Abstract

This paper proposes a multiple factor bandwidth strategy (MFBS), an anonymity assessment scheme based on bandwidth strategy. We first analyzed the path selection algorithm mechanism based on bandwidth strategy and anonymity constraint conditions and then elaborated the overall architecture and the key module design of the MFBS scheme. A detailed design was carried out so that it can be applied for the evaluation of Tor’s anonymous communication system. Finally, according to the running data in the node resource file in the anonymous network, we analyzed anonymity from different dimensions. By evaluating the bandwidth consumed by Tor in the actual network, the anonymity of the Tor could be calculated, and a more comprehensive anonymity assessment could be performed. View Full-Text
