I've reviewed the list of forums and this one looks like it might be the one to talk about Tor...at least from a regulatory / policy POV, 

 

As for the technical aspects of Tor, can anyone suggest a more appropriate forum? 

 

Generally, I can't see any forum for discussing computing  / network security.

What type of policies?  I can tell you it breaks IRDs section 22 of the code and goodness knows what Hippa, Firpa and other weirly acronymed policies will make of it.

How does a private network breach any part of IRD's code?

Maybe they mean the IRD's IT policies....  ie: connecting to TOR from within IRD network.

That obviously wouldn't be allowed.  But illegal?  Doubtful.  Which IRD code (they are involved with several)?  And what on earth are hippa, firpa ?

No restrictions on encryption in NZ as far as I know.

Tor as a desktop application fits in desktop computing. Maybe as a Linux application in the Linux forum would be more technical.

TOR runs on any platform - so for technical discussions it could fit in IT Pro, Desktop Computing or LAN/Network/Routers (probably this last one).
