    11 However, despite you can configure such a firewall for your needs, there is no standard firewall tool for everybody which works out-of-the-box for most configurations. Without such firewall tool the password authentication doesn't give you more than cookie authentication. So, for layman Tor users, cookie authentication (now working in many systems) is a very simple but still sufficiently secure out-of-the-box solution. Using firewall and password authentication and can do the same and much more, but most of people either don't need it or don't have time and knowledge to configure it.
