Has anybody looked at the new HORNET system?


It's a new onion routing design that seems to call for participation
by clients, servers, and network-layer routers; in exchange it claims
extremely good performance and scalability results.

I think it also calls for the use of network-layer features that aren't
present in today's Internet, so it might be hard to get a practical
deployment up and running at the moment.
