A key challenge to the Tor bridge based circumvention system is to distribute bridges to a large scale of users while avoiding bridges falling into the hands of corrupt users. We propose rBridge — a user reputation system for bridge distribution to limit corrupt users from repeatedly blocking bridges. In addition, we study the privacy preservation problem in bridge distribution and propose a privacy-preserving rBridge scheme.
