cc_rider: Much better (and scarier) analysis on our vulnerability to cyber-attacks by former counter-terrorism czar, Richard Clarke:Link
Goetz: Ooops, wrong thread./I'll show myself out.
heypete: I'm not really sure how a compromised network would have any effect whatsoever on VPN traffic (other than possibly not letting it through).If the Chinese (or anyone else, for that matter) can break any of the common ciphers used in -- for example -- OpenVPN, like Blowfish, AES, etc., there's bigger problems. Same thing if they can break RSA-authenticated DH key exchange.If networks running Huawei or ZTE equipment were compromised and sending data to the Chinese, you'd think that there'd be some evidence of traffic being re-routed.
