Towards Improving Congestion Control in Tor
○Timothy Girry Kale・Satoshi Ohzahata・Celimuge Wu・Toshihiko Kato(The Univ. of Electro-Communications)
The onion routing (Tor) network is a low latency anonymity and privacy network. Tor network consists of volunteer-run routers across the world and tunneled traffics through routers using a layered cryptography scheme. This distribution of trust creates resilience in the face of compromise and censorship but it also creates performance and usability issues. Since most of the routers are varying and often limited amounts of bandwidth available to relaying users' traffics.
The major drawbacks of Tor are the slow performance issues, due to excessively high end-to-end delays inhibited by the interactive applications such as web browsing.
