obfs4proxy is the most common pluggable transport offered by Tor to evade censorship.

obfs4proxy wasn’t in any of the BSD port systems until now.

This enables *BSD Tor bridge operators to assist censored Tor users accessing the Tor network, in an effort to begin shifting the overwhelming Linux monoculture in bridges and pluggable transports.

The same port that listens for obfs4proxy connections can be employed as a client with some simple torrc changes. The OpenBSD port means TDP can soon enable obfs4proxy as a client pluggable transport, an important milestone.

Any DragonFly BSD porters listening?
