Title - Defending Against Website Fingerprinting in Tor

Contract Time

September 1, 2016 - August 31, 2019


The objective of this project is to engage in designing, extensive experimentation, and testing of recently proposed defenses against website fingerprinting attacks in Tor with the goal of near-term deployment. In particular, we are evaluating the WTF-PAD defense, which offers strong protection against the state-of-the-art attacks with no added latency costs and moderate bandwidth overheads that make it appropriate for use in Tor.

The WTF-PAD design also has potential defense applications against a wide variety of related traffic analysis attacks, which we are also investigating.


Final and outcomes reports due 12/29/19
