Description


Tor is a tool that is susceptible to website fingerprinting

When browsing the web, many users would prefer to have privacy. Clients who wish to avoid behavorial marketing, tracking and surveillance could use an anonymizing proxy service such as Tor. Tor, however, is susceptible to website fingerprinting, wherein a local, passive adversary (such as your ISP or those who have access to your ISP's data) can identify a user's behavior according to patterns in their packet sequence. ; taow@cse.ust.hk
