Hi folks!

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!
