Could retroshare implement TCP-STEALTH

Postby Benni12345 » Fri Aug 15, 2014 1:49 pm

According to these new snowden slides, NSA/GCHQ and others are making port scans on an industrial scale. ... 92681.html

The article advises a new patch, TCP stealth that also works as some library an application can use to counter this.

On the project page of this patch, they write:
"In the future, we plan to integrate Knock with GNUnet to enable running peers in "stealth" mode, which would be useful for users that do not want to make it obvious that they are operating a GNUnet peer at a particular IP address. We hope to convince the kernel community to adopt this patch. Once this happens, we hope that projects that care about privacy and security (for example, Tor and OpenSSH) will add support for this option."

What is good for gnunet would be good for retroshare, I think.

Sure this looks nice. But i read: "Linux kernel patch...". No, this is not ready for Retroshare yet.
