Zusammenfassung:: This paper deals with authorship obfuscation through paraphrasing character trigrams. Bevendorff et al. develop both a greedy and a heuristic obfuscation method prototype and evaluate it against common attribution techniques such as unmasking.
Motivation:: Achieve flexibility and maintain readability.
Ergebnisse:: Unmasking performance decreased by ~3-9 %. Compression performance decreased by 15 %. Path cost decrease of up to 75%. However, text is still barely readable after obfuscation, creates some nonsensical phrases.
