comment Basic question about why it's useful to have VPN encrypt traffic
@Ulkoma why do you find it necessary to use the word "third"? For example, if I were to replace all the times you say "third ISP" with just "ISP" what difference would it make?

"They belong to a third ISP" how do you count third? alpha has an ISP, beta has an ISP (though it may be the same as alpha), and now you're saying yet another ISP owns the public routers?

@Ulkoma ok. So are they public routers they pass through between the home router and the ISP? Who owns them, for example are they technically property of the ISP and are just lacking security so anyone can eavesdrop on them?

comment How can a VPN use a virtual router and not send encrypt traffic and still be safe?
@R15 yes we were talking about MPLS before VPN so that very well may be it. I realized I may have a whole in my understanding. security.stackexchange.com/questions/73589/…

comment What is the purpose of yubikey
You say the password changes every minute. Are you using it as an example or is it actually one minute?

comment What is the purpose of yubikey
What does mean "server"? So Yubikey and the password manager (e.g. Keppass, Lastpass) both know the secret seed and the algorithm (which is open source so is public knowledge) and using the seed and the current time both calculate a deterministic output. Is my understanding correct? If an attacker gained knowledge of the seed, then they would be able to create the password for any time, and yubikey would be defeated? What prevents that from happening?

comment What is the purpose of yubikey
It seems all of your points rely on the fact that is still unclear to me, how can it possibly work if each time it generates a new password? It's not like every program that needs a password is specially designed to handle the case of a Yubikey.

That's interesting, I wonder what is it about Firefox that it can't leave the page even by trying to close the browser.
