'Internet-scale anonymity': Researchers unveil high-speed Tor alternative
An international team of researchers have presented a new routing network they say paves the way for internet-scale anonymity." A more secure alternative to the Tor, the new HORNET suggests better scaling and much greater browsing speeds.
The "High-speed Onion Routing at the Network Layer" (HORNET) was developed by five researchers from the UK, the USA and Switzerland. A research paper, presented earlier this week, outlines details of their project which is yet to undergo large scale tests and a peer review process.
HORNET seems on the surface to be a reaction to a volley of revelations concerning the global surveillance programs, which essentially destroyed the notion of online privacy and anonymity. The developers sought to combine the anonymity of the Dark Net with the high-speed browsing internet users are accustomed to.
