This is a ticket to organize the deployment of Marionette as a new pluggable transport integrated into Tor. The original code is currently located at It has already been shown to be compatible with Tor in March in its Python encumbered form. Currently, it can be compiled as a completely standalone binary, and therefore should be easy to integrate. We would like it to be integrated before the end of September.

To run it as a bridge, currently, use the torcc files in the etc/tor directory in the github repository above.

We are now ready to integrate Marionette, or at least have it evaluated, as a bridge for the Tor browser in its Pythonless form.

At the Tor meeting in March, we successfully operated Marionette as a bridge by implementing the PT v2.0 specification (Thanks ahf!).

Now we have a new version of Marionette which operates as a stand-alone binary (NO PYTHON!). I checked that it still forms a bridge, like at the Tor meeting. We also have a wider variety of transports enabled.

We are in the process of writing the documentation for Marionette, but the documentation on the web page should be sufficient for at least getting a full evaluation started. We'd like to have the evaluation complete by the end of next month, hopefully the middle of next month, and stand ready to make any and all changes necessary.

A full set of documentation will also be written for designing your own protocols. This is in process.
