2013 2013 8th International Conference on Communications and Networking in China (CHINACOM)  
We develop a deanonymize attack method based on traffic analysis and choose the {time, stream size} as features for k-means algorithm to mine the association between the first hop traffic and last hop  ...  We study the problem how to break the unlinkability between the senders and recipients in order to identify the source of anonymous traffic in this paper.  ...  In this paper, a de-anonymize attack based on traffic analysis is proposed. Machine learning tools are applied to data analysis.  ...

One open research question in the field of anonymity networks therefore addresses efficient countermeasures to the class of traffic analysis attacks.  ...  Recent work proved that powerful traffic analysis attacks exist which enable an adversary to relate traffic streams in the network and identify users and accessed contents.  ...  COUNTERMEASURES TO TRAFFIC ANALYSIS ATTACKS We focus on two main design aspects for anonymity systems. First, their security features define the expected protection against traffic analysis attacks.  ...

A Survey of Privacy Protection and Network Security in User On-Demand Anonymous Communication

Yun He, Min Zhang, Xiaolong Yang, Jingtang Luo, Yiming Chen
2020 IEEE Access  
Nevertheless, the defense capabilities against attacks in user on-demand anonymous communication are insufficient in anonymous protection ability [7] and resistance to traffic analysis attacks [8], [9]  ...  Some malicious users in the network employ anonymous communication to hide their identities and attack the Internet.  ...  In addition, the transmission paths are vulnerable to traffic analysis attacks. C.  ...

Anonymity on QuickSand

2014 Proceedings of the 13th ACM Workshop on Hot Topics in Networks - HotNets-XIII  
Third, an AS can perform timing analysis even when it sees only one direction of the traffic at both communication ends.  ...  Actually, asymmetric routing increases the fraction of ASes able to analyze a user's traffic. We present a preliminary evaluation of our attacks using measurements of BGP and Tor.  ...  Asymmetric Traffic Analysis In this section, we present a novel traffic-analysis attack that AS-level adversaries can use to compromise user anonymity.  ...

Route Extrapolation for Source and Destination Camouflage in Wireless Ad Hoc Networks [article]

M. Razvi Doomun, K.M. Sunjiv Soyjaudah
2012 arXiv   pre-print
In wireless ad hoc networks, protecting source and destination nodes location privacy is a challenging task due to malicious traffic analysis and privacy attacks.  ...  Existing solutions, such as incorporating fake source destination pairs in the network, provide some privacy of real source and destination nodes against attackers.  ...  Uniformly distributed traffic in an ad hoc wireless network exhibits superior unlinkability performance under traffic analysis attacks. IV.  ...

Review on Attack and Defense in Tor

Muhammad Aamir
2012 International Journal of Information and Network Security (IJINS)  
Tor is currently the most famous tool of anonymous TCP communications for clients who need security, privacy and anonymity in their low-latency communications over the public network such as Internet.  ...  Countermeasures against such attacks are also identified to increase security and anonymity over Tor based communications.  ...  It also assumes that the attacker has inserted a malicious entry node in the network which is used for traffic analysis or illicit snooping.  ...
