Internet Anonymity, TOR and Scatterchat

Came across an article about the Scatterchat tool, recently released in the Danish Computerworld. The article is in Danish - sorry. Anyway, it is not that important as the important stuff can be found on the EFF web site. EFF has a good article on the TOR network. The aim of TOR is to provide anonymous communication on the internet. Some researchers claim that more money is put into making statistically analyses of the network traffic than trying to decrypt encrypted traffic. Read more about TOR here - and read this research paper on why networks like TOR are very problematic to establish and run. Parts of the paper can be hard to read - but I think I got the most out of it without needing to understand all the formulas therein.
