gMix

Introducing the gmix open source framework for mix implementations. In this paper we introduce the open source software framework gMix which aims to simplify the implementation and evaluation of mix-based systems. gMix is targeted at researchers who want to evaluate new ideas and developers interested in building practical mix systems. The framework consists of a generic architecture structured in logical layers with a clear separation of concerns. Implementations of mix variants and supportive components are organized as plug-ins that can easily be exchanged and extended. We provide reference implementations for several well-known mix concepts.
