Towards Measuring Anonymity [chapter]

Claudia Díaz, Stefaan Seys, Joris Claessens, Bart Preneel
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper introduces an information theoretic model that allows to quantify the degree of anonymity provided by schemes for anonymous connections.  ...  The model is shown to be very useful for evaluating the level of privacy a system provides under various attack scenarios, for measuring the amount of information an attacker gets with a particular attack  ...  Therefore, it is not useful to measure the robustness of the system towards attacks.  ...

2008 Proceedings of the 7th ACM workshop on Privacy in the electronic society - WPES '08  
Recently, Edman et al. proposed the system's anonymity level [10], a combinatorial approach to measure the amount of additional information needed to reveal the communication pattern in a mix-based anonymous  ...  s approach fails to capture the anonymity loss caused by subjects sending or receiving more than one message.  ...  A COMBINATORIAL APPROACH TO MEASURING ANONYMITY In [10] Edman et al. present an anonymity metric that measures the amount of information needed to reveal the full set of relationships between the inputs  ...

Towards Measuring Resilience in Anonymous Communication Networks

Fatemeh Shirazi, Claudia Diaz, Joss Wright
2015 Proceedings of the 14th ACM Workshop on Privacy in the Electronic Society - WPES '15  
Existing anonymity metrics [7, 8] are of limited practical use for low-latency anonymous communication networks, as their security is typically evaluated towards nonglobal adversaries [9] .  ...  Most prior work on anonymous communications has focused, to a large extent, on achieving, measuring, and attacking anonymity properties.  ...  ACN users conceal the destination of their communications towards local observers (e.g., their ISP), as well as their identity towards the destination (e.g., a website).  ...

Towards a Privacy Diagnosis Centre: Measuring k-Anonymity

Mohammad Reza Zare Mirakabad, Aman Jantan, Stéphane Bressan
2008 International Symposium on Computer Science and its Applications  
" In this paper we focus on anonymity and, in particular, k-anonymity. The algorithms that we propose leverage two properties of k-anonymity that we exp ress in the form of two lemmas.  ...  "is my data sufficiently anonymous? ", "which information. if available from an outside source, threatens the anonymity ofmy data ?  ...  We make a concrete step towards this idea by presenting and evaluating several algorithms for measuring k-anonymity and k-anonymity with 8suppression.  ...

A three-dimensional approach towards measuring sender anonymity

Neeraj Jaggi, Umesh MarappaReddy, Rajiv Bagai
2011 2011 IEEE Conference on Computer Communications Workshops (INFOCOM WKSHPS)  
We then propose a new isolation measure, based upon presence of outliers in a distribution, and show that this measure is critical towards quantifying the overall anonymity provided by the system.  ...  We provide justification for three distinct aspects of anonymity, important from the perspectives of a user, a system designer, and an attacker, leading to a three-dimensional approach towards measuring  ...  Information theoretic measures towards quantifying the degree of anonymity are discussed in [13] , [10] .  ...

Support for Anonymous as vicarious dissent: Testing the social banditry framework

Giovanni A. Travaglino
2017 Group Processes & Intergroup Relations  
Anonymous.  ...  To test the social banditry framework, two studies investigate attitudes toward Anonymous, a group of hackers who challenge the status quo using online tactics such as trolling.  ...  The resulting four-fold typology encompasses Anonymous. Attitudes toward Anonymous were measured using nine items.  ...

Predictors of Anonymous Cyber Aggression: The Role of Adolescents' Beliefs About Anonymity, Aggression, and the Permanency of Digital Content

Michelle F. Wright
2014 Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking  
All findings are discussed in the context of adolescents' positive attitudes toward ACA, and an appeal for additional research is made to understand more about anonymity in cyberspace.  ...  In addition, higher levels of attitudes toward the permanency of digital content, confidence with not getting caught, beliefs about anonymity, and normative beliefs regarding cyber aggression were related  ...  This measure asked adolescents how often (1 = ''never''; 5 = ''all the time'') they remained anonymous while engaging in aggressive behaviors through SNS, IM, e-mail, chatrooms and mobile phones.  ...

Anonymity as an instructional scaffold in peer assessment: its effects on peer feedback quality and evolution in students' perceptions about peer assessment skills

Tijs Rotsaert, Ernesto Panadero, Tammy Schellens
2017 European Journal of Psychology of Education  
The findings suggest that anonymity can be a valuable scaffold to ease students' importance level towards anonymity and their associated need for practice.  ...  Both students' evolution in peer feedback quality as well as their perceptions were measured.  ...  Students' perceptions towards anonymity, interpersonal variables, and conceptions towards peer assessment (RQ3) These variables were measured before the intervention (henceforth, Measurement Time 1), after  ...

Dong Zhang, Lih-Bin Oh, Hock-Hai Teo
2006 Proceedings of the 39th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS'06)  
It applies the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) to investigate the effects of online anonymity, workplace privacy and punishment level in Acceptable Use Policy on the intention to misuse IT resources.  ...  The level of online anonymity present was found to be a significant predictor of the intention to misuse IT resources in both scenarios while workplace privacy significantly affects the behavioral intention  ...  Hence, this single question was adapted to measure attitude toward ethical behavior.  ...
