Freenet is mostly designed on the assumption that you are posting data that you intend to make public at least within the network. Therefore it's a fair assumption that, at least after the fact, the attacker will be able to identify the keys involved, because they know about the file being inserted. Since we encrypt stuff, if you insert as SSK and then only give the key to trustworthy folks, the attacker can't trace it unless he can get those trustworthy folks to give him the key.
