BBC encoding for jam resistance) Each of these six approaches has different strengths and weaknesses, so each is typically used in different situation. Physical Key Distribution The oldest and simplest method for key distribution is to physically transport the key. This can be slow and cumbersome, but there are several situations where it can be a reasonable way to manage keys. For example, suppose a small number of banks want to transfer money electronically among them. Security is important, because the ability to modify such messages is equivalent to the ability to counterfeit arbitrarily-large amounts of money.

User clicking on a button that posts to HTTPS, or Network Security Figure 10.

Law enforcement would have a hard time convicting these criminals as their illegal acts cannot be easily linked back to them. As with any technology, the pros and cons of online anonymity must be carefully weighed before judging its merit. Most people in the security community are of the opinion that the benefits of anonymizing networks far outweigh the risks. Network Security Onion Routing Goldschlag et al. (1999) introduced the idea of Onion Routing to provide unlinkable communication. It is based on mix cascades (or mixes for short) (Chaum, 1981): messages travel from source to destination via a sequence of proxies randomly chosen by the sender.
