Project Description: The concept of using onion routing in wireless networks to hide IP address has triggered a lot of curiousness among the network users and also the administrators. Networks using onion routing fulfill the need of the users who demand the privacy of their IP address. These networks bounce data through a series of routers to hide the identity of the user and also their physical location. Some of the users really need this secrecy but some users are not worthy of it since their acts are abusive towards different websites. The administrators of these websites are unable to blacklist such users since their identity is not known. As a result they block the complete network using onion routing to ensure protection to their servers. The proposed solution overcomes the latest enigma faced by the website administration due to the usage of onion routing networks. The System Administrators comprising of System Manager and Alias Manager, work in a synchronized manner to establish a secure connection between user, system software and server. The proposed software not only ensures the privacy of user’s IP address with respect to the server but also enables the system administrators to detect any malicious activity and further block the malicious user. The proposed system also includes a module to initiate Cross-Site Scripting Attack in the user module. The System Administrators are able to detect these attacks and block malicious users from accessing the system in future. Thus, the malicious users are not able to access any server data and also not able to violate any more rules and regulations.
