Misben: Reliable and Risk Free Approach of Blocking Misbehaving Users in Anonymizing Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

As the people studied in their literature, the recent method was presented for blocking of misbehaving user in the Tor networks called as Nymble. However the limitation which they identified for Nymble is that if the Nymble manager fails, then whole security system is fails. And hence this approach is heavily vulnerable for failure risks. Thus in this paper, the authors are presenting the new extended method for overcoming above said problems. In this paper they propose a secure Misben system, where users acquire an ordered collection of Misbens, a special type of pseudonym, to connect to Websites. Without additional information, these Misbens are computationally hard to link and hence, using the stream of Misbens simulates anonymous access to services.
