The Internet was not designed with anonymity in mind; in fact, one of the original design goals was accountability. However, anonymity has become a necessary and legitimate aim in many applications (browsing the internet, chatting, sending instant messages etc.). In these applications, encryption alone cannot maintain the anonymity required by users. The main reason for this is the fact that in this case only the communication is encrypted; it is still possible to know the source and destination of the communication.
