ABSTRACT
As the Internet has become more popular, it has increas-
ingly been a target and medium for monitoring, censor-
ship, content discrimination, and denial of service. Al-
though anonymizing overlays such as Tor [2] provide
some help to end users in combating these trends, the
overlays themselves have become targets in turn. In this
paper, we take a fresh approach: instead of running Tor
on top of IP, we propose to run Tor instead of IP. We ask:
what might the Internet look like if privacy and censor-
ship resistance had been designed in from scratch? To
be practical, any proposal also needs to be robust to fail-
ures, achieve reasonable efficiency compared to today's
Internet, and be consistent with ISP economic concerns.
Although preliminary, we argue that our design achieves
these goals.
