Thanks! I am looking forward to study your new work and hope we can
include it into Tor Browser.

> 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:
> http://cacr.uwaterloo.ca/techreports/2015/cacr2015-09.pdf

On https://crysp.uwaterloo.ca/software/webfingerprint/ the link to this
report just points to https://crysp.uwaterloo.ca/software/webfingerprint/


> 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:
> http://cacr.uwaterloo.ca/techreports/2015/cacr2015-08.pdf
> Our code for both of those works are here:
> https://crysp.uwaterloo.ca/software/webfingerprint/
> 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.
