SEC Posted October 8, 2014 Report Share Posted October 8, 2014 In the article named How Does Bleep Work posted at http://engineering.bittorrent.com/2014/09/17/how-does-bleep-work/section "Private Invitations" states: Once two users have each other’s public key, they can find each other’s IP and port on the DHT and establish a direct connection (or via a relay server, if the network condition doesn’t allow direct connections). This raises some questions: 1. How do I know whether my particular conversation is direct P2P?2. How often is the communication P2P and how often is it relayed through a server?3. When the communication is relayed through a server, whom do I need to trust, and how can they trust themselves to not be pressured in the future into some kind of a government surveillance program, in a manner similar to Lavabit and SilentCircle? Any replies addressing these privacy concerns will be appreciated. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
