Pisces: Anonymous Communication Using Social Networks

  title={Pisces: Anonymous Communication Using Social Networks},
  author={Prateek Mittal and Matthew K. Wright and Nikita Borisov},
The architectures of deployed anonymity systems such as Tor suffer from two key problems that limit user’s trust in these systems. First, paths for anonymous communication are built without considering trust relationships between users and relays in the system. Second, the network architecture reli es on a set of centralized servers. In this paper, we proposePisces, a decentralized protocol for anonymous communications tha t leverages users’ social links to build circuits for onion routing. We… CONTINUE READING
