14. Open questions (Mar 2018)

  • do we want relays under our control to use for the measurements?
  • algorithm to choose exits?
  • location of the scanners?
  • location of the Web servers?
  • how to increase network diversity?
  • how to distribute better network load around the world?
  • what balance do we want between optimizing performance and maintaining network security?
  • can we use Conflux or something like this? it could be a DDoS against the new relays. this could be done selectively against those relays with the unmeasured flag.
  • if we measure the same relay 10 times, what should we do to combine these numbers?
  • how important is it to keep the slow relays in the network? what does pushing them out do to network diversity?
  • what balance do we want between optimizing performance and maintaining network security?
  • “proof of storage” protocol, which delegates the bandwidth measurements to little relays, which run in aggregate to measure bigger relays
  • peerflow
