Anonymising technologies have gradually become an important tool in the protection of citizens‘ and human rights activists‘ privacy. Many of these technologies are also used for illegal purposes by terrorists and organised crimes groups that aim to remain anonymous in order to escape criminal prosecution. Privacy has never been a subject of so much debate, yet it has also never been as jeopardised by mass surveillance as it is now. The present article has two parts. The first analyses the technical background of anonymising technologies and the second focuses on the legal issues emerging from their pervasive use.
