Abstract
The design of anonymous communication systems is a relatively new field, but the desire to quantify the security these systems offer has been an important topic of research since its beginning. In recent years, anonymous communication systems have evolved from obscure tools used by specialists to mass-market software used by millions of people. In many cases the users of these tools are depending on the anonymity offered to protect their liberty, or more. As such, it is of critical importance that not only can we quantify the anonymity these tools offer, but that the metrics used represent realistic expectations, can be communicated clearly, and the implementations actually offer the anonymity they promise. This paper will discuss how metrics, and the techniques used to measure them, have been developed for anonymous communication tools including low-latency networks and high-latency email systems. © 2014 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
