I am looking for information regarding (discontinued) software for MacOS which I believe worked in a very similar way Tor does. I remember using it in late 1990s/early 2000s, but I can't recall its name (JAB possibly?). If I remember correctly it was developed by some German university(ies).

I tried searching the Internet but it seems I don't remember enough information or the software was too niche to be remembered.

It's called JAP/Java Anonymizing Proxy otherwise known as JonDoNym.

In 2003 the network operators were compelled by the German Federal Bureau of Criminal Investigation to log mixes within the network for connections visiting specific websites. They subsequently added code to allow the deanonymization of users upon request.
