    Another problem is these new anonymity/privacy services
    online now that are capable of extreme encryption and that
    do not use normal VPN. One such "darknet" where they
    use their own prorietary encryption scheme must be giving
    network administrators fits, becuase of the 2048-bit
    scheme that is proprietary and, therefore, cannot be
    intercepted with man in the middle attacks.

    You know nothing of intelligence gathering, do you? I'm no
    expert, but I've read a few book on cryptography. It's an
    interest of mine.

    The very fact that an encrypted communication is taking
    place *IS* information.

    You cannot hide the fact that communication is taking place,
    even if you cannot break the encryption.

    In the context of network administration, finding encrypted
    communication on the network WILL attract attention. The
    admin doesn't need to know what it is. They WILL know it's
    happening and WILL know which computer it's coming from/
    going to.

    THAT is something you seem to be unable to get through your
    thick assed skull.

    Even *I* know this and I only have a lowly home network.

    You seem to be missing something - we (security people) don't need to
    know what is in the tunnel/vpn, all we need to know is that there is a
    tunnel and it's not approved - easy to spot in seconds.

    I think he's the old CHILLY idiot that use to brag about people
    listening to his show and watching the Olympics and that no admin could
    block him or detect it from their work networks....
