Abstract: 

One of the difficulties that face researchers on the anonymity networks field is the lack of anonymity dataset. Researchers need to collect their data to conduct a research or to use a simulated environment to collect the data they need. The lack of such a dataset is due to the nature of the anonymity networks. These anonymity networks aim to provide certain level of privacy for the users. In this paper, we present Anon17, a traffic flow dataset of different anonymity services. Anon17 specifically contains data collected from three anonymity networks; Tor, JonDonym, and I2P.
