This paper describes how anonymity is achieved in GNUnet, a framework for anonymous distributed and secure networking.

The main focus of this work is gap, a simple protocol for anonymous transfer of data which can achieve better anonymity guarantees than many traditional indirection schemes and is additionally more efficient. gap is based on a new perspective on how to achieve anonymity. Based on this new perspective it is possible to relax the requirements stated in traditional indirection
schemes, allowing individual nodes to balance anonymity with efficiency according to their specific needs.
