Research identifies methods to protect against online privacy attacks

June 2, 2017

Researchers at Princeton University recommend steps to combat certain types of Tor’s vulnerabilities in a new paper.  Tor is a software system millions of people use to protect their anonymity online.  The paper is written by Prof. Prateek Mittal, Ph.D. students Yixin Sun and Anne Edmundson, and Nick Feamster, professor of computer science, and Prof. Mung Chiang, the Arthur LeGrand Doty Professor of Electrical Engineering. Support for the project was provided in part by the National Science Foundation, the Open Technology Fund and the U.S. Defense Department.  More details can be found here.
