Dining Cryptographers, The Protocol

Even slower than Tor and JAP together!

Imi gives an introduction into the idea behind DC networks, how and why they work. With demonstration!

Back in 1988, David Chaum proposed a protocol for perfect untracable communication. And it was completly different to the (former invented) Mix Cascades. While the Mixes got all the press (heard of "Tor" and "JAP"? Told you!), the idea of DC networks were silently ignored by the majority of the community.

This talk is to show how DC networks work, why they are secure and presents an implementation.
