Each Internet communication leaves trails here or there, that can be followed back to the user. Notably, anonymous communication schemes are purposed to hide users' identity as to personal, source and destination location and content information. Notably, no network capability is in existence to completely negate anonymity leakage in network latency, thus, the minimization of anonymity leakage in network latency becomes critically salient. The purpose of this paper is to investigate network latency anonymity leaks, and propose practical techniques for their reduction. In this direction, the authors investigate the following technical question: what implementation techniques can be configured to truly reduce anonymity leaks using deployable systems.
