Abstract

AnNotify is a scalable service for private, timely and low-cost online notifications, based on anonymous communication, sharding, dummy queries, and Bloom filters. We present the design and analysis of AnNotify, as well as an evaluation of its costs. We outline the design of AnNotify and calculate the concrete advantage of an adversary observing multiple queries. We present a number of extensions, such as generic presence and broadcast notifications, and applications, including notifications for incoming messages in anonymous communications, updates to private cached web and Domain Name Service (DNS) queries.
