Previous: Design Goals
For the purposes of this paper, current Web
anonymizing tools are placed into one of two
categories. The first category consists of tools
that attempt to provide connection based anonymity -
that is the tool attempts to hide the identity of
the individual requesting a particular Web page.
The second category consists of tools that attempt
to hide the location or author of a particular Web document.
Although Publius falls into the latter category
we briefly survey connection based anonymity tools
as they can be used in conjunction with Publius to
further protect an author's anonymity.
