Abstract:
    Cipher Maze will be an anonymous network using proof of concept of onion routing that gives security and anonymity to user data in order to abstain attacker’s malicious intent to sabotage information.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Growing privacy and security concerns accentuated the need to come up with a reasonable anonymity solution. Our idea is inspired by TOR but TOR cannot be used by Pak-military due to surveillance and trust issues. A secure indigenous anonymous network is required to overcome this problem.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   It is of high concern to maintain anonymity and security for online communication by Pak-intelligence agencies. Pak-military and intelligence agencies require anonymous network for the confidentiality of their online information. Armed forces and intelligence agencies are our primary core target.
How will the solution works
    Our idea is to create a portable and rechargeable device that directly connects to the client’s PC. It receives web traffic of client and then routes it through intermediary nodes after encrypting it using symmetric keys of these nodes such that first wrap of encryption is of last node and last one is of first node. The device fetches information of intermediary such as IPs, port numbers etc from directory server securely using Diffie Hellman key exchange and AES-128 bit encryption.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    VPNs and Proxies provide either anonymity or security. TOR is a project of US navy. Pak-military has surveillance issues with TOR and foreign anonymous networks that's why our idea is different.
