David Stainton's technical writing


LeastAuthority TFA GmbH published this blog post I wrote as an introduction to mix networks and anonymous communication.

These Katzenpost mix network design specification documents are the direct result of a three month collaboration with Yawning Angel, George Danezis, Claudia Diaz, Ania Piotrowska and myself. We did this work as part of the H2020 EU project Panoramix (Privacy and Accountability in Networks via Optimized Randomized Mix-nets).

I put together a list of papers to read in order to gain a deeper understanding of mix networks.

I was one of the founders of the Mix Network Bibliography.

In 2014-2015 shortly after the Edward Snowden document leaks I conducted research into TCP injection attacks. This document expounds upon my comprehensive classification of TCP injection attacks and is a result of my work on Honeybadger which is known as the most sophisticated TCP injection attack detection tool.
