TOR is one of the most important networks for providing anonymity over the internet. However, in some cases its exit node operators open themselves up to various legal challenges, a fact which discourages participation in the network. In this paper, we propose a mechanism for allowing some users to be voluntarily veriﬁed by trusted third parties, providing a means by which an exit node can verify that they are not the true source of trafﬁc. This is done by extending TOR’s anonymity model to include another class of user, and using a web of trust mechanism to create chains of trust.
