There is lot of rumors going on if *** is secured. Well in short it is -
and then it is not. Just to give you a few points on security with ***:

1) *** runs on a centralized server that is a share point to servers
which relay on this server. Your box is connecting too relays not
the *** Server.

2) *** servers require UDP connection, not TCP. You can think of UDP
as more secure, but the real difference is that UDP packets travel one
way (request is sent from the receiver and then fullfilled by the server
but there is no guarantee on data delivery of the packet from the
server, meaning that the server drops the link with requestor as soon
as it gets it - it may deliver it later on however). The relay - is really a
relay in UDP sense - (requests can be made to one server but another
server may fullfill it). Since there is no constant connection being open
it is almost impossible to catch the very small (tidy) request and data
travel from boxes to ***.

3) *** Servers accept only connections that have a receiver ID
attached to the data package. No request from PC or other device can
be made - this really gives much trouble in identifying what the content
is of the *** package or intercepting it. I am not sure if the package
itself is being encrypted somehow - but it will be easy to do if it isn't.
With encrypted packages, even if someone intercepts it - that interception
would become useless.

4) In order for the providers to hunt you down they will need to know
what servers that nFusion boxes are connecting too. To find out, they
will have to intercept the traffic from the centralized server which is
located off-shore (but hard to do explained before). I could not locate
the servers by looking at the routers access logs - I can only find the
servers it is connecting too --- and surprisingly I saw many different
connections (rotating relays) --- which gives me positive vibes about ***.

5) All the providers can do is see that your connection is making some
request for data that is being transfered from a server and has been
identified as suspicious - but before they can even take any action upon
it - the new server can be re-set and there you go, another round of
finding it again will be needed. This is time consuming and very very tidious
and an expensive task (not that the providers cant afford it). Even if the
provider proves that the traffic from your internet connection is suspicious -
they can not prove that it came from your requests and your receiver
(they cant trace back anything beyond your router/modem).

6) "Dave" did go to after the small people on the first occasion of *** (more
then 10 years ago -- ohhh yes do not be surprised *** is nothing new ---
it has been used back in Dave days when a computer was needed that will
serve already descrambled packages to the receiver using waffer boards or
card emulators) - but "Dave" had to physically prove that this was happening
from people trying this (hardware needed to make this function) - unlike today
(no additional hardware is needed - so hard to tell if you are really doing
anything wrong).

The final decision is always up to you to make. I do not want to sound
encouraging or disappointing - use your own judgment - do lots of reading
