    Abstract

    Botnets are a major threat to the Internet landscape and have been responsible for large scale distributed attacks on online services. To make take down measures more difficult, Botnet operators started to incorporate anonymous networks into their software to protect their users and their Botnets. Although privacy and anonymity is an important goal of such services, cyber criminals also benefit from these properties, hiding their identity and location in the shadow of anonymity. This work investigates Botnets in anonymous networks and proposes mitigation strategies against such threat. This research is still in its initial state and is planned to result in a Ph.D. thesis.
