This paper studies countermeasures to traffic analysis atta cks. A common strategy for such countermeasures is traffic padding. We consider systems where payload traffic may be pad ded to have either constant inter-arrival times or variable inter-arrival times for their packets. The adversary appli es statistical recognition techniques to detect the payloa d tr ffic rates and may use statistical measures, such as sample mean, sampl e variance, or sample entropy, to perform such a detection. We… CONTINUE READING
