Research: Maximizing privacy of the interledger protocol (ILP) via Tor-like onion routing circuits

The Interledger Protocol (ILP) is a network protocol that facilitates micropayments and settlements between different payment systems. Nevertheless, it leads to the unmasking of all transaction information including transaction amount, sender wallet address, and recipient wallet address. A recently published research paper proposes an application layer, named ILP-CEPA, that operates on top of ILP in order to hide transaction information ... Read More »

Research: Improving Tor circuits’ anonymous communication forwarding strategy

Anonymous communication can be achieved by concealing the relationship between the origin and destination of traffic flow via means of a special method, so that an adversary cannot identify the communication relationship or the data being exchanged between both ends of the communication route. Anonymous protection has to achieve three main goals: recipient anonymity, sender anonymity, and impossibility to correlate ... Read More »

Reconstructing Tor Circuits Using Compartment Adversaries and Monitoring of Cross-border Traffic

The Onion Routing (Tor) protocol represents a well established network routing system that is designed to provide users with low latency communication channels, that cannot be attacked by network level adversaries attempting to identify who is communicating with whom. It is clearly understood how the Tor network behaves whenever an adversary compromises a percentage of the onion routers, and especially ... Read More »
