On the industry magazine, Coindesk, organized crypto-conference Consensus 2019, it was announced that the Bitcoin Lighting Network an Update is in the house. The proposal provides for the implementation of the Onion routing (OR) in Bitcoin Lightning. In the case of OR it is the technology, how it comes in Privacy Browser TOR (The Onion Router). The block-stream-developer, Christian Decker was revealed to Coindesk optimistic about the implementation of his suggestion:

This enables some cool new features, including Multi-Path Routing, trampoline-Routing and so on. It is on the agenda for today's Meeting of the[IRC-specification] and I am confident that it is now merged, so we can start the next wave of Features.

Therefore, could the Sphinx on may 14. May enter in the standard specification of Bitcoin Lightning.

Sphinx is Bitcoin Lightning) to make it safer

The Onion Routing (OR) is not sent to a User of the data, including the IP address(n) via a Central Server, but through a random path of servers (Relays or Nodes. A Node can only detect from which Node a data packet has been received and to which she directs it. With each forwarding, the degree of anonymization increases, because each Relay means for the data packet, a further level of encryption. The Nodes That Relay and the User constitute the Onion Routing network. For the path that will take the data packet in the network, there are different ways of Construction.

Conventional OR networks have the disadvantage that an attacker corrupting a Node, and your Private Keys can seize. In this way, he can hack backwards from Node to Node, until he can eventually identify the sender of the data packet. For the path construction, the Bitcoin Lightning Network should use to Decker's proposal, therefore, the Format of the "Sphinx".

Sphinx has the advantage that it obscures the path length, and Position of a Relay of a node. In addition, an attacker who has hacked a Node can draw no conclusions on the previous or subsequent node.
