A personal proxy based on mitmproxy (mitmproxy.org). It will:
Provide reporting and visualization of user traffic
Implement active control measures, including:
a convergence.io implementation
data exfiltration detection
Users will be able to control and interact with the privacy proxy using a web interface exposed from the proxy itself, through a "magic" domain.
Doing this on the proxy as opposed to a browser extension has a number of benefits. Most notably, we can apply the monitoring and control functions to any type of HTTP traffic, based on global proxy settings. This makes it browser independent, and also applies to non-browser applications like Twitter clients.
