With the popularity of the Web came the popularity of anonymisation communication networks (ACNs) catering for the Web context. That means in particular low latency. Generally, though, anonymisation networks can be classified by different properties such as anonymity goals, strength of adversary or application area.
In this talk we present alternative ACNs to the popular Tor network and their goals. We explain their architectures, properties, and how they achieve anonymity. In particular, we will look at JonDonym, I2P, Freenet, and GNUnet as well as ongoing research projects such as Loopix, Vuvuzela, and Riffle.
We will see that once you understand your requirements, you can optimise your choice of anonymisation networks according to your needs.
