Similar Projects

Here is a list of projects with similar goals to TorBOX. The list is here for reference. Those projects may have interesting thoughts, mistakes, security enhancements, features and so on. The useful stuff can be potentially ported to TorBOX. Some projects inspired the development of TorBOX (missing features, implementation reference etc.).

A few reasons listed in this link not to use some of those projects apply here as well.

Thank you!
