'You Are Not Anonymous on Tor' - Study Shows Privacy Network Offers Superficial Anonymity.

The paper “Tor 0day” stresses that it is pretty much an “open secret” between those who know, that users “are not anonymous on Tor.” The research is part one of a new series and a follow up will publish data that describes “a lot of vulnerabilities for Tor.” The hacker describes in part one how to “detect people as they connect to the Tor network (both directly and through bridges)” and why the attacks are defined as “zero-day attacks.”.

Further, the blog post shows the reader how to identify the real network address of Tor users by tracking Tor bridge users and uncovering all the bridges.

The study shows that anyone leveraging the Tor network should be very leery of these types of zero-day attacks and what’s worse is “none of the exploits in [the] blog entry are new or novel,” the researcher stressed.

“People often think that Tor provides network anonymity for users and hidden services.

“Someone with enough incentive can block Tor connections, uniquely track bridge users, map exit traffic to users, or find hidden service network addresses,” the first “Tor 0-day” paper concludes.

Nym’s website also says that Tor’s anonymity features can be compromised by entities capable of “monitoring the entire network’s ‘entry’ and ‘exit’ nodes.” In contrast, the Nym project’s ‘lite paper’ details that the Nym network “is a decentralized and tokenized infrastructure providing holistic privacy from the network layer to the application layer.”?
