Anonymous Connections and Onion Routing

Human rights workers, activists, and spies, among other groups and even ordinary citizens, may desire the ability to communicate via the Internet without revealing who they are or what they're doing. This can be accomplished through the user of anonymous network protocols, whose goals are to provide anonymity to the network user. Onion routing is a distributed P2P application that allows two peers to communicate anonymously over the network. The main focus is to have a practical network application allowing two users to have anonymous communication and at the same time be resistant to many network security attacks like denial of service attack, man in the middle attack, replay attack, etc.
