Many users have heard of Tor browser, allowing to remain anonymous on the Internet.
Last year, researchers at MIT have managed to hack into his system and identify the user.
Now, in collaboration with scientists from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne experts presented their own anonymous network called Riffle, which, as we are assured developers, provides privacy as long as at least one of its server remains safe.
The principle of Riffle is that the server changes the order of messages as they are received and sent to the next server.
The Riffle special encryption technology is used: when you send messages from the computer it is applied several layers of encryption using a public key, and when passing through each server can only be removed one layer.
The final destination and content of the message is known only to the last server, so the system remains anonymous until at least one server is secure.
It is also important that the method can transmit data at ten times faster than conventional network anonymously. This is particularly important when the nodes in these networks are the users’ computers.
Unfortunately, Riffle is not yet ready for mass use. Exact terms of the platform yet unknown exit.
