a substitute for virtualized torification applications such as Whonix, or TorVM. Applications can still learn your computer’s hostname, MAC address, serial number, timezone, etc. and those with root privileges can disable the firewall entirely. In other words, transparent torification with iptables protects against accidental connections and DNS leaks by misconfigured software, it is not sufficient to protect against malware or software with serious security vulnerabilities.
