AN.ON: Anonymity.Online (Starke Unbeobachtbarkeit und Anonymität im Internet)

The realization of anonymous and unobservable communication in the Internet is a difficult problem. Most existing systems reduce the security to achieve higher performance. To evaluate the feasibility and costs of anonymity in the Internet and to explore several deployment opportunities we are developing an anonymity system that withstands traffic analysis. Our goal is to develop, implement, evaluate and provide a secure and scaleable technical infrastructure for anonymous communication.
