We show that social networks can improve user privacy! We present Pisces, a system for anonymous communication that leverages users’ trusted social contacts. Pisces minimizes an attacker’s ability to compromise user anonymity by explicitly considering social trust in the design of anonymous paths. Pisces is secure against a colluding byzantine adversary, and provides better anonymity than Tor.
