Anonymity in the wild (social network)
6 July 2011
Shishir Nagaraja has pointed out that our Drac anonymity system is not the first one to consider an anonymity network overlayed on a social network. The performance versus security of routing messages over a social network was already considered in his work entitled ‘anonymity in the wild’.
This is important prior work and we should have cited it properly. It presents an analysis of an anonymity provided by different synthetic social network topologies, as well as real-world data from LiveJournal.
