The goal of this project is to contribute to the development of TorCloak, a new pluggable transport (PT) for the Tor anonymity network. TorCloak will enable censorship-resistant tunneling of Tor traffic through WebRTC-based covert channels. It will provide strong resistance against traffic analysis attacks based on state-of-the-art machine learning techniques. Specifically, this project will be focused on building a web and mobile frontend for the current TorCloak prototype. Concretely, this involves a) designing a web and mobile US, b) implementing a web application and equivalent mobile, and c) producing documentation and tutorials of the developed applications.
