[tor-project] Cecylia's Monthly Status Report, March 2022

Hi everyone,

This is my status report for March 2022.

My work falls into three main areas:

1. Progress on Conjure pluggable transport

I have begun adapting Conjure[0] to a Tor pluggable transport, using their Go API[1]. The work in progress client is so far mostly a stub PT and lives on Gitlab[2].

I have also been working on setting up a robust local testing environment to run the Conjure refraction networking station[3] that the registration with Conjure station works as expected.

2. On-boarding and knowledge transfer for sponsor 28 deliverables

Since Tor Project hired a new developer to take over the remaining sponsor 28 work, I've been documenting and helping transfer knowledge of the unique sponsor 28 requirements and evaluation environments.

3. Snowflake simulations in Shadow

Not much progress on this during the last month. I spent a very small amount of time helping the Shadow team test out fixes for Go simulations in Shadow [4].
