Title: Anonymous Communication System
Telecooperation Lab, Computer Science department, TU-Darmstadt
Freedom of speech is a core value of our society. Anonymity is a crucial requirement to exercise freedom of speech using the Internet. Publish/subscribe (pub/sub) is a message dissemination paradigm well suited for the many-to-many exchange of content in online social media. Using anonymous pub/sub models, users can communicate without disclosing their identities, thus, expressing their opinions freely. A set of algorithms were proposed to realize anonymous pub/sub systems including: establishing the system, routing the messages, preserving the anonymity, and improving the efficiency. Anonymous pub/sub systems have been evaluated so far only by simulation.
In this thesis, we aim to develop and realize a collection of algorithms to establish the system efficiently and preserve the users’ anonymity. The system will be deployed on a raspberry pi testbed.
