MIT Researchers Devise New Anonymity Network Following Tor Bug

The researchers say their system provides strong security while using bandwidth much more efficiently than similar solutions. In fact, in their experiments, anonymous users were able to transfer large files in one-tenth the time, compared to existing systems.

"The initial use case that we thought of was to do anonymous file-sharing, where the receiving end and sending end don't know each other," graduate student Albert Kwon, who helped devise the new system, said in a statement. He added that this could help combat the practice of honeypotting — in which spies offer services through a network like Tor to entrap its users.

"We also studied applications in microblogging, something like Twitter, where you want to anonymously broadcast your messages to everyone," Kwon added.
