The previous talk was about trying to get entropy, and I’m going to talk about ignoring entropy. It’s natural to talk about anonymity in a workshop about brief encounters and security protocols, I would say anonymity is the quintessence of brief encounter, you only have a brief encounter if in fact you are anonymous, so you need to be anonymous to guarantee that it is brief, otherwise it is at best pseudonymous, because you’re preserving state from one instance of communication to another.
