Remailers are proliferating! Several more will be coming on line soon!
Remailers should keep a directory of other remailers, along with their
keys. They should, at random intervals, send messages to other remailers,
selected at random. They should have a field like
If a remailer on this "ring" sees this field, it will have, say, a 90%
chance of remailing to another remailer in the ring, again, encrypted and
with the traffic-analsysis field.
This will cause a certain amount of random traffic between remailers. A
traffic-analysis message could bounce around many times before finally
ending up in the great /dev/null.
We need two other things: overseas remailers (for those of us who live
under US law). Domestic (US) remailers could have their archives searched
with a searchwarant. However, if your mail has gone accross the oceans a
few times, it would be pretty much impossible to get the neccessary warrants
and cooperation in all the countries its been through.
I'll set up a European remailer if someone else will.
The other thing we need to do is make a list of remailers and their keys and
put it up for ftp on soda.berkeley.edu in ~ftp/pub/cypherpunks. In fact,
there could be an automatic service, whereby remailers automatically send
mail to a remailer at soda, listed their keys and protocols, and the soda
remailer automatically updates a remailer directory.
