In reply to John:
So you say all hope is lost, then? That Nineteen Eighty-Four has come
upon us? Don't tell me you give up a white flag so easily. If a system
has been build, it can be broken.
Then lets look to mitigation and obfuscation. What is the lesser of two
evils? I have been suspicious of TOR long enough to stop using it. But
the technology of VPNs don't seem to be the failing point, it's its
What of compromised servers? Installing a network of VPNs or a darknet
on a host of unsuspecting machines, thus leaving them exposed to the
world whilst I comfortably stay obfuscated? Perhaps a more blackhat
approach is the way to go.
I'm only briefly aware of HBGary and others, but from what I've heard
that is the exact reason why I'd prefer to operate under a pseudonym and
not my real identity.
Perhaps some faith should be placed in the design of the P2P DNS
infrastructure? One that could, hopefully, provide a safer haven that
traditional DNS and Internet structure.
