JAP Anon Proxy provides the functionality to surf the web without being observed. This means that neither the requested server nor any observer on the Internet can know which user has viewed which web page - in short, anonymity.
JAP has to be installed on the user's computer to allow him to surf the internet anonymously and without being observed. This is necessary since all requests and all of the servers' answers have to be sent not directly to the web server, rather via a so-called Mix Cascade. These mixes are interposed stations, and all messages are directed through these stations.
Since many users make use of the anon service at the same time, the internet connections of each user are hidden among those of all the other users. Every user could have been responsible for any connection. Nobody, no outstanding person, no other user, not even the operator of the AN.ON service can determine which internet connections were requested by a certain user.
JAP fakes your IP address against websites, and replaces it by another, fixed IP of the AN.ON system. Unfortunately this alone is not enough to ensure the web surfer's anonymity. On many websites there are so-called active contents that may lead to the disclosure of the IP address, and the web browsers send data that may be used for profiling. Currently, JAP does not block such content yet, but this may be done by additional applications.
