It's not that they're detecting the BitTorrent behind the encryption itself -- that's highly unlikely. It's that they're detecting something else characteristic about the encrypted traffic, be it that it's unrecognizable, or that it has some pattern similar to that of BitTorrent. If either route is what your ISP decided to take to throttle, there's nothing we can do about it.

I take it you havent heard this?

Allot Communications, a company whose purpose is to optimize Internet Provider service, has developed a machine capable of detecting said encrypted BitTorrent traffic. The newest version of NetEnforcer can filter through hundreds of applications and protocols, giving the ISP using it the ability to detect subscriber behaviour and effectively take control of Internet traffic (bandwidth).

Since BitTorrent users often account for half of an ISP's total traffic, the freedom to detect encrypted sneaks should make for smoother sailing for those not constantly engaged in downloading.

In the past, similar devices have failed because once ISPs cracked down on constant downloaders, the latter upgraded to their own RC4 encryption devices. For a long time this shift in power took traffic cop priviledges from the ISP and handed them straight to the road ragin' BitTorrent fanatics.

sad day for torrents
