Libertas Market Now Operates Exclusively on i2p


Libertas Market, the marketplace that recently announced availability over both Tor and i2p, has moved to i2p exclusively. This is due to difficulties the market has faced while dealing with the ongoing denial of service attacks against a number of onion services.

The Libertas Announcement

In a message on the Libertas Market homepage over Tor, the Libertas Market admin explains that “the Tor network is not suitable for hidden services due to flaws in the network which allow denial of service attacks. These flaws allow law enforcement to determine which hidden services are allowed to operate, whether they are legitimate services or sting operations.”

Libertas Has Moved to i2p

The flaw allowing denial of service attacks is one the Tor Project is actively working on fixing, according to the Tor Project’s issue tracking system. This author has reached out for comment regarding the statement about the vulnerabilities and law enforcement’s ability to identify the locations of hidden services through said vulnerabilities. This post will be updated with a response. The message is possibly referring to the the attacks performed during or around Operation Onymous. (Primarily a traffic confirmation attack paired with a Sybil attack.)

Update: In an encrypted message, the Libertas admin told me the message about law enforcement using flaws to identify hidden services was in reference to the “general network design” of Tor.
