Anonymity on the Net

Here is an interesting paper on a method for communicating on the internet in a fashion such that people can't tell who is talking to whom. It's meant for anybody who needs to connect somewhere else -- another website, email, etc. where not only do they not want to be eavesdropped on, but they also don't even want a record of any connection at all between parties to be public.

There are alot of good reasons besides the obvious one of John Ashcroft being in the Justice Department. Interestingly they point out that a 'hostile' agent with extraordinary powers can probably defeat the system, but with that said, they also say that that is the intended target to defend against.

In any event, the server and client are both available for download and operation. Very neat.
