[tor-talk] Mozilla Research Grants 2019H1 - "Super Private Browsing"


> RQ12: Privacy & Security for Firefox 

> Mozilla has an interest in
> potentially integrating more of Tor into Firefox, for the purposes of
> providing a Super Private Browsing (SPB) mode for our users. Tor
> offers privacy and anonymity on the Web, features which are sorely
> needed in the modern era of mass surveillance, tracking and
> fingerprinting. However, enabling a large number of additional users
> to make use of the Tor network requires solving for inefficiencies
> currently present in Tor so as to make the protocol optimal to deploy
> at scale. Academic research is just getting started with regards to
> investigating alternative protocol architectures and route selection
> protocols, such as Tor-over-QUIC, employing DTLS, and Walking Onions.
> What alternative protocol architectures and route selection protocols
> would offer acceptable gains in Tor performance? And would they
> preserve Tor properties? Is it truly possible to deploy Tor at scale?
> And what would the full integration of Tor and Firefox look like?
