  • The Tor network uses a measurement system to estimate its relays' forwarding capacity and to balance traffic among them. This system has been shown to be vulnerable to adversarial manipulation. Moreover, its accuracy and effectiveness in benign circumstances has never been fully quantified. We first obtain such a quantification by analyzing Tor metrics data and performing experiments on the live network. Our results show that Tor currently underestimates its true capacity by about 50% and… CONTINUE READING
