Research output: Book/ReportBook


With the wide spread of Internet applications in both the surface net (Internet) and Darknet, the necessity to safeguard privacy and anonymity has become more prominent than ever. In an attempt to assure untraceability and undetectability between entities, as part of the communication process, traditional confidentiality mechanisms have proved insufficient to address attacks against those principles. In addition, different international laws and cross-continental cybercrimes become immune from being affected by a global public policy on how data traffic should be treated. In this article, a holistic view of anonymity preservation approaches and techniques is given with emphasis on the partial articulation of a novel anonymity preservation model based on infrastructure elements, circuit attributes and adversarial engagement rates on clustered and unindexed portions of the cyberspace.
