Correct? There is that, but they can also in theory replace all of your peers, and thus know what keys you are downloading/uploading. > Given that this would take quite a bit of effort and time, > is there the possibility of putting in the network some decoy nodes > (honey-pots) that could lead to the violators?

Yes -- you actually (hopefully) know and trust each of your peers, unlike opennet strangers. I believe that is the only significant difference. (To infiltrate a/the darknet, physical surveillance / kidnapping / bribing / torture is necessary.) _______________________________________________ Support mailing list Support@freenetproject.org http://news.gmane.org/gmane.network.freenet.support Unsubscribe at http://emu.freenetproject.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/support Or mailto:support-requ...@freenetproject.org?subject=unsubscribe
