No, in proof of concept it moves data around. You've given us a
back-of-the-napkin sketch without enough information to actually model
your system. You can say all kinds of nice things about a data
transmission system with various crypto primitives mixed in, but you
cannot truthfully say that your system advances the state of either
anonymity or privacy unless you can show that the properties you wish
to preserve hold throughout the system. *Then* you can say it works in
In order to say that it works in practice, there's a whole different
set of hurdles.
