I am not sure how TOR browser works, and wanted to know if I get it at work - will the IT guys be able to see what I am surfing? What kinda of info can they see anyhow?
You cannot assume that your activity will be hidden from your IT department. While TOR should prevent them from sniffing your traffic as it goes over the network, that isn't all you have to worry about.
- Even if they can't see where you are browsing to, your IT department can definitely see that you are using TOR. This may make them rather suspicious.
- Presumably your IT department has Administrator rights on the computer you are using. If they wanted to find out what you are doing, they could install monitoring software that could log all your keystrokes, and even take screenshots of everything you are doing.
