    3 It is useful for a variety of reasons to determine if a connection is coming from a Tor node.  Early attempts to determine if a given IP address was a Tor exit used the directory to match IP addresses and exit policies.  This approach had a number of drawbacks, including false negatives when a Tor router exits traffic from a different IP address than its OR port listens on.  The [http://tor.eff.org/svn/trunk/doc/contrib/torel-design.txt Tor DNS-based Exit List] was designed to overcome these problems and provide a simple interface for answering the question: is this a Tor exit?
