A revocable anonymity in Tor

Amadou Moctar Kane

Abstract: This new protocol is based on the idea of introducing a revocable anonymity in Tor, which was presented in our recent paper entitled "Another Tor is possible". Compared to that previous paper, this present scheme simplify the first protocol and reduce the power of the directory server, while maintaining the ability for the Tor community, to break the anonymity of a sender in case of misconduct.

We also take the opportunity of this paper, to appeal the majors internet companies, to help in the creation of a responsible Tor network (without pedophiles, spies, ....), by mixing billions of data flowing through their networks with those of Tor.

Category / Keywords: applications / Tor, cryptography, privacy, anonymity, secret sharing.
