Does it make any sense it terms of perfomance and latency?As far as i know TOR is a transports layer protocol trying to encapsulate the cells with onion routing in order to enhanse privacy.Since sip is widely used as a session protocol for voip calls what do you believe about perfomances of that incarnation?
I made my thesis this year, whose subject was SIP over Tor. Soon you will be able to read a paper we prepare about this.
To the point, I made measurements of delay when using SIP over Tor and I could say the results where quite interesting. Both caller's and callee's servers should use Tor, so if they have a really fast internet connection, then delay is not as much as you think.
The real problem of SIP is that in a call establishment, many untrusted proxies, may intervene. This is where you need a privacy protection system, like Tor.
Let's suppose, Bob wants to call Alice. His smartphone is using Orbot to connect to the Tor Network. Alice is registered to a Server A. If Server A uses Tor for his connections, then he will retransmit the INVITE message to Alice, through Tor. After that, Alice will response to the last Tor node, who sent the request. In this case, both sides are protected, while only the caller and callee's Server use Tor.
As everyone knows, Tor works only on TCP while VoIP services work on UDP and that offers a slightly longer delay. But this delay in real action is NOT noticeable. In addition, Tor will be used only on Call establishment. After the call is established, users can talk to each other without using Tor. It's not that reasonable to use Tor in a direct "user to user" connection.
Remember that just using TOR for SIP (and not for actual data) isn't good for anonymizing your connection.
Using voip over TOR is definitely foolish, because TOR is slow by it's nature. Your traffic will go through multiple nodes, some being normal home broadband connections. Each connection adds latency, in my experience with rather much (latencies over 200ms are more than common, and it's not my end).
Performance (bandwidth) really depends on your luck. You may get fast connection, or may not. And it also changes regularly, so fast connection may change to horribly slow. Remember that your connection is as slow as slowest link between you and exit node.
