URL Obfuscation
« on: June 15, 2002, 07:29:20 AM »
Anyone have a speedy filter that can obfuscate URLs outgoing? I've been considering obfuscating the links in my browser start page so that if anybody at my ISP is snooping it will create a lot of work for them. Then I got to thinking that it might be nice to obfuscate all outgoing URLs but I don't want to do it if it will slow me down too much.

Remember! It will also confuse you filters.
(Bypass List and other which are related to an URL)

Is it supposed to work automatically as I browse or just *per url*? If automatically it isn't working like that here. Nice little tool though.

No it does not work automatically. one have to put in the url's or use it's history.

This is a nice project though and I will be spending some of my day trying to make this work in a filter and have it been done automatically. I invite the others to try to make one too.

just in case you want a document describing the techniques:

Also, here's some javascript to do it:

it's a bit long, though.

Great! That means it can be done by a filter.
However, too difficult for me.

Yes, I have been there and I will take the problem with me on the laptop this summer. Why do you guys think I ended up making a new logo up there in the left corner? LOL!!!

I have not come further than to write this javascript function which converts a string to it's hexadecimal value. That will alos obscure it just as fine as the other value. But I have not yet found a way to capture the url from the URL Field, change it and put it back.

<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
var text1 = 'TheURL';
var text2=' ';

for (i=0;i<text1.length;i++){
    text2 += '%'
    text2 += text1.charCodeAt(i).toString(16);
}
document.write (text2); //Just for testing
//-->
</script>

The above function would change http://www.yahļo.com to:

%68%74%74%70%3a%2f%2f%77%77%77%2e%79%61%68%6f%6f%2e%63%6f%6d

Which would get you to the site if pasted into the URL field. But how to do this in RL stands to find out

I also don't know if this can be of any use. The reason I am thinking of it, is that I know my isp sometimes sits there an look at where I am surfing. I don't know what he looks at and where, how and so on. But I was hoping with the use of this to have some fun with him and making it more difficult for him to see it. I am not even sure if this will make it more confusing for him or not. Anyway it is a fun idea. (I know he listens in since he have told me that. It is not a secret)

Imagine their profound disapointment in thinking they've caught you going somewhere naughty, going to the time, trouble and *expense* to decode your URLs and in the end finding out that you're visiting nothing but ordinary sites.

Yes that was what I was smiling about inside myself too LOL. I know he is there looking at the speed of this machine and things like that. I am the fastest machine on their network (surfing speed) and it is just my many years old "Amanda" who is tweaked in all ends. He is also a bit frustrated since I have blocked him in every way I can think of. But I still see him pinging me from time to time, - not getting any response back. So it has become sort af a game we play.
