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.
