Mixnets working session

Loopix - https://arxiv.org/abs/1703.00536

  • Mix nodes stratified in a circle topology gives a compromise between doing some future proof and scalability
  • Exponential delays are memoryless and give Poisson distribution
  • Cover traffic streams : Real/drop, loop, extra drop remainder.
  • Poisson distributions are additive, so different streams of cover traffic can have their parameters tweaked dynamically.
  • Cover traffic costs vs latency

What to transport?

  • Email-like
  • DVCS pushes
  • DB updates (CouchDB?)

Discussed panoramix project

  • Goals pluggable but first: Email (K9 on MTA-to-MTA), E-voting, and privacy friendly gathering of statistics
  • Everybody needs a PKI
