"A lot of projects that build anonymous overlay networks on top of the internet, such as Loki, are well-intentioned but claim to be mixnets when they are not because they do not “mix” packets in any meaningful way that prevents attacks."
It’s the current term we use for session: “MixMode is a future project attempting to build a traffic analysis resistant layer for Session which operates on top of the existing low latency onion routing infrastructure. In order to achieve this, MixMode will build upon ideas drawn from two existing systems: Bitmessage and mix networks.” From 6.6.1 in the session whitepaper
My understanding is mixnet comes with some performance degradation. MixMode used to obfuscate packet size will be optional and will operate in conjunction with Lokinet, not optional to obfuscate routing (caveat being this is a closed Session)? I assume similar UX performance degradation will be present to mixnets with MixMode? I don't see Lokinet posing a perceptible performance issue for message traffic given the latency it has demonstrated but I can't appreciate what the MixMode and mixnet performance concerns are at the moment. Sorry if I've confused anyone... including myself here.
From what I know, Mixnets are traditionally p. slow. You have your network delay but then you have the mixing delay. It provides better protection (harder to reverse or untangle) but not ideal for Internet traffic much more ideal for email or messengers.
It's not pressing but useful when it comes to the nuances of the decision making process when using a specific protocol or feature comes into play. There's always give and take based on what benefit is provided for a given cost. If they start to lay down equations I may have to put the brakes on. 😉
i have some problem on our service nodemy node is running and block synced 100% i check contain in different node is same responsebut it can't find in block explorer but balance still lock for stakedit was running smooth more than 60 days but right now i confuse what happen ?https://lokiblocks.com/service_node/f4dfa018e81e62cff290354d2e6208c5ad4dddeb142412b05a6c1e4769a4fb3e
