RIFFLE – A Better TOR Alternative To Protect Privacy.

Riffle: A Better Tor Alternative to Provide Anonymous Communication. Learn about Riffle, a next-generation anonymity network with improved security.

Introduction


TOR is known to be a good option to protect online privacy and browse anonymously. It is free of cost and easy to set up and use. However, it is no more secure as there are many reports of TOR being hacked and even state-sponsored campaigns running for unmasking TOR users. There are techniques like Circuit fingerprinting and tools like Exitmap, TorTunnel, DetecTor etc to decrypt TOR traffic and unmask users and exit nodes. Some better alternatives for TOR is being developed, like the HORNET(Based on high-speed Onion Routing at the Network Layer.). RIFFLE is one such alternative for TOR.

RIFFLE


RIFFLE is a new anonymity network developed by Researchers at MIT and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. According to the researchers, Riffle addresses and solves some of the TOR's flaws and offer better security, privacy, and speed.

Mixnet & Onion Encryption -How RIFFLE works


According to the developers, the heart of the RIFFLE system is a series of servers called a Mixnet. It is a setup that passes each user's traffic through a chain of proxy servers. Each server permutes the order in which it receives messages before passing them on to the next. Since these messages are sent in random order, it makes any attempts of tracing difficult.

RIFFLE also uses onion encryption, a method of wrapping each message in several layers of encryption using a public-key encryption system. This further hardens the security.

Verifiable Shuffle - RIFFLE is more secure than TOR.


Mixnet with onion encryption is secure against passive adversaries i.e. someone who is just observing the traffic. But it is vulnerable to active attacks like someone infiltrates the servers with their own code. To deal with this issue RIFFLE employs a technique called verifiable shuffle. Onion encryption is done in such a way that the server generates a mathematical proof for the messages being sent are valid manipulations of the ones it receives. User messages are sent to all the servers simultaneously and the servers then verify the proof independently.

Authentication encryption


This technique is used to verify the authenticity of an encrypted message. It is more efficient than the verifiable shuffle but involves the sharing of a private cryptographic key. Verifiable shuffle is thus used only to establish secure connections and then authentication encryption for the remainder of the communication session.

Features of RIFFLE


Anonymous file sharing - The efficiency of Riffle makes it suitable for bandwidth-intensive applications like file sharing. Also, it ensures sender as well as receiver anonymity.

Faster than TOR: RIFFLE is found to have better speeds than TOR and it required only one-tenth of the time as compared to TOR and other services. Experimental evaluation yielded a speed of 100KB/s per client in an anonymity set of up to 200 clients.

RIFFLE Tool Speed Comparison

It also supports high efficient microblogging. As per the researchers
"For latency sensitive microblogging, we can support up to 10,000 users with less than one-second latency with 160-byte messages. If the messages can tolerate some delay, we can support more than 100,000 users with less than 10 seconds of latency."

Conclusion


RIFFLE is better than TOR in many ways as it provides better speed, security, and traffic analysis prevention. Though it is still under research, once it becomes popular it will surely be one of the best options for protecting online privacy.
