AbstractServices like online banking require high confidentiality due to the sensitivity of the data being transfered. As a result, online users have turned to anonymity services which offer identity protection and secure communication in their web transactions. While these services are secure and trustworthy, their popularity has attracted many attacks which result in the identification of the users.
