We investigate the feasibility of mounting a de-anonymization attack against Tor and similar low-latency anonymous communication systems by using NetFlow records. Previous research has shown that adversaries with the ability to eavesdrop in real time at a few internet exchange points can effectively monitor a significant part of the network paths from Tor nodes to destination servers. However, the capacity of current networks makes packet-level monitoring at such a scale quite challenging. We… CONTINUE READING
