Description

Tor's routing mechanism needs research, see #3678. It's only discussed in the tracker and potential researchers are not made aware on it on the tpo website.

Imho it's a high priority project, since the routing mechanism is one of the most important aspects of Tor.

Please add either on https://www.torproject.org/getinvolved/research.html.en and/or
https://www.torproject.org/getinvolved/volunteer.html.en.

It may not look related on the surface, but this is basically the same as https://blog.torproject.org/blog//research-problem-measuring-safety-tor-network

There are also a series of anonbib papers on this topic, e.g:
http://freehaven.net/anonbib/#feamster:wpes2004
http://freehaven.net/anonbib/#DBLP:conf/ccs/EdmanS09
http://freehaven.net/anonbib/#oakland2012-lastor

So researchers are indeed aware of the issue. But because I tell them about it person, not because our website makes it clear, you're right.

It's on the website and researchers can find it already.
