Re: Using a network monitor when tor is running.
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
iptraf doesn't do anything other than inspect the stack. whether that is
insecure or not i guess would be something to do with whether you log,
but even then your isp could have a box doing that anyway. watching
traffic in only useful to a snoop if they can identify the sender and
receiver. this therefore would only be useful if they were monitoring
both ends of a pathway.
