A proxy has three logical layers: an optional application specific privacy filter that sanitizes the data streams; an application-specific proxy that translates the data streams into an application-independent format accepted by the Onion Routing network; and lastly, an onion proxy that builds and manages the anonymous connections.
All information (onions, data, and network control) are sent through the Onion Routing network in uniform-sized cells.
This allows Onion Routing to mesh well with a wide variety of operational and policy environments.
By shifting trust in this way, Onion Routing can also complement other services like the Anonymizer(2) and LPWA.
