2 Outline Overview Problem Solution Questions

3 Anonymity Is it Important? Answer: Tor People’s lives depend on it

Disguise the Tor packets to look like Skype traffic by using already existing Skype VoIP protocol and user authentication system.

13 Solution Bridge

14 Advantages Anyone can use, it’s free!
Can transfer reasonable size of data = no bottleneck Encryption already built in In order to stop Tor, they also have to stop legitimate Skype calls, which is highly unlikely Another big advantage: Harder to block bridges even after they are found

15 Two Methods
