Packet Probing Revisited



Brett Morgan weighs his Zilla in on packet probing:

I forsee a future where all communications, yeah even flippant communications between IM clients, will be secured with ssl or ssh wrapping, just to make sure the damn routers don’t degrade service. I know this is happening at a major Uni that I used to work for, and it took the students all of 2 weeks to figure out what was going on, and ssl tunnel everything.

A very real case of adaption and counter-adaption.

Those music-sharing, movie-trading ssl-tunneling college students!
