Why not just use encryption? Or Tor?

Postby drchoffnes on Thu Mar 26, 2009 3:36 pm

Encryption prevents eavesdroppers from inspecting your packet data, but our study shows that an attacker need only monitor your connection patterns -- not the data -- to classify you. Tor disguises the remote endpoint of your connections, but is not meant for P2P. Recent studies show that downloads slow by a factor of 10 when using systems like Tor. SwarmScreen provides privacy against classification while letting your set the slowdown factor.
