Low-cost traffic analysis of Tor

Tor is the second generation onion router supporting the anonymous transport of TCP streams over the Internet. Its low latency makes it very suitable for common tasks, such as Web browsing, but insecure against traffic-analysis attacks by a global passive adversary. We present new traffic-analysis techniques that allow adversaries with only a partial view of the network to infer which nodes are being used to relay the anonymous streams and therefore greatly reduce the anonymity provided by Tor… CONTINUE READING
