Fake bitmessage noise script

I hacked a script that: connects to bitmessage API; starts a random timer; creates and deletes temporary addresses; creates and sends fake messages to the temporary addresses. The fake messages: send at random intervals; are each of unique randomly generated content; are each of random text size; each have a random TTL; If a couple dozen nodes were running this script it would sustain some good noise to make attacks on the protocol harder.

Hmm. I don't know. I'll have to see the code to see exactly what you are doing to make a determination on usefulness. Mostly, I don't see the need to generate temporary recipient addresses and 100% valid messages - just fill in the object header with valid data and the encrypted payload remaining fields (that are already effectively random for a valid message anyway) with random data. See https://bitmessage.org/wiki/Protocol_specification#object and https://bitmessage.org/wiki/Protocol_specification#Encrypted_payload

Yes, you're right, the additional noise will help with anonymity. I have a vague plan for adding a config option that will generate dummy objects and insert them into the network. This doesn't require extra addresses, merely to calculate the PoW. Using an address is an overkill, because after creating an address, it will automatically also create a pubkey object with 28 day TTL, and for each message it needs to encrypt and sign. This causes an extra burden on your computer, and since the object type is visible, it may limit the utility. If you want to improve it, create a permanent address, add "dontsendack=True" to its section in keys.dat, and simply send messages to yourself. Just don't forget to delete the messages from inbox later. Peter Surda Bitmessage core developer

I agree that noise always helps to preserv anonymity, it's a good strategy that do work and that military use. It is a perfect complementary strategy to the "Mixminion routing", as described and proposed by ~cliQ and me, to ensure anonymity both at receiving and sending messages.
