    Le Blond et al. (2013) Towards Efficient Traffic-analysis Resistant Anonymity Networks
    http://research.microsoft.com/pubs/199302/sigcomm13-aqua.pdf

    The focus is Aqua, a low-latency/high-bandwidth anonymity network for BitTorrent that resists traffic analysis. But more generally, the literature review is excellent.

    Especially interesting is the attack on Tor using website watermarking in conjunction with single-end measurements of available bandwidth (and data from Atlas). Wild stuff! The tool is LinkWidth.

    Edit: I had never heard of global ISP snooping as a service :eek:
