I disagree for several reasons. First is that if the load on the network is high enough, conversations can hide in the noise. This is helped by dummy message generation either by clients or servers (preferably clients to protect against attackers that can monitor every node). Second is that this protocol is not necessarily one-to-one. It naturally supports one-to-many, many-to-one, and many-to-many messages. As these are not distinguished at the message layer, but rather at the application layer, it would take some more sophisticated analysis to determine the nature of the conversation. Third is that prefix selection logic is entirely up to the client. They can choose prefixes that vary with an encrypted pattern, or some variant of that idea, to obfuscate where they are sending their messages. Sean > > ~Griffin > > -- > Too many emails?
