My name is Chris and I am also very happy that I've been chosen to take
part in this year's Google Summer of Code program. I'm an Information
Systems student from Germany, finishing my master's degree this summer.
You can find my GSoC abstract here:
In my master thesis I develop an environment to measure the performance
of Tor hidden services and the many sub steps in detail. I want to find
ways to increase the performance of hidden services without decreasing
anonymity. The general path selection (which influences hidden service
performance casually) is not in my focus, but HS protocol level changes are.
I've already implemented some ideas that I'm testing over a few days
right now, so that afterwards I can empirically verify (or falsify) the
impact of those changes. My GSoC work will be based on my tests and will
allow me to take further steps in that direction that cannot be covered
in my thesis due to time restrictions.
If you have any questions, suggestions, or comments, I'm looking forward
to hear from you!
