Read this before running ooniprobe!

Running ooniprobe is a potentially risky activity. This greatly depends on the jurisdiction in which you are in and which test you are running. It is technically possible for a person observing your internet connection to be aware of the fact that you are running ooniprobe. This means that if running network measurement tests is something considered to be illegal in your country then you could be spotted.

Furthermore, ooniprobe takes no precautions to protect the install target machine from forensics analysis. If the fact that you have installed or used ooni probe is a liability for you, please be aware of this risk.

Setup ooniprobe

To install ooniprobe you will need the following dependencies:

  • python
  • python-dev
  • python-setuptools
  • build-essential
  • libdumbnet1
  • python-dumbnet
  • python-libpcap
  • tor
  • libgeoip-dev
  • libpcap0.8-dev
  • libssl-dev
  • libffi-dev
  • libdumbnet-dev

On debian based systems this can generally be done by running:

sudo apt-get install -y build-essential libdumbnet-dev libpcap-dev libgeoip-dev libffi-dev python-dev python-pip

When you got them run:

sudo pip install ooniprobe

Using ooniprobe

It is recommended that you start the ooniprobe-agent system daemon that will expose a localhost only Web UI and automatically run tests for you.

This can be done with:
