Tor : A open source Browser Which will provide you most security ,hide in web , become anonymous but it is out when FBI crack the TOR to catch black hat hackers,but Don,t Worry RIFFLE will the solution of our anonymity.
What is Riffle?
RIFFLE is a new anonymity network developed by Researchers at MIT and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. According to the researchers, Riffle addresses and solves some of the TOR’s flaws and offer better security,privacy, and speed.
How Fiffle Work?
According to the developers, the heart of the RIFFLE system is a series of servers called a Mixnet. It is a setup that passes each user’s traffic through a chain of proxy servers. Each server permutes the order in which it receives messages before passing them on to the next. Since these messages are sent in random order,it makes any attempts of tracing difficult.
RIFFLE also uses onion encryption,a method of wrapping each message in several layers of encryption using a public-key encryption system. This further hardens the security.
Verifiable Shuffle – RIFFLE is more secure than TOR.
Mixnet with onion encryption is secure against passive adversaries i.e. someone who is just observing the traffic. But it is vulnerable to active attacks like someone infiltrates the servers with their own code. To deal with this issue RIFFLE employs a technique called verifiable shuffle. Onion encryption is done in such a way that the server generates a mathematical proof for the messages being sent are valid manipulations of the ones it receives. User messages are sent to all the servers simultaneously and the servers then verify the proof independently.
This technique is used to verify the authenticity of an encrypted message. It is more efficient than the verifiable shuffle but involves the sharing of a private cryptographic key. Verifiable shuffle is thus used only to establish secure connections and then authentication encryption for the remainder of the communication session.
Features of RIFFLE
Anonymous file sharing – The efficiency of Riffle makes it suitable for bandwidth-intensive applications like file sharing. Also, it ensures sender as well as receiver anonymity.
It also supports high efficient microblogging. As per the researchers.
