    Hey guys
    Can I have a copy of your paper behind nameless ?
    it wasn't on your site

    Hey @hoshw_twitter
    There are two papers actually, let me check the team and see if we could make both available on the website and if not, when we can do that

    @hoshw_twitter
    thanks

    @mikkokotila
    Hey @hoshw_twitter sorry for the time. You can find all three papers now at http://namel.es
    Would love to hear what you think

    Hi there,
    Stumbled across the site and enjoyed reading the papers. :)

    I’m curious: Have you looked into whether the entropy distribution varies for different traffic types? For instance, since the measurement is based on IP, the use of mobile carrier proxies might impact the entropy calculation. Mobile traffic may look different from desktop in this regard.

    Let me know if i should redirect questions to another channel. Thanks!

    Hi @swuen,
    Thanks for your interest in the project and sharing feedback with us.

    Your comment is very appropriate. It is true that Proxies or NATs which aggregate a large number of users behind a single IP might be an issue in the computation of entropy. There are ways to address this issue, for instance using other user identifiers instead of the IP address such as the pair <IP address, User Agent> or even a cookie id. Using these ids will solve the problem of multiple users assigned to a single identifier (i.e., the IP address). However, these ids have their own problems. For instance, it is very hard for an attacker to fake an IP address whereas faking/modifying a user agent or faking/modifying/eliminating a cookie id is trivial.

    This is an exciting debate. If you have ideas about it, we are happy to listen to them. But probably it is better to discuss it privately to avoid creating too much noise.

    Hi guys,

    I followed the quide of installing 'nameless' at https://github.com/Nameles-Org/Nameles .
    But how can I begin to use it? Do you have the practic docs of how to use it?

    I'am sorry for the silly question.
    Thanks.

    Hi @ally1,
    As the section 3 of the readme says, we do not have yet an API that you can use as a library. But, you can use the dsp_latency_test.cpp code in the dsp-emulator as a template of how to write methods in your program for sending queries to the scoring module and how to handle the replies.
    The test code is in c++, but you can implement a similar scheme in any language for which zeromq is available.
    Thanks for stopping by and write me if you have any specific question.

    @ally1 did you get ahead with Nameles?

    hi @apastor what's the timeline on the API?

    @ottman
    @mikkokotila it'd be great to have a quick call with you and @apastor. We are looking to implement something for our anti-surveillance ad network at minds.com
    and we have developers to assist if it makes sense
    Antonio Pastor
    @apastor
    Hi @ottman, I am currently engaged in other things and have no plans to make an API, in the short term. On the other hand, we can talk next week and collaborations are welcome.

    Hi,
    How to install nameles on MacOS?. Is any document for starting the software updated?
    I have currently got a project to use nameles.
    my email id is kirans1312@gmail.com
    Please contact. Need immediate guidance
    Also my machine has 32GB RAM, running for testing as of now. Isn't this enough for staging environment?
    Mikko Kotila
    @mikkokotila
    Hey @kiransadani
    You can definitely run on MacOS but I'd suggest to rather use Vagrant box running on MacOS...that's the way I do it on my macbook. If you need any help let me know, happy to help.
    32gb RAM is enough. I have run with far less. It's perfect for staging.
    I will send you an email now so you get my contact and we can discuss more.
    Hey @ottman, did you connect with @apastor? I love what you are doing with minds.com, would be glad to talk more with you. We have now one full-time paid dev available for this project, so API is totally possible.

    @mikkokotila :smile:
    nameles has dependencies on 1) docker. 2) Postgres
    Now I have docer running from "root" user
    Postgres running from "kiran" user
    I manually created "nameles" DB on postgres
    Now what next ?

    Hi everyone. I have seen a talk about nameles at The Web Conference this year. I thought it was very interesting
    I would like to invite someone from the nameles project to https://adblockerdevsummit.com. Can you share you email I can send more info to? @mikkokotila @Theophileds_twitter @apastor @ottman @kiransadani
