How To Set Up an EC2 Tor Relay with Ansible

With our Net Neutrality rights hanging in the balance, and the recent scandals around Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, there has been a renewed interest in greater privacy when browsing the web. An excellent tool to keep your web browsing private is a browser called Tor. This browser works by connecting to a special anonymized network of relay nodes that bounce traffic around the web in an encrypted, anonymous fashion. In order to help out, anyone can set up their own relays and contribute bandwith and computing resources to this network. This tutorial will show you how to set up a Tor relay using EC2 and Ansible for configuration management.
