A report on the Sixth ACM Workshop on Privacy in the Electronic Society (WPES 2007), which was held in Alexandria, Virginia on October 29, 2007, is presented. The technical program for the workshop included three sessions for full-length research submissions, and a session devoted to short papers. The first paper in this session was entitled 'Probabilistic Analysis of Onion Routing in a Black-box Model', which quantitatively studied how, in an onion routing network, an attacker may gain more information of a user's identities when he possesses knowledge of the user's probabilistic behavior. The next paper entitled 'Low-Resource Routing Attacks Against Tor' explored attacks against Tor, an anonymous communication system. The last paper in this session was entitled 'Enhanced Privacy ID: A Direct Anonymous Attestation Scheme with Enhanced Revocation Capabilities.' The last paper presented in this section was titled 'Single-bit Re-encryption with Applications to Distributed Proof Systems.
