I'd like to introduce two new works on website fingerprinting I've  
written with my supervisor, Ian Goldberg.

The first is titled ``On Realistically Attacking Tor with Website  
Fingerprinting''. We talk about methods to allow website  
fingerprinting to perform under realistically difficult scenarios. We  
have a tech report here:


The second is titled ``Walkie-Talkie: An Effective and Efficient  
Defense against Website Fingerprinting''. We propose a new website  
fingerprinting defense that is practically efficient and provably  
effective. We have a tech report here:


Our code for both of those works are here:


In the code we have an implementation of a website fingerprinting  
attack that can take a long series of web page accesses (as one packet  
sequence) as input, and output if it has recognized any page in the  
sequence. We also have an implementation of half-duplex communication  
for Tor Firefox as the core of Walkie-Talkie.
