    Researchers To Release an Anonymous BitTorrent Client

    Researchers at Delft University of Technology have taken up the ambitious challenge of creating a BitTorrent client which secures the privacy of its users.

    This is exciting! If there's a group that could really pull this off, it's these guys. Check out these quotes from the article:

    Talking to TorrentFreak, Pouwelse explained that the idea is to add a proxy layer where proxies act as “caches” of content. This can hugely improve downloads speeds, but also makes BitTorrent downloads more private.
    The Triber team has been perfecting the technology for years and it’s expected to be released in two or three months.
    The torrenting community will be watching this closely. With ISPs and governments becoming more strict, privacy is very important. And, if it brings equal or higher speeds, I could see an exodus from traditional BitTorrent.
